Events in Belfast, Dublin, Cork, and Tralee


[UPDATE: The WinFX event in Tralee is on Thursday (as always), not Friday as indicated here!  My apologies for any inconvenience may have caused.]


There have been some great events this week: yesterday we had members of the Windows Forms and C# teams in Dublin.  Today (Tuesday), Luca and Mike are up to give a similar presentation in Belfast, where yesterday new MVP Kieran Lynam presented on ASP.NET 2.


I’m down to Cork tonight and Tralee on Thursday to discuss WinFX and the Longhorn development platform.  The goal of these presentations is to give an overview of what’s coming in WinFX from both the Avalon and Indigo sides of the house, and give developers and decision makers some insights into how to leverage the 2005 set of technologies today to prepare for WinFX tomorrow.  Oh, and from the looks of things, there’ll be some cool live demos, too. 🙂  All are welcome to attend!


Looking forward to meeting many of you and hearing your thoughts on what interests you in what’s coming down the pipe. 


And if this isn’t proof that we’re really making an effort to host these events all around the island, I don’t know what is 😉

    Hi Robert,

    I listened to your talk on Avalon tonight with interest – thanks for the presentation and as (primarily) a Mac user, may I welcome you to the world of the slick interface. 🙂

    OS X 10.4 has most of the interface elements you referred to (or an equivalent) already built in.

    By the way, your comments section doesn’t work on Mac (FF 1.04 or Safari 2.0) and many times trying to load a page causes errors. I would suggest your blog engine needs a bit more work! I had to log into a Win2k server I manage remotely to leave this comment.

    Cheers,

    Tom

    To anyone planning on attending in Tralee: The event is being held on Thursday night, and not Friday as Rob stated above. I have this from the local organisers KerrySoft, who have spoken to Rob for confirmation.

    Absolutely right, and my apologies. It’s on Thursday night. For some reason I can’t update my blog right now – I can’t even post new entries. Really sorry about the inconvenience and hope to see many of you Thursday.

    One other thing I forgot to mention Rob – you mis-spelt Dublin in the title of this post!

    Cheers,

    Tom

    All the AutoComplete and compile-time checking in Visual Studio has made me very lazy (and misspelling-prone) indeed 😉
