More information on the Western Mass Microsoft Technology Users Group

The Western Mass Microsoft Technology Users Group brings together people interested in Microsoft technologies.  We are C# and VB.NET programmers, Sharepoint gurus, ASP.NET developers, commercial component developers, IT staffers, enterprise database programmers, entrepreneurs and novices.

We come together to learn, meet people, ask questions and create solutions.  Our meetings always feature a speaker, interesting conversation, swag giveaways, free pizza and plenty of time to network and socialize.  Now, we have this online community which we hope will facilitate collaboration between meetings and serve as a growing knowledge store and history of the group.

We regularly have between 20 – 35 members who come to our meetings with a wide range of interests and abilities.  We usually have 1 or 2 meetings per month.  We host developer oriented meetings on the first Tuesday of the month from 6pm – 8pm, and we host IT PRO oriented meetings on the third Tuesday of the month.  Actual times can be found on our EVENTS page.  Meetings are held at MassMutual Learning & Conference Center at 350 Memorial Drive, Chicopee, MA.  Click here for a map.
