.NET University in Columbus, OH – November 8, 2008

Written in


If you are a regular reader of my blog, I need your help.

Jim Holmes and I are putting on a .NET University-style event on November 8, 2008. It will be held at the Columbus Microsoft office (it’s right next to Polaris Mall).

Here’s where I need your help. I don’t need you to register. I don’t need you to attend. I need you to tell the junior developers at your company about this. I need you to tell your friends that have been curious about .NET development about it. You are welcome to attend as well, but if you’re using these technologies regularly, it will probably be a refresher.

This event is going to be covering the basics. Web services, C# and VB.NET 3.5, Visual Studio 2008. AJAX 101, Silverlight 101, and WPF 101.

We want to give developers an opportunity to get up to speed on all of the new development technologies that have come out of Microsoft in the past year or so, and this seems to be a great way to do it.

As soon as registration opens for this event, I will posting that information here as well. If you’re interested in speaking on one of the subjects listed above in a 100-level presentation, please contact me ASAP so we can get everything arranged.

    hey Jeff, great idea! Can I offer one suggestion? A back to basics on Object Oriented Programming. I know you’re doing .NET specifically but I find that there’s sometimes a real gap in OOP proficiency and practical application in C# and VB.NET. Anyway, if there’s room for it, I think it would be a real benefit to the community. If you need anyone to help with anything please feel free to holler at me. Thanks, Leon
