Dani Does Phone–Western New York User Group Tour

Dani DiazMy colleague Dani Diaz, whom many of you know from the Windows Phone launch events in Boston, is briefly venturing out of his home mid-Atlantic territory to share his expertise and insight on developing for the Windows Phone platform.   Thanks to the coordination of a few of the Western New York User Groups, he’s doing his own “I-90” tour next week.  If you’re in the Rochester, Buffalo, or Syracuse areas it’s a great opportunity to hear from one of the experts!
