Finnish .NET Developer User Group SANKO founded

Finland has had a distinctive lack of active, developer-oriented user groups. We want to fix this by coming up with a new one, called SANKO (Suomen Aktiivisten .NET-kehittäjien Kerho).

Right now, SANKO operates without a formal basis – instead of bothering with a registered association and whatnot, we want to get down to the business. We have a Facebook page and a LinkedIn group, and you’re welcome to join either.

The real action is, of course, in our meetings. At this time, we aim at organizing 4-6 meetings per year. The agenda for each shall be the usual: a couple of hours of presentations then followed by some snacks and open discussion. The first session will be held on 8th June in Microsoft Finland’s premises (Keilaranta, Espoo). The topic will be “The state of Microsoft Web Development”, and you can sign up already.  All sessions will be in Finnish, and of course, it’s totally free.

I will be delivering the first and last talk in the session. The first one is something of an opening keynote, outlining the tools of the day. The second one provides a near-future view of web development, positioning technologies such as AppFabric, Azure and HTML 5. Also, the esteemed Microsoft C# MVP Jani Järvinen will be providing an overview of MVC 2.0 and Dynamic Data, while Niko Suni will cover the current state of Web Forms. Check out the registration page for a detailed agenda.
