Trika (formerly of Microsoft Certifications and now with Windows Embedded) sent me the following email this morning. Thanks for the heads up, Trika!
"Hey, dude. My new team, Windows Embedded, is holding a bash for windows embedded/certified Developer community on Tuesday night... reg not open yet but we'll be having it open soon. I'll post when we have our reg link but FYI if you have ideas of how to get the word out! See you in LA - Trika"
Here are the details...
What: An evening of bowling, drinks, music, food and general swankiness with the Windows Embedded team (all 18 lanes, pool tables, foosball, ping pong, great food, open bar, and a D.J....)
Where: Right across from TechEd at Lucky Strikes Lanes in LA: http://www.bowlluckystrike.com/locations/info/?id=26
When: Tuesday, May 12 from 7 PM to 11 PM
Who: The Windows Embedded team, partners, and customers; plus special guests the Microsoft Certified developer community (MCPD, MCAD, MCSD, MCTS).
Why: To celebrate what Windows Embedded and Microsoft Certified developers have in common: demonstrated skills using our platform and development tools, commitment to Microsoft, and a love of... bowlng. We want to mix it up and introduce embedded development to the top Windows developers and for Windows Embedded developers and partners to get to know the outstanding Windows development community.
How: You’ll need to register online in advance (registration URL in development) and then show your printed confirmation to pick up your blue wristband (required to enter the party) at the Windows Embedded Technical Learning Center. Party is for Windows Embedded community and Certified Developers; be prepared to show your MCP ID or a transcript when you pick up your wristband.
I added this party to the TechEd party Calendar.
