So were the female speakers really better than the male ones at DDD4?
I was reading Simon Middlemiss' blog post on his experience of the developer day talks, and it made me smile. In short he found that the three talks by the only three female speakers stood out to him better than the other 2 by the guys. I am just wondering whether the girls are beginning to get better at tech talk or whether they are finally getting the recognition they deserve! Either way it's all good! On my side I am slowly getting to feel more comfortable talking on technical subjects, but I ......

DDD4: A quick overview
Well I was at DDD4 and it was a fun day! There was a little last minute preperation the night before, just polishing off the slides and placing all the links in them. It's just a shame that the Microsoft internet let me down. I ended up talking for an entire hour about web 2.0 technologies for business rather than being able to show the full power of what you can do with them. All the same I think it went well under the circumstances, and I don't think I totally fluffed it. At least the feedback ......

TechEd Europe 2006 Day 2!
OK it's day 3 and I'm a little behind on the details for what went on at TechEd yesterday... so much to do and so little time. However this time I managed to escape for a bit and go to a few sessions. The first session that I attended was Anders Hejlsberg's session on .net 3.0, the session was totally over subscribed with an overflow room that had the presentation projected onto it. The scores from that particular session's feedback are the highest so far!!! (yes the speakers in the speakers lounge ......

TechEd Europe 2006... Day 1
OK so I am sat here in the speakers lounge at TechEd Europe 2006 and have been talking to all sorts of people from Microsofties to independent Consultants. I was chatting away to Mike Hall and we were saying that we should do some sort of little chat or question and answer session on mobility so if anyone has any burning questions that they would like Mike to try answering I will see what i can do... just post them here and we will go through them. The other thing is I have the access to all the ......

TechEd Europe and ITForum 2006
I'm off to TechEd Europe and ITForum 2006 in November and I'm wondering who else is off over there! From what I understand the two events have very different audiences, the geeks and the techies will be at TechEd and the IT professionals and architects will be at ITForum... Hmmm... so what is the difference between the ITPro and the Ubergeek? Surely they have the same aims? Who knows... maybe I will find out more when I am there! Look out for the girly geek dinners that are going there both weeks, ......

A new blog just for the girly geeks
It was pointed out to me that my "mobile blog" has a lot of "girl geek" stuff on it and is becoming interlaced... as such a friend suggested that I should have an additional blog just for the girl geek stuff. Well I sat and thought about it this evening and it does make a lot of sense. I am hoping that it won't stop as many people hearing about the girl geek stuff and this is my only concern with splitting them apart as 2 seperate blog sites. For now however the new site is Girly Geekdom and for ......
