I'll Be At TechEd, Will You?

June 3, 2010
No Comments.


Hopefully like the rest of you, I am headed to the Big Easy (e.g. New Orleans) for TechEd next week. I think there might be some surprise announcements (though I don’t expect all of the stuff that Mr. Forte does).

I will be there to mingle with the crowds and spend some time in the French Quarter (yeah, I know…I am supposed to stay at the booths all day.)  I am genuinely estatic that TechEd is returning to what I consider one of the world’s great cities.

If you’re interested in seeing me, I’ll be doing a talk, a BOF and some time at the expert’s booth:

Silverlight is different. Because Silverlight applications typically live outside the firewall, securing them requires an additional level of finesse. There are several security vectors that must be considered when using Silverlight including securing your application from intruders, eavesdroppers, and users themselves. This means you need to know how to protect your code, your data, and your servers from the nefarious. In this session, Shawn Wildermuth shows you how to protect yourself from these threats.

Silverlight Booth Duty

**When: **Wednesday, June 9th, 12:15pm-3:00pm

I’ll be working the Silverlight Booth to answer your questions on Wednesday as well.  Come by with the tough questions…stump the chump is on!
