Next Gen Developer Web x.0, conferences and more... November 2006 Entries
All set for DDD4
Well the 4th Developer Day is all ready to occur next saturday and I've just finished putting my slides together! I'm actually quite excited about giving this presentation as it's a subject area that I find really quite interesting and exciting. I've got to see how new media technologies can transform businesses before and it's going to be interesting to see how people react to the ideas put forward in the presentation. What I am anticipating is skepticism and a lot of questions. I'll post the slides ......

Conference talks... small rooms... front row issues...
I have just noticed that generally people hate sitting in the front 3 rows in small room conferences, I'm just wondering why... ;) Are they scared that they will have to answer a question? Or are they concerned that they may want to leave half way through? Or is there some other random reason... comments on how to resolve this issue are welcome... The odd thing is the bigger conference rooms seem to be full even in the front rows, and on the conferences with the really well known speakers they seem ......

TechEd Europe 2006 Day 2!
OK it's day 3 and I'm a little behind on the details for what went on at TechEd yesterday... so much to do and so little time. However this time I managed to escape for a bit and go to a few sessions. The first session that I attended was Anders Hejlsberg's session on .net 3.0, the session was totally over subscribed with an overflow room that had the presentation projected onto it. The scores from that particular session's feedback are the highest so far!!! (yes the speakers in the speakers lounge ......

TechEd Europe 2006... Day 1
OK so I am sat here in the speakers lounge at TechEd Europe 2006 and have been talking to all sorts of people from Microsofties to independent Consultants. I was chatting away to Mike Hall and we were saying that we should do some sort of little chat or question and answer session on mobility so if anyone has any burning questions that they would like Mike to try answering I will see what i can do... just post them here and we will go through them. The other thing is I have the access to all the ......

MoMo Barcelona
OK so I was at the Barcelona Mobile Monday event. It was on at the same time as the one in London and the content of it proximity marketing. By that they seemed to only suggest the use of Bluetooth as the only current form of proximity technology. Unfortunately there weren't any new ideas coming out regarding the use of RFiD and such in devices to do proximity communications. I had also hoped that they would put something out about mobile to mobile communications and viral marketing via mobility. ......

MoMo Barcelona here I come
With any luck I should be in Barcelona by this time tomorrow and have signed up to attend Mobile Monday in Barcelona. As much as anything I am curious to see how much of the London ethos has found it's way over to the Spanish city. Last year Barcelona was fortunate enough to host the World 3GSM Congress and they will be doing so again this year, as such I have high expectations for the Barcelona branch of MoMo. It will be interesting to meet a few of the organisers and attendees to see if they are ......

Posts of notable interest recently
I have been pretty busy over the past few weeks and feel as though I have been neglecting my mobility stuff, but I have noticed a few things of interest around online. Some have been pointed out to me by others and some are just useful things that I find interesting. So here goes: There was a Microsoft announcement earlier this week about Windows Communicaiton Foundation support for the Compact Framework. This is an area that I am quite interested in because although Microsoft have brough out .Net ......
