Barry is media wh*re and loves B*ndage! (apparently!)
As some of you may know Barry Dorrans, my honourary girl geek friend, has been pimping himself out to Microsoft (again... this time) for a Channel 9 video here in London. The video features Barry, Dave and Ian along with Dave's lovely wife and was released online yesterday evening on Channel 9. I thought I would just embarrass the guys a little and spread the fun by telling everyone who knows Barry and also Dave Oliver (from right here at GeeksWithBlogs) to go and watch the video... it really does ......

10 Reasons for Girl Geeks to go to Conferences and 10 reasons why they don't!
You don't have to queue for the bathroom… the guys do! He he he! You get noticed. You can get away with asking those questions that all the guys are desperate to ask but daren't in case they look stupid. There are no expectations placed on you re: level of technical depth. (other than probably doesn't have a clue… which is always good coz you can make the idiots who think that change their minds in seconds ;) ) You can get the best of the freebies by being a cheeky girly geek! Make the ......

So were the female speakers really better than the male ones at DDD4?
I was reading Simon Middlemiss' blog post on his experience of the developer day talks, and it made me smile. In short he found that the three talks by the only three female speakers stood out to him better than the other 2 by the guys. I am just wondering whether the girls are beginning to get better at tech talk or whether they are finally getting the recognition they deserve! Either way it's all good! On my side I am slowly getting to feel more comfortable talking on technical subjects, but I ......

DDD4: A quick overview
Well I was at DDD4 and it was a fun day! There was a little last minute preperation the night before, just polishing off the slides and placing all the links in them. It's just a shame that the Microsoft internet let me down. I ended up talking for an entire hour about web 2.0 technologies for business rather than being able to show the full power of what you can do with them. All the same I think it went well under the circumstances, and I don't think I totally fluffed it. At least the feedback ......

TechEd Europe 2006 Day 2!
OK it's day 3 and I'm a little behind on the details for what went on at TechEd yesterday... so much to do and so little time. However this time I managed to escape for a bit and go to a few sessions. The first session that I attended was Anders Hejlsberg's session on .net 3.0, the session was totally over subscribed with an overflow room that had the presentation projected onto it. The scores from that particular session's feedback are the highest so far!!! (yes the speakers in the speakers lounge ......

I was chatting away to Mike Hall and we were saying that we should do some sort of little chat or question and answer session on mobility so if anyone has any burning questions that they would like Mike to try answering I will see what i can do... just post them here and we will go through them. The other thing is I have the access to all the ......

TechEd Europe and ITForum 2006
I'm off to TechEd Europe and ITForum 2006 in November and I'm wondering who else is off over there! From what I understand the two events have very different audiences, the geeks and the techies will be at TechEd and the IT professionals and architects will be at ITForum... Hmmm... so what is the difference between the ITPro and the Ubergeek? Surely they have the same aims? Who knows... maybe I will find out more when I am there! Look out for the girly geek dinners that are going there both weeks, ......
