MVP Summit Events Launched

One thing that I have noticed of the past few years when it comes to conference or “Summits” is that there are a lot of after parties, tweets, etc. that happen.  Most of the time it is difficult to get the word out about these events or even find out about them.  That’s where MVPSummitEvents.com comes in.  The site will hopefully be a one stop shop to find public events that are happening at the Microsoft 2010 MVP Global Summit.

From the site you can add events, create venues, display events, subscribe to the RSS feed or iCal feed, download an event to outlook or calendar client that can consume a .VCS file. Note: the creation of events and venues requires you to sign in using your Windows Live Id account, no information from Live is used within our site.

If the site is successful, I plan to white label it to use with other events like MIX2010, TechEd, PDC, etc.

I have been in software development for about 15 years or so. I started out with a small book on QuickBASIC, then moved the Visual Basic for DOS, then Visual Basic for Windows, then Visual Basic .NET and eventually Visual C#. When I am not working at my full time job I donate my time to several community efforts like:

Former President of INETA North America, currently Vice President.
Founder of the Southeast Valley .NET User Group (SEVDNUG) in Chandler, AZ.
Serving on my City’s Parks and Recreation board.

I have or have had the following “MVP” awards:

Visual Basic MVP in 1996
C# MVP since 2009
Telerik MVP from 2010 to 2012
