The Southern Fried stands for one of the most awesome DotNetNuke User Groups of the South! If you attended Southern Fried DNN in 2013, you know what we're talking about!
What's up with Southern Fried?
We used to be QCDUG (hailing from the Queen City of Charlotte), but we decided we needed to branch out over all of the South. So, we changed our name.
Where can I get some Southern Fried?
We normally meet every 3rd Thursday, 6:30pm at Microsoft's Charlotte campus. This location is just inside the NC state line so if you're in the upstate of SC we're not too far from you. Or if you can't make the meeting person, just join the learning and fun via GoToMeeting. We have people from all over the world call in to join in our meetings online. That's what it is all about. Spreading the DNN love!
We promote all things DNN and learn from each other through presentations, discussions, and projects we're working through. While we push ourselves to learn more about DNN, we're a laid back group with an open and relaxed atmosphere. By fostering community we create synergy and from that synergy knowledge is derived. Plus, we have fun and are just a little bit obsessed with DNN.
Well, if you read the paragraph above you don't really need to read this one! Seriously, we are not about redundancy. We are all about awesomeness and pushing DNN to the max. We share ideas, get insight from other developers on project issues and have a great time while doing it. Join us!

The Florida DNN Con was a great event!
Southern Fried DNN takes over Charlotte. Ok, maybe not all of Charlotte, but it still the event people are talking about. Fun and learning was had by all and we promise not to make anyone miss their flights next time around!
We made a DNN logo cake and ate it -- cause that's what you do with cake. Hmmm, Southern Fried DNN, DNN Cake. I think we are seeing a pattern here!
