A delayed ETW post this week, but we’ve got some great stuff this week, including tonight’s 10th Anniversary meeting for the Capitol Area .NET User Group! I’ll be speaking on the guest panel, along with Brian Noyes, Vishwas Lele, Hal Hayes, Sahil Malik, Jonathan Cogley, and hosted by Scott Lock. We’ve got a gently used XBOX 360 and Plasma TV to give away, along with a nice carrying case for the XBOX, and a copy of Guitar Hero 3.

Another place I’ll be this week is the Capitol Area .NET Silverlight SIG, where I’ll be presenting tomorrow (Wednesday, the 29th) on Lessons Learned moving from ASP.NET to Silverlight.
