We’ve had a tradition of doing geek dinners in Copenhagen for the past 2 years. It’s always very good fun and there’s a bunch of interesting .NET guys to chat with. However, it has always been very intimate and most of the people going have been there before.

We need new blood and that’s why it’s time to take the geek dinner concept to the next level and the name is .NETworking dinner. The basic concept remains the same but in a much larger scale. It’s still an informal dinner arrangement with free beer, but this time I’m aiming for at least 50 people. This is important from a networking perspective.

The point is to meet a lot of new people in a relaxed atmosphere and talk about coding, business or just plain fun. Hopefully, that will help strengthen the Copenhagen .NET community and open up new opportunities.

Since numbers are important, please tell your colleagues and friends about this event and sign up to the event on Facebook. It’s Tuesday, April 21st after normal work hours and it's free.

It’s that time of year again where you just want a fun evening in the company of your friends and some nice food. Unfortunately, your friends are busy so all you have left is your fellow .NET developer geeks and a brewery.

That’s right folks; it’s time for the first Copenhagen geek dinner Christmas edition. It’s Thursday, December 18th at 7pm at Brewpub in the center of the city. As usual, ZYB will pay for all the beer and as a special Christmas present, Microsoft will sponsor the food. You might have to pay a small amount depending on how many we are going to be, but it will not ruin your budget.

There is only room for 20 people, so sign up right now.

Next Tuesday the 26th, I’m giving a talk about advanced ASP.NET performance optimizations at the Copenhagen .NET User Group. It’s being held at Microsoft’s head quarters in Hellerup and everyone is welcome to swing by from 4pm to 6pm. It’s a great way to get to know the local Copenhagen .NET community and hopefully be part of some great discussions.

My talk will be about the more advanced performance techniques and not the standard viewstate optimization and database caching. I’m doing some demos where we can monitor the individual technique’s performance impact, which is going to be really cool.

At 7pm it’s time for the fourth Copenhagen geek dinner. It’s a great way to end the user group meeting. If you can’t make it to the meeting at 4pm, then you are still more than welcome to join the dinner. Sign up for the geek dinner or just show up.

Best of all, ZYB has once again agreed to pay for the beer so leave the car at home. See ya there.

You might think that ZYB rescued me from loosing data on my mobile phone or helped finding my friends or something like that. That could have been the case, but this time it wasn’t. No, what I’m talking about is much more important – not just for me but for a whole range of people.

ZYBis sponsoring beer for the geek dinner in Copenhagen tonight!

It’s true. For the third consecutive time in the history of the Copenhagen geek dinner, they are willing to pick up the tab. This might not sound that important, but I have seen with my own eyes just how much geeks are able to consume on a night like this. Further more, since the geek dinner is at a brewery in the centre of Copenhagen, it’s easy to see the importance of the majestic gesture by ZYB.

It’s been a while since the last Copenhagen Geek Dinner, so it’s about time for another successful evening in the company of fellow geeks and geekets. It is also time for the Copenhagen Geek Dinner to move into its own group on Facebook, so hurry up and join. I’ve also added a few pictures from the last event.

The upcoming event is also handled by Facebook, so go join the event directly on Facebook where you’ll also be able to see who will participate.

The date is May 7th.
