Our .NET User Group in Berlin
Since the beginning of 2015 I am involved in the organizational team of the .NET User Group Berlin-Brandenburg. Many thanks to Wernfried Schwenker, who is the founder of the group.
When I started to give some talks about Microsoft technologies, I traveled around Germany and I meet a lot of developers out there. It is a very interesting time now and it is nice to see what people are doing around. So I was looking for a home here in Berlin and I found the .NET User Group Berlin-Brandenburg.
Since I am very interested in the user group and I want to bring this user group a little bit more forward, I started my engagement in this group. And here is a lot to do with a lot of opportunities. Thanks to Wernfried again, who let me take part in organizational aspects and give me a platform for my talks as well.
Now, I am proud to be a technical community leader here in the capital of Germany. You can find me in the Microsoft Technical Community as a community leader and speaker as well: Microsoft Technical Community.
You can find news and some stories around my work in the user group Berlin-Brandenburg here on my side. There is a lot in the pipeline, so stay tuned! 🙂
Social Media Engagement
A picture says more than a thousand words, so please have a look at our old web site below. The website does not look really modern and it is very static. So we have no event calendar, no real user or member registration and listings, a very restricted download area and so on. Once registered for the newsletter, you could only unsubscribe by sending an email to us. No automatic processes. Finding passed events? Not possible. Getting connected? Not possible as well.
I thought, it would be a great starting point to refresh our user group. So I talked with Wernfried and we decided to completely relaunch our website and to engage in social media. Wow, a lot of work, and it is mine now.
So, first things first, the User Group Berlin-Brandenburg is now on Twitter: .NET User Group Berlin-Brandenburg on Twitter. So do not miss to follow us! Next, we will relaunch the website during the next couple of weeks, to provide more up-to-date content and insights in our user group. So stay in touch with me and our user group to get the latest news! I will report about the work here on my blog.
If you have any comments, critics or suggestions, please do not hesitate to contact me! Looking forward to the next awesome news about the .NET User Group Berlin-Brandenburg!
