Come down to the Microsoft San Francisco office on One Market for the SF BAADD .NET meeting starting tonight at 6:30pm. I'll be speaking on The Future of Visual Basic, the same talk I did at DevTeach, but with many more demos because this time I'll have enough time! :-) Please RSVP to dbr@outformations.com. Here's the details:

 The next meeting of the BAADD San Francisco .NET Developer's User Group will be Wednesday, May 30, 2007 from 6:30-9:00 p.m. at the Microsoft Office, One Market Street, 2nd Floor, San Francisco, CA.

Food will arrive at 6:30, and the meeting will get underway formally at 7:00.  If you arrive after 7:00, you will need to have the security guard call me to bring you up.

This month Beth Massi will present on The Future of VB.

More than any other .NET language, Visual Basic is evolving in dramatic ways to provide its legions of developers with untold levels of productivity for developing enterprise data-aware applications. The next version of VB evolves from the influences of dynamic languages such as Ruby and from the field of existing VB6 developers struggling to migrate their applications to .NET. During this session we will walk through the new language improvements coming with Visual Basic 9 and beyond.

Please RSVP to Don Robins at dbr@outformations.com by noon on Wednesday, April 30th, so we can make sure we have enough food and drinks on hand, and so building security knows you are coming.  I hope you will be able to attend.

As always, we will have a drawing for door prizes including a full standard licence for VS2005, SQL Server 2005 and Biztalk Server! Remember you must be present to win. Meetings are free for current BAADD members, and there is a guest fee is $10 at the door for nonmembers. Annual dues are $75, and you can join at the door.

Please also take a moment to forward this email to friends and colleagues who may be interested in this meeting.  These meetings have proven to be extremely valuable, and the more people we can bring together, the better.
