We’re happy to share that Microsoft Press will be participating in one of the pre-summit activities for the 2013 MVP Global Summit: the MVP Showcase @ Summit hosted by The MVP Award Program. C’mon by to learn about authoring opportunities with Microsoft Press.
Also, Jeffrey Richter, author of CLR via C# and other masterful developer books, will be at our booth from 5:00-6:00 to sign books! Bring your Richter books, or just stop by to chat with Jeff. (Psst: we’ll also be giving away some signed books by Mark Russinovich and Aaron Margosis.)
One more thing: If you’re an MVP who has published a book with Microsoft Press and you’re interested in being interviewed and filmed about your book, please write Kim Spilker (kispilke). We’d love to arrange something with those of you visiting from elsewhere.
Below is more information about the the MVP Showcase @ Summit—we look forward to seeing you!
