Windows Phone User Group Cardiff meet-up on June 1st [Developers]

We have another note-worthy meet-up! We won't be covering every event to arise, but just a few on each side of the ocean to help get the word out for new developers and for those who wish to network.

This UK-based event will be held in cardiff (opens in new tab) and will begin at 6pm. It's a session where two speakers will take the audience, separated by application demos and followed by Q&A. The day will officially end at 8pm, but will continue in the local boozer.

Quick detail about the group:

WPUG exists to help UK based developers who are interested in Microsoft’s Windows Phone platform learn from and with each other. With this event we are hoping to continue the success of the first meeting and begin to form regular meetings in Cardiff so registration will ensure that you are informed of future events.

I love the "Pub" at the end. It's so British (or Welsh/Scottish/Irish), it's so "this-side-of-the-ocean". If you're heading over there, let us know how it goes and if the rounds were all on tab. All you have to do is simply register (for free) and turn up.

  • "It's so British (or Welsh/Scottish/Irish)"Just "British" would have done. In your effort not to offend, you've actually left out English. And it's Northern Irish, not Irish.This is brilliant if you struggle with these things:
  • Think you'll find I got things right, Northern Irish? What happened to Southern Ireland? Let's not go into discrimination.
  • No. "Southern Ireland" or, correctly, the Republic of Ireland (or just Ireland), is not part of the United Kingdom. It is a seperate country.
  • Since when was there implication that I was limiting to just the UK? Irish is a general 'outsider' term to cover the entire Ireland. I never implied that the Republic of Ireland was a part of the UK either. I put British to cover Great Britain, which many whom reside outside the UK use as the main title. I then added Welsh, Scottish and Irish to cover the three countries who are a part of the UK and also the RoI - aka south of the north of Ireland. Funny that.
  • You are all wrong :-)The articles seems to imply that British equals English. However in common usage British are a sum of English, Welsh, Scottish, and people of every other nation living on Great Britain island. Irish, while geographically British, don't call themselves like that (because of the whole Northern Ireland problem).
  • So you disagree to agree? You may wish to read that part of the article again. Let me explain; British was used to cover everyone except the RoI, which is often used (as well as English) to describe all countries in one go. I then added in Welsh, Scottish and Irish to cover everyone presently accounted for in the UK, to prevent comments such as "I'm Welsh, not British" etc. to pop up.
