  • Blog Post: Anybody for some free (and clever!) Visual Basic 2008 training?

    In the UK we are working with InnerWorkings to create a great offer of training to UK developers. We still have some stuff to sort out but I am hopeful that we will be able to share the details of this very early in 2009. In my previous depth role we used InnerWorking successfully to help early adopters...
  • Blog Post: My low tech polls: show of hands at the UK MSDN events

    I have been asking a few “raise your hand” questions at the MSDN events we are currently delivering in various parts of the UK. I thought they would be worth sharing. What language do you code in? C# – around 60% VB – around 40% Good stuff! Something else (normally C++) – one or two folks Do you subscribe...
  • Blog Post: A very good showing of VB developers

    As folks should know, as of July I stopped doing any demos in C# (pretty much) and switched to Visual Basic .NET – the simple reason being I know at every event we attend we have a large contingent of VB developers that we make sit through C# demo after demo – for which I apologise. I think last Wednesday...
  • Blog Post: Another new find for me – MyVBProf.com

    Just stumbled across this great resource of very nicely done screencasts on developing with Visual Basic 2008.

  • Blog Post: 40% off Visual Basic .NET and C# Books ... (UK)

    Visual Basic 6 developer moving to .NET - you need a good book! http://www.microsoft-press.co.uk/hellodotnet I have been looking for ways to help the Visual Basic 6 folks transition to .NET. Paul in my old ISV team suggested a discount of Microsoft Press VB books. He kicked off a conversation with MS...
  • Blog Post: Eric will be appearing...

    Thought I would have an attempt to list where you could bump into me in person (or where you need to avoid bumping into me) - and should see some Visual Basic .NET as a result :-) NB: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-gb/bb905504.aspx for all MSDN events 2008 August Nothing Scheduled yet -...
  • Blog Post: Maybe see you at NxtGenUG Fest08 in Reading on Thursday 12th?

    I love to put faces to names (not least because I am terrible with names but pretty decent with faces!). I am doing a short 10minute intro as part of the keynote of Fest08 tomorrow and hope to work in the back of the room as much as possible during the day and hang out with the attendees during the breaks...
