December 14--Short presentations plus MSDN giveaway

Our December meeting features a few short presentations. Bill Fitzgerald will talk about SQL Stored procedures with .NET. Bob Pierce will present "Sidebars, add customizable convenience for your users."

Here's Bob's abstract: A customizable sidebar is a great way to give your users quick access to information and functionality to increase productivity. I will show some of the benefits of a sidebar as well as the technique I used to create a production sidebar using VFP. I will then discuss some of the things I learned and would do different if I were to build a sidebar from scratch today.

Depending on time, we may have one more short take.

We will be raffling off a one-year Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate with MSDN subscription, with a retail value of nearly $12,000. (Note: it must be activated by the end of the year.) All those present will be eligible to win. We have some nice giveaway items from Microsoft as well.

We're looking for presenters for 2011. Please get in touch with Bob Pierce (rpierce@smooth-on.com) if you have something to share with the group.
