I'm trying to work out a way to get over to the Middle East to see and talk to Developers over there, unfortunately the flights from here usually take between 21 and 29 hours, as opposed to less than 10 to use Norway as an example. This is really hard on my diabetes (and Norway will be also but it's 1/3 as long) but it's also hard on the family and I need to keep balance. That said, I'm actively working on a way to hang out in EMEA for some time, maybe bring the family along.
I hope I'll see some of you at one of these events!

Your link http://www.techready.com/ for TechReady6 seems to go to an odd page. Is it the link you wanted to post?
Here is a link to some information that one of the companies working with ms to arrange the norwegian dev. conf. has published. (only in Norwegian but still) :-)
I'll be there.
The main event is probably Tech Ed -Tech.Ed 2008 will be held in Sydney Tuesday, 2nd September to Friday, 5th September.
I will be going so I would selfishly recommend this as your best opportunity to do something :-).
If you need help on the EMEA visit, speak to me.
I'm hoping to be at the Boise Code Camp and maybe present something on Polyglot Programming with C# and IronRuby. We'll see.
Great to see you're coming to Norway. When you are out traveling the world, do you sometimes manage to visit local user groups? If your answer is no, and it's because you've never get asked, I pop the question now ;)
Oh, you will.
You will indeed.
Northwest which is a partner with KLM will start direct flights from Portland to Amsterdam on March 29th.
In Amsterdam you can take KLM direct flights to some Middle East cities like Cairo. This will cut a few hours from the total journey. This works now with Lufthansa. Portland-Frankfurt (direct) - Cairo (direct). My idea is to take a break in Europe and then continue to ME.
'Cause I just got approval to attend this year, and it'll be my first large developer conference, and I've got a laundry list of people to meet in person. :)
It would be great to see you present live.
Scott: You should bring your family over to Norway and spend some time here. We've got som great sights; the fjords, the midnight sun and the polar bears! :) I'd be more than happy to be your guide! Seriously.
Did you say Middleeast ?
We'll love to have you here.
Just so you know, there's Pakistan Developers Conference every year in Karachi, Pakistan (http://www.microsoft.com/middleeast/pakistan/conference), then there is a Gulf Developers Conference in Dubai, United Arab Emirates [link's dead] and some road-show events.
Looking forward to see you talking at the Norwegian Developer Conference 2008! I attended your talk at TechEd 2006 about Threat Modeling, and I think you performance was very good!
Question 1: What are you going to talk about (in Oslo)?
Question 2: How long are you going to stay in Oslo? The reason I’m asking - there is a .NET user group (NNUG) in Oslo with lots of .NET geeks. I think they would have loved it if you could do a talk about the ASP.NET MVC Framework or some other cool stuff you have going on.
Greetings from Norway
Gøran - 1. Not sure yet, probably ASP.NET Extensions. Maybe something on Community. What do you want to hear? 2. I can definitely talk to a User Group, but I'll probably only be in town for 3 days or so.
Thanks for the quick reply.
I’ve mailed Rune Grothaug, Anders Norås and Tor-Einar Solli about you being in Oslo and user group opportunities. So I leave it up to them taking this further with you.
Microsoft is currently hosting an MSDN event in Norway right now, and I’m one of the speakers. I’m giving a presentation about the ASP.NET MVC framework. My aim is to give the audience a basic introduction to the framework and show them what they can do with it.
So, therefore I think an in-dept presentation about the framework would be a nice topic at NNUG. Focus on goodness (pretty urls, pluggable, testable, work with existing asp.net functions) and best practices. I think the audience wants to hear you tell them how they should build an application based on this framework. How they should organize their code, where to put unit tests, models, views etc. Show how they can use ORM-mappers (LINQ, NHibernate) to gain productivity etc.
I think many of the NNUG members in Oslo will attend at the Norwegian Developer Conference 2008. So if you are going to talk about ASP.NET MVC in your keynote, you can just take it further in the NNUG session.
Looking forward to your session!
All the best
Is anyone carpooling over to the nerd dinner in Bellevue?
