The user group is a not-for-profit organisation, with a mission to improve the developer community in Scotland. The strategy is to utilise the Web Site, day conferences, evening seminars and other developer events to continuously improve and develop the skillset of members and the general IT community.

Most events are free or low costs, are open for everyone to attend, with no limitations on qualifications, skill levels or experience. If you have a genuine interest in I.T. and development then membership of Scottish Developers may be just for you.

It is important for all members to feel they can contribute to Scottish Developers. This can be by coming to events, presenting sessions, writing articles and being an active member on the forum area of the web site.

That's a good start.

Yes, my legs were quite stiff last week after all that extra walking. Normally I only manage 40 minutes for the whole day (and that is walking too/from the railway station)

Yes, but if you ask me to say "gouranga" I will not be happy.
