Omaha .NET Users Group September Meeting
Start Time: September 30 2010, 6:00 PM

Fellow .Net Users,**

**

Last month we learned about MEF and how it can be used to enhance your application loading scenarios.  Brian Olson did a great job of helping us understand how this technology can be used to improve our application’s performance and usability.   Speaking of Brian, we have some news regarding the leadership of the .Net User Group.  After more than two years of service to the group, Brian Swiger has stepped down as co-leader.  Brian Olson, who spoke at our last meeting, will be taking Brian Swiger’s position.  I appreciate the efforts that Brian S has poured into the group.  It has been growing steadily for the past two years and that can be directly attributed to Brian’s involvement.  I’m also excited about the new ideas that Brian Olson will bring to the table and the influence he will have on the group.  Please join me in thanking Brian S (bswiger@omahamtg.com) for his contributions and welcome Brian O (bolson@omahamtg.com) to the user group leadership team!

Our next .NET Users Group meeting will be held on Thursday, September 30th, at 6:00pm (food will be provided 15 to 20 minutes prior to the start of the meeting).
