small – tier markets and Microsoft events

Burlington is a small market. We have a lot of developers coming to the user group meetings considering how small we are – anywhere from 20 – 50. But unfortunately, the MSDN events that have been here have not been drawing enough people to justify the expense of them. Totally understood. We try, but it is what it is.

However, I LOVED reading Eric King’s post today. He is a user group leader in a tier-3 market (Chatanooga). He convinced MSDN to come to his area because there is a very strong developer community there. And they drew more people than Nashville’s MSDN event – Nashville is the usual target city for these things. I know Eric worked hard to promote the event. GOod work, dude!
