Office hours are back!
If you haven’t done so already, register to attend the Team System Big Event in your area, as we want to pack the house and space is filling up quickly!
If you’re not local enough to attend one of the venues, you’re in luck! We’ve decided to stream the Denver event (on April 22nd) live via Live Meeting.
It won’t be same as being there in person, but hey, it’s better than nothing!
Here are the details to sign up for the webcast version of the Big Event:
Again, we’d love to see you in person, but if you can’t make the journey…
Yep, I’m serious. It’s coming to Phoenix on 6/5-6/6.

Many of you asked for the slides from the Big Event in Denver. The slide decks from each session have been posted to on Slideshare.
The decks and been uploaded to my profile, but are also organized on a Slideshare event page, which can be found HERE.
Just a couple quick tips if you’re new to Slideshare.net:
Or, since I’m feeling like such a nice guy, below are links to the individual sessions:
Thanks again to all who attended. It was a very well-received event, and I hope we can make it even bigger and better next year!
The “Day in the Life of Scrum with Team System” event in Phoenix finally has a new date! It’s June 2nd at the Microsoft office in Phoenix.
Use this link to register, and provide this invitation key: 4DEAA2
Just in case you didn’t know, Brian Harry will be speaking at this month’s Team System Virtual User Group. He will be speaking about Microsoft’s Adoption of Visual Studio Team System.
Meeting Date: Thursday, April 16, 2009 Time: 11:00AM PDT/SLT (18:00 UTC) Location: Microsoft Island in Second Life
To attend the meeting, you need a Second Life account, and Live Meeting installed. Tips for attending can be found here.
GertD, aka “Data Dude” has a new home on the web: http://www.dbproj.com/
The site is dedicated to Visual Studio Team System Database Edition. Check it out – I’m sure you’ll find some good information there!
Okay, so this isn’t the type of coverage you’d probably want to see – but nevertheless I found it amuzing. I guess Team Build plays an important part in publishing the mobile MSNBC pages..
The Denver and Phoenix venues have registered to capacity, but don’t fear! You can still register and go on to a waitlist. We do this to account for normal drop-off. Chances are if you really want to go, you’ll get in no problem.
In the small event that you cannot attend, you can still watch the Denver-based event via Live Meeting.
We’re working to re-do the webcast’s details to accommodate more people. Apologies to those of you who signed up for the original webcast and received a cancellation notice. I hope to have new webcast info out in the next day or two.
Stay tuned, and sorry for any confusion.
Update: Here's the latest registration link for the webcast: https://www.clicktoattend.com/invitation.aspx?code=137762
I’m horrible at graphic design, animation, and video authoring – so please don’t make fun of me!
Because of the overwhelming demand for this content, we’re offering two different sessions in Denver and on in Colorado Springs. We are still working to hold an event in Ft. Collins.
Please register for the one that works best for your schedule!
What’s New in Silverlight 3?
Are you interested in building business-focused Rich Internet Applications (RIAs)? Would you like to take advantage of 3D in the browser, but assume it is too hard? Have you wanted to take a Silverlight application offline? Then this session is for you. We will explore and illustrate the new features of Silverlight 3, including the following:
· Support for perspective 3D
· Offline Support
· .NET RIA Services which simplifies the traditional n-tier application pattern by bringing together the ASP.NET and Silverlight platforms
Building Web Applications with Windows Azure
This session will begin with a brief overview of Azure and discuss some of the announcements made at MIX. We will then illustrate through demo how to build a Windows Azure application from the ground up. We will illustrate how to consume Azure Table Storage, how to host services, web pages and Silverlight components, as well as how to deploy your solution to the cloud.
MVC 1.0 vs ASP.Net Webforms
Have you heard about the new ASP.NET MVC framework from Microsoft and wondered what it was all about? Are you curious whether this replaces ASP.Net WebForms? Well in this session you will learn how to use the model-view-controller (MVC) pattern to take advantage of your favorite .NET Framework language for writing business logic in a way that is de-coupled from the views of the data. In addition, we will talk about the pros and cons of both MVC and Web Forms, how to determine the best choice for a specific project, various techniques and patterns used to build MVC applications vs. Web Forms applications, and the implications for using each approach.

Yesterday in Denver, the Team System Big Event series officially kicked off. By speaking with those that attended, the day didn’t disappoint! The recurring comment I received was, “Can you guys make it even bigger next time?”
Big thanks go out to the speakers (excluding myself): Joe Shirey, Jerry Nixon, Rob Bagby, Peter Provost, and Ted Malone.
And an even bigger thanks to those of you who made the trip to DTC for the day! I certainly hope it was worthwhile.
Many people asked about getting their hands on the slides used in yesterday’s six sessions. I’ll work to get those shared out (probably on Slideshare.net or something) in the next week or so. Stay tuned!
