I had the special opportunity today to speak to around 90 developers from Bank of America about building connected applications with Silverlight 4 today. I’ve done this demo a few times before in front of different groups (code camps, etc.) and it always seems to get a positive response. As a matter of fact, I’ll be presenting it again next Thursday night at Microsoft’s office in Tampa for IASA (register here if you’re interested).
In case you dialed in, and you’d like the PowerPoint deck, here it is:

Also, somebody asked about my Chalkboard theme for Visual Studio, and I thought it’d be a good time to post an update for Visual Studio 2010.

I’m doing a webinar today for my company, Tribridge, entitled “Behind the Scenes of SalesForce.com and Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0: The Developer’s Story”. Long titles aside, I’m super excited about delivering this content to a technical audience.
This is actually a follow-up presentation from a webinar that my colleague Seth Kircher did a few months back. If you didn’t see the first part, you may want to watch it before attending today’s webinar.

I can’t believe February 2009 is already here. Seems like only yesterday I was intently waiting on my flying car like the rest of us, and now I’m living in the future! In case you’re not up to speed, there’s several great community events coming up – and I’ll be doing my usual code singing, beer slinging routine. February 7 – South Florida Code Camp I’ll be presenting on writing Line of Business applications with Visual Studio 2008 and Silverlight 2. This presentation will be an end-to-end demo of data design/maintenance using VSTS Database Edition, modeling with ADO.NET Entity Framework, building a business layer and then UI with Silverlight 2. If you didn’t make Tampa Code Camp in December this is the show to see. February 17 – Sarasota DEV User’s Group I’ll be in Sarasota the night of the 17th presenting on Visual Studio Team System 2010. This will be the demo that I did at MDC (MSDN Developer Conference) in December, so if you missed the conference, PDC and still want to see some hands on VSTS 2010, I’ll see you in Sarasota! Looking forward to a great month, quarter and then year with the local developer communities.

If you've been reading my rants, raves or tips and tricks on this blog and want to meet up in person and let me know how far gone I really am, October will present a few opportunities to do so. October 11, I'll be at Tallahassee Code Camp. I'm staying the weekend so if you're planning to attend any of the after hour events I'll see you there! October 16, I'll be presenting at the Orlando .NET User's Group on Team Foundation Server 2008. This presentation will mostly focus on a feature walk-through as well as the awesome PM and guidance capabilities of TFS 2008! October 21, I'll be co-presenting with Nikita Polyakov at the Agile Tampa Group on Continuous Integration with Team Foundation Server 2008.

If you missed the show then, there's lots of great speakers at the SQL Saturday event! October 27-30, I'll be attending Microsoft PDC. If you're attending and want to meet up, let me know!Looks like it'll be a busy month -- how exciting! Technorati Tags: Community Events,TFS,LINQ
