It's been a year in the making, and it's almost here! The IEDOTNETUG Most Valuable Member Awards event will be on Tuesday, July 8th from 6:30 to 10:00 pm at our usual meeting place, Riverside Medical Clinic. In addition to recognizing and congratulating those who have worked hard at making a difference in the Inland Empire .NET community we will have speakers. Boy howdy, will we have speakers. Not 1. Not 2. Not 3. But FOUR speakers!

  • Mike Vincent from INETA will be presenting on Dynamic Languages (Python, Javascript, Ruby)
  • Matt Penner (yeah, that Matt Penner) will be showing us how to set up source control with SVN
  • Our local MVP, Al Pascual, from ESRI, will be showing off his open source project called GeoTwitter
  • Janine Rood, InnerWorkings Director of Marketing will be showing us how to use the InnerWorkings Drills
  • Efren Toscano from TechZulu will be on hand to video tape the whole event
  • Various other special guests will be making appearances as well

Plus, if your name is on the upper left list of the UG website, you'll get a prize for participating. And if that's not enough, the sponsors have stepped forward for this event and are providing extra swag.

So what are you waiting for? It's time to show the rest of the .NET development world that the Inland Empire is force to be reckoned with! RSVP now to get in on all the fun, plus you'll get an extra raffle ticket.

Attendance fee for non-members is $5.00. Food (not pizza this time around), sodas and water will be on hand.

Thanks! See you next Tuesday. Have a happy, and safe 4th of July!

About the author

James James is a five time and current Microsoft MVP in Client App Development, a Telerik Insider, a past Director on the INETA North America Board, a husband and dad, and has been developing software since the early days of Laser Discs and HyperCard stacks. As the Founder and President of the Inland Empire .NET User's Group, he has fondly watched it grow from a twice-a-month, early Saturday morning group of five in 2003, to a robust and rambunctious gathering of all types and sizes of .NET developers.

James loves to dig deep into the latest cutting edge technologies - sometimes with spectacular disasters - and spread the word about the latest and greatest bits, getting people excited about developing web sites and applications on the .NET platform, and using the best tools for the job. He tries to blog as often as he can, but usually gets distracted by EF, LINQ, MVC, ASP, SQL, XML, and most other types of acronyms. To keep calm James plays a mean Djembe and tries to practice his violin. You can follow him on twitter at @latringo.

And as usual, the comments, suggestions, writings and rants are my own, and really shouldn't reflect the opinions of my employer. That is, unless it really does.
