July Newsletter


It is that time of year when we are about to take a summer break and give ourselves time to sort out some great sessions for the Autumn/Winter schedule. This is the best time to get in touch and tell us what you want to know about. If you have any requests for topics for upcoming events then please get in touch with us at support@scottishdevelopers.com

Alternatively, if you want an opportunity to get up and speak to a group of software developers on a software development topic or issue then we’d love to know about it. We are always on the look out for speakers who are enthusiastic and passionate about their topic.

Our final event of the season will be in Glasgow on the subject of Developer Testing for SharePoint by Richard Fennell. There are still a few places left if you are interested. If you are used to coming to our events in Glasgow, be aware it is at a different venue. We’ll be at the Ramada Jarvis Glasgow City Hotel on Ingram Street.

We’d like to congratulate Bob Jarvis, an Edinburgh based enterprise architect, on being awarded an MVP by Microsoft in the are of Solution Architecture. [More Information]

At a recent event we had a brief talk by Peter Munro who introduced us to IT4Communities who look for volunteers to help charities. He left us with some leaflets for people to take, but if you didn’t get to that event and want to know more, we’ve put posted the details on the Scottish Developers website.

Finally, we’re looking for book reviews. If you’ve read a development book recently and would like to review it for us we’d love to hear about it. You can get in touch about that by emailing us at the usual address: support@scottishdevelopers.com. In the meantime, we’ve received a review by one of our members, Hamish Hughson, on the book Java EE 5 Development with NetBeans 6 by David R. Heffelfinger.
