One week into my European Conference tour and I thought it was time to send you lot a update. My first stop was Sofia, Bulgaria to join the great folks at DevReach. I got in a couple of days early so I could relax and get my time change down.
For my loyal readers of this blog, you've probably noticed the blog has had a lot of announcements lately and not a lot of content. That's on purpose. With the release of Silverlight 3 being scheduled for this Friday, I've been holding back on my Silverlight content until that happens. So check back this weekend for some, hopefully, interesting discussions!
I will be coming to the Twin Cities Developers Guild to talk about everything Silverlight on February 10th, 2009. If you're in town and come by and watch me build a Silverlight application from scratch in 75 minutes. I will be showing off Blend and Visual Studio's mad XAML skills as well as how to retrieve data from the server. Its a fun talk!
The DevReach videos are sneaking out one at a time. DevReach is a conference held in Bulgaria every year and this last October I had the opportunity to be at this great event. This new video shows me talking about the breadth of Control Customization. The description of the talk from the DevReach conference site:
Coming December 16, 2008, i'll be at the Atlanta stop of the MSDN Developer Conference to see the PDC content. These events will give you an opportunity to see the Azure platform, Windows 7, Silverlight, F# and even Oslo.
If you are in Florida this week and want to get a peek at Silverlight 2, don't forget to join me at the Florida.NET's West Palm Beach meeting. The User Group is going to be held on November 25, 2008 at 6:30pm:
I just finished up with my four talks at the SDN Conference outside of Amsterdam and I had a great time. For anyone who missed it, you missed a great time.
I had four sessions ranging from cloud computing to Silverlight 2. For the attendees I wanted to give you a chance to download the demo source code I wrote for the sessions. You can find it here:
I just got back from the Silverlight 2 Firestarter in New York City. I had a great time. We have a good turn-out and great discussions about the technology. The Microsoft guys that set this up were just great, especially Peter Laudati who organized the whole thing and made my short trip up there really simple and fun.
Next Monday night (July 28th, 2008), i'll be giving the short Q&A session at the Atlanta .NET Users Group. The topic? NHibernate's LINQ and ADO.NET Data Services support. If you're interested in using NHibernate but don't want to give up your LINQ skills, stop by for a listen!
In case you didn't catch it, I participated in a webcast called geekSpeak. This webcast was hosted by Glen Gordon and Chad Brooks. The topic today was "Silverlight and Line of Business Applications". While geekSpeak's usually focus on hands-on examples of creating code, we took a different tact today and discussed the larger topic of where Silverlight fits in the development ecosystem (at least Microsoft's ecosystem).
This week, I will be joining Glen Gordon and Chad Brooks for a GeekSpeak webcast. The Webcast starts at 3pm EST (or noon PST) on Wednesday, June 25th, 2008. We will be discussing Silverlight 2 and its use in so called "Line of Business" applications. Please join us and bring your questions.
As promised here are the slides and demo's from my talks at the Atlanta Code Camp yesterday. It was a great time and I got to see a lot of attendees and speakers who I haven't seen in a while.
My big embarrassment moment was at the speaker's dinner when I saw David Silverlight and completely forgot who he was (i've met him a number of times). When I heard he'd just flown in from Florida, I asked him, "Did you fly in with David Silverlight?". He promptly replied, "In a sense, yes..." I was so red faced.
