Scottish Developers March Newsletter

 

Welcome

Developer Day Scotland - 2nd May 2009Since the last newsletter delegate registration has opened for Developer Day Scotland 2009. After just two weeks we’ve filled about half the capacity of the venue. If you have not registered yet, there is still some time to do so, but it may not be for long. It is an excellent opportunity to find out about many new technologies, refine your understanding of some existing technologies and keep up with best practice. As with last year SQL Bits are sponsoring a track so there is something for SQL Server DBAs and SQL Developers too.

This coming month we have some exciting sessions. This week Michael Briggs will be showing attendees in Dundee the secrets behind good Search Engine Optimisation without incurring the ire of Google. Colin Gemmel will be talking about IOC and testability in Glasgow. The in Edinburgh at the start of April Andy Gibson will be introducing us to jQuery. If you already know a bit of jQuery then Andy is also doing a deep dive at Developer Day Scotland.

Regards,
Colin Mackay, Chairman, Scottish Developers
