Following our brief event hiatus in July, we're coming back with even more great content - the focus this time around is ASP.NET 2.0.  We're presenting 3 sessions over the half-day event to explore UI, Data Access, and Performance techniques with the new ASP.NET 2.0.  See below for event cities where I will be presenting - I can't wait to see you soon!
