Man am I excited! Richard Campbell and Carl Franklin from .NET Rocks are going on the road again, and are making special plans to come out and visit the Inland Empire .NET User’s Group!

I’ve been working with – well he’s been doing all the work – Jim Barry at ESRI in Redlands to host the event there, and he has really come through for us. We will be having the event in the new Auditorium, which means the Inland Empire leg of the road trip will make all the other venues look like rickety old shelters.

(Update. I got so excited, I forgot the date)

Thursday, April 22, 2010 from 6:00 to 9:00-ish

Here’s a peek of what I’m talking about.

ESRI Auditorium

Go IE!

Here’s the “official” word from Richard and Carl…

.NET Rocks is on the Road Again!

Carl and Richard are loading up the RV and driving to your town again to show off the latest and greatest in Visual Studio 2010! And to make the night even more fun, we’re going to bring a rock star of the Visual Studio world to the event and interview them for a special .NET Rocks Road Trip show series. Along the way we’ll be giving away some great prizes, showing off some awesome technology and having a ton of laughs.

And one lucky person at the event will win “Ride Along with Carl and Richard” and get to board the RV and ride with the boys to the next town on the tour (don’t worry, we’ll get you home again!)

So come out to the most fun you can have in a geeky evening – and find out what’s new and cool in Visual Studio 2010!

Thanks Jim for all your help!

Keep an eye on http://www.iedotnetug.org/sf/dotnetrocksroadshow/ to RSVP for the event

Time to get planning.

The "Code Trip"

One of my Microsoft DE friends, Tim Heuer, came up with a great idea a while back, and just formally announced it today... the "Code Trip". What he's gonna do is gather up all the other Microsoft Western State DEs, strap them into a Winnebago, and hit the road, traveling to cities, towns, villages, and trailer parks, west of the Rockies to see what cool stuff developers are doing with Microsoft products.

codetrip-sign-144Personally, I think this idea just rocks, in fact I even told Tim I would be a roadie, but (ahem) I never heard back. C'est la vie, water under the bridge and all that. :)

Anyway, check out thecodetrip.com to sign up for the RSS feeds, make some suggestions, tell Tim what you think of this crazy idea....

Yo Tim! How about a stop in the Inland Empire?
