Frederick .NET User Group November Meeting
FredNUG is pleased to announce that we have another great speaker lined up for November. On November 18th, we’ll start with pizza and social networking at 6:30 PM. Then, starting at 7 PM, John Baird will present “Building Silverlight LOB Apps.” With so many software development teams trying to make the switch from Winforms to WPF/Silverlight, I’m sure this talk will be very useful and informative. The scheduled agenda is: 6:30 PM - 7:00 PM - Pizza/Social Networking/Announcements 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM ......

Philly.NET Code Camp 2009.2 - Exception handling and Memory Management
Thanks to all the attendees who came to my session on Exception Handling and Memory Management at Philly.NET Code Camp. Exception Handling and Memory Management are often overlooked when developing .NET applications. Hopefully, the session brought to light a number of best practices for .NET application development. It was my first time doing a session in the Beginner track. It was a great deal of fun to present the material to an audience filled with enthusiasm about the framework. The slides can ......

NoVa Code Camp 2009.2 - Building Loosely Coupled Applications with Unity Presentation, Slide Deck and Sample Code
A big THANKS to everyone who attended my session today at NoVA Code Camp.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions. The code samples and slides for both sessions can be found HERE. Also, lately I’ve been experimenting with posting my code via my Windows Live SkyDrive account. ......

Richmond Code Camp 2009.2 - Code Samples and Slide decks

Richmond Code Camp 2009.2 – Everything a Code Camp should be!
Yesterday’s Richmond Code Camp was a very well-executed and quality event for the development community! Attending primarily as a speaker, it was clear to see there had been a great deal of work and thought put into organization of sessions, registration, and logistics. The entire event was run quite smoothly and was over in a flash (probably a result of how organized things were run). It was great to speak with so many folks (speakers and attendees) I’ve grown to know this year from attending other ......

September Community-Credit 3rd Place Winner
Woohoo! I won another Community-Credit prize! If you’re unfamiliar with Community-Credit.com, check it out here and find out how you too can track points you rack-up for making contributions to the development community. My points this month were mostly from speaking at various code camps and user groups in the area, plus tasks associated with running FredNUG. I’m sure this gem will provide some needed stress relief during those intensive sprints in the future. 3rd Place: The Live Action Flying Duck ......

A Busy October Ahead…and Loving It!
After submitting several abstracts for the code camps in the surrounding area, I now have my October planned and what a busy time it will be! Having recently returned from the Raleigh Code Camp, which was a fantastic event(many thanks to the organizers for putting together such a well run event for the developer community), I learned that I’ll also be speaking at the NoVa and Philly.NET Code Camps. So in addition to attending some excellent sessions and catching up with some geek friends, I’ll also ......
