  • Blog Post: IC08: Team SOAK on Aussie TV

    This morning David and Ed, 2 erstwhile members of Team SOAK – you remember, the team of Aussie Students that won the Imagine Cup in Paris a couple of weeks ago – appeared on Channel 10’s 9am with David & Kim . The boys did a great job of describing the SOAK solution, and their vision for the system...

  • Blog Post: Demos Happen {Here}

    Our National Demo Competition is starting to hot up, despite the seeming lack of activity on the Community Website, and I've been fielding a number of questions across the board. I thought it may be high time to post the most frequent, and attempt at least to answer these as best I can. As ever if you...

    Are you worthy of the title Australian Demo God 2008 ? Do you have what it takes to demonstrate complex technical techniques simply, efficiently, enthusiastically? Do you want to be celebrated for your technical prowess at TechEd08 in Sydney later this year? Are you confident enough to win an all expenses...
  • Blog Post: Preparing for Perth

    I got into Perth this afternoon, and after a bite to eat, headed straight to the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre. What a great location. Of course, the sound, vision, technical, and events crews were still in the process of "bumping in" and I wondered over to the Auditorium, where the...
  • Blog Post: Heroes Happen Launch - Adelaide

    We're in Adelaide, and it's HOT, HOT, HOT!!! Not only with the launch, but also the weather. 11th consecutive day of +35 deg C temperatures. Walking outside is like peering into a furnace. The summer that Sydney missed. Those of you following our exploits will know that I was down to deliver the Keynote...
  • Blog Post: Heroes Happen Launch - Take Two

    So I'm here at Melbourne with the second iteration of the Heroes Happens Launch, and if anything, I'm enjoying it more than Sydney. Last week I spent much of my time chatting to our MVP's, Usergroup Leaders and customers. And although I've been meeting heaps of people here too, I've taken the time out...
  • Blog Post: Impressions of a Launch Event

    This is not my first launch whilst working for Microsoft. There's been Windows Vista, Exchange 2007, and a while back the 2005 Ready Launch (Visual Studio 2005, SQL Server 2005). And Microsoft launches are certainly not new to me in my career. I was there way back when Windows for Workgroups 3.11 and...
  • Blog Post: Heroes Happen {Here}

    So I'm at the launch event, ready to rock, but I thought I'd blog (initially at least) on a slightly different spin to the launch of Windows, SQL, and Visual Studio 2008. That is interoperability with the Open Source Communities: We have a campaign for the heroes that work with Microsoft technologies...

  • Blog Post: Play Nicely Now

    I Love our generation. I Love the technology we work with, and I especially Love the Internet. One of the things I love is enabling people, connecting people. The implications of that over my career, has been to work with a heap of technologies: JCL, COBOL, Novell, WordPerfect, Windows for Workgroups...
  • Blog Post: Gb

    Or rather F#. Sorry, poor musician's joke, which doesn't translate, but Lucy my wife will get it. (she's a muso, not a geek) In my new role I've been starting to look around at dev technologies I can start playing around with again to bring me into dev conversations. There's not to many people I get...
