The Roadshow Begins!

Jim and I are ready to begin the Northeast MSDN Roadshow “Driving Toward a New Horizon” Tour!   We’ll be focusing on Windows Azure, data options including WCF RIA Services, and looking at what’s new in Visual Studio 2010 and .NET Framework 4.

Monday, March 8th – Burlington, VT

Vermont.NET HeaderThough not a Roadshow (we have only the evening), we’re kicking off our road trip in Burlington, VT tonight, with “An Evening in the Cloud” discussing Windows Azure (and eating pizza) with the Vermont .NET User Group from 5:30 to 8:30.  Can you make it?  Then register here.

Wednesday, March 10th – Rochester, NY

Roadshow-March 2010The Roadshow itself begins with our visit to Rochester, NY on Wednesday from 1-5 PM.  You can register for Rochester here.

In the morning, we’ll pile in the car again and head to Albany, NY…

Friday, March 12th – Albany, NY

On Friday, we’ll end this leg of the trip with a stop in the Albany, NY area (Troy, NY) from 1-5 PM.  Register for Troy, NY here.

For IT pros, there will be a morning TechNet event before the Roadshow, so if you’d like to make a day of it, then register for TechNet as well.

Looking Ahead… March 24th – Waltham, MA

A couple of weeks later, the second leg of the Roadshow will bring us to our largest show, held in Waltham, MA on March 24th (1-5 PM).  There will be a TechNet event in the morning from 8-12.

March 26th – Farmington, CT

Finally, we’ll wrap up this Roadshow tour with a visit to Farmington, CT on March 26th (1-5 PM).  As in Troy and Waltham, there will also be a TechNet event in the morning here.

I’m looking forward to a great tour and hope to see you on the road!
