Atlanta MS Pros Cutting Edge VB Study group

Please join us on Monday, October 1 at 6:30 PM for the monthly Atlanta Cutting Edge .NET / MsPros / VB Study Group meeting.


Note, for this meeting we will be meeting at Turner in midtown (1015 Techwood Drive) rather than the usual Microsoft offices. If you haven't attended meetings in the past due to location, here's your chance to let us know if this facility is better. Scroll to the bottom of this message for directions to the meeting.

To register for this event, please go to http://www.clicktoattend.com/?id=121536. Registration for this meeting is required in order to get you through Turner's security.

Presentation Topics

  • Speaker: Steve Porter
    Topic: Windows Workflow Rules Engine
    Summary: This talk explores creating, maintaining and executing business rules using the Windows Workflow (WF) rules engine.


  • Speaker: Rik Robinson
    Topic: Deep Dive CSS for the ASP.NET Developer

    This will be a thorough discussion of all that is CSS.  Whether you know it as the necessary evil or the great enabler (that just hasn’t quite clicked for you yet), you should walk away with something valuable from this discussion.  I will begin with the basic box model and travel all the way to the holiest of grails (the no tables here, two and three column ASP.NET Master Page layout…yours to take home for free!).  Along the way, we’ll touch on some CSS Best Practices and gotchas in ASP.NET and take a look at the new CSS tools in Visual Studio 2008 (Orcas).   

    Rik Robinson is an Independent Consultant in the Atlanta GA area.  He holds the following certifications (all .NET Framework 2.0):  MCPD –Enterprise Applications, MCTS-Web, MCTS-Windows, MCTS-Distributed Applications.  He really hates that he has to type this in third person like someone else wrote it.  Rik is supposed to maintain his blog at www.r2musings.com.   He will soon, I’m sure.  Rik’s focus is always on the User Experience (both the end user’s and the developer’s).  

NOTE: Different location! We will be meeting at the Turner Broadcasting in Atlanta
