Some upcoming events in Wisconsin

So I have avoided putting upcoming events on my blog, but recently a couple people have commented that they wished they had heard about some events.  So I am putting this post out here to announce some really cool upcoming events, but I would also like to know if you as a reader of this blog like these / hate these / don’t care either way.  All of these events are in Wisconsin, but other parts of my “territory” (Indiana and Illinois) have some upcoming events soon as well.


March 14th – MilwaukeeDevhouse1 – Part hacking, part coworking and part party, this is Milwaukee’s version of the SuperHappyDevhouse.  Bring your project, bring your idea or just show up and have some fun hanging out with the tech crowd.  The guys and gals over at Web414 are putting on this event and Pete Prodoehl has a slideshow about what to expect. 


I am currently trying to get clearance from the family to attend the event and if I do, I will be working on a Flickr-based project.  Yes, the one that I came up with over a year ago and have not done anything with – hence the reason to attend the Devhouse so I can work on it.

March 15th – Fox Valley Day of .NET – The Fox Valley has a great .NET user group and they are putting on their first all day event.  They have some neat sessions lined up.  I am actually presenting the session right after lunch on web technologies.

April 5th – Deeper in .NET – The Wisconsin .NET User Group is bringing back their popular Deeper in .NET program after taking a year (or so) off.  They have some great speakers and sessions lined up.  I will be the Emcee for a panel discussion.

April 17th  – Heros Happen {Here} launch event in Madison, WI and May 9th – Heros Happen {Here} launch event in Milwaukee, WI – These are the marketing launch events for Windows Server 2008, Visual Studio 2008 and SQL Server 2008.  Windows and Visual Studio have already shipped and SQL Server will ship after the launch events.  I will be presenting a session at each of the launch events and I have no idea why they added semicolons to the title.


Milwaukee Registration and Madison Registration are both open, and I would recommend registering soon as these events are “selling out”.
