Attending Two Launch Events!

At the moment, it appears that I am fortunate enough to attend TWO Visual Studio.NET 2005/SQL Server 2005/BizTalk Server 2006 joint launch events: San Francisco on 11/7, and Detroit on 11/8! I'll be sleeping on the Red Eye flight that night in between...

I'm pretty excited about the primary launch event on the 7th (which I received word only yesterday that I'm invited to attend as part of a separate promotion). Steve Ballmer is doing the keynote, and the .NET Rocks Roadshow will be there as well.

Are you still not registered to attend a joint launch event near you? They are happening all over the country in November and December. Click here to learn more:

The biggest reason to go, for free-loaders like myself, is that Microsoft is promising complimentary copies of Visual Studio.NET 2005 and SQL Server 2005 for EVERY attendee. These will be full versions, not just 120-day trials!
