You know... Old habits don't fall off!
And so, I'm still interested in starting and operating (again) a local user group. This one is more in general about topics according to software development, design and data storage than my last ones back in Germany. Because I was maintainer of a regional user group of the German FoxPro User Group I'd like to use my experiences in this field to kick-off a new user group here in Mauritius. This idea is already since the very first beginning on my mind, but because of my work I didn't have the time yet to get more details and so on....
Mauritius Software Developer User Group (MSDUG)
But for sure, I'd like to see way more than just a name, this article and an outdated homepage on the internet. The concepts are there but not fixed yet. Currently, I'm searching a nice location where we can meet regularly. The former user groups seem to have the DCDM in Quatre Bornes as there location. Well, this sounds good, lies central and is accessible from almost anywhere on the island by bus. But I don't like to share the same fate with the others. So, if any Mauritian is reading this article please drop me a mail or leave a comment. Thanks in advance.
Update: Mauritius Software Craftsmanship Community (MSCC)
Finally, back in May 2013 this whole idea got more serious and the Mauritius Software Craftsmanship Community (or short: MSCC) is alive and operational. Currently, we have our regular 'Code & Coffee' sessions on every Wednesday morning, and from time to time organised gatherings on Saturdays. More details and the ability to join the MSCC is possible via the official community site on Meetup.com.
