SRT Solutions decided that we wanted to join in and provide a little stimulus ourselves, for software developers in our area. So, we're hosting an event at Automation Alley, geared toward developers. Next Monday, on June 15, our "Software Stimulus Lab" will provide an opportunity for developers to get together and learn from one another. Software experts from SRT will be on hand to help out with languages and technologies, as well as giving some real-world experience in subversion and bazaar, unit testing and continuous integration. This low-cost event ($75) is all day long and should be both informative and fun. So far, registrants have indicated interest in Java, C#, Scala, F#, Python, and GWT. We'll bring some lab exercises for people to work on, and of course, you're free to bring your own projects as well.
Oh, and the stimulus part: it's free for unemployed developers.
Registration is at: http://srtstimulus.eventbrite.com/
I hope that you will join us.
