Sarasota .NET Developers Group

The Sarasota .NET Developers group has been in existence since 2004. SarasotaDev focuses on building solutions using Microsoft Azure, Visual Studio, SQL Server, Office, and other related tools and platforms. This is a technically oriented group where our nearly-monthly 1.5 - 2 hour presentations concentrate on code development and software engineering techniques. Check out a list of our past events.

Meetings are generally held on a Tuesday in the middle of the month. Note that our usual location has changed to: Station 2 Innovation Center (offering coworking and business incubation services) located at 912 7th Ave East, Bradenton, FL 34208 (just east of 9th St. E on the south side of 7th Ave - this is SR-64 eastbound).
