Register for MSDN Roadshow Coming to Hattiesburg Sept 19th

Posted by Keith Elder | Posted in .Net | Posted on 04-09-2008

image If you are in the surrounding Hattiesburg, MS area (Jackson, Mobile, Gulfport, Biloxi, New Orleans, Slidell, Vicksburg, Meridian, Laurel, etc) there is a free MSDN event coming to Hattiesburg on September 19th called the MSDN Southern Fried Roadshow.

The event is a four hour event with Developer Evangelist Glen Gordon and Architect Evangelist Chad Brooks.  Hattiesburg is the last stop of a five city tour they are doing throughout the South.

What is an MSDN Roadshow?

For those that have never gone to an event like this, this is where Microsoft sends their Evangelist out into the heart of America to make sure the development community is familiar with the latest and greatest software.  Think of it as free training!  There is no sales pitch, their job is to simply tell you about the latest releases and answer questions.  Larger events are done in bigger cities typically earlier in the year like Chicago, Detroit, etc.  Now is your chance to get the same material locally in your own area.  Definitely worth the price of admission!


  • See what’s new in Windows Server 2008:  Hypervisor Technology, IIS7, and others. 
  • SQL 2008 is also packed with goodies for Developers;  see the geospatial capabilities as well as the LINQ enhancements.
