First day at the PDC#

Arrived yesterday (Sunday) in Los Angeles to hang out for the week at PDC.

Today PDC is still setting up, but I'm in a room for the whole day with 60+ other Regional Directors, taking a look at all kinds of cool upcoming technologies that I'm not allowed to talk about (yet).

Tonight at 6pm in room 150/151, Carl and I will be doing The 64 Bit Question, a .NET Rocks! Quiz show. The prize packages are huge, and we'll be grabbing contestants from the audience... but when the contestant gets the question wrong, we'll be turning to the audience for the answer and the audience member who answers the question will win the prize!

Hope to see you there!

Show Off at PDC 2005#

Just recording .NET Rocks this week and Carl and I had a chance to talk to Thomas Lewis and Mike Swanson about Show Off at PDC 2005.

The idea is to show videos of developers showing off their favorite bits of code. Some clever trick or idea that can be shown in under five minutes. The concept is cool, but what really stokes me is that its about the community, not about Microsoft.

Normally at the PDC you're watching Microsoft presenters showing off the future of Microsoft tools. But this is going to be the opposite - developers showing what they've done with Microsoft tools.

I'm encouraging Carl to "show off" this little tool he wrote for .NET Rocks. It takes the source version of the show and generates WMA, MP3, AAC in different quality modes, plus creates the split versions for folks who want it to fit on CD, and creates the torrent files for using BitTorrent. It saves a ton of time and is just the sort of thing I think would make a great five minute video.

If you've got something to submit, check out
