DevTeach is happening May 12-16, 2008, this time in Toronto, Canada. DevTeach is a fantastic conference and that’s not because I’m speaking there or organizing the Agile Track – though those are good reasons too. Just take a look at the line-up of internationally known speakers. Attendance is purposely capped in the hundreds to encourage […]

Thanks to everyone who came to my presentations during DevTeach. I’m going to try something different than zip files for distributing code samples. I’ve set up a public Subversion repository on Google Code here. If you’ve got a Subversion client (such as TortoiseSVN) installed, you can point it to: The slidedecks are available in […]

I spent last week hanging out at DevTeach in Vancouver. Awesome conference. Although heavily Canadian, people from around the world showed up. (I finally got a chance to meet Oren Eini (aka Ayende Rahien) in person after emailing/IMing/etc. for a long time.) The Agile track was particularly well-attended, often with standing room only available. Of […]

The ALT.NET Open Space Conference in Austin has come to a close. It was a fantastic experience. I had an opportunity to connect with many people whose books I have read and tools I use. Thanks to everyone who came for sharing their time and knowledge. Given that I’m used to wearing the presenter hat, […]

Coming to Austin, TX… October 5-7, 2007… Brought to you by the NHibernate Mafia themselves… 3 days of ALT.NET mayhem… See behaviours twisted, tests tortured, dependencies injected, object-relations mapped, and DSLs like you’ve never seen them before… More seriously, what exactly is ALT.NET? David Laribee coined the term to describe developers who look outside the “official […]

My duties as a TechEd booth babe are now done – at least until next year. It was a fun, but exhausting, week and I was typically running on 3-4 hours sleep per night. It all started Sunday night with Party with Palermo. Jeffrey Palermo threw an awesome party again with 437 geeks in attendance at the […]

Next week, I am competing in Speaker Idol at TechEd 2007 in Orlando, Florida. What is Speaker Idol? Think Idol – Geek Edition. There will be twelve geeks taking the stage to sing and strut their stuff.* The Honourable Carl Franklin and Richard Campbell of .NET Rocks fame will be hosting. We’ve each got 5 […]

Jeffrey Palermo is throwing another of his famous parties, this time at TechEd 2007 in Orlando, Florida. I attended a “Party with Palermo” at the Microsoft Global MVP Summit in Redmond this spring and it was a blast. A veritable who’s who in the Microsoft space. I got to meet a lot of cool people […]
