Birmingham .NET Framework 3.0 Launch Event

24. January 2007 06:40

I meant to blog a reminder about the event last week, but I am a little late now.

Today was the local launch event for .NET Framework 3.0.  Unfortunately, I missed it.  It has been one of those weeks where there literally just aren't enough hours in each day.  I simply had to juggle too many obligations to make it downtown.  From what I hear, the event went really well and was nearly filled to maximum capacity.  It is encouraging to see the Birmingham technology community continue to grow and prosper through these type of events.  I hope that all of you who attended really got something out of it...other than just swag. 

.NET 3.0 is a giant leap forward for developer productivity as well as the capabilities of the platform.  Even though the presentation material is typically at a higher level, there is significant benefit to attending these type of events.  They are an excellent way to get an introductory look at the capabilities of the platform.  I encourage you to take a closer look by digging into some of the specific areas that interest you. 

I hate that I missed the opportunity to network with so many members of the developer community around such cool topics.  It is always fun to chat with folks about power and potential of WCF.  But, just because I missed the event doesn't mean we can't talk about WCF.  Feel free to drop me a line via the form on my blog, which you can access here.  I am always happy to talk tech...especially around WCF (or anything related to services for that matter.)
