Dr Martin to Speak at Bermuda .NET User Meeting

November 9, 2010

Bermuda’s .NET User Group will be hosting a meeting on November 15 from 5:30 – 8pm at the XL Group building on Bermudiana Road. Guest speakers will be Dr James Martin and Aaron Erickson.

This is a free event with giveaways, cocktails and a chance to network with your peers. It is open to anyone, but most subjects will be geared towards those who work within the technology industry such as software developers, database administrators, or anyone interested in learning more about software development.

The Bermuda .NET Users Group is a not for profit association and is dedicated to advancing .Net development on the Island by sharing knowledge with and learning from each other. Group meetings will be held three times a year and discussions will range from coding techniques to general architecture to .NET “best known methods” – and beyond.

The keynote speaker will be Bermuda-resident Dr. James Martin. Dr. Martin is considered to be one of the fathers in inventing 4th generation development tools and invented CASE (computer aided software engineering), has assisted in pioneering object oriented development, enterprise architecture and design and is best known for his work in database architecture. He has written over 120 books, is currently involved in exploring the innovation of future technology and donated $100 million toward the Dr. James Martin University in Oxford.

Guest speaker Aaron Erickson is a software developer/technology writer/agilist based out of Chicago, IL. His life’s work is to help convert the human intellectual capital into results for companies that empower both the knowledge workers who produce software, and the people for whom that software is designed to serve. He frequently speaks at events such as TechEd, VSLive, and .NET user groups – with a goal of furthering the exchange of ideas – be they technology contributions – or observations about the technology consulting business. He is the author of the book, The Nomadic Developer, a career guide for technology consultants.
