Next week my User Group Tour kicks off. This is the first one since last year, and I have more user groups to go to now too.
I'm presenting on Visual Studio 2008 which is due to RTM late this year and launch next March.
Title: A Lap around Visual Studio 2008
Abstract: Explore all the new Visual Studio 2008 features, from language enhancements; improved designers; Web, Office and smart-client development tools; to Visual Studio Team System, a suite of software lifecycle management tools poised to transform how you deliver software for Windows Vista, the 2007 Microsoft Office system, and the Web.
Here is my current schedule:
11th : Ellerslie .Net User Group (New group in Ellerslie!)

I'm hoping to talk to most of the large Microsoft partners over this period as well as any smaller groups of developers who can get a small group together and are interested in hearing me.
If you have a group of developers who are interested in this presentation, contact me and we can try and tee up a time for me to come and visit you - if you live outside of New Zealand, please be prepared to pay shipping costs 🙂
