Next month on June 11th 2008 I'm presenting at this public event on the Microsoft campus. Come along if you want to get an overview of SharePoint development.
I will be giving two talks there. One is a full on demo session going over different things you can build with the Visual Studio 2008 extensions for Windows SharePoint Services. The second one will be on Page Branding of SharePoint Sites using Visual Studio.
Mithun Dhar is arranging the event and has a more detailed post about it here that includes the registration URL.
