Just wanted to drop a quick post with an update on some upcoming developer events in the St. Louis area.

First, as mentioned in previous posts, the first annual Coders-4-Charities event will be held on October 16th-18th.  More information can be found on our site at http://www.c4c-stl.org.  Please consider volunteering your time and sharing information about this event with your friends/peers.  If you have any questions drop me an email at kvgros@architectnow.net.

Second, on October 22nd and 23rd at the Tivoli Theater there is a local developer conference called Strangeloop.  Check out their website here: http://www.thestrangeloop.com/.   It looks like a great conference for a great price so I encourage everyone to go.  I will be part of a panel discussion on coordinating and working with virtual teams in virtual environments.  It’s a lunch panel and I’m not sure which day it will be on.  Stop by and say hello if you see me.

On November 7th, 2009 in Des Moines, Iowa will be the Iowa Code Camp.  I know this isn’t a St. Louis event but a number of the great developers from the Iowa community made it down to St. Louis to be involved in our Day of .NET so I wanted to encourage any of you who were interested to make the drive up to their great event.  I’ll be there.  More information can be found at http://www.iowacodecamp.com.

On November 9th, 2009, there will be a Windows 7 Launch event at the AMC Theaters in Creve Couer.   I think registration for this might be closed but feel free to get put on the waiting list.  Looks like attendees will get a copy of the “More Happy” Windows 7 Goodness!  If you are already registered (or end up getting in), I’ll be onsite working a booth with other local community leaders.  More information can be found here: http://www.microsoft.com/business/thenewefficiency/StLouis/default.aspx 

Finally, on November 17th-19th, 2009 Microsoft will be holding their Professional Developers Conference (PDC) in Los Angeles, CA at the Convention Center.  This will be a HUGE event for the .NET community as many new products are released and many newer products are announced.  Not only are the keynotes and technical sessions at PDC always fantastic, but the networking opportunities and camaraderie amongst developers from all over the world is second to none.  Microsoft does a great job every year with this conference and I can’t wait for this one.   If any of you are going, drop me an email and let me know and we’ll coordinate some type of dinner/happy hour.  I’m also working a room for a Birds of a Feather session so I might run in to you there.  Check out the PDC website at http://microsoftpdc.com/ and let me know if I’ll see you in LA in November.

That’s all I wanted to share for now.  Please check out some of the links above and, if you are in the neighborhood, stop by and support your local development community.  If you have any questions regarding any of the above events feel free to drop me a line and I’ll do what I can to answer.
