Did you hear the Big announcement?

Announcement2 Have you ever heard Microsoft talk about some big new announcement that was going to be released at the next tradeshow?    I have and I always envy those people who are lucky enough to be there in person to hear all the juicy details.  Imagine actually having a chance to talk to the project Natal team after seeing the demo onstage.  Imagine the excitement of being at the Apple World Wide Developers Conference when Steve Jobs steps onstage to announce the latest iPhone, and then getting to stop by the booth and see it in person.  These experiences are not something that you can duplicate by reading a press release on your laptop.  As Chris Paterra mentions, there are a lot of new announcements coming at OpenForce.  The core team and DotNetNuke Corp have been working hard to roll out a lot of new project changes, which we will be announcing at OpenForce.

Not only does the conference provide a level of excitement that can’t be matched, but it also brings the opportunity to speak with the project teams responsible for implementing the new changes, features or products.  You will have the opportunity to ask both technical and business questions and provide immediate feedback on upcoming programs announced at the conference.  As we have shown with the DotNetNuke Fusion Program, we are always open to hearing to what the community thinks, and will make changes if necessary.  Having a more direct line of communication allows you a better opportunity to get your voice heard and help shape programs that are still in their infancy.

I personally find the immediacy of information access to be a great reason to attend conferences, but in a time of budget constraints there are also very valid business reasons for being at OpenForce.  There is no other venue where you have direct access to this many experts in the DotNetNuke community.   Do you have a technical question that you desperately  need answered?  Do you want to know how you can better take advantage of DotNetNuke in your company?  Do you want to know how to make DotNetNuke scale as your company grows?  There will be people at OpenForce who can answer these questions for you.  In fact, at OpenForce you will have the opportunity to meet more than 1/3 of the core team and numerous vendors from the DotNetNuke community. 

Are you just getting started with DotNetNuke?  Then you should definitely be at OpenForce where you will spend 3 days immersed in all things DotNetNuke.  You will learn how to design a compelling website, configure it for optimum performance and develop modules tailored to your business needs.  If you need additional instruction you can also take an extra day to attend the Post-Conference Workshop from Engage where Chris Hammond, Cuong Dang, and Ian Robinson will take you through building a website from scratch (including custom skins and modules) in a single day.

So what are you waiting for?  Register now while there is still time.  It’s not too late to get great rates on airfare and hotels.
