November was a very hectic month. I participated as a speaker in the IT Evolution event, touring 6 cities in Gulf. IT Evolution 08 is a one-day event. There are separate tracks for IT professionals and developers. The event was organized by the DPE team in Gulf to tour 6 cities, Abu Dhabi (UAE), Manama (Bahrain), Muscat (Oman), Doha (Qatar), Dubai(UAE) and Kuwait. I gave a session about Visual Studio 2008 SP1 Enhancements, including info on new SQL 2008 support, WPF, ADO.NET Entity Framework, and Data Services (Astoria)… etc in addition to the new Arabic CLIP for VS 2008.

For more info about the event, please visit its website.

After that I gave a session specifically promoting Arabic CLIP to a group of teachers in an event in Kuwait.

Now, almost most of the people are out of office (OOF) and I have some time for my blog… by the way, I met people who followed my blog on the road… and it gave me more motivation to write more blogs and add more samples… so stay tuned, for more samples.
