It is time for another CDNUG event! This event will probably be the last event of CDNUG before summer holidays. The next event will take place next September.

In the second session, Karl Davies-Barrett (Developer Platform Evangelist for Microsoft Malta & Cyprus and great friend of our User Group) will present Visual Studio 2010.
