March Community Calendar
Well, after a nice hiatus, the new Community season is underway! I’ve really been missing it, but starting this week we’ll be back in the swing of things. March is chock full of Community Goodness:
Microsoft Developer Evangelists Andrew Duthie, aka the Devhammer, and Dave Isbitski are hosting a series of MSDN Roadshows on Windows Azure. I will be attending this Wednesday, March 3rd, at the Richmond installment. Roadshows are a great way to learn about new technologies and network fellow developers and Microsoft professionals. Space is limited, so be sure to Register!
Roanoke Code Camp
March 13th will be the 4th Annual Roanoke Valley Code Camp, hosted by RVNUG and great group of contributors. I will be presenting a couple of sessions, Silverlight 4: Ready for Business and How I Develop WPF Applications. I’m really looking forward to it: I hate to play favorites, but if I could only go to one Code Camp, this would probably be the one. Fortunately, I don’t have to make such a horrible decision! Space is limited, so make sure you register today to reserve your seat!
March 18th I will be presenting Silverlight 4: Ready for Business at the Charlottesville .NET User Group. CHODOTNET is a growing, vibrant User Group, and if you are anywhere near there you should definitely check it out! Be sure to visit the website as the meeting location has recently changed.
Southern Maryland Give Camp
March 19-21 will be the Southern Maryland Give Camp, the first East Coast Give Camp ever! Give Camp is a charity coding event that promises to be challenging, rewarding, and lots of fun all at once! A bunch of developers, DBAs, and designers will all converge on St. Mary’s College of Maryland for a weekend of non-stop programming. The beneficiaries of this effort are a group of non-profit agencies who otherwise could not afford to hire professionals to develop these websites and applications.
And as if that doesn’t sound awesome enough in its own right, if we get 100+ developers to volunteer their time, Andrew Duthie will shave his head into a Mohawk! Come on gang, I’d just love to see that!
Don’t miss out!
With so many great opportunities, I sure hope to see you out in the Community! As always, be sure you say ‘Hi’!
