This week was one of wrap up and preparation. The end of Q3 for our financial year, preparing for a strong Q4, and all the next financial year planning that’s about to come crashing down, and that’s not to mention TechEd09. Huge things planned there. My role this year is looking after “Community and Industry” and as always willing to learn, to try something new. So if you have any thoughts on:

  • How we can include Community in the TechEd09 experience – or -
  • How we can extend TechEd09 experience to the Community

Please do contact me using the usual channels – Twitter, Facebook, Email etc

Oh and I’ll be at CodeCampOz next week-end. Are you a developer? Going to CodeCampOz? You should, as ever Mitch and Greg have done a fantastic job in lining up some of the best .NET Developer Speakers in the industry right now.

It’s also the end of my first month of cycling to work. If you watched my first video, you’ll be pleased to hear that I can successfully cycle all the way up all the hills both to and from work now. As I found out on that fateful first trip, the first 750m from my front door is more gruelling than it seems. Of course it’s also the treat when I cycle home again :-)

So a month in, and totally committed. I almost feel like I’m cheating on the days that I drive. But I’m not ready to make this an everyday event just yet. For the last two weeks I’ve cycled to and fro 3 times, and this week added a session of the good ol’ “Hammertime” boxercise again. I truly felt it riding home tonight.

So another couple of weeks easing up to 4 times, and we’ll see how much of that spare tyre I managed to shift by the time I go to South Africa in May….

But before then – CodeCampOz – see you there
