I am a have been planning to post his since we got back from the We Are Microsoft Charity Challenge Weekend that was held in Dallas, TX from January 16-18, 2009. This was an awesome event that saw over 100 developers come together over the weekend to develop web sites for 20 charities in the Dallas, TX area.
I was most proud of the representation from our region at the event. The Northwest Arkansas and Ft. Smith area send down 12 people, and the Bartlesville .NET User Group also sent a team. Our part of the world represented very well at this event.
Chris Koenig has posted a follow up that give a great overview of the event in this post.
My hope is that we will be able to organize an event like this in Northwest Arkansas this fall. With everyone that attended we should have a great base of knowledge to get it organized. If you are interested please contact me.
Thanks again to everyone that I worked with and traveled with for the event it was an awesome experience.
