Tomorrow, bright and early. I get a chance to hang with my homie Bill, who also happens to be presenting on something I know nothing about: the Compact Framework. Maybe after his presentation I can understand his posts about SqlCE and start to develop an appreciation for those devices I loathe (PDAs and Cell Phones). I suppose it's not so much the device, as it is the OS that I've been in contact with (Palm, ugh!). Cell phones are a whole other subject, worthy of therapy sessions and separate ranting blog posts but I think I'll spare you the drama for now.

Others I know of, but don't know personally are Paul Wilson and Wallace McClure. They'll both be presenting on Database topics which is an area I'm highly interested in, given my CRM background. Even though the Compact Framework interests me about as much as my next bowel movement, I know Bill will make the topic enjoyable.

A quick run down of the sessions I plan on attending:

  1. Paul Wilson - OR
  2. Todd Fine - Avalon and XAML
  3. Brian Walters - Multithreaded apps in C#
  4. Bill Ryan - CF
  5. Wallace McClure - ADO.NET and SQL 2005

I'll most likely post some notes or thoughts I took from each session since I'm sure it'll have me thinking about something.

I have a more recent picture in my gallery here. I have a better picture but I'm too lazy to put it up at the moment. I figured that's enough to tell me from a crowd of 200 or so people, so if I bump into you, “Hi” in advance. If you're not going, you probably have more important things to do or something so I'll let you get back to it.

J - I was sick and left right after my presentation. I got your message on Sunday b/c i slept through most of Saturday night. Feeling terrible about missing you though my man and I will be back in Atlanta next week - we'll definitely work something out - I owe you ;-)

I pretty much figured that. I should have stayed after just to say "Hi" but I wasn't really thinking clearly at that point in the day.

I stayed up until about 2 am the night before. I don't normally get up that early and I honestly slept in 30 minute increments. I kept waking up thinking I was late because I was late for a very important thing (which I didn't go to) only 2 weeks prior.

Needless to say I was a zombie by the end of the day. When I think back I really wasn't in a social mood by then, so it was probably for the best.

Hit me up when you're around and we can work something out. My schedule is usually extremely flexible even on days I block out for being with the woman. Not like she can't tag along unless you expect on going to a strip club. Who knows, she may like 'em. Since I can vision the slap she's prepared just for reading this, maybe a strip club would be out of the question.
