At the Speed Of .NET

During VSLive! in Orlando, FL in September Microsoft invited some CodeWise Community members (DotNetJunkies.com, ASPAlliance.com, CodeProject.com and angryCoder.com) including devCity.NET's own Serge Baranovsky, and representatives from Microsoft vendor partner program (Crystal Decisions, Rational), to join them at the Richard Petty Driving Experience speedway.
