I'm going to be in Roanoke on Thursday (Feb 5th) talking to the Roanoke Valley .NET Users Group about .NET 2.0. It should be a great session. I'm going to talk about some of the new features of ASP.NET 2.0, and also some of the language innovations like generics. We'll also take a look the road ahead to technologies like Yukon and Longhorn.
If you're in that part of Virginia, come join us! We'll be in the training room at the Advance Auto Parts store at Crossroads Mall at 6:00 PM. They have a home page, and there's also an RVNUG mailing list.
