Around the first of every month, we send out this awesome newsletter. It's filled with the latest Guild news, events, and developer community announcements. If you are organizing a technology event that you want Guild members to know about, we want to hear from you! Please contact us at least one month before the date of your event.


The Enterprise Developers Guild is an independently run, volunteer user group that meets monthly to discuss and share information on a variety of Microsoft-centric technology topics.
