Vermont.NET is Four Years Old

Next Mondays VTdotNET meeting marks our 4th anniversary. I think after 4 years, I’m allowed to say that I’m very proud of this! VTdotNEt has created a real community out of the many .NET developers in Northwest Vermont. That was my ultimate goal. We also have a bevy of highly skilled .NET developers in the area, many of whom are already deploying .NET 2.0 applications. We have brought amazing speakers here month after month and definitely put the .NET developer community on the map.

I think everyone in the whole group should give themselves a pat on the back.

Mondays’ meeting is the part 2 of the VS/SQL 2005 launch, and a joint meeting with the group. Since INETA and PASS were both creating these user group events, we got to do two between our two groups. So we have another 5 sets of VS2005 Pro/SQL Server 2005 Standard licenses to raffle off, certification test vouchers and some other swag. Laura Blood and Roman Rehak will be presenting. Rumor has it that Roman is going to be the demo god for the night.

Competitive Computing, who is hosting the meeting, is also providing the group with pizza and soda for the evening.

And, we will, of course, have birthday cake.

Thanks to everyone who has helped make this group be a great success!! That includes not only our members, but INETA, Thom Robbins, Joe Stagner, Russ Fustino (who encouraged me to start the group) and the many sponsors who have helped us with pizza, books and other awesome swag over the years.

Here’s to many more!
