Tonight I went along to the Melbourne X User Group, aka MXUG but I’m not sure how people were pronouncing it. In this case the ‘X’ does not refer to anything specific such as X11 or Mac OS X, but to anything at all but usually of a technical persuasion.
I first heard about this group at StixCampNewstead, but I hadn’t managed to make it before. Someone mentioned that prior to being MXUG it was a Rails group, but that wasn’t getting enough traction. That cannot be said of MXUG as there were over 30 people there tonight.
There was plenty in the night, four 15-20 minute talks, six lightning talks and plenty of pizzas! I will be making this one of my regular meetings.
