My thanks to Steve Presley, who noticed that I posted the wrong date for the upcoming MSDN Mid-Atlantic Roadshow in Chester, VA, here’s the correct info:
Richmond, VA (Chester) – March 10th, 2009
Some of our regulars from Richmond may wonder why we chose Chester, VA as the location. One reason was venue cost. As you might imagine, given the economic times, we’re all trying to be as frugal with our budgets as we can. Keeping venue costs low helps us to be able to bring more roadshows to more places. Additionally, after discussing with a trusted member of the local developer community, we decided that the Chester location would allow us to reach developers in both Richmond and Petersburg. We’ll see how things go with this event, and evaluate for future events whether we’ll stick with this venue, or try something more centrally located.
Speaking of venues, if you’d like us to bring the MSDN Mid-Atlantic Roadshow to your area, and you know of a venue we can get for a half- or full-day event for free (or cheap), please let me know!
