I hope to see a bunch of my SoCal developer friends at CodeCamp this Saturday and Sunday (Jan 26/27) - www.SoCalCodeCamp.com
There are a bunch of great technical presentations, great conversations with developers, swag...and, or course the whole this is FREE. AND there is another event for SharePoint developers running at same place! - more here http://www.infusion.com/sleepless/Home.aspx
I'll be presenting a session of using Data Mining (for developers) from SQL Server 2005 at 4pm on Saturday (in room MH 121), and I'll be hanging out both days, catching some sessions myself.
The website shows presenters, sessions, directions - even a map of local restaurants (shown below). Oh, and if you are wondering, Starbucks is my snack shop of choice - bring on those Chai Tea Lattes (particularly in this winter-like weather that we've been having!)
