Speaking at the Detroit Launch Event, Panel Discussion, Geek Dinner Afterwards

Posted by Keith Elder | Posted in Presentations, Speaking | Posted on 15-03-2008

Tuesday March 18th is the Detroit, MI MSDN Launch Event for SQL Server 2008, Visual Studio 2008 and Windows Server 2008.  I’ll be speaking at the event on the topic of “Defy Occasionally Connected Challenges with Smart Client Applications“. 

About The Event

The Detroit event will celebrate the launch of Windows Server 2008, Visual Studio 2008 and SQL Server 2008. The event will bring together IT Pros and Developers to get an in-depth, up-close look at the new products and will give attendees an opportunity to meet with our Partners as well as members of the development teams who created the cutting-edge technologies. And all attendees will get a promotional pack containing all three new products. Join us for this day long celebration!

Panel Discussion

During lunch I will be on a discussion panel for architects discussing how businesses can start leveraging these new tools.  I don’t have any further information on the panel other than that at the moment.  I also don’t know if the panel discussion is open to the public or invitation only.  If I find anymore details on it, I’ll update this post.

Geek Dinner After Event

After the event we are having a Geek Dinner at PizzaPapalis which is only a few blocks away from the Renaissance Center in downtown Detroit.  The slots for the dinner are getting full so if you know you are going to attend the dinner then be sure to RSVP.  Note the new RULES section.  If you are planning on coming, it is important you bring cash to the dinner so we can easily settle our tab.  Also, if you are not coming, either email me or Twitter a direct message to me.  I have to let the establishment know a fairly close number so we can get pizzas ordered ahead of time to shorten the wait.

I’m looking forward to seeing a lot of friends and fellow team members next week.
