Uncle Kirk comes to visit
Kirk Allen Evans came to Knoxville to talk to the Knoxville .NET User Group on 3/20. Kirk did a really good job. I thought that Kirk did a really good job of explaining the objects, when to use which object, and the performance issues associated with each object. That is something that not a lot of folks do and there is very little support in most documenation. Most people and documentation just throw the info out there like a firehose gushing out water and it is the reader / listeners responsibility to understand the performance issues associated with any objects. Throughout his talk, Kirk kept bringing up performance and memory issues associated with different objects and the places where each object would be useful. The bottom line is that Kirk knows his shit when it comes to XML and did a really good job on his presentation.
