Leaning at the Tape...a B.S. in Software Engineering squeezed into 11 short years...

Thanks Tomas, for noticing my MSN Messenger name had been updated to reflect my College Graduation tonight!  I'm getting a B.S. in Software Engineering from OIT and it only took 11 years.  The ceremony is at OIT in Portland on 185th and Walker at 7pm.  I'm one of the students who has been asked to say a few words - which is nice since I've "outlived" four department heads.  Even more exciting is that I've joined the staff as an adjunct to teach C# this fall, one of only two professors without Master's Degrees. 

This has been an amazing week with TechEd, Graduation, and this teaching opportunity all at once.  Thanks to everyone who has supported me this past year.

I had a BLAST at TechEd this year.  Thanks to everyone who made my session DEV389 - Learning to Love WSDL a standing-room-only session!  A lot of great comments, a lot of good discussion.

If you're looking for code samples, the slides, snippets, links, etc look at my earlier post on Web Services Tools from the Windows Server 2003 Launch and the MyMsEvents site.

Thanks to everyone and see you at PDC!

It's the quiet hours before my session...the demos are ready, the laptop is stable (knock on wood) and I'm ready to jump in...it's Learning to Love WSDL - DEV389 at 1:30 in C147/C148/C154 - the only session with "love" in the title.  Wish me luck!

Also, kudos to Kate Gregory for having the highest rated session at TechEd so far!

TechEd 2003: Dallas : Day 1 - The Afterparty

Day 1 of TechEd is really just the Afterparty of the Sunday events.  We hung out at the Circle R ranch where I clearly dominated on the mechanical bull.  I also was crushed in Ping Pong by Chris Goldfarb (PDX INETA), sang a horrible version of Under the Boardwalk with Jonathan Zuck, who it turns out, is a fantastic baritone and while I assumed it was WE who sucked, it was in fact I who sucked. 

Software Legend Juval Lowy's cardboard cutout, that mysteriously absconded (clearly under its own locomotive power) from the Book Mall also put in an appearance on stage at the Influencer's Party.  Who knows where flat Juval will appear next?

Met lots of cool INETA people - User Group leaders from Seattle, Bay.NET, Pakistan and beyond!  Got a picture of me on a giant steer (cause who doesn't want a picture of that) and ate more meat that I really should have. 

Hung out manning the Advanced Web Services booth at Microsoft this afternoon from noon to 3 and answered questions around WSE and WSDL and I pimped my Weds 1:30pm DEV389 - Learning to Love WSDL session shamelessly.

I'm currently proctoring labs down in C141 and hanging with Kent Sharkey and Jas Sandhu.  Kent is teasing me for blogging wirelessly and I'm teasing him for not having updated his blogg in 8 days!

Sitting in a great pre-meeting right now.  Just heard Steve Elston speak on Patterns and Practices, now we're listening to Don Box talk about Messaging in Windows and his thoughts about .NET Remoting and XML Web Services and the WSE (Web Services Enhancements) 2.0.
