Local Silverlight Group?

I’ve been talking with a number of people about starting a Silverlight focused group
here in the Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill area. If you’re interested, se if you can come
out to the presentation I’m giving for the Triangle
.Net User Group
Web Applications SIG on Wednesday and we can maybe chat afterwards
as well about setting another meeting up later in April. I’m thinking maybe April
22nd, 24th, or 29th?

On the topic of SIlverlight meetings…. I think there are a few of us that may soon
need a local meeting more like this….

Code Trip’n

One of the fun parts of Mix08 was seeing the Code
bus set sail on it’s voyage around the western US. It’s a bunch of Microsoft
DE’s and prominent members of the developer community that will be holding a series
of events as they travel from city to city. I look forward to seeing the bus again
at it’s final destination at the MVP summit in Seattle in April. 

The Code Trip site has a listing of the events
taking place, real time bus GPS tracking, and a travel

Happy trails Code Trip Team!!!

TriNUG March 2008 – Chris Eargle – Continuous Integration – MSBuild on CruiseControl

Wednesday, March 12, Chris Eargle will be
presenting on Continuous
Integration using MSBuild and CruiseControl
at the March Meeting of TriNUG.
Chris has an excellent grasp on this topic, and this presentation, while easily approachable
for those new to CI, has plenty of technical depth for those more familiar with the
topic. Chris is a great speaker, and this event will leave you well-versed and capable
in setting up your own CI solution.
