The best way to network is to show up at the meetings and introduce yourself. The lectures are fun, and are usually followed by an after-party at a nearby restaurant. The lab meetings have a different flavor: they are very informal and give you three hours to geek and learn with your soon-to-be new friends.
Outside of that, the group actively uses the following social networking tools:
Follow us on Twitter or search the “#nashdotnet” hashtag to see what’s up (meeting announcements, atta-geeks, blog posts, member news, etc.)
Join the LinkedIn Group. If you are hiring (or if you are a recruiter) the NashDotNet LinkedIn group is the place to post job openings (here specifically). On the LinkedIn group please observe these rules:
Please reserve the “Discussions” tab for general discussions. If you have a job opening to announce, please post that to the “Jobs” tab. If you have services to offer, please post that to the “Promotions” tab. Also, this is a geographically bounded group; please don’t post jobs that are outside of the greater Nashville area.
