Last night, when I showed up at the Northern Jersey UG, it turned out that the featured speaker wasn’t able to make it. It was virtually a full house at Set Focus (home of the N3UG). By the time I got there after fighting the Jersey traffic, I found Miguel Castro leading the group in an ad-hoc ‘Birds of a feather’ Q&A discussion. I pitched in to help with some answers.
The topics covered were all over the map, ranging from
o How to be a Code Camp/User Group speaker
o .NET 1.1 to 2.0 migration
o Windows Live features and futures
o Using Virtual PC and Virtual Server
o VSTO for Office 2007
o Lotus Notes/.NET interop
o Sharing session state between ASP & ASP.NET applications (and why you DON’T want to do this!)
o User Account Protection in Vista
I am going to post a bunch of links that follow up on some of the topics discussed as separate posts. I was going to do it as one large post, but then thought it might be easier to have separate posts so that I can continue to reference them in the future since a lot of these are FAQs that I keep getting.
Thanks to everyone who showed up! It was a really great discussion, and I look forward to listening to your feedback on how we can help improve our .NET developer community.
[Update] As I post the items that sprung from the BOF discussion, I'll update this post with links to each one.
