Fun Live Geek Events South FLA Dec ‘09 – Feb ‘10

Hey Now Everybody,

Looking forward to some live Geek / Technical / Training events in the near future. There are two great .NET User groups in South Florida the first Florida.NET & the second is Gold Coast User Group.
I really enjoy these two groups & the people I've meet being involved with them. If you search for a .NET user group in your location most likely there is one close by you too can check out. These events are usually free or a small charge such as a $5 donation.

December ‘09 SharePoint & Gold Coast Holiday Party
January ‘10 FLA Speaker Idol
February ‘10 South FLA .NET Code Camp

On Thursday December 3rd there is going to be Microsoft SharePoint Ft Lauderdale Microsoft SharePoint 2010 1 Day Workshop for Developers located in the local Microsoft office building. Paul Stubbs @paulstubbs will be one of the presenters who I'm looking forward to seeing present for the first time.

On Friday I'm scheduled to take my Microsoft Certification .NET Foundations 70-536 exam which I've been preparing for & I'm really looking forward to this. It will be the first Microsoft Certification exam I've ever taken so it'll be a great experience. Then to celebrate the exam I'm attending our annual Gold Coast User Group Holiday party where there are going to be some stellar session including:

We all learn from each other, I’d like to thank in advance all the people who will make these event happen & participate in one way or another. These events I’m sure will be entertaining & educational.

Bye for now!
