MSDN Events, Ron Jacobs, and Pub Clubs… Oh My!


Today is a busy day in Tulsa! There is an excellent MSDN Event from 1pm to 5pm. Microsoft has brought in Ron Jacobs  (from the MS Patterns and Practices Group) to talk about SOA Strategies to local Microsoft Partners (Geniant is a Gold Certified Partner) and some of their clients from 5pm to 6pm. Then from 6pm to 8:30 or so, Ron will be presenting to the Local .Net Users Group ( on the new Microsoft Enterprise Library. Then, Michael Benkovich (the excellent MSDN event presenter) is taking us all out for eats at TGI Fridays! (It’s called a Club Pub – go hang out with the Microsoft guys in an infomal setting, and they pick up the tab – how cool is that!)

Busy, Busy, Busy… I however, am in Oregon this week, visiting family. Resting, relaxing…

If, you’re in Tulsa today, go check out the .Net User Group tonight!
