Interested in re-energizing the user group in Greensboro/High Point?


In just a few weeks I'll be bringing the latest MSDN Events to the Triad area (as well as Greenville, SC). You can register via those links as well as see details about the topics we're covering - VSTS Database Edition, Windows Workflow Foundation, and Expression Web.

Anyway, the real point of this post is to ask for your help, readers. If you are interested in re-energizing the Greensboro user group, please make plans to stay after the MSDN event on Tuesday. We'll go grab dinner at a nearby establishment and plan out how to go about this revitalization. It's important to me to see user groups succeed because they are such a critical local resource for developers!

Ashton, if you are reading this, please try to join us. If you have been finding it too much of a strain running the group, maybe this will attract some new blood to help you out. I'm not trying to usurp any organization or authority - just trying to make sure the group succeeds.

Please let your peers know about these events, as well as the special meeting after the MSDN event.

    I will try to make this event, but not sure as I don’t do much development although that is what I like. I am definitely interested in having the group suceed. I know I am a Beginner to Intermediate Developer, and I would definitely would like to be able to grow my knowledge without having to break the bank.

    I’m definitely interested in getting the group going again, I won’t be able to make the event, but I’d like to attend the meeting.

    I have recently relocated from the High Point/Greensboro area where I attended a few .NET user group meetings in the Greensboro/HP area. I was involved in heavy enterprise development with the .NET framework and VS2003 but noticed that there was very little else going on development wise in that geographic area. The meetings seemed to offer "wiz bang" and no real substance. Many of the attendees seemed to be enthusiasts, certification addicts or IT recruiters promising big futures in an area where there was no/very little programming work. Needless to say, I had to relocate to find further enterprise level IT programming work in my field. I apologize if this seems negative, just wanted to offer a realistic two-cents.

    I’ve been active member of both, the Sql User group, and the PTNUG. I could not make the meeting this evening, but am willing to do whatever I can to help. Please feel free to contact me.
