With a little over a month left, there's still time to register for the November 8th Launch Event for Visual Studio 2005, SQL Server 2005, and BizTalk Server 2006 in Detroit.
If you're at all interested in Microsoft technologies, and you're in Ohio or Michigan, then definitely try to attend. You'll walk away with hundreds of dollars worth of FREE software (Visual Studio AND SQL Server), so don't miss this opportunity if these are tools that you'll use! Otherwise, you'll have to buy them later.
Besides the free software, the event is actually like a mini TechEd, with various sessions throughout the day, and free food provided by Microsoft. It will be the party of the year, and kicks off what looks to be an awesome year of exciting product releases.
