INETA Academic - VISA Status
Check out this video of Jason and I at the MVP summit talking about Imagine Cup! Looks like I have been declined for a tourist VISA to Brazil and will most likely not have enough time to get a business VISA. Kind of sucks, but I will survive if I can't make it. They want a letter from a senior executive by tomorrow. I replied, “Yeah, that's going to happen, have you heard of Microsoft? They aren't small.” She said, “Well isn't there and executive in Kansas?” More laughter. ......

Imagine Cup Brazil 2004
A lot of buzz has been generated by the Imagine Cup in the past week, and it is getting exciting. I hope all the teams are well prepared and will give it their all to win this. I (along with Jason Beres) am lucky enough to be invited as a judge during this year's festivities, so I am really looking forward to the adventure. Hopefully, on a grand scale, Jason and I can mingle with the participants, after the judging, to discuss how our group (INETA Academic) can help them with next year's competition ......

Book Club again!
I am finally at a point to where I can re-org the book club again. The multiple books at one time idea, not so good. I can't possibly read that many books in a month, and I must be part of the interaction to get people started (since it's my club). So my latest choice of books is “Test-Driven Development in Microsoft .NET” by James W. Newkirk and Alexei A. Vorontsov. This will be the topic of this weeks .NET Rocks Show as well when my manager is interviewed. How does this book sound ......

DevEssentials is over, good show
After the show, I have a new respect for the passion of FoxPro developers. During a panel discussion, they show us .NET panelist that they have had features in their tools, that we are so excited about, for years. Most of the FoxPros took lots of shoots at us .NETers, but we just giggled with them (no one attacked back). My sessions were small, but fun. I was finally able to interact with the attendees at a personal level (yeah, really not many people in my session). Next year I hope they invite ......

XML DevCon is announced

Yeahhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!  I am really looking forward to this one.  I was not able to attend this show last year due to FNIS not letting me go (and laying me off 3 days later), but this year, I am going to try everything to get to go.

Sitting at DevEssentials in Kansas City
Very cool stuff here.  Lots of good speakers, great sessions, and good attendance for a conference in Kansas City.  I have a Microsoft Technology Panel that I will be on tonight if you are here and 2 sessions tomorrow.  Now I need to go find some more new co-workers to introduce myself too.

It's Official
Recently, John Alexander, from Vision Data Solutions has been recruiting me for his .NET Practice team. Well this past weekend I accepted the offer and will be starting on June 21st. This is great news for me, even though I will miss the individuals at PRL. It was a great team to work on, but the excitement generated by the VDSI team is too much to pass up. Being the only development-oriented MVP in the Kansas City area working with the RD for this area, I can see great things coming out of the building. ......
