  • Blog Post: November is conference month…

    Every November comes around and I’m always reminded how many conference seem to take place about now, it’s kind of crazy – in a good way. I’m on to week three of travel, and haven’t seen my own bed in more nights than I care to count – but ah well! Where I’ve...
  • Blog Post: TechEd09 - Top 10 Mistakes Made By Web Developers

    I consider myself a developer more than a designer. In fact, I’m pretty bad at web design. I know what looks nice, and I know what doesn’t work well, but I’m not so good at creating kick butt designs. So, at TechEd last year, I presented “Top 10 Mistakes Made By Web Developers” and it went over extremely...
  • Blog Post: Top 10 Web Mistakes [From TechEd EMEA]

    I just finished presenting my last session of TechEd EMEA for 2008 and I'm sad to be leaving! But, hopefully I'll get another chance next year. My last session was a repeat of "Top 10 Web Mistakes" and I said I'd post some of the sites that I showed during the session, so here they are. Sites That...
  • Blog Post: ReMIX Sessions from Amsterdam

    Sorry for being so quiet lately, things have been a little nutty, but in a good way. We've been pretty heads down working on all kinds of fun stuff, the next version of IE, the next version of Expression Web and getting ready to launch Visual Studio 2008. I'm really excited to see that one ship. I worked...
  • Blog Post: ReMIX: Search Engine Optimization For Rich Internet Applications

    I think that this was my favorite session I did while doing all my ReMIX presentations. It was the one I found most interesting, and most relevant to the work that I do, and see many web developers and designers doing every day. I'm not sure if there is video for this session, but if it shows up, I'll...
  • Blog Post: ReMIX: Using Visual Studio 2008, codenamed Orcas

    I presented this session both in Amsterdam and in Zürich, though I managed to lose my notes in Zürich and had do to a number of the demo's by the seat of my pants which was a bit of a challenge. In any event, it was based on a session by Omar Khan of the VWD team that he presented at MIX07, called "...
  • Blog Post: ReMIX: Implementing Rich UI For Web Applications

    In Amsterdam at ReMIX, I presented "Implementing Rich UI for Web Applications" where I showed how to deliver richly interactive web experiences with animation, video and more using Silverlight and Expression. It was based on a session from MIX07 by Joe Stegman titled " Building Rich Web Experiences using...
  • Blog Post: Web Blunders: The Top 5 Biggest Mistakes On The Web

    At TechEd this year, I presented a session where I presented my top five pet peeves on the web, the biggest and easiest problems to avoid on the web. With how easy it is to share content on the web, I felt that these top five things were the best and easiest to get rid of. In order, I felt they were...
  • Blog Post: TechEd & ReMIX

    What a great couple of weeks, and it's not over yet! In the last two weeks, I've been to Orlando, Budapest, and Amsterdam, and I'm headed off to Zurich on Sunday. I've got some down time today and tomorrow before two more full days in Zurich. I've learned a lot, seen some fantastic things, and met some...
  • Blog Post: reMIX 07 and serEstandar.es

    With MIX07 just behind us, there are some fun events coming up in Europe, Asia and else where in the world. REMIX 07 is an opportunity to for people who didn't or couldn't make it to Vegas to see some of the great sessions and events that took place at MIX. But what I like about reMIX is that I get...
  • Blog Post: MIX07 Recap (It's Over)

    Wow, just wow, that's all I really need to say. MIX07 was insane, an absolute great time, and some fantastic new stuff coming out from Microsoft for the web. So what were the highlights, for me it came down to three things, first the announcements around Silverlight, second was all the great sharing...
  • Blog Post: Pre Define Your Event Tags

    I'm on the airplane on my way back from the SV Web Builders Browser War event, and it was pretty cool. It was great to meet Mike Shaver from Mozilla (and fellow Canadian), Hakom Lie from Opera and Douglas Crockford (aka Internet Genius) of Yahoo! fame. As I was shooting photos (which will be on Flickr...
  • Blog Post: IE, Firefox and Opera On Stage Together

    I often forget to blog about some of the cool events I attend until it's a little too late, but hey, better than blogging about it after the fact, when people can't even try to show up right? Tomorrow, Chris Wilson and I are headed down to San Jose for an event put on by the Silicon Valley Web Builders...
  • Blog Post: Post Web Direction North and Web Compatibility

    I got back from Web Directions North last Sunday, and I got hit HARD with a cold or something. I made it into work on Monday to meet with the great Molly Holzschlag to figure out what our priorities are going to be for content development, and where we're looking for our long term relationship to go...
  • Blog Post: Up At Web Directions North

    This has been a pretty great few days up here in Vancouver at Web Directions North. It's been fantastic to connect with so many of you, to get to meet some great people, and hear some good, honest feedback. I think that biggest comment that I've walked away with so far (and we've still got a day to...
  • Blog Post: Web Directions North

    One of the things I like a lot about my job is getting to meet and interact with people at conferences. We sponsor a whole bunch of different conferences throughout the United States and the World; often sponsorship means we get speaking opportunities, and some great direct ways of interacting with you...
  • Blog Post: Web Design World Boston Keynote

    I just finished my keynote for Web Design World in Boston. The topic was "Internet Explorer 7: The Route To Standards Compliance". It was the first "keynote" that I've ever given, and I think it went really well. I had several people come up afterwards and compliment me on the presentation. I was quite...
  • Blog Post: IE6 VPC A Success & Web Design World

    IE6 VPC I can't believe how much of a success shipping the IE6 VPC image was! The fact that we got Slashdotted , picked up by TechMeme , Mary Jo Foley and several other big publications, and big blogs was fantastic. Beyond what I would have expected. And with few exceptions, the feedback has been positive...
  • Blog Post: IE7 Ships, and the Ajax Experience starts

    Wow, what a week it's been. It's funny, I remember when Keith moved upstairs to marketing, I watched him blog, and I watched the number of posts he made slowly taper off to where he posts a once a month or so. I said to myself, I wasn't going to let that happen to me ever. I'd always find the time to...
