Widbey Blast - Fort Collins Colorado - October 3rd

I will be up in Fort Collins, Colorado on October 3rd speaking at Widbey Blast which is sure to be a full day of good stuff all for free!  Last I heard it was filling up so if you want to go I would hury up and get registered!

There are two tracks - a fundamentals and an advanced track.  I’m doing the ASP.NET talk in the advanced track - so if your going and have specific things you want to hear about - drop me an email or a comment! I will be in good company that day with Don Kiely, Keith Brown, Kathleen Dollard, Doug Gregory and Tim Colton. 

You can find out more info and register for the event here Widbey Blast Web Site

Looks like a busy week coming up, 2 days of giving a training event in Denver, MVP Summit in Redmond and back to Fort Collins for this event.  Come to think of it this last month has kind of been like that!

VS2005 Template Parameters

One of the cool features of Visual Studio is the ability to do project and item templates.  Prior to these it used to be a real pain to package up your best practices. 

Scott G recently posted on using them with ASP.NET you can find that here

Buried in one of his comments is the link to this MSDN page that has a wealth of information on the parameters that are exposed for use on the template pages.

Using the template capability is a great way to promote consistency across your team.
