I've blogged about Microsoft and Second Life before, but now we'll have one of our own northeast volunteers running an event in association with the Second Life .NET Users Group on Visual Studio Island.
Full details are at http://www.sldnug.net/CSharpDay.aspx, and the event runs from 9:00 - 4:00 (SLT = Second Life Time = Pacific Standard Time = PST) on the lower level of Visual Studio Island. Here's the agenda:
9:00am - 9:30am - Ice breakers
9:30am - 10:00am - C# Language Discovery
10:00am - 11:00am - C# Language Cocktail Party
11:00am - 11:30am - Knowledge organization and self-reflection
11:30am - 12:00pm - Starting a new project in Visual Studio/C# Express
12:00pm - 1:00pm - Lunch
1:00pm - 1:45pm - C# Program Discovery
1:45pm - 2:45pm - C# Program Cocktail Party
2:45pm - 3:15pm - Knowledge organization and self-reflection
3:15pm - 4:00pm - InnerWorkings
The great part is you don't have to travel to participate in this C# Day. Just install the software (check the event site for details) and log in. Nobody has to know you're in your PJs.
You can get to Visual Studio Island by searching for "Visual Studio Island" in-world.
If the virtual world isn't to your liking, Michael will be running the next "real world" C# Day in January of February. Keep your eye on this blog or the C# Day site for details.
See you in Second Life!
