April 2008 Area User Group Meetings

April 2008 Area User Group Meetings

  • Comments 0

Spring is finally here!  Fingers crossed, looks like Jersey escaped without any major snow storms this year.  (At least this part of Jersey!)  The Yanks and Mets are playing in their current stadiums for the last season.  The Bradford pear trees are starting to flower.  Allergy season is almost upon us.  And soon, those of us who live outside of the Manhattan will be firing up our lawn mowers again.

There's a lot going on in the local area .NET community this month too.  This week, Wintellect and Infragistics are hosting the Devscovery conference in NYC.  On Saturday April 5th, the NJ SQL Server group is hosting a free day of SQL Server 2008 training featuring Hilary Cotter.  Later in the month, Microsoft will be hosting its annual Health & Life Sciences Developer Conference in Atlantic City, NJ.  Out in Pittsburgh, they're having a Code Camp on April 12th.  And of course, as usual, we have a great line up of topics and speakers at the area user groups! 

Let me know what you think of the new table formatting I've tried on this month's posting.
