Visual Studio 2008 InstallFest


VS08_h_rgb 

To celebrate the upcoming RTM of Visual Studio 2008, we’re going to host a few "InstallFest" parties in conjunction with some of our local user groups.  These parties will feature food, drink, Xbox and the opportunity for you to install Visual Studio 2008 right after it RTMs.  AND, as a special incentive to "get your VS on", for those of you that bring your computers to the party and install VS08 right there with us, we’ll send you a FREE copy of Visual Studio 2008 Professional in the mail (after the packaging is done, and we actually have something to send you).

Here’s a list of dates/times/locations for the upcoming events:

Dec 3rd – Tulsa, OK @ OSU Tulsa with the TDNUG

Dec 5th – Dallas, TX @ Intuit Headquarters with the NDDNUG

Dec 13th – Houston, TX @ Microsoft Office with HDNUG and NHDNUG

The parties will be a combination User Group end-of-the-year party and a happenin’ InstallFest – add Xbox 360s to the mix, and these parties are destined to become the geek event of the year 🙂

Check back here often for more information on these events.  I’ll be posting registration links soon as well as additional information about the events.

SO – clear your calendars and get ready for Visual Studio 2008!

    Neat idea, is this sort of thing only going to be available to redmond area user groups or can groups out in the boonies have them as well?

  2. Awesome, see you in Tulsa on the 3rd!
