.NET User Groups Dinner- Post Launch Session

After the MSDN Launch event for Visual Studio.NET 2005 and SQL Server 2005 in Pasadena, Bernard Wong, Southern California's Developer Community Champion and his team organized a get together with user group organizers in Pasadena Hilton. It was a nice event; Bernard and his developer events team casually discussed the role of community and user groups in developer training. Members from various Southern California user groups (Los Angles .NET Developers Group, Los Angles SQL Server Professionals Group, Southern California .NET Developers Group)  were there (Let me know if I missed someone)   to share the experience and knowledge with us newbies.

Valuable lessons were learned about user groups organization, getting good speakers, INETA, community development best practices etc. Thanks to the DCC and his team for this effort.
