So the WI .NET Users Group’s Holiday Party is coming up soon. Today I was able to increase the registration capacity because Dave Bost from Microsoft was able to come through for us and got us a few dozen more Visual Studio 2008 licenses than previously expected.
By the way, if you’re attending the party to install Visual Studio, Dave has a great post that includes some steps you should take to prepare for the installation. He also talks about a number of contests surrounding the party. There is even a contest you can enter even if you can’t make it to the party.
One of the contests is a Demo Contest. We are looking for a number of people who are willing and able to do a short demo (around 5-15 minutes, depending on participation). If you’ve been using VS08 or .NET 3.5 and would like to talk about one of your favorite features, please contact me and let me know. As long as the schedule permits, we’ll allow people to "sign up" to give a quick demo right there at the party, but we’d like to get as many interested people as possible to sign up in advance.
Even though we have again reached our limit for Visual Studio licenses, there is another link to register on our site. We’d still like to have everyone at the party for the food and fun, so sign up using this alternate link. Also, by signing up you’ll be added to the waiting list in case anyone the already registered is unable to make it for some reason.
I hope to see everyone there.
