If you're not familiar with the .NET Foundation, it's a great organization that helps promote and fund the .NET community and open source projects. You can read more about it here if you're not familiar with it: https://dotnetfoundation.org/
I've decided to throw my hat into the ring for the board of the .NET Foundation. I believe that the board does great work fostering the next generation of .NET projects. Here's why I want to be on the board:
I'm passionate about .NET, but it's not the only community that I interact with. I am perplexed by the lack of .NET in non-enterprise environments (e.g. education, startups, etc.). I want to help drive the .NET Foundation to help projects that will help drive that adoption. Furthering the tools and projects that help improve the .NET community and welcome more members in with open arms.
I had a great time today (except for the drive) at the Alabama Code Camp. I want to thank everyone in Huntsville for a great welcome and thank Doug Turnure for help facilliting it all. (And thank Doug for following me on twitter;) Here are links to the presentations.
I am happy to announce that I've won the first prize (not the grand prize) on Community Credit again. David Silverlight is going a lot of good by letting those of us who blog win prizes for doing what we'd do anyway. If you are blogging and not reporting it to Community Credit, start now...there are goofy prizes to win!
June was a busy month and it looks like I won the June Grand Prize from Community Credit (founded by David Silverlight). I am looking forward to my new VGA glasses...cool!
I can't wait to run around the house and look like Jordy (sp?) from ST-TNG!
I just saw this new Microsoft viral site. Not confident about the content yet, but I love some of the look and feel and I am apt to steal some of the ideas (I love the collapsable topics, inline commenting, and popup log in).
Here's a Channel 9 (yeah its related) story on how they made it with ASP.NET 2.0!
I just heard through the grapevine that Brendon Schwartz was awarded an MVP for his work with ASP.NET (and no doubt the Atlanta Community). Congratulations, you've earned it.
