.NET From a Markup Perspective

.NET Experience Expo at the Alpharetta Office – Friday, May 20th

This Friday (May 20th) come to the Microsoft Alpharetta office for the .NET Experience Expo! This is a free event where you can come hear all about some of the hottest topics for developers and architects.  This is a huge opportunity to learn more about what Microsoft is doing for developers (and it’s a great chance to win an Xbox!)  All attendees will receive a free copy of beta 2 (yep, Team Suite… the full deal), a copy of “Introducing ASP.NET 2.0”, and a swank .NET shirt.  We will have a reception at the end of the day (who can beat free beer?)  There will be partners attending as well in the partner pavillion (AmberPoint, Avanade, AVIcode, RDA, Internosis). 

But wait… there’s more!  We will have a Hands On Lab room where you can play with the bits (BizTalk, SharePoint, VS 2005, and more), Ask the Experts sessions, an Ask the MVPs session with some of the Atlanta MVPs, and lots of time to interact with the Developer Evangelist team!

Come for the Experience… stay for the beer.
