Happy to report that I am done with slabs for now and will be taking a short break before I begin trying to get Kara attuned. Will keep you posted. If anyone has any tips for getting attuned quickly make sure to shoot them my way.
Special thanks to those who have emailed me with tips and tricks for slabs, I used many of them with great success!
(did i mention that i love mass dispell and shadowfiend?)
I just got off a customer call where we talked about them delivering in-house training on the new 3.0 Framework stuff. Being that im the n00b at MS, I didn't know about .NET University.
This site rocks! If you want to teach or learn about these new technologies, you aboslutely have to check out this site. I'm a teacher at heart and one of the things that is the best way to retain knowlege is to teach that knowledge to someone else. Seriously. Give it a try and you'll see what I mean.
PLUS ms will help you formalize the training and set up a registration site for you so you just have to deliver the content (and we'll even help with that too)!
I was able to "shadow" one of my co-workers, Bill Steele, in Cleveland, Ohio yesterday. Had a great time meeting all the great folks who came out and really enjoyed Bill's presentation. I'll be presenting the CardSpace session tomorrow and am excited about getting back to the South Central District so I can get this stuff out to you.
I will be in Fort Worth, TX on 5/1 and Dallas, TX on 5/3. Make sure to come out so I can have more victims to abuse :) Remember to click on the msdn events image in the left pane to get a list of all our dates and times.
Also, make sure to check out Bill's blog for some great content!

I am happy to say we announced that WPF/E will now be called Silverlight. I dig the name and the logo rocks, but you may be wondering if it really works. Have no fear :) Check out some of the samples in the SDK that show the real power of this new technology. This one is near and dear to my heart because I did a session on WPF/E as my "audition" to get into MS. I was really impressed with the range of features that were already available in a CTP.
Make sure to visit the Silverlight Product Site to get all kinds of cool stuff!
Okay, so the title says it all. I'm the newest addition to the MSDN DE team based in Texas--freshly minted last Friday. My goal is to create an environment where my customers/students/victims can talk about pretty much whatever you want to talk about.
I am HUGE into resources but don't expect me to go too link crazy. Some of the stuff I'll write will totally resonate (big word I heard today) with you and some of it won't. So sit back, relax...relax some more...just a little more..., and get ready for the ride.
It's great to be here!
Very cool article in Wired on Microsoft and openess. This is very near and dear to my heart because I am part of the evangelism group that is tasked with getting the word out about stuff at MS. I just mentioned to my manager the other day that I was expecting to have a chip inserted into my brain when I joined MS to make me "drink the cool aid". I was suprised and scared when I found out how much freedom we have to communicate with the world. With sites like Channel 9 and others we really do want to educate and inform you about all kinds of stuff.
From time to time, I'll throw out random links to places you may or may not know about. Here are some now:
One of my buddies got a little too excited about the new features of ASP.NET 3.5...
Well at least he cleaned up after himself... :P
One of my colleagues suggested that we offer Depends undergarments in future sessions!
