I love networking. Talking to the community and sharing stories, technology or otherwise, it’s the best part of my career. Tomorrow morning I get to try a new way to meet some new folks, and rehash with some good friends. That’s one reason I enjoy Twitter so much.

Linked.NET Users Group (LIDNUG)Tomorrow morning I am doing my first (of what I hope is many) Linked IN .NET User Group events. The format is wide open and you can talk to me about patterns, Silverlight, SQL Server, data access, soccer, football, exercise, MIX, my Silverlight MIXer parties, or whatever else you can think of. I’m really looking forward to some good conversations. For those that know me, you know I’ll always tell it as straight as I can. If I don’t know, I’ll let you know that too.

Here is some information you will need to join in the conversation. Please stop by and follow me on Twitter at http://twitter.com/john_papa … where you can engage me in a conversation anytime.

And it looks like both OrcsWeb and Telerik are sponsoring the event … both are great companies and have some awesome folks who I have had the privilege to meet and call friends.

UPDATE: I noticed the folks from Typemock are also sponsoring and giving away some licenses of their product … very cool.

A few good links for LIDNUG, too:

And don’t forget to tune in this coming Monday for LIDNUG event with Scott Guthrie.
