Community-Credit Newsletter
After a rather crazy 2nd half of 2008 for me personally, I'm putting things back together and getting more involved with the newsletter. That said, if you have any interesting geek tidbits, contests, conferences, user group meetings, etc. then drop by's discussion forums and plug them in so I can include them in the newsletter.

Atlanta Code Camp 2008
First of all - a huge thanks to all those folks in Atlanta who pull this thing together each year.

This was actually my 2nd code camp where I didn't speak...though I did have some slide decks ready in case there were some last minute cancellations.
