HEROES happen in Kraków
Last Wednesday I had the privilege of representing the KGD.NET user group at the Heroes Happen Here launch event in Kraków. It's hard for me to say anything about the presentations because I actually didn't see even a single one (but others already blogged about it here and here). Instead I spent the whole day backstage chatting with my good friends: Asia Grzywna, Mateusz Kierepka, Pawel Potasinski, Bartosz Pampuch, Tadeusz Golonka, Grzegorz Kolarz, Pawel Lukasik, and Michal Brzozowski just to name ......

Won 4th prize in Community Credit October 2008 Contest
Yesterday I was pleasantly surprised by receiving email from David Silverlight that I had won 4th prize in Community Credit October 2008 Contest. The prize I won is the awesome Electronic Drum-Kit T-Shirt that you can hit with your finder to play drum sounds. I think it would totally rock combined with the Equalizer T-Shirt I got from my lovely wife some time ago. The Community Credit awards are presented for community related activities that you submit during a month. For each activity you receive ......

Visual Studio 2008 InstallFest in Krakow
Early this month I've read Scott Hanselman's invitation to Visual Studio 2008 InstallFest in Portland. If found the idea to get lots of people to install Visual Studio together quite interesting. I started looking around and quickly learned that this is a huge event for all .NET user groups in United States. However it turned out these meetings are not being held anywhere in Europe. What a bummer! But I liked the idea so much that I though we should organize this in our user group ourselves. We asked ......

We have a new MVP in Kraków!
I'm really happy to announce that last week our good friend Bartosz Pampuch received the MVP award in Visual Developer - Team System category. I think this is a well deserved nomination. I've met Bartek few years ago at one of our first .NET user group meetings (KGD). From the outset he was a very active member and throughout the years delivered many outstanding presentations. Bartek is currently leading the RND team for one of the largest software houses in Poland, where he researches new technologies ......

Summary of 19th September .NET Geeks Lunch
Yesterday we met for again on .NET Geeks Lunch in Kraków. I'm happy to report that this time we had doubled the number of participants (9 people showed up) and welcomed some new faces. So in order to break the ice we had prepared a super-short presentation (just enough to fit the time between ordering the meal and bringing it to the table). The topic was on methods and tools to support our learning process. Bartek demonstrated how he uses some cool features of Microsoft OneNote for taking notes. ......

Our first .NET geek dinner was great!
Since February I work as independent contractor, and so far I like it a lot but the only thing I miss about working from home is face-to-face contact with other developers. So after listening to Scott Hanselman's podcast on how to become a better developer I decided to take one of his advices and organize a geek dinner. I invited few friends from my past jobs and our Kraków .NET User Group. We met in nice indian restaurant near Kraków's market square and had great time discussing all maters mostly ......
