Tulsa School of Dev: Snow and Code


Just completed a great day yesterday at the Tulsa School of DevRob Tennyson, Devlin Liles, and myself headed over very early.  All three of us gave presentations that were really well received.  Rob presented on Advanced Linq, Devlin covered some great info on Sql Server Reporting Services, and I gave a new presentation on using WCF Syndication to consume and create RSS/ATOM feeds.

Despite the snow, which came down like a Colorado blizzard, the turn out was good and we all had a great time. Thanks to David Walker for having me and the Arkansas gang out we had a great time.

Now it is time to finish gearing up for the Northwest Arkansas Code Camp on April 25th.  Hopefully we won’t have any snow.

Tulsa School of Dev March 28, 2009


School of Dev 2009 - Saturday, March 28th 2009 is going to be bigger and better than ever!  This year we are joining efforts with the first ever SharePoint Saturday Tulsa!

Offering something for everyone! SharePoint End Users, Developers, Administrators and Architects.  Of course, the School of Dev content will continue to deliver for everyone from beginner to advanced developer!

There's no greater pleasure for an event organizer than to have the advanced developers come up after an event and say how much they learned. This is what happened last year. This year will be even better.

You think you already know it all? Show up and you'll feel like you should be a contestant on "Are you Smarter than a 5th Grader?".

Registration will be open soon, so keep your eye on the School of Dev 2009 site for more details.

This is the first attempt to have a regional event in Northwest Arkansas and we will be closely monitoring attendance to determine if we should continue to create events of this nature in this area.

We Are Microsoft: Give Camp Dallas Update


I am a have been planning to post his since we got back from the We Are Microsoft Charity Challenge Weekend that was held in Dallas, TX from January 16-18, 2009. This was an awesome event that saw over 100 developers come together over the weekend to develop web sites for 20 charities in the Dallas, TX area.

I was most proud of the representation from our region at the event.  The Northwest Arkansas and Ft. Smith area send down 12 people, and the Bartlesville .NET User Group also sent a team.  Our part of the world represented very well at this event.

Chris Koenig has posted a follow up that give a great overview of the event in this post.

My hope is that we will be able to organize an event like this in Northwest Arkansas this fall.  With everyone that attended we should have a great base of knowledge to get it organized.  If you are interested please contact me.

Thanks again to everyone that I worked with and traveled with for the event it was an awesome experience.
