.NET Palm User Group Event!

I'd love to change the world, but they won't give me the source code!

I love this quote. It always reminds me that there are things that we can not change and for every thing else we have .NET technologies.

Talking of technology how can we forget to mention our lovely IDE Visual Studio 2005 and .NET 2.0? I know it’s very hot in Dubai and UAE these days but for us Geeks these cool technologies are what get us going. If you still want to check out how cool VS 2005 is, then we have 400+ differences out-lined for you here. Check out these cool short videos and have fun!

Well fun doesn’t end here we also have for you new Atlas release that actually is quite cool. Microsoft has released a new CTP of Atlas framework it adds a long awaited feature supporting dynamic application-controls rendering as well as several bug fixes have been made. For more details visit Atlas community web site here.

Now, if you geeks remember that we talked about having an offline event. So, finally we have a really great and exciting event planned for you.
