Chris Williams discusses with us what XNA is and how to get started with it. We tried getting Chris to discuss the C# vs. VB.NET in XNA issues, but he would not go there (but he would here). George, you have to listen as we give you a shout out. Chris recently started, with Jason Bock and Michael Dunn, a new XNA User Group in Minnesota at the Magenic offices. Check out the site here. Listen to Chris discuss XNA and Game Development! Technorati tags: HDC, XNA, Geekswithblogs.net, Chris Williams ......

Anyone who attended last month's meeting will get an extra ticket in the raffle, however, you must attend to win. To register, visit the Office Developer User Group's website ......

If you are around tonight, please stop by and have some free food and good conversation. TriCom Technical Services will be the food sponsor this evening so be sure and thank them while you are there.

Dru Sellers recently tagged me on what I would do to become a better developer so here it goes: Get Geekswithblogs.net on SubText 1.9.5 - Running a growing software consulting firm is hard. Even with John at the helm with me, it takes a lot of time. This is one of the first acts I need to become a better developer due to the fact that is will require a high level of involvement with reviewing the code changes and merging the differences. Plus there will be an additional need to really get the most ......

 

Tomorrow I am giving a presentation on WCF for the St. Louis DevCares event. I decided to come early so I could get away from the office and focus on getting my demos ready for tomorrow. Once I arrived, I remembered the STL .Net User Group meets on the day before ours, so I stopped by and chatted with Scott Spradlin, who runs the group. This however was not an uneventful day. Due to some database server issues, GWB was running like crap to be blunt. That and with an abnormal amount of traffic for ......

 

After the event Tuesday at the .NET User Group of Kansas City, Tim and I convinced Dru Sellers to attend the drive to the South Carolina Code Camp. He will be attending sessions and helping us with PodcastStudio.net and a soon to be added feature I hope you all will enjoy. We are picking up some new equipment today to help us along with these features we are adding and are recommiting to the project now that Alexander & Julian Inc. is running full speed and we have Joseph to help with recording ......

 

...and the evals are there to prove it. About 90% of the attendees gave him all 5s and there were several comments like "best user group presenter I have seen". This isn't good for me since I have spoken several times for the UG, but Miguel is a very polished presenter and he knows how to relate the materials he has produced to all types in the audience. The presentation covered Server Controls and even with 4 people in the audience of 40 raising their hands when Miguel asked the question of who ......

 

Last night I presented "The Provider Model" at the .NET User Group of Kansas City and it seemed to go over pretty well. Presenting a topic like the Provider Model is difficult in a user group scenerio because everyone comes from different backgrounds and for some, it might be their first presentation focused on architecture. If you want the presentation and samples, you can download here ......

 

We are going to try something new with the .NET User Group in Kansas City. We want to see how the local community will be assisted with a local-only newsgroup for members. With this, I have started a newsgroup @ Google Groups for the User Group. If you are local to Kansas City, come join and help us test this theory out.


 

This week we have Mike Amundsen on Tuesday at the .NET User Group and Indigo Road Show on Wednesday. This is going to be a great week of .NET and if you are in the area, you should definitely attend both sessions ......

INETA has giving the Kansas City .NET User Group the luxury of having Jeff Prosise speak at our group tomorrow. Unfortunately, I will be out of town during the presentation. If you are in the area, this event is highly suggested. I'm leaving for the airport in a few minutes to catch a ride to Kansas City. Tomorrow night I speak to the Kansas City .NET SIG. Join the fun if you're in the area. I have a new prop to try out in tomorrow night's talk. I won't say what it is so I won't ruin the surprise. ......

 

ESS, Event Share Specification, is currently in it's 0.91 version and will be where it will stay until something major is needed for future usage. It is drafted format, it was sampled for usage inside an RSS container element. We took this approach because at the time, RSS was the most popular source of syndication, but wouldn't always be. Now that Atom is gaining popularity, I have decided to add an appedix to the specification with a sample usage of ESS inside an Atom container element. The sample ......

 

Sign up now at dotnetbookclub.org and you can preview chapters from Alex Homer's book ASP.NET 1.1 Insider Solutions, due out in June, in its raw format. There are discussions attached to each chapter for you to give your feedback of the work. Thanks to Amy and SAMS publishing for providing the content. One of the issues I have heard from people and the idea of having a "Book Club" is the lack of time to actually read the books, or the lack of interest in the books themselves. Well the "Book of the ......

 

Well I am all finished with User Group presentations for this session. Austin was great, nice people, good food, awesome weather.  Scott, thanks for letting me crash at your house, it was a blast.  Now I have to finish preparing for DevDays, then taking a speaking break til after the wedding in May.


 

Well, 10503 to be exact. This is great, with the site being live for a month now. I just want to thank all the great bloggers on this site. We have 28 blogs, and more are welcome. I would like to ask you to find a friend and get them into blogging. With all the Post-PDC buzz around the future of development with Microsoft tools, now is the best time to get involved. Also, bring that friend to your next local .NET user group meeting. Technorati Tags: Geekswithblogs ......

 

A a member of two INETA committees, I feel user groups are one of the most important entities to make developers the best they can be.  If you don't attend your local user group, you need to stop coding and head right over.  On the left bar of the Main Page for Geekswithblogs.net you will find a list of the next user group meetings with INETA speakers.
