From the Editor
Hello all and welcome again to MSDN Flash. As we put the holiday season behind us, your local developer community team is gearing up to deliver an awesome 2008.
Feeling a little rusty with your .NET 2.0 skills? Why not check out the MSDN Ramp Up program? You'll find free (yes, free) training to help you learn the skills you need to get ready for moving from 2.0 to 3.5. Just sign up, select your track and then you can take courses at your own pace. You'll also get a 30-percent discount on select books, too.

And, what better way to put those new skills to use than to join us for We Are Microsoft on January 18 - 20? This three-day event will match developers with local Dallas charities for a weekend of code-slinging to help these great organizations do their work. This is a rare opportunity to give something back to the broader community. Toi Wright and Chris Koenig have worked hard to make this happen, and there is a great list of charities that you can help. But, more importantly, you'll leave knowing that you've done a little something to make the world a better place.

Don't forget your local user group events. With the holidays over, area user groups are kicking up again and getting rolling, delivering great technical material as well as providing networking opportunities. Of course, it's also fun to just hang out with a bunch of other coders. If you don't know where your local user group is or when it meets, check out Codezone, where you can find your local groups. You can also check our team members' blogs, listed below.

In addition to your regular user group events, Zain Naboulsi is also busy doing MSDN events around the area. Check his blog for the latest dates and locations. Can't make an event in person? You can also join the Second Life .NET User Group, a new .NET community in the Second Life virtual world. When you join up, make sure you join the .NET Developers group in-world so you'll get notices about group meetings.

Make sure you check out your developer community team blogs, where you'll find event information, technical tidbits and more:

Details, details. Things to do. Things to get done. Don't bother me with details, just tell me when they're done.
