Learning from MSDN Events

Staying abreast of the latest tools and technologies is important for my consulting business. With that in mind, I took the afternoon to attend “Get Connected with the .NET Framework 2.0 and Visual Studio 2005,” a MSDN event that occurs in many cities every 2-3 months. I did learn some cool things, specifically about exposing web services from standalone applications and using the upcoming Atlas (AJAX) library in conjunction with ASP .NET. That being said, there were some parts that dragged on. I think the best perk of every session is getting the DVD at the end. It comes packed with recent betas of Windows Vista and development tools. I would recommend selecting only the sessions that are most interesting to you or maybe slipping in towards the end just for the DVD 😉
