<FONT face=Tahoma><FONT size=2>On Veteran's Day weekend I will be presenting at the Microsoft Academic Alliance conference in <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />Las Vegas. When I was first asked about this I had to take a step back ... Las Vegas .... Academics? They just don't seem to mix ... but hey, I'm game! In all seriousness, I am looking forward to presenting at this conference as the attendees all make their livings in the academic world. It seems like a great opportunity to see what and how the teachers/professors are teaching the college students. It will be interesting to hear their questions to see how they view the fast changing world of development with .NET. Dino Esposito will be there as well as a few other presenters. I'm looking forward to saying hi to my old friend Dino as I have not seen him in a few years now. <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
