Places to Go, People to See

Just a quick note to myself really.  I've done a lot of blogging recently about two Microsoft Events I attended, however I've realised something about those posts.  Whereas I had quantity, Nigel Parker had quality.  Whereas I typed everything I was learning, I didn't really interpret their meaning.  I intend doing that over the next couple of days.  In the meantime, here are the people I met:

Live Services Jump Start

  • Kitty Chiu from Wesfarmers Industrial and Safety.  Senior eBusiness Developer and fellow Christian.
  • Lloyd S Derbyshire from Zardoz Systems Limited.  Managing Director and fellow Kiwi in Oz.
  • Nigel Parker from Microsoft NZ.  UX Development Advisor and fellow Kiwi in Oz. 


  • Kevin Swain from gen-i.  Database Administrator from Auckland
  • Simon Green from MAF.  We shared photographer and video duties on the weekend.

Welcome to my technical blog. 

Here, I attempt to distill the Microsoft Certified Professional Developer knowledge I have accumulated since first qualifying MCP in 1996.  This blog started on 13 September 2007 as an off-shoot from my mixed up personal blog.  But it took a shot in the arm from Scott Hanselman's talk at TechEd New Zealand 08 "32 Ways To Make Your Blog Suck Less".
