It's a great story and here is the video for your entertainment and may it go viral! Developers will relate to it! Our Marketing team had a email thread a mile long coming up with the lyrics, along with many laughs. My team is comprised of Don Williamson, Shay Williamson, Eve Turzillo, Roger Hobbs and Tommy Hodges. They are the best!

Just minutes ago, I received the email from my MVP lead, Dora Chan, giving me the good news that I have been selected as a MVP in Client Development!

Looks like my Birthday pub crawl I am planning on Nov 12, will now be a MVP achievement celebration, huh? So, those in the Tampa area, pencil it in. More details to follow on Facebook.

AZ Groups 2013 : recap

Over 600 attendees were all ears at the 10th anniversary of AZGroups with several great sessions in one track. In particular, Scott Guthrie's session on Azure had the crowd riveted on every word. Scott is one of my favorite speakers and any chance I get to listen to him is a great experience. He qualifies the audience and he knows how to point the pain out and then solve it.  This is a technique I am a firm believer in for many of the 2000+ developer sessions I have delivered personally at Microsoft and now ComponentOne.  More presenters should use this approach of identifying the pain, as it really makes the attendees feel great. You can’t help but feel your life is about to get better as a result of listening to a session about solving pain, your pain specifically. Scott Cate did a great job lining up this event along with speakers Damian Edwards and Josh Twist. Several vendors were present in the expo hall and there was lots of interest from attendees on the C1 Controls. It was great catching up with Joseph Guadagno, Barry Stahl, and Fabio Honigmann.

ComponentOne sponsors Code PaLOUsa : recap

Code PaLOUsa 2013 was a great event and one to put on your radar for next year. It’s a two day event, with an optional pre con day. I got to tell you, this was an extremely well organized event with many great speakers and sessions. Not to mention it is held in Louisville, home of the Louisville Slugger museum! I actually bolted there right form the airport in time to catch the last tour of the day. I love baseball history. The tour sent chills up my spine with a walk down memory lane.  I’ve been to the the Baseball Hall of fame in Cooperstown, the Ted Williams hitter museum in Florida and this one completes the trifecta. Speaking of the trifecta, the weekend we were there, the first weekend in May, marked the start of all of the festivities leading up to the Kentucky derby, including hot air balloon races and the marathon. It was my first time in Louisville and was awesome with the smell of spring in the air. Great job to Chad Green and all of the conference organizers.

ComponentOne sponsors Day of .NET in Appleton Wi : recap

I got to tell you, the folks in that neck of the woods in Fox Valley, have a heart of gold. I witnessed a very strong and vibrant developer community while I was there. It was great to catch up with Clark Sell, Microsoft DE and he shared his plans for the must attend ‘That Conference’ later in August. I sat in on some Windows 8 sessions. I did a session on “Building a Windows 8 App from Scratch” and I showed off some of the tools in Studio for WinRT XAML. Hat’s off to  Keith Burnell, Greg Levenhagen and all the other organizers and volunteers of the event. It is a well oiled machine with great content and great speakers.

ComponentOne Sponsors May 7 Tampa Windows Phone User Group : recap

It was like no other meeting held for the Tampa WPUG. INETA Speaker Chris Gardner delivered a killer presentation on writing games for The Windows Phone. Many developers are at a loss now, that XNA seems to be on the way out. Chris enlightened up on using a similar approach that he invented without using the XNA Libraries and it was well received. Then we had two more guests which made the evening special. Bill Reiss announced he has become the southeast Nokia ambassador and will be a sponsor of the group going forward. Also, James Vertisan attended, now a Millionaire from writing apps and top selling golfer app “Shotly Golf”. He raffled of a Surface and a few phones. We also have a killer special session lined up with him next week on Tuesday May 21 at the Tampa Microsoft office titled “How I became a Millionaire writing apps” and will enlighten us all with some great experience.

ComponentOne sponsors Costa Rica SQL Saturday #189 : Recap

It was an incredible weekend with close to 300 attendees for the second annual SQL Saturday/Code Camp in beautiful Costa Rica. Plenty of great sessions and great speakers were on hand from all over. In fact, I  interviewed a good number of presenters from the US as well as Costa Rica. The SQL Saturday engine is a strong one I am finding, with many presenters traveling the circuit. I presented a session on building a Windows 8 app from scratch and showed the ComponentOne Tools, Studio for WinRT/XAML. The speaker dinner was sensational with a view like I have never seen before, way up high on a mountain looking down on San Jose. Hats off to Eduardo Castro and crew for flawless execution at this event! I love Costa Rica!
