There is a lot to catch up on so let's just jump in.

If you have previously registered for the MSDN Events seminars free seminar in Los Angeles scheduled for November 4th, there has been a change of location. Instead of South Gate, we will now be up in Pasadena at the United Artist Marketplace 6 at 64 W. Colorado Boulevard, box office phone - (626) 795-3923. This location change also applies to the TechNet, Connections and TS2 seminars the same day.

If you haven't previously registered, perhaps you will consider joining us now? I'm going to be taking a look at Membership and Personalization in ASP.NET 2.0, benchmarking and optimization with ASP.NET 1.1, object-oriented principles in Visual Basic .NET and even a brief look at a really cool Web service - the MapPoint Web Service which can supply maps, routes, driving directions and more for inclusion in your custom developed solution. Best of all, attendees will receive the next edition of the companion MSDN Events DVD-ROM packed with gigabytes of invaluable developer resources including Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Beta 1 Refresh! Register now.

I'll also be presenting these seminars in Santa Barbara, Westminster and San Diego. Register here.
