Events for 2010

I recently sat down with some other community evangelists in the Chandler / Phoenix area to talk about some of the events that I plan to put on in the coming year. 

To get updates on these events follow me on Twitter @jguadagno and the Southeast Valley .NET User Group @SEVDNUG and continue to watch this blog.

Putting on an event is time consuming, any help I receive is appreciated.  If you are interest let me know… jguadagno @

AZGiveCamp *

AZGiveCamp is a massive weekend event where the software development community comes together to support charities and non-profits by developing or improving their web sites and applications. It’s fun, it’s agile, it’s geeky, and it’s good for the community.
