Last night, the Mississippi Coast .NET User Group held its first meeting at the PPS Plus Software office in Biloxi, MS. ComponentOne was happy to sponsor this meeting and we look forward to continuing to work Brad and the rest of the group as they grow. Eight devs attended the initial meeting, which is larger than the core of some pretty solid user groups I've met, so they're off to a decent start. The speaker was Keith Elder, one of the founders of Hub City .NET User Group and co-host of Deep Fried Bytes. Keith's topic was "Structure and Guidance for Organizing Applications within Visual Studio" (that just rolls right off the tongue, Keith). There are many ways to (mis)organize your solutions, and a bad setup can be very detrimental to your development, so it's a fitting talk to start a new user group off with. Brad Huffman, the organizer of the group, was nice enough to send a couple photos from last night's meeting.

Below is Brad Huffman, sporting a sweet pair of socks from Tech-Ed.
