I need to just make time to blog. I’m finding that I am getting behind, further and further, as the bleeding edge of technology pulls out ahead of me. [sarcasm]Keeping up to date is hard.[/sarcasm].
I am working on a few things to try to get myself back up to speed, beyond just the on-going procrastination over Microsoft .Net 2.0 certification. Last month, I attended Jay Wren’s talk on IoC with Castle at the Ann Arbor .Net Developers Group. Though we’ve been using Castle within our LMS for a few months now, patterns is definitely one of my weak points in developer-land, so I did pick up a few concepts on Dependency Injection. It was a great talk, and I got some swag!
Last week it was back to AADND for Michael Wood’s talk on Windows Workflow Foundation. I haven’t had much any exposure to Windows Workflow Foundation other than to not call it WWF. This stuff blows me away, and makes me even more jealous that we haven’t converted the LMS out of .Net 1.1. I wish I could have made it to the GANG meeting tonight on WF, just to learn more.
Tomorrow is another meeting, and another “Geek Fest” as my wife so lovingly refers to it as. Heading west to MSU for GLUG’s meeting on C# 3.0 by Bill Wagner. There’s going to be a bit on Code Rush, too (I love CodeRush!). Maybe I’ll win more swag!
