Hey, everyone, just wanted to put out a quick post about an event that is being planned in Northwest Arkansas in July. The Northwest Arkansas Technology Summit is going to offer several tracks covering topics for developers and topics of interest for the Wal-Mart vendor community. We are currently in the beginning stages of planning and will need a ton of help. If you are interested in volunteering please contact myself or Randy Walker, you can also post to the forums on the NWA .NET User Group Site. This will be the first big event in NWA our group has put together, please help us make it a success. I'll post more details as they become available.

If you like me have been inspired to 'develop with passion' by Jean-Paul S. Bhoodhoo you have probably been using the BDD Test Naming Macro that he distributes in his Nothin' But .NET classes. He has made an update that increases the speed of the macro.
