Around the “Guild Hall” We had a great meeting in June. Brian Gough, our resident SharePoint expert, introduced some of the nifty new features in Visual Studio 2010 and SharePoint 2010. We still need to understand what comes “in the box” with SharePoint so we don’t run off and program something that already exists, but the ease of development – or maybe “ease of sensible development” – is greatly enhanced when VS 2010 is coupled with SharePoint 2010.

Augusta Code Camp Nov. 7th
Augusta Code Camp Nov. 7th Augusta has been kind enough to schedule me to speak at their code camp.

Code Camp was GREAT
Charlotte .NET University Code Camp was a great success Have you heard about .NET University ( It provides presentations and hands on labs for WPF, WCF, WF and Cardspace. We built our spring 2007 Code Camp on that content. We started by offering two .NET U tracks but had to expand to three. We also offered a presentation track and an XNA hands on lab track. Our presentations included Orcas and LINQ, SharePoint and ASP.NET sessions. All sessions were very well received. Our facility ......

Where has the time gone?
April started with a BANG! Doug Tunure, our Microsoft Developer Liaison, recommended me for the MVP – Most Valuable Professional award in Visual Basic and I was accepted!!! Yes, I intended to post that immediately right here, but April was consumed with hardware issues and the Visual Studio 2005 Lab Fest. Let me thank publicly all my friends and fellow Guild members for their warm congratulations. When folks who really know you concur with an award – well, it meant a lot to me. Thanks ......
