Registration is now open for the inaugural edition of the SoCal .NET Technical Summit to be held Saturday, May 7th.

For the past few months, I've been working with the various .NET user groups in SoCal to organize this one day developer conference and we've planned an event that you won't want to miss out on!

Check out the roster of all-star speakers that we've put together to share their deep knowledge of ASP.NET Web applications, business objects and architecture, smart client (Windows Forms) applications, the .NET Framework and related technologies:

      Rockford Lhotka - author, Microsoft Regional Director, MVP
      Dan Appleman - author, MVP
      Michele Leroux Bustamante - Microsoft Regional Director
      Tim Huckaby - Microsoft Regional Director
      Ted Pattison (tentative) - author, MVP
      Mickey Williams - author, MVP
      Chris Rolon - consultant
      Mark Miller - creator of CodeRush
      Scott Mitchell - author, MVP
      Daniel Egan - author
      Scott Cate - MVP, ASP.NET Insider
      Scott Hutchison - MCSD

I just spoke at the Developer Connections conferences in Orlando with six of these exact same speakers but instead of paying well over a thousand dollars for conference registration plus airfare, hotel and other travel expenses, you'll be able to learn from this esteemed line-up of industry experts that will be assembling together almost in your own backyard for an incredibly low registration price as little as $79 (early bird price before April 15th)!

The conference will be held at the Long Beach Airport Marriott and we're even working on some kind of arrangement for shared bus transportation from San Diego to the conference.

See you there!
