2010 NJ/NY/CT Metro Area Community Retrospective

New-Years-Eve2010As we closed out 2010, my teammate Rachel Appel wrote up a retrospective post on her blog, re-capping what went on here in the tri-state Microsoft community.  Rachel then invites folks to share their feedback and ideas for how we can keep the local tech community buzzing in 2011.  I’ve posted a snippet here, but please read her entire post over at www.rachelappel.com.

2010 has been a great year for the NY Metro community and I'm hoping to carry that vibe right on into 2011. There's been lots of exciting events, from the NYC Code Camp early in 2010 to our SQL Saturday in November (being the last big community led event of the year).  Let's not forget about all the great user groups in NY Metro area as well that diligently meet every month. 

If you live in the area and haven't been to a user group or tech event, you're REALLY missing out on valuable resources, access to your Microsoft DPE team, information and networking/jobs.  This is the perfect time for that New Year's resolution; get out and attend user groups, code camps and other computing events….READ MORE!

Rachel goes on to encourage folks to connect with the local Microsoft Evangelism team (Rachel, Me, and Bob Hunt).  I’ll echo her closing statement here:

Thanks to all our local & honorary NY Metro community members who've contributed to events and the technical communities in 2010.  Keep your work going strong into 2011!
