    Do you use Telerik Tools? Please Vote in the DevProConnections Awards

    August 23, 2011 Share
    My employer, Telerik, is once again competing for a bevy awards in the DevProConnections competition.  We are competing in 20 (yes, I mean twenty) categories, so there’s many places where you can show your love! To find out more about the competition you can read this great post on Telerik Blogs. I was a consumer of Telerik tooling long before I became an employee, and am still amazed by the level of responsiveness that the product teams have to feedback that I illicit from the community (both in person and online).

    Another Great CodeStock

    Last week marked another great CodeStock, a two day developer conference in Knoxville, TN.  The organizer, Michael Neel, does a great job of juggling the speakers, schedule, and venue, and the show continues to get better and better!

    SQL Saturday Hawaii Recap

    SQL Saturday 72 (Honolulu) was a great success!  This event had three tracks – one for SQL (of course), one for .NET and one for more general topics.  Chris Eargle (@kodefuguru) and I came from the mainland and presented (between the two of us) 7 topics.
