    April 01, 2009 Share
    If you are looking for a way to get up to speed on the latest technology, you should consider the devLink Technical Conference (www.devlink.net).  This event has been around since 2006, bringing hundreds of people the chance to learn and grow.  This is a full three day conference featuring industry experts talking about a variety of relevant topics for developers, architects, database administrators and even project managers.  You might think an event like this would cost $1000 or more, but you would be wrong.  As a matter of fact, the most amazing thing about devLink is the price.  At $100 a...

    Pictures from the Road

    November 26, 2008 Share
    Conference season has been in full swing for the past couple of months, and I must say I'm glad things are settling down so I can get back into my normal routine. All this traveling has been fun - especially the opportunities to meet Telerik customers and many great members of the .NET community - but I'm ready to see the end of airports and conference halls for a few months. Those of you who travel to all the conferences and speak for a living, I have a newfound respect for you! One of the cool things that I've brought home...

    HDC Follow-Up

    October 02, 2008 Share
    I just arrived back home from the Heartland Developer's Conference in Minneapolis, MN. Besides a stomach bug I caught on day two and the near-death experience on the flight home, I had a great time. HDC was packed with 30 sessions over two days and was attended by more than 200 developers, most of whom were locals. There were a lot of great talks and it was fun to rub shoulders with the .NET developers of the Twin Cities. I also really enjoyed meeting some great Telerik customers and hearing all the things you are doing with our controls. All-in-all, I'd...

    September 26, 2008 Share
    This Monday and Tuesday I'll be in Minneapolis at the Heartland Developer's Conference. There are 30 sessions planned over two days, and it is sure to be a huge success. If you haven't already signed up, you may be out of luck as it is a sold out show. For those of you coming, I invite you to visit one of my two talks. On Monday I'll be giving an introductory talk to Silverlight 2.0, where you'll hear about all the things you can expect from this new release. With Microsoft announcing a release candidate yesterday, you can bet the official release...
