Bernard Wong does an excellent job of developer event's evangelism; kudos to him on the launch of new .NET user group in Santa Barbara. He maintains a list of socal development events which comes in pretty handy and I try to attend most of them. In first week of November, in time tested Los Angeles.NET developers group, we have a promising event coming up on enterprise library, the meta framework. I'd love to attend it but unfortunately, I'll be attending dev connections in Las Vegas. Also .NET rocks is coming to town. For the complete list of socal events, also check socal.NET group's events portal and LA.NET events calendar.
Enterprise Library for .NET
Monday, November 07, 2005 at UCLA campus, Center for Health Sciences Room 53-105

Learn how to leverage the Microsoft “Enterprise Library” of application blocks for .NET to build an enterprise application framework for your organization. The Enterprise Library version 1 for .NET Framework 1.1 was released nearly a year ago, and Enterprise Library version 2 for .NET Framework 2.0 will be available soon. The Enterprise Library (or "EntLib" for short) is not a “component”, or even a framework that you can use as-is. It’s something that you can create your own application framework from, and package *that* framework for your developers to use. In other words, it's like an application framework starter kit.
