  • Blog Post: Scott Holden on MIX, MEDC and Silverlight

    Yesterday, Scott wrote about attending the MIX and MEDC conferences in Las Vegas . I would like to echo his comment about how great it was to get to demonstrate the cool new features coming in .NET Compact Framework v3.5 and getting to meet and talk to our customers and partners. The response to our...
  • Blog Post: Looking back at MEDC 2007

    This year's MEDC was a blast! When it ended, it seemed as if we had just started. I cannot believe how busy I was for the three days of the conference. I had intended to post to this site at least once per day and only had an opportunity on the first day, after my first session. Highlights (in no particular...
  • Blog Post: MEDC 2007 - Day 1 (in progress)

    Hello from day 1 of MEDC 2007.

  • Blog Post: Mark Prentice Introduces Store and Forward Messaging in .NET Compact Framework v3.5

    Yesterday, Mark posted a 'Hello World' example using the Store and Forward Messaging technology which will ship with version 3.5 of the .NET Compact Framework (currently in beta).

    This time next week we will be in the middle of MEDC 2007 . The last couple of weeks has just flown by. My demos are finally (!) finished, the slides look great and all that is left is one final tune up tomorrow. See you all in Las Vegas next week! -- DK
  • Blog Post: MEDC 2007: T-3 weeks and counting...

    Wow! MEDC is almost here. It hardly seems possible that in three short weeks, we'll be in Las Vegas and I will be presenting the first of my two sessions. In the past couple of months, I have written, reviewed, edited and rehearsed the slides, developed demos and attended the dry runs (dress rehearsals...
  • Blog Post: MEDC 2007: What's New in .NET Compact Framework v3.5

    This year's MEDC just gets more exciting for me.

  • Blog Post: MEDC 2007: Real World Testing of Managed Smart Device Applications

    I was recently browsing the MEDC 2007 site and discovered that this year's sessions are now listed. You can browse here and find the sessions you would like to attend -- I have already earmarked several. As I type, I am taking a short break from working on my slides. This year, I will be presenting the...
  • Blog Post: MEDC 2007

    Mike Hall recently posted that registration for MEDC 2007 is now open. As of this past Monday, I am officially registered and, for the third year is a row, will be presenting a session in the Application Development track. I should check with some of my hockey fan friends, but I believe this could be...
  • Blog Post: MEDC 2006 Update: What went wrong in the debugging demo during APP326?

    Ever since I finished my MEDC 2006 presentation (APP326 - Essential Tips and Tricks for .NET Compact Framework Application Developers), I have been bothered by the fact that one of my demos did not work 100% as I had designed and practiced. During the demo of debugging a P/Invoke call (based on this...
  • Blog Post: MEDC 2006 Session Photo

    I was talking to Ryan Chapman the other day and he mentioned that he took a couple of photos during my session. He sent me one of them and said to feel free to share it. This picture was taken during my "Essential Tips and Tricks for .NET Compact Framework Application Developers" session (APP326). That...
  • Blog Post: MEDC 2006: Another Great Conference

    Another MEDC has ended. I had a great time, met many kind and enthusiastic people and reconnected with many that I met at last year's conference -- they sure seem like old friends now. :) I very much enjoyed presenting again this year and appreciate all of the feedback I received through the session...
  • Blog Post: MEDC 2006 - Day 2 (Belated)

    Yesterday was so busy that I did not have time to post the daily summary when I got back to my room. Instead, I went to sleep and did not stir until this morning. Ryan 's session (APP411 - .NET Compact Framework 2.0: Optimizing for Performance) was quite good. It was very well attended (standing room...
  • Blog Post: MEDC 2006: Day 1 -- Wrap up

    The first day is done. As I mentioned earlier , the keynote was this morning and had some fun demos. Then came the hardest part of presentation day for me.... waiting for it to be my turn. The session went quite well, mini-godzilla, the session mascot, took his place on the podium and it was underway...
  • Blog Post: MEDC 2006: Day 1 - In progress

    Arrived in Las Vegas yesterday afternoon on a very smooth, pleasant, uneventful flight. Met with many folks at dinner in the evening, some I had not seen since the last MEDC and some I had only talked to in email. After dinner, I braved the (very) long walk from The Venetian to Luxor and back. While...
  • Blog Post: MEDC 2006 or Bust

    The slides are written and the design experts have given them some polish. The demo's have been written and practiced. Rehearsals have been done. All that's left is to get on the plane and head for Las Vegas and MEDC 2006 . As much fun as I had last year, I think next week is going to be even better...

  • Blog Post: MEDC 2006: Speaker Training Day

    Today was my day for speaker training. This is a one on one meeting where you present a portion of your session and have your delivery critiqued. It is, by far, the most difficult part of presenting for me. I find it more intimidating to stand in front of one person, in a fairly large conference room...

    As of a couple of days ago, I am officially registered and have travel arrangements arranged for MEDC at the Venetian in Las Vegas.

  • Blog Post: Live from MEDC 2005 IV - Day 2 Summary

    I can hardly believe I'm still awake :) Day 2 was another very busy day. I had one last speaker prep session, my technical check for tomorrow's (later today's) session and to top it off, a late Blue Man Group performance. I had only seen clips previously... it's definitely an experience. Mark and...
