  • Blog Post: Leveraging Twitter to Promote User Groups

    I’ve been giving some thought to how I can better leverage various communications and social media to help promote the great work that folks in the Microsoft Developer Community (and beyond) are doing, and one of the channels I’ve been using is Twitter . For those of you who might not be aware, I’m on...
  • Blog Post: Herding Code: Drag n Drop Debating?

    This has to be my favorite podcast description in a long while, and not just because I’m in it. As backstory, Alan Stevens (he of # AlanStevensAvatarWeekend fame, among other things) and I have occasionally had some spirited tussles on twitter about myriad topics including the role of (or in Alan’s opinion...
  • Blog Post: NoVA Code Camp Tomorrow!

    Just a quick reminder that tomorrow is the next Northern Virginia Code Camp ! If you’re planning to attend, please note that in order to minimize wasted paper, we will not be printing a huge stack of schedules…if you’d like a copy of the schedule to carry with you during the day, you can print a PDF...

For those of us using Web Forms, rather than MVC, however, selecting elements by client ID can be tricky, due to the way ASP.NET dynamically...
  • Blog Post: Not At PDC?

    Many of you are probably aware that Microsoft is running a little event for developers this week called PDC . Some of you may already be there, but given the number of developers in the U.S. compared to the size of the LA Convention Center, it’s a good bet that many of you are not. If so, you’re not...
  • Blog Post: Updating Twitter from Windows Live Writer

    I’ve seen folks who have automatic updates to their Twitter accounts when they blog, but wasn’t sure how they were doing it. Thanks to a cool plug-in for the current Technical Preview release of Windows Live Writer, now I can do it, too. The twitter notification plug-in comes with the technical preview...
  • Blog Post: Twitter

    Well, after endless haranguing by one of my co-workers, I finally broke down and got on Twitter. I'm still in the evaluation phase, but I see some utility to it. Just need to balance the usefulness against the potential time-sucking productivity-killing aspect to it. Anyway, you can find my tweets at...
