VS2005 DevCon

On June 16th I'll be presenting at the Visual Studio 2005 developer's conference in Detroit. I'll be speaking about the new features in ASP.NET 2.0 - primarily MasterPages, Themes and Skins, and the new controls (Menu, TreeView, SiteMap, Login, etc...)

There's going to be 3 development tracks ASP.NET V2.0, Team System, and Smart Client. The registration web site is now open and the fee is a nominal $99 for this all day event. The format of the event is similar to last year's DevDays. There's going to be free stuff, free food and drinks, think of it as a mini PDC :)
