Microsoft MVP for Another Year


I am very pleased to announce that I have had my MVP with Microsoft for ASP .NET re-awarded.  I am extremely honored to receive this award.  Over the last year I have had the privilege to get to know other MVPs and feel awe struck to be among them.  I have learned a lot and hope to continue learning.

My community is awesome,  I want to give some credit where credit is due.  The Northwest Arkansas developer community is awesome and in my opinion is one of the best have had the honor of working with.  I am going to have to keep my skills sharp and work hard to keep up for next year.  There are several very talented people in my area and I expect to see many of the become MVPs in their own right in the future.

Thanks to Microsoft for the honor be be an MVP and thanks to my community for helping me get there.

There is a large group from Northwest Arkansas making the trip so if you want to go but don’t have a ride call around, it looks like we are going to have a convoy. ;-).

Not only is there going to be a great speaker giving two presentations, “Tips and Tricks to Boost Productivity” and “Beyond the Core Concepts of OOP” but the give-a-way list is huge.  Can you say laptop!!!

I’ll see you there.

Introduction to Agile Software Development


At the February NwaDnug meeting I presented “Introduction to Agile Software Development”.  Several people requested access to the slides so I have updated my presentations page to include the slide deck (PDF format).

It was a great session and I really enjoyed everyone that made comment and help the discussion going.  These are my favorite types of presentations.

Rob Tennyson also did an awesome job presenting Advanced LINQ.  I always enjoy it when Rob presents and hope to see him behind the podium more.

Thanks to Zach Young for making the recording of the meeting available here.

It was a great meeting and I really enjoyed presenting.
