I'm planning an event for vNext_OC & I'd like to share it with my 'SLUGGERS!

I've set up a poll on our Meetup site you can answer (ie, your "blackout" Saturdays, etc), or just click the link to email me directly in the content below:

To whet your appetite for something that is being planned for vNext_OC, I'm "teasing" you with a taste of what's to come...

If any of you want to have Alex teach us about programming Windows 8, email [address removed] please, so we get an idea of turnout!

The Sela Group is one of the best Microsoft Partner Companies in the world, with more Microsoft MVP's in their employ than any other company in the world!

Alex works out of Sela's Seattle office


I have seen many HTML5 business websites launch recently. We are not talking about mom and pop stores either. Major brands are using HTML5. The best HTML5 business website I have seen so far is http://www.selagroup.... …The website is HTML5 paradise!

This touch-optimized virtual office is a new navigational paradigm built fully in HTML5. SELA pushes itself to learn the newest technology and apply that technology to real-world solutions. This discipline of continuous learning drives SELA teams to remain experts in developing solutions that create a competitive advantage for Sela's clients.
