  • Blog Post: MSDN Unleashed and ArcReady

    Not sure if everyone is subscribed to the MSDN Flash or not, but if you’re not – it is a GREAT resource for finding out what’s happening in your area.  I like the fact that it’s customized to show events and happenings in your geography (my copy shows me what’s happening in TX, OK, LA and AR). ...
  • Blog Post: OKC Developer Group Presentation – Next Gen Web Apps

  • Blog Post: Tools List

    Someone at the Launch event a few weeks ago asked me what tools I use when presenting as well as any cool developer tools that I use when developing.
