See you at Exchange Connections!
Anyone planning to come to the Windows and Exchange Connections conference in Las Vegas in November? I'll be there! This is my favorite Connections since it happens at the same time as the SharePoint, Office, ASP.NET, and other developer's conferences. I have 3 new presentations I am doing at this conference and I hope they are going to be well received.
