Our group (Royal College Group of 2001) arranged the participation of our group for the Bradby Shield which was held on 23rd of September in Kandy. The rugger match was played at Bogambara Grounds Kandy.

As planned we stated from Our college gate around 7am in the morning on that day and came to Kandy around 12.30pm.While we are coming to Kandy we had lot of fun. We came by a Air-conditioned bus so not got much tired when we came to Kandy. Our group made T-Shirts for the Bradby and we wore them to watch the match.

After coming we went here and there and came to the ground around 2.45pm.

The main match started around 4.30pm and Trinity team got ahead our school team. While the match is going there were some “Papare” bands playing music to make us entertained. There were lot of people gathered in the ground to watch the match.

The match ended by Trinity winning the match and we were sad that our school team didn’t perform well.

We left Kandy around 8.15pm and came to Colombo around 11.30pm on that day. Thanks for Dulip who is the chairman of our group and committee members for arranging our group participation for the match.

.NET User Group Meeting September 2006

This time also the user group meeting was held at the same place which is Microsoft Sri Lanka office. I went there around 5.45pm and the meeting got started around 6.15pm.

This time unexpected amount of members came to the meeting. I think more than 60 members came to the meeting and had to bring seats from here and there to provide seats to the crowd. I have been attending user group meeting since March of this year and I think this was the time the highest number of members came according to my knowledge (From the six meetings I have attended).

There were 2 presentations arranged for the meeting. Madawa did a presentation on DAO (Data Access Objects). In this presentation he gave us a better understanding of what DAO is and how to use this concept in the real world enterprise application development.
Also Prasanna did a presentation on Windows Mobile Application Development. In this presentation he showed us new cool features that comes with mobile 5.0 and he showed us how easily those can be implemented.

The meeting ended around 8.15pm.
