October, I hardly knew the. We were so busy this month, it seems October was gone like a flash! Weather-wise, we were enjoyed a bit of unseasonably warm weather here in Montreal, then old man winter reminded us all what we're heading into for the next few months when he brought us a significant drop of snow.
I'm sure winter sports enthusiast are surely happy about that, but enough about last month, what's in store for us “indoorsey” geek types this month. Well it turns out, quite a bit actually. Here are a few notable events taking place in Montreal this month.

Monday November 22nd 2010, Palais des congrès de Montréal
Cloud computing conference for early adopters who want to exchange ideas concerning this rapidly growing technology.
Friday November 26th 2010, Salon b Bibliocafé
As the title implies, the conference is about books. However, there will be some discussions about how the industry is being influenced by digital media.
So those are the big ones. But I think it's worth mentioning some of the smaller events that take place nearly every month. These include: PHP Quebec's monthly meeting, .Net Saturdays by the Montreal .Net and the the people behind WordCamp Montreal are holding a social drinks event. I don't always list them, so subscribe to their RSS feeds directly to stay current; and for the other once-a-year events, subscribe to ours.
