Its been a while that i wrote an entry in my blog. Actually didn’t had anything to rant or well may be lazy to rant out. Now i do have some news so let me pen those down.

BDotNet which is one of the India’s largest and most active Microsoft User Group is having a UG meet this Saturday i.e. September 18. Following is a new Logo that was designed for BDotNet. I like this logo and the tag line – “People, Technology and Passion”. The tag line is so apt – if you have people and technology and people have passion for technology – that’s what UG’s are all about.

UG meeting -  Sept 18th 2010 @ 11AM

Well this time i have one of the slots as a speaker. Yes i am up for speaking again. This will be my 3rd ever community speaking and presentation. What interesting is my master Mr Vinod Kumar (@vonodk_sql)– who i really take as a sensei in public/community speaking – has told me that he is gonna be there. So little jinxed about the presentation. But i am looking forward to his feedback and comments. If any of you readers out there had attended Community Tech Days held in Bangalore, you will know how Vinod floored everybody with SQL gotchas.

The topic i am gonna be speaking this time is – WebMatrix. This was a new tool released by Microsoft couple of days back. So if you want to know more about this tool – just hop into the UG meet.

Here are the event details:
