AACS: Day of .NET GrokTalks

Leading up to the Day of .NET in Ann Arbor event, the Ann Arbor Computer Society (AACS) is hosting an evening of GrokTalks as part of their regular meeting on May 3, 2006 featuring a lot of the same speakers that will be presenting at DoDN.

What's a GrokTalk, you ask? It's a short (~10 minute) presentation on a single topic ("All Stuff and No Fluff" is the format). The Regional Directors gave a series of GrokTalks at last year's TechEd (

The May 3 evening will feature 8 or 9 talks in 90 minutes. At this time, speakers include Aydin Akcasu, Jason Follas, Darrell Hawley, Jim Holmes, Josh Holmes, John Hopkins, Martin Shoemaker, Bill Wagner, and a very special disembodied guest presenter: Carl Franklin (.NET Wonk, MVP for Visual Basic, Regional Director, Hunter/Gatherer... oh yeah, and host of a little podcast called .NET Rocks! ).

(The final list of confirmed speakers will be posted to the AACS site prior to the event).

AACS meetings are free and open to the public. Supporting membership is $20 per year.

Time: 6:00 pm
Location: Spark Central. 330 E. Liberty, Ann Arbor MI
