Several people have asked (in some form or another) what's up with MSDN Events in the Southeast. Here's the deal:

No MSDN Event in Atlanta before the end of 2005. That's because of a little thing we like to call a Launch Event. It's going to be November 29th at the Cobb Galleria center. There will be a keynote in the morning followed by 2 tracks for the rest of the day, one covering developer topics and one on IT Pro topics. There will also be ask-the-experts and pavilions so you can corner folks and ask them the really tough questions in addition to getting your information in a seminar format.

The MSDN Events in Raleigh (11/8) and Charlotte (11/10) along with TechNet Events (also in Raleigh and Charlotte) will be the same format you're used to, 8-noon for TechNet and 1-5 for MSDN. The content, however, will be an abbreviated version of the launch event content, with no keynote and no pavilions (though we are working on getting Microsoft and partner experts to take some of your questions). Also we're trying to coordinate .NET Pub Clubs after the events so you'll get more opportunities to meet experts and ask your tough questions.

As always, cool giveaways and a good time will be the order of the day. Register today at the links above! See you there...
