16:30 EST – Day 22, On the plane again after 27h shore leave home. My bags didn’t make it from New York to Montreal but I got them at 9pm yesterday just in time to do some washing and repacking. I’m now on the way to Kokomo Indiana (I know less exotic than New-Zealand and Argentina but I’m sure the people there will be as great as everywhere else). This will be my 3rd stop and the 4th for Sandman and Chief. I think I’m back to the correct time zone (in my body anyway) ......

6:15am (Argentina Time) – Day 17, This Timezone thing is killing me, I’m so confused I don’t know what time it is anymore. We Left New Zealand on Monday the 22nd at 5pm (NZ time) and after 13.5h of flying and 1.5h of layover in Santiago, Chile we arrived in Buenos Aires get that at the same time on the 22nd (Argentina Time). Talk about Back to the Future ;-). We were supposed to fly from Wellington to Aukland and then to Santiago but decided instead to road trip from Wellington ......

6:00AM (NZ Time) Well we made it to Wellingtion, but our luggages are still in transit… No Worries, what it’s important is our presence ;-). Yesterday we went around to visit a bit, Wellington is a very cool city, I reminds me of San Fransisco with 1/10 of the population and with green (trees) everywhere. I don’t have a good picture yet but I’ll post one when I do. It’s a small city, not very dense population wise but very warm (the people not the temperature). And speaking ......

Well it’s 9:30AM EST and 1:30 AM (the next day) in Wellingtion. I’ve been on planes for 14 ½ hours with about 3 hours in airports (not bad). I still have about 5h to get the get the Auckland then a little hop and I’ll land in welligton. The adventure began in Montreal were Aaron and I departed for JFK on an Ambraer 60 seater (I really don’t like that plane). When we got to JFK we had about 1 ½ hours to wait before leaving for LAX. That leg was wayyy better since ......

My two presentation went very well. I’m very happy with the turnout and add a good time with the attendees. What a feeling it is to sit with the likes of Julia Lerman, Kate Gregory, Barry Gervin, Joel Semeniuk, Richard Cambell, Kathleen Dollard, and many many others (51 in total). My talk on Adopting Team System went a bit over since I answered questions during the talk. That’s what I enjoy the most talking with attendees about real problems they are facing and decisions they need to ......

So I will try to post as much as possible about my experience in 4 continents and 7 countries not counting the airports in transit countries. So here is a quick break down of my next 2 1/2 months First New-Zealand land of the hobbits and home to our first stop on the WWT2K6 (World Wide Tour 2006) Next Brazil, followed by Kokomo Indiana (where I will amongst other things give a live MSDN webcast). Following Kokomo, I will go to Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada and then TechED in Boston. Upon my return from ......

So I will be giving an MSDN webcast on the 30 of May call Adopting Team System. Here is the link to the registration and following is a brief synopsis Do you want to start using Microsoft Visual Studio Team System, but are not sure where to start? If so, this webcast is for you. We discuss various installation scenarios and the differences between the three Visual Studio Team System role-based editions and the suite product. Customization of Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Team Foundation Server is ......

Hello everyone, So here a quick post to tell you I will be giving two talks (in French) at DevTeach next week the first one is on using Virtualization in development efforts and the second one is a preview to my MSDN webcast call Adopting Team System. This is the second year I will speak at DevTeach and it will be a blast I'm sure with all the Uber brains that will be there again this year. Great conference if you can attend. Cheers, ET ......
