MSDN Connection is about bringing developers together, from all walks of life - both professional as well as student developers, to a common place where they have the opportunity to share ideas among each other, meet and participate with their peers in user groups while all the time learning and sharing from each others developer experiences.
This is a fantastic way for members of the Developer community to build closer relationships with Microsoft and other industry affiliates, as well as receive recognition for individual accomplishments. And, best of all - there's no cost for you.
So what are you waiting for? Get involved!
