I had the pleasure of attending on of Microsoft’s new “Developer Community Seminars” today. One of the nice things about being a developer in New England the last few years has been Russ Fustino and his “Russ’ Tool Shed” quarterly seminars.
When Microsoft moved Russ to Florida a month or so ago, I was afraid I had seen the last of the “tell it like it is” development seminars. Let’s face it, most of these seminars are “tell it like marketing says it is”.Â Â And while those marketing seminars might present a nice excuse to get away, they are almost always more noise than signal.
I’m happy to say my fears were completely unfounded. The presentation I say today, put on by Joe Stagner, was everything I hoped it would be. To say he “told it like it is” would just not do it justice.
Now ifÂ they could just get him into an orange hard-hat with a Carl Franklin song playing over the sound system… 🙂
