I attended the MSDN Northeast Roadshow in Waltham, MA yesterday and strongly recommend that anyone in the Augusta, Maine or Farmington, Connecticut areas check out the show when it is in your area within the next week. Lots of great content ranging from why MVC is not that scary to reasons why you should be looking out for the Silverlight 3 release. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the event, it's a great opportunity to find out what is new and exciting with the Microsoft development world, dodge colorful question reward bricks (the sound of impact on an unsuspecting crowd member is something you won't soon forget), and get the level of jokes that only developers would appreciate. :)
There are some definite highlights I want to cover (hint: Maine and Connecticut residents, these are reasons why you should attend!):
But don't take my word for it- Chris, Bob, and Jim provide a heck of a day and it is well worth checking this out yourself! Especially considering our Q2 release is right around the corner, now is the perfect time to get acquainted with the latest stuff out there before diving into the new things we will be offering.
