Fellow .Net Users, It’s been awhile since we had our last meeting so I hope everyone has been keeping up with all of the news pouring out of Microsoft. With the announcements about Windows Phone 7, updates to Windows Azure, the PDC Silverlight debacle (read here and here), and all of the other technologies that seem to be continuously updating, there is no lack of content for our meetings this year!
This month, we have a special speaker who won’t be addressing any of these new technologies, but has a very important message none-the-less. John Rogers will be taking some time to inform us about the latest security attacks that we need to be aware of and how we can defend ourselves against those assaults. Our next .NET Users Group meeting will be held on Thursday, January 27th, at 6:00pm (food will be provided 15 to 20 minutes prior to the start of the meeting). Meeting Details: **Location:
