  • 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!

Wait, what? OK, so it requires a little explanation… After speaking with several long time MVP’s who were (and, in many ...

  • End of year wrap up (2011)

    BLOG I'm currently in the planning stages to rebuild this site.  I've delayed doing this for a long time since I didn't want to "break links"; however, one reason why I don't contribute as much as I used to is the fact that I enjoy the comment interaction.  Thanks to blog spam, I had to disable anonymous ...

  • 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 ...

  • INETA

    Oh yeah, by the way, I'm now an INETA speaker. ;-) What does this really mean?  Well, if you'd like to get me to come out to your user group, all you need to do is put in a request to www.INETA.org and they'll help with the travel/hotel expenses and even pay for the pizza!  So here's a chance that you and I can meet face ...

  • Here's your chance to laugh your *ss off at me...

    The .NET Rocks road show was here in the Dallas/Fort Worth area a couple of days ago.  After the show, they did some interviews with the local crowd and I was hanging out with no real intention of being interviewed.  Of course, that didn't work out exactly that way and I did end up having to sit in front of the mic.  It ended up ...
