MDSM – Getting Kinect-ed

The next Microsoft Developers of Southwest Michigan user’s group meeting is Tuesday, September 20, featuring yours truly.  I’ll be walking through the Kinect target-tracking application that my colleagues at Biggs put together over several weeks.  Check out the meeting details page, and send us an email at to let us know you’re coming. 

Hope to see you there!

Setting the Bar too high

Up until this morning, I had been planning to attend the Grand Rapids Bar Camp tomorrow night and Saturday.  With a good deal of regret, I’ve decided to skip it.  I have two projects with similar un-budge-able deadlines, and neither is quite finished.  I will just have to try again next year.

Grand Rapids BarCamp

Join me at the 5th Annual Grand Rapids Bar Camp, August 18-19, in Grand Rapids, Michigan.  Provided I can generate enough interest in it (read the rules of BarCamp), I’ll be giving my talk “Start a Project Focused on Deployment”.  Hope to see you there!

How to start a new project – redux

I made a decision about a month ago to get back into speaking – not just at MDSM, but at other user groups and regional events. To kick things off, I’m expanding a blog post I made back in March titled “How to start a project” into a presentation.  My first delivery will be at the June 24 MDSM meeting, here in Kalamazoo.

Please see the meeting post for RSVP instructions, and I hope to see you there!
