[MD1] Center for Software Development Upcoming Events

Attention Developers:

Below is a schedule of upcoming events you may be interested in. As you may
know Apple is a sponsor of the center for software development and Apple
developers can attend any of the CSD seminars free of charge. Developers
can also use the center's testing facilities which are available on shorter
notice than Apple's compatibility labs.

Contact CSD at (408) 494-TEST and indicate you are an Apple Developers.

In response to popular demand, the Center for Software Development has a
number of Venture Capital 1on1s and equity financing events coming up!
Please pass this information on to anyone you think could benefit from
attending and feel free to call me directly with any questions -
408-494-8302.

Thanks!
Sandy
