We are a group of software developers and architects primarily in the Boston area that get together and discuss various topics about Patterns, .NET, SQL, and anything else that interests us (The Boston .NET Architecture Group was formerly known as the Boston Code Brew). In December, 2014, we celebrated our 10th Anniversary as a group!
The Boston Office 365 User Group is a community focused on sharing knowledge around Microsoft’s Office 365’s ever-growing, always changing suite of technologies. The group will focus on every level of interest, from those who are just “kicking the tires” to business users, Office 365 administrators and IT pros.
The Boston Network Users Group was founded in December, 1986 and has been serving IT professionals and nonprofessionals since then with monthly meetings on current technical topics and other events. The group is entirely volunteer-run and charges no membership fees (we never have and don’t intend to change).
Our meetings are open to members and nonmembers, for no charge, usually on the first Tuesday of the month. We hold board meetings usually on the third Tuesday of the month and welcome (and encourage) all interested to join us. Consult our web page and our meetup site (www.meetup.com/b-n-u-g) for information.
Agile New England is the leading community of Agile enthusiasts, practitioners and learners in New England.

Come along on a fantastic voyage and learn Hip Hip and how it relates to information security! When I was growing up there were two things that intrigued me, computers and rap music. Using examples from my favorite genre or music, we’ll explore some interesting facets of rap music, and discuss the lessons and parallels to security today. There will be no half steppin’. It will be dope as it allows us to dig into topics such as:
- Is security a fad? How do we differentiate a fad from something here to stay?
- Encouraging youth to become security engineers, a call-to-action for the community
- Deviating from established norms and setting trends, few truly change the industry, and who will change the security industry in the near future?
- Remembering those who have passed on and learning from their work
- How true experts practice their craft (and how to best utilize their skills and share the knowledge)
- Few things are truly original (and it’s okay, in most cases)
- Not all legends reach the same pinnacle of success. What separates the best from the rest?
- How experts make career pivots, and actually pull it off
- New isn’t always better
- We all have beefs (and better ways to resolve them. And no, we’re not going to dig into social media beefs)
