N3UG Birds Of a Feather Q&A


Last night, when I showed up at the Northern Jersey UG, it turned out that the featured speaker wasn’t able to make it.  It was virtually a full house at Set Focus (home of the N3UG).  By the time I got there after fighting the Jersey traffic, I found Miguel Castro leading the group in an ad-hoc ‘Birds of a feather’ Q&A discussion.  I pitched in to help with some answers. 


 


The topics covered were all over the map, ranging from


o       How to be a Code Camp/User Group speaker


o       .NET 1.1 to 2.0 migration


o       Windows Live features and futures


o       Using Virtual PC and Virtual Server


o       VSTO for Office 2007


o       Lotus Notes/.NET interop


o       Sharing session state between ASP & ASP.NET applications (and why you DON’T want to do this!)


o       User Account Protection in Vista


 


I am going to post a bunch of links that follow up on some of the topics discussed as separate posts.  I was going to do it as one large post, but then thought it might be easier to have separate posts so that I can continue to reference them in the future since a lot of these are FAQs that I keep getting.


 


Thanks to everyone who showed up!  It was a really great discussion, and I look forward to listening to your feedback on how we can help improve our .NET developer community.


 


[Update] As I post the items that sprung from the BOF discussion, I’ll update this post with links to each one.
