I wanted to pass along late word that tonight's (10/10) Boston .NET User Group meeting will be packed with speakers.
First they have the group's own Tony Pino (currently attending Harvard) to speak on interesting research he's doing on "The Social Web and Digital Natives".
After Tony, the group will be visited by four members of Microsoft' Common Language Runtime team:
Mike Downen is a Lead Program Manager on the Common Language Runtime team, focusing on the base class libraries, security, reflection, and add-ins. Before becoming management overhead, he was the Program Manager for security on the CLR. He has been on the CLR team for 4 years, and has been at Microsoft for over 9 years, starting as a developer in Office.
Jesse Kaplan is the PM on the CLR team for Add-Ins and Extensibility, runtime versioning, and hosting.
Melitta Andersen is a Program Manager on the Base Class Libraries team of the Common Language Runtime. She currently works on the base types, globalization, localization, and numerics. She’s been at Microsoft for two months, plus an internship with this same group last summer.
Andrew Dai is a new Program Manager for Security on the Common Language Runtime group. He is currently involved with the CLR security model and APIs as well as internal security assurance. Andrew has been with Microsoft for a little over two months and is a college hire.
They're all visiting from Redmond for the ReMIX '07 Boston event, so this is a good chance to see what's new with the CLR.
The meeting is at 6:00 at the Microsoft offices at 201 Jones Road, Waltham, MA.
