MSDN subcribers can now download VS 2005 BETA 2 from MSDN downloads.
The Express Editions have also been updated:
The latest version of SQL Server 2005 is the April Community Technology Preview (CTP). For the rest of the Beta cycle, you'll see CTP instead of Beta releases.
Do you know that you can deploy apps built with Beta 2 using a Go-Live license?

Happy downloads :-)
Good news. The one and only Nick Landry has accepted to be the panel animator at the user group night architecture event at DevTeach.
See my previous post:
A little scoop: I'm working on a special software architecture user group meeting of GUVSM to be held at DevTeach. We'll have Joel Semeniuk talk about at subject to be determined. Joel is an INETA speaker, a Microsoft Regional Director and a brand new Software Architecture MVP.
Following Joel's talk, we'll have a panel of experts consisting of:
Beth Massi, Software Architecture MVP
Joel Semeniuk, Software Architecture MVP, Microsoft Regional Director Winnipeg
Barry Gervin, Software Architecture MVP, Microsoft Regional Director Toronto
Mario Cardinal, Software Architecture MVP
Carol Roy, .NET architecture specialist for the public sector @ Microsoft Canada
The panel will be lead by a soon to be announced animator and the event will be free to all DevTeach attendees and to all members of the Groupe d'usagers Visual Studio Montréal.
I'm very excited to have all these experts speak at our user group. Hope you can make it to DevTeach this year.
