Presenting Expression for Developers on a European ReMix Tour

August 10, 2009 3 comments

The next few months will be full of conference visits and presentations. I’m excited to say that during the last week of September into October I will be on the Western European ReMix Tour presenting an Expression for Developers session.  The tour includes stops in Brussels, Helsinki, Vienna and Lisbon.  I’ll be presenting during the day and flying at night to the next location. Although very quick, and certainly not enough time to explore the cities, I’m really looking forward to it.

Others on the tour also include Brad Abrams (CLR, .NET RIA Services rockstar) and Arturo Toledo (Expression Studio rockstar) And these are free events, so sign up now before they run out of seats!

Due to the timing of the tour, I will not be returning to Seattle right away. Instead, I’ll spend a few days down in Los Angeles for the Adobe MAX conference.  It should be interesting to check out the new bigger and better LA-edition of the event.

Then in November, the big party – PDC 2009!

Registrations are open and the early bird discount is $500 off.  They’ve also posted the Sessions and Speakers list. If you have a chance, attend the Getting the most out of Silverlight 3 with the Griffs workshop. Sounds like a fun and informative time.

That’s it for the busy fall schedule.  If you’re at one of these events, feel free to say “hi”. I’m always happy to meet one of my “tens” of readers 🙂

Project Rosetta turns into a MIX09 workshop

December 4, 2008 Comments off

I’m excited to say that the spirit of the Project “Rosetta Stone” Tutorials, which is “using what you know” has become a MIX09 workshop.

The workshop is entitled “Shio o Totte: Using What You Know” and the description is as follows:

Have you just started working on your first Silverlight project and wondering how it compares to Flash? Are you trying to figure out how to take your assets from Photoshop or Illustrator and turn them into XAML? And what’s really the difference between ActionScript and C#? This workshop is going to cover all of those topics and more. The goal is for you as an experienced web developer or designer to learn how to use your skills and toolset in the world of XAML, Silverlight and WPF.

A MIX Workshop is a half day session given before the conference.  That means I have three and a half hours to fill with content!  I’m not anticipating it being a problem, though, since there are many cool tools and useful things you can do with them to build Silverlight and WPF apps.

Look for new content on the Project Rosetta as a build up towards the Workshop, we may even have a few guest authors show up there again.

I want to give a quick shout out to my other “Advanced Tools and Processes Workshop” Track brothers, Robby Ingebretsen and Jaime Rodriguez, who will be giving the “Hiking Mt. Avalon” session.

Hope to see you at MIX09!
