 "We bring the community face to TechEd!"

Meet INETA at TechEd Developers Europe 2006 in Barcelona (November 6-10). You can find us in the community lounge next to our sister organization, Culminis, on the IT Professional side of the house. As the two premier user group associations for Microsoft technologies, we bring the community face to TechEd.

We have a number of great activities for you focusing on connecting like-minded developers together. We plan to record a variety of speakers; staff; experts and delegates for podcasts - which will then be edited and published on the site on a regular basis. Stay tuned for more detailed info.

There are different ways you can get involved and help make our activities a success at TechEd. Here they are.
  1. Get the word out. Blog about the INETA, post about them in forums, tell all your friends, shout it to the world.
     
  2. Volunteer. You can lend a hand. We have some general assistance positions to help keep everything running smoothly. Contact our volunteer coordinator, Tomislav Bronzin (Tomislav.Bronzin@ineta-europe.org), to sign up today.
     
  3. Participate. If you've never managed to visit INETA community lounge in past years, this year you should! And when you get to the lounge, join in the conversation. It's amazing what happens when someone asks an interesting question. ;-)
     
  4. Feedback. Past feedback has gone a long way to shape this year's activities, so make your voice heard this time around. We are eager to hear what you think of the innovations, the sessions, the moderators, the facilities, whatever is on your mind. Let us know what was good, what was not, and how it can be better. We're all ears.
     
  5. Take your challenge with Speaker Idol - demonstrate your exceptional presentation skills and become the rock star presenter of the future! Find more about this amazing opportunity below.

See you in Barcelona!

In every newsletter we introduce one of our boardmembers. This month we like to introduce Neno Loje, Vice President Academic.

My Name is Neno Loje and I am responsible for all academic civilities within INETA Europe or to be exact INETA Academic (or short: INETAA) in Europe, which is a project of INETA. We are accepting registration from academic user groups, which are founded by students and mostly have students as members, and try to serve the specific needs that academic user groups might have.

As an academic user group you receive all the benefits of regular groups – including speakers and the quarterly kit, furthermore we are working closely with the group leaders to customize that and deliver more specific content to academic audiences in the future.

If you have any questions don't hesitate to contact me at:
Neno.Loje@ineta-europe.org.
