.NET User Group: Smart Client Deep Dive

The Sri Lankan .NET developer community will be given a rare treat today when Dr. Nitin Paranjape an Office MVP does a talk on Developing VSTO Application at the NDB Auditorium at Navam Mawatha.

I have seen Dr. Nitin in action before and this guy is a truly gifted trainer and a great orator. You will understand what I mean when you see for yourself today. He follows a mantra of ‘teaching people to learn’ and his sessions are thought provoking. No wonder then that he was picked as the best MCT trainer worldwide by Microsoft.

I will be going to the session today more because I want to see and learn from how he teaches than for his session on VSTO, which undoubtely is going to be fabulous on its own.

The other speakers at the Deep Dive will include Wela on ClickOnce and Prasanna on DataBinding. If you are a Smart Client developer you owe it to yourself and your company to be there today.

This being our very first INETA meeting we’ll also get to meet Howard Lo from Microsoft Singapore (he’s also a star in Singapore). Howard Lo is also the MVP Lead for Sri Lanka, so do definitely have a chat with him when you meet up today. He’ll give you the low down on the MVP program and what plans he has for the Sri Lankan community.

This event is a brainchild Jinath who relentlessly kept on banging doors to get the event going. Kudos to him and the rest of the team which included Dinesh, Prasanna and the ever reliable Wela for pulling this off in such a very short time.
