comment What happens at [platform] user groups?
Why not go hit a user group outside your normal area of expertise? For instance, Googling on Saskatoon "user group" turns up a VMware user group. Even if you don't use VMware, you'll still learn something and meet other people.

comment How do I tell a senior programmer that I disagree with him
I disagree. In many teams, this would be shirking responsibilities. All team members should give voice to their concerns and ideas, for the benefit of the team. See my answer below for how to do this respectfully.
