Charlotte - Atlas UG talk


Charlotte was great yesterday. It was my first official talk as a member of the Ineta Speaker's Bureau. Bill Jones, Jr, the UG leader there, told me to expect about 75, he produced 104 by my count, and I am not sure that I got everyone either. I talked for way too long, as usual, but I think everyone really enjoyed it. There were a lot of really good questions. I got back a bit after two last night.


Atlas talk in Charlotte on Tuesday 7/25

I will be speaking at the Enterprise Developer's Guild in Charlotte, NC on Tuesday 7/25.  I will be speaking on Microsoft Atlas.  My files are available here.

I'm really looking forward to it.  It's my first official talk as a member of the Ineta Speaker's Bureau.  I'm going to meet up with Scott Forsyth before hand an interview him for the ASP.NET Podcast.

At the talk, I will have some of the world famous ASP.NET Podcast tshirts as well as books on .NET 2.0 for door prizes.

Microsoft goes public with Zune 

After trying for years to compete with the iPod through an array of partners, Microsoft confirmed Friday that it plans to directly go after Apple Computer with its own rival, Zune.

Confirming weeks of rumors, Microsoft said it will launch music software and players under the Zune brand, though the software maker left plenty unsaid in its confirmation.

"Today we confirmed a new music and entertainment project called Zune," Chris Stephenson, a general manager of marketing for the software maker, said in a statement. "Under the Zune brand, we will deliver a family of hardware and software products, the first of which will be available this year."
