The local .NET User's Group here in Utah County (UCNUG) and Microsoft are hosting/sponsoring three upcoming events. I'll be hosting/volunteering at both of them myself. Here's a little piece for them.
Come learn about the new development and server products Microsoft has launched Nov 17 and/or Dec 1 at Microsoft-sponsored events in this area! Visual Studio 2005, SQL Server 2005 and BizTalk 2006 (beta) all launched on Monday. These events are FREE and offer prizes to attendees.
Dec 1 @ 8am-noon: Best of SQL Server 2005 Launch
Dec 1 @ 1pm-5pm: Best of Visual Studio 2005 Launch
