Lots Coming Up in Birmingham Area

26. September 2007 11:14

Initially, I was just going to post a reminder about an MSDN event on Thursday, but there is a lot of stuff coming down the pipe over the next couple of weeks or so in the Birmingham, AL area.

Note: All of these events are FREE!

Thursday, September 27th - 1PM to 5PM - MSDN Event
This is my son's first birthday, and it happens to be there is an MSDN event going on as well.  The subjects covered will be Silverlight, WCF, and LINQ.  It will be held at the Regal Cinemas in Trussville from 1PM to 5PM.  I'm not sure whether registration has been completely filled, but it is worth a shot if you are interested in attending.  Here is a link to the registration page.

Thursday, September 27th - 7PM to 8:30PM - Intro to VSTO
This is a special event that will occur after the MSDN event earlier in the day.  Russ Fustino  will be providing an overview of Visual Studio Tools for Office (VSTO).  If you are interested in doing any sort of Office integration, this is a presentation that you don't want to miss.  The event will be held at the Softech Development office in the Galleria Tower.  There will also be free pizza, but space is limited to the first 35 that register.  Click here for the registration page.

The next code camp will be held at UAB.  This is an all day event with lots of interesting topics being covered.  There are still openings for speakers if you are interested or know of anyone that would be.  Breakfast and lunch will be provided.  There should also be some swag to win.  As usual, we will be have a Pub Club after the main event at a location yet to be announced.  Check out the site for more information and a link to registration.
