The mission of the East of Toronto .NET Users Group is to provide advanced, interesting information about the Microsoft .NET Framework. We serve the need of developers to receive the best .NET programming information, and fill their desire to be informed about developments of revolutionary importance as early as possible. We are committed to increasing visibility for our members, and to increasing the visibility of .NET programming in general. We serve the needs of programmers who are currently working with or interested in the .NET platform.
Meetings are free and generally include pizza and giveaways. Come join us at our meetings to learn about .NET technologies, network with your peers and have some fun. We'd love to meet you!
