I promised I would let people know when I was speaking next....

I will be giving a talk at the .NET Developer's Association on February 14, 2004 in Redmond, WA, USA. I'll be talking about a lot of the exciting globalization features that are new in Whidbey. If you are local (or traveling to Seattle) and interested, you can get more info about the meeting at: 


You do have to be a member for the raffle, but anyone can show up for the presentation. And in case I owe you a book from the raffle that was done the last time I spoke, I will bring them with me!

Now it is Valentine's Day, so if you need me to write a note so your S.O. will understand why you have to be home a little late that night then let me know and I'll see what I can do. (Or you can bring him/her along, though a technical presentation may not be the best Valentine's Day "date" environment.)

Achim Ruopp's session at the 27th Internationalization and Unicode Conference (http://www.global-conference.com/iuc27/program.html for more information) will cover lots of the same stuff (though of course he will be given less time to talk about it!).

When will you be speaking in the Washington, DC, or Frederick, MD, or Baltimore, MD areas?

Well, I will be speaking in D.C. on March 31, 2004 (oops, make that I *did* speak there on that date.... heh!)

D.C. is the only place I know of where somebody flew across the country to hear me speak at a user group meeting. Though that was a special circumstance. Maybe a fun story for another day....

I don't make it to that side of the country as often as I used to. But I used to have a rule that any time I travelled I would offer to speak at the local user's group. I think it started to assuage guilt over my fees but later became a fun thing to do because I like speaking.

So if I make it there I'll try to scare up a speaking gig. You know what are the good local user groups for .NET around the DC area?
