MPj04365070000[1]Though we’re still enjoying the warm weather, and groups often take it easy in July and August, there are plenty of events starting to appear on the radar, so I’m rounding them up here. 

September promises to be very busy - with Vermont’s very first Code Camp, our Fall Northeast MSDN Roadshow series, and user groups returning to regular meetings.  Then October will feature the 12th of immensely popular New England Code Camps.

Also, scroll down to the bottom for some online events, that don’t care where you live (or that you’re attending in your jammies.)

Know of any other events?  Please comment or let me know.
