  • BASIC SIG (February 7th, 2017) - VB's ByRef/ByVal (VB's "it just works" approach to CLR ref) and "All About Nullables"

    Rough agenda: * Progress update: Website, Slack.NET... * Discuss ways that you can get involved, regardless of skill level. * ByVal and ByRef, what does this mean along with deeper dive of CLR ref and how VB takes this a step further. * "All About Nullables"  Dim a As Integer?... A question?  What does that mean? ...

  • (Re)Announcing BASICSIG!

    After visiting Microsoft for the Microsoft MVP Summit in November, I was a bit “beat down”.  I came to a somewhat difficult (and in my mind, somewhat shocking) realization.  VB is dead! Wait, what? OK, so it requires a little explanation… After speaking with several long time MVP’s who were (and, in many ...

  • San Diego ASP.NET SIG - May 19th, 6pm

    I'll be at the San Diego ASP.NET SIG on May 19th doing my LINQ in the Real World discussion.  For anyone that has been at my previous "presentations", you'll know that I prefer to have more of a discussion surrounding the topic than a lecture.  So if you're in the area and would like to help spark conversation, feel ...

  • Knee deep in ASP.NET (XboxFriends.com)

    I've just completed my round one work on XboxFriends.com moving to ASP.NET and bridging the gap between the WinForms world and the WebForms world.  I've still got a lot of TODO: items, but at least what's up there now looks more like a semi-professional site than the two hurried together pretty much static pages that were there.

  • XboxFriends and ASP.NET vs. WinForms

    Spent the weekend trudging through ASP.NET working on bringing some of the features of the XboxFriends desktop application to the browser.  Currently there are only two people using the new version of the software [don't ask, it's not ready just yet ;-)] to help populate the server with some useful data.  Now that this data exists, I'm ...

  • I love global community...

    I just went live the bannergen... had someone contact me from who resides in Australia via IM about the images not being able to be saved in .gif or .jpg respectively.  Had yet another person take a look at it (who knows a lot more about ASP.NET than I do and usually stays up as ridiculously late as I do) and offered a couple of ...

  • Web-based Gamertag/MSN Banner image generator...

    I've just completed the first pass at a small web-based application that will allow you to select a banner style and enter in either your gamertag or instant messenger email address and have a generated image returned that you can 'save as' for use on your site.  (This was done on purpose so that people wouldn't just pass in a URL and cause ...
