UPDATE: We moved the date to February 24th.

The stars at night, are big and bright – clap clap clap clap – deep in the heart of Texas!

Hold onto your ten gallon hats, I’m visiting Texas for the first time! I’m very excited to visit the second largest state in the union. ;)

austin The purpose of my trip is to meet with some developers at Dell doing interesting things and to give a talk there as well.

But since I’ve heard such good things about the vibrant tech community in Austin, I am trying to make the most of my short trip. On Wednesday, February 24, I’ll be speaking at Austin .NET User Group meeting at 7:00 PM CSTat the Microsoft offices in Austin.So be sure to come by and say hello.

We moved it to the 24th so if you were planning on attending Martin Fowler’s talk on February 25th, you can see both! Unfortunately for me, I was hoping to see Martin speak, but I saw that they’ve closed registration.

I’m also going to visit my good friends at Headspring as well as Dovetail Software to jabber about technology and see what cool things they’re doing with ASP.NET and ASP.NET MVC.

And of course, a trip to Austin wouldn’t be complete without a night out on the town with Bellware. I expect chaos. ;)

    That's on the same day as the Martin Fowler event! I hope I can swing both of them.

    That's neat ! Is the Austin .NET UG meeting open to all or required prior registration and fees ?

    When are you going to come down to New Orleans, LA and Baton Rouge, LA? We always do our user groups Tuesday and Wednesday respectively so out of town speakers can hit both cities. I've been told that we really know how to treat guests down here (plus it's the best food in the country).

    I'm talking to the Austin .NET UG folks to perhaps move the talk to Wednesday so we don't conflict with the Fowler talk (that way i might be able to attend that talk). ;)

    The Austin .NET User Group meeting is free and open to the public, but the doors to the building lock at 7pm so get there earlier!
