May 2008 Area User Group Meetings

May 2008 Area User Group Meetings

  • Comments 1

It's May!  Despite my allergies, this month features one of my favorite holidays of the year: Memorial Day weekend and "opening day" for the summer season at the Jersey Shore!  While visions of sand and surf are on the horizon, there's plenty to be excited about in the community this month. 

Some highlights in the community this month are the Philly.NET Code Camp (May 17th), Tech Bash 2008 (May 10th) in Nanticoke, Pa, Iain McDonald from the Windows Server team at NY Enterprise Windows Group (May 1st), a new South Jersey satellite group of Philly.NET, and not one, but TWO new Share Point user groups forming up in Fairfield county in Connecticut!

Here's the line up at our area's user groups for May:
