Telerik supports successful C# Day 2 in Second Life

Building on the success of the first C# Day held back in December of 2007, the Second Life .NET User Group, Microsoft, and InnerWorkings organized another very successful C# Day this past Saturday. A C# Day is an interactive experience that challenges attendees to explore the C# language and teach each other how the language works. The events have been conducted in "real life" for some time, but Second Life is enabling a whole new audience from around the globe to participate.

Unfortunately, I was unable to attend the event in person and instead spent the weekend moving heavy furniture (since our house has finally sold). But, all the reports are that a great time was had by all and that the Second Life environment is continually becoming a better learning and interaction tool for .NET developers. Telerik was also a proud sponsor of C# Day 2 and all attendees that completed the challenge received free Telerik t-shirts (in Second Life, of course). Videos of the event should be available soon on the SLDNUG website.

If you're still on the fence about the value Second Life offers to .NET developers, hopefully events like C# Day and presentations like mine are starting to change your mind. Telerik is dedicated to supporting .NET efforts in Second Life and we think it is a great new way for developers around the world to connect. So stop scoffing from the perimeter, create your crazy Second Life avatar, and join us at Visual Studio Island!
