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.

I've got my induction session with one of the trainers tomorrow morning to set up an exercise programme

best of luck with that. I'm more fortunate in the southern US regarding weather it sounds, I decided to leave the gym because I never felt like going back inside (i'm inside all day for work as it is...).

By extra I mean that I do normally walk about 40 mins a day between my house and the railway station

This is not an option for me, as I currently have no public transport that could take me to work, and live 25 miles away. Though that may change with my move, and I could realistically begin riding my bicycle the 7 miles. Smile | :)

Do you like running?

I never thought I would, and began my exercising with 1-2 of walking after work, several days per week, or hiking on the weekends. After I improved my fitness a bit I found I just wanted to run. Still not good at it, and when I go for a run it's more half running and half walking, but I do enjoy it. I've actually decided on a bike ride tonight instead to break things up and see some neighborhoods that are more distant. A change of scenary.
