I have left Microsoft and this blog is no longer under my control. All of the content should remain for some time however and any new updates can be found at http://davedev.net.

Over the next three weeks I will be packing it up, hitting the road, and talking directly with Developers and Designers like you! From Philly to Norfolk to Harrisburg to Pittsburgh I’ll be showing off in person everything Expression Studio 3, Silverlight 3 and Windows 7 can bring to your applications.
First up is the rest of the MSDN Mid-Atlantic Roadshow. Curious about Silveright 3? Expression Studio 3? I’ll be giving both an overview as well as tips and tricks I’ve picked up the past two years in Blend. We’ll be giving away Expression Studio 3 trial DVDs to all attendees and raffling off some great prizes like Xbox 360 games.
Creating Rich Internet Applications on the Microsoft Platform using Silverlight 3 and Expression Studio 3
You’re a Developer not a Designer. So how do you shine in this new world of Rich Internet Applications (RIA) while still leveraging your .NET skills? This 2 hour overview will get you up to speed on the latest Microsoft Silverlight, Expression Studio and Visual Studio has to offer. Go beyond hello world and get the latest tips and tricks to make your application shine. You’ll be surprised how easily you can create a working web application that is engaging to your users, and integrates with your existing web architecture.

Next up are the official Windows 7 launch events! Interested in how you can use the new features in Windows 7 to enhance your application? Multi-touch, jumplists and new graphics options are not only easy to code in but they offer competitive advantages.
I’ll be covering both the Philadelphia and Pittsburgh launches so be sure to sign up and say hello.
After wrapping up the MSDN Roadshow and Windows 7 launch event I will be heading over on Saturday, Oct 3 to Philly Podcamp! If you’re like me and convinced of the important changes New Media has brought about and continues to bring then this is your chance. Not to mention an opportunity to completely embarress me in Guitar Hero. You can register on the Philly Podcamp site here.
Hope to meet you in person!
