Root Namespace in VB
I wrote this series of data entry SharePoint web parts using Infragistics' UltraWebGrid in C#. Afterwards, the client proclaimed they really wanted everything in VB so I used one of those online converters and it didn't take hardly any time at all. The project was created with Ted Pattison's STSDEV available on CodePlex. (I highly recommend this tool ... thanks to my buddy Brendon Schwartz, SharePoint MVP for pointing me to it.) Unfortunately, the version of STSDEV I used only created C# projects ......

TechEd 2008
So this year TechEd is divided into two weeks -- one focused on developers and one on IT Pros -- and I'm going as a representative of INETA. We'll have a spot in the community area. INETA is also a big force behind the BOF sessions. If you haven't been to one of those in the past, try to check them out this year. On Monday, June 2 from 4:00 pm to 8:00 pm we're having an INETA Community Leadership Summit to get the week kicked off right. If you're on Facebook, go add this event.

The Cadbury Encounter
So when I started blogging, I assured myself that I wouldn't waste anyone's time by posting socially irrelevant noise that just added to the spam we all have grown to hate.

It's a fancy hotel you know, so there are no vending machines on the floors where the rooms filled with people are located. You must dress yourself and venture down to the lobby and make a legitimate purchase ......

Facebook at the Party With Palermo
Another good party with Jeffrey Palermo at DevTeach in Toronto. Always good to meet up with old friends and make new ones. Jeffrey and I showed up a bit early for the party at Menage. What a great view on the outside patio overlooking the city street. Geeks would be arriving in droves momentarily. Given the typical percentages of male/female attendees at these events and user groups in general, I was surprised when a young woman showed up by herself and sat at a table by herself near the back. Turns ......

Headed to DevTeach
I am headed to Toronto Canada for DevTeach tomorrow. Scott Hanselman has the keynote first thing Tuesday morning. Lots of great sessions planned and networking with fellow user group leaders and members from Canada. What a great country. Everyone I've met from up there has been incredibly nice. Monday night is the traditional Party With Palermo. That's always a great place to catch up with a lot of familiar faces at these events. I'm also looking forward to the .NET Rocks hosted panel discussion ......
