I just saw Amanda Silver is going to be on Second Life!

Join Amanda Silver, Lead Program Manager in the Dev Div, tomorrow at the Visual Studio Island Theater in Second Life to speak about Visual Basic on Silverlight.

Amanda's work involves the language design of Visual Basic as well as managing a talented team of Program Managers that design and ship everything in Visual Studio that is Visual Basic specific. We are entering a new dimension in programming and now, Visual Basic, the programming language that brought Windows programming to the masses is now available cross-platform (yep, VB on a MAC)!

About Second Life:

Second Life is a 3D online world with a rapidly growing population of over 3 million registered residents from 100 countries around the globe, in which the residents themselves create and build the world which includes homes, vehicles, nightclubs, stores, landscapes, clothing, and games.  As of May 10th Visual Studio established an area in Second Life where developers can hang out, attend events, and test their wits to win prizes.  We’ve already given away 60 plots of land adjacent to the Island on “Coders Cove” where many developers have built houses and other interesting things.
