VA MSDN Events for December

Microsoft’s DCC Geoff Snowman just shared two free upcoming MSDN events for .Net developers:



Newport News: http://msevents.microsoft.com/cui/EventDetail.aspx?culture=en-US&EventID=1032258622


 Chester: http://msevents.microsoft.com/cui/EventDetail.aspx?culture=en-US&EventID=1032258636


There both in mid December, so check them out if you can break free of your end-of-year work committments and come out to learn about OO in .Net, MapPoint, and ASP.Net 1.1 and the upcoming 2.0 release.  I know Microsoft pays attention to turnout at these “secondary locations“ — we’re hardly a Washington DC or New York City — so if a good number of developers come out we’ll likely see more events around here. 


I’ll be staffing a WeProgram.Net user group table at the Newport News event; Susan or another representative from the Hampton Roads SQL Server User Group may be joining me.  Chester is closer to Richmond so I’m not sure what community involvement you’ll see up there.


<guilt target=“Brendan Tompkins“>I’m taking bets whether Brendan Tompkins will show at this event.  He’s participated in all the WeProgram.Net fun events, like the cricket match and the bloggers dinner, but he hasn’t attended any actual WeProgram.Net meetings.  This MSDN event could be a breakthrough for BT!</guilt>


Hope to see you there!

    January — Geoff Snowman is doing Team Services for us. http://www.WeProgram.Net/events.aspx for details.

    Maybe I can name a few more namesand and boost turnout for 2005!

    Ha! I know, I definitely implement IGulitable (grew up Catholic you know) and you’re getting to me. When’s the next meeting?

    I know . . . I’m sure many from this side of the Peninsula went to the Southside a few weeks back — they don’t often make a Newport News VA stop, so people jumped at the Chesapeake opportunity when it came up. It’d be better if they had a new topic or two to mix in there.

    Just implementing the IGuiltable interface on you about the user group stuff, Brendan!

    You know, I thought the cricket event was a little strange for a .NET user group meeting… I almost said, "Um. Grant. This isn’t .NET, it’s just a bunch of guys hitting a tennis ball with a fraternity paddle in a field" But, I didn’t want to embarrass you, and both the Cricket event and the Blogger Dinner involved beer, so I kept my mouth shut.

    About Geoff’s MSDN event, I already saw this! I went to the Chesapeake VA event a couple of weeks ago… Geoff shows some very cool stuff! Recommended!
