Code Brews -- Time to 'borrow' an Idea

Over at Longhorn blogs Bill Evjen has posted an entry about Code Brews, an event where a small group of techs meet up and, by the sound of it, have a cross between a show and tell and a number of short tutorials. I have to say I’m very jealous.

Now that I’m working as a full time sysadmin I don’t get to spend any real time writing code so just to keep my hand in I read a number of developers blogs to keep abreast of the emerging ideas. I think Code Brews would be an excellent way to combine good company and neat tech into a single night while actually learning something without the grief of having to start from scratch on your own.

Maybe it’s time to look at Skype / VNC / Video conferencing and doing this kind of thing remotely.
