Come join me for a casual conversation at my next “Office Hours” event.
What is Office Hours? This is an opportunity to meet with a Microsoft Developer Evangelist to discuss topics on your mind. That’s right, you own the agenda. Typically located at a coffee shop, Office Hours provides a neutral location to speak freely and ask questions that are easier to do on a one-on-one basis. I hope you can join me for a chat over coffee at my next Office Hours event!
Upcoming Office Hours
Phoenix, AZ : Wednesday September 14th, 3pm – 5pm, Starbucks at Park Central Mall

I created a daily edition of a virtual paper via paper.li just a few days ago. I created a twitter list of developers in the Desert Mountain region (AZ, CO, NM, NV, UT) and have the paper generated from tweets from those folks. I also added #html5 and #css3 tags in the mix for content. The result has exceeded my expectations!
So grab a cup of your favorite beverage, sit back, and enjoy the paper!
I presented on HTML5 & CSS3 with Scott Stanfield today in Silicon Valley. Presenting with Scott was a blast! I was very entertained and the audience (including those watching in overflow room via streaming video) appeared to enjoy the sessions as well. One personal favorite was a link Scott provided about the future of HTML (30 second video at bottom of page is worth watching).
One question that was asked a lot was: “Where can we get a list of all the resources presented today?” As promised, this is the list you are looking for:

My session at Tech-Ed in Atlanta this year is all about Web Deployment. For those who attended, here is a listing of resources you may find very helpful!
While chatting with Scott Cate yesterday about Windows Phone 7, he showed me how he shares his SIM among different phones. For example, he took out the SIM from his Samsung Focus, and put it in his iPhone. He travels with multiple phones because he develops for multiple platforms (though it is obvious he really loves to develop for WP7!).
I told him I was waiting for the HTC HD7S to be released by AT&T before I switched from using my iPhone and a Samsung prototype WP7. Due to his community involvement with WP7, he had an extra Samsung Focus in his possession that he deemed the “community” phone. He is letting me borrow it so I can make a fair comparison of it and the HD7S. Scott didn’t hesitate a second to make that offer, and I thought he deserved a little write up for what he did. Thanks Scott!
