EastBay.NET Pleasanton UG Launch Event Tonight!

Come on over to the warm side of the Bay as we kick off hard-core Visual Studio 2008 development with our local Launch event in Pleasanton. We’ve got pizza!!! :-) Check out our site for more information like registration info and directions.

I’ll start at 5:45pm as usual for our FUNdamentals session where we continue to build upon our PizzaMania application we’ve been building since January. Tonight we’ll build a couple WCF services.

Then the fun begins at 6:45 with an informal discussion with Dan Ledrick from MSDN to get feedback from developers on how the MSDN sites can be improved. Let-er-rip!

Next I’m up with a presentation I did at the SF Launch in March that shows some of the new client/service/data features of Visual Studio 2008 including a WPF client, exposing a Workflow as a WCF service, and also how to set up an occasionally connected client with the new ADO.NET sync services and local database cache. I’ll throw in some LINQ as well ;-). Robin will clean it up with new ClickOnce deployment features.

Hope you can join us if you’re in the Bay Area!
