User Group Meetings @ MAX

MAX is passionate about building our IT community, empowering organizations and individuals to grow into their most powerful selves. We open our doors several nights each month to user groups, offering them free use of our 10,000 square foot technology training facility. User groups have full access to our classrooms, classroom technology, and our dining area which is perfect for shared meals and networking.

User Groups are a great way to learn more about a specific topic, technology or product. In addition to the groups listed here, you can also check out the Tech Life Cincinnati Meetup. Several local user groups advertise their meetings on the site.

Bring Your User Group to MAX. If you are interested in holding your user group meetings at MAX let’s talk! Email, call, or chat with us.


Cincinnati All Things Mobile


This user group was created to allow XNA geeks come together and have fun building a windows live game or a Windows Phone 7 mobile game. This is purely a fun and educational effort. In addition to on-site at MAX, the meetings are hosted via office live meeting thanks to CINNUG. We encourage you to stop by in person and have fun building games and apps together for Windows Phone 7.

NOTE: We will be using the emulator to build the apps. You don’t need to have a phone to participate.

This group is possible due to support from MAX, CINNUG, and from the local Microsoft DPE team (Brian Prince, Jeff Blankenburg and Bill Steele). Thank you!!
