Inaugural Financial Services Microsoft Architects/Senior Developer Community meeting, London July 1st

Note: Cross posted from IUpdateable from Eric Nelson.


A new community has popped onto my radar, created and delivered by James Burns, a top chap I have known for many, many years. The aim of the community is to foster dialogue between Architects and Senior Developers across Financial Services in the UK. The format of the first event is a mix of short high level presentations on hot topics that we hear across Financial Services and networking with a few drinks and canapés. It is free to attend for all Architects and Senior Developers. If you wish to attend please email IMHO, worth a punt, if only for the free canapés and a change to network.

Time 6pm-8pm
Date Thursday 1st July

Location SQS UK,7 – 11 Moorgate, London EC2R 6AF (MAP)
