Not sure if everyone is subscribed to the MSDN Flash or not, but if you’re not – it is a GREAT resource for finding out what’s happening in your area.  I like the fact that it’s customized to show events and happenings in your geography (my copy shows me what’s happening in TX, OK, LA and AR).  If you’re not already subscribed, here’s a link to get you started:

For those not subscribed, and anyone else that just hasn’t gotten around to reading your copy of the Flash, I wanted to tell you about some important upcoming events in TX – MSDN Unleashed and ArcReady have been combined into a single, all-day event with ArcReady in the morning and MSDN Unleashed in the afternoon.  We’re working on increasing the registration cap, so check back if you try to register and it shows as full.  Here’s a listing of the events for this quarter:

MSDN Events Unleashed

Session 1: Demystifying WPF
Session 2: Developing Applications with Visual Studio 2008 and .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1

ArcReady

Session: Architecting Modern Distributed Applications

Abstract: With a bewildering array of choices, the biggest challenge we face today is how to architect robust applications with the right technologies to meet our user's needs and integrate nicely into our existing IT ecosystems. Join our Central Region Architect Evangelists for a great discussion on architecting distributed applications using all the latest technologies and best practices.

I will be presenting the MSDN Unleashed content in Austin and Dallas, and J Sawyer will be covering Houston.  Phil Wheat, of course, will be handling all the ArcReady content. 

Hope to see you there!
