Telerik at Houston TechFest August 25th

Your next opportunity to meet with Telerik face-to-face and to hang out with a few hundred .NET developers is quickly approaching. The first annual Houston TechFest will be held Saturday, August 25th, and yours truly will be there meeting with developers and doing a session on ASP.NET AJAX with Telerik's RadAjax "Prometheus". The Houston TechFest is being put on by the Houston DNUG (.NET Users Group for the uninstructed) and it will be held on the campus of the University of Houston. As a Platinum sponsor, Telerik will also be distributing free CDs and t-shirts to all event attendees, so don't miss your chance to get your hands on some genuine Telerik cotton.

The keynote speaker for this event is Brad Abrams (Microsoft, Group Program Manager for the UI Framework and Services). He'll be delivering a talk on Silverlight- past, present, and future- that should be very interesting to any developers considering near-term adoption of this young framework. So if you're in the Houston area, register for the TechFest and come join us for a fun filled day of .NET learning.
