Well the registration for the third Alabama .NET Code Camp is now open!  Each Code Camp here in Alabama has been larger than the last.  This appears to be no exception!  This is shaping up to be the largest code camp yet in Alabama.

The 3rd Alabama .NET Code Camp will be held in Montgomery, Alabama at Auburn University Montgomery.  It will be on October 28th.  Registration will be from 7:00AM to 8:00AM.  We will kick things off with a keynote from the one and only Joe Healy (If you don't know Joe, you should!) and Bruce Thomas of Simplify.  Bruce was the lead organizer on this one and Bruce always does a great job so I know this is going to be a grade A Code Camp.

I have been on the planning committees for the Alabama Code Camps.  The committee is made up of a group of absolutely terrific and dedicated individuals.  I am proud to work with them!  As always we have some great speakers lined up and some terrific presentations.  We have presentations currently lined up on ASP.NET, Windows Mobile, SQL Server, Visual Studio, Vista and .NET 3.0, and lots more!  I will be doing some presentations on Windows Presentation Foundation (formerly Avalon).  And Jeff Barnes will be doing some presentations on Windows Communication Foundation (formerly Indigo).  Check out the list of sessions for more information.

I anticipate that it will fill up fast so get on out to the site and register today!  I will see you there!

Well I have successfully upgraded to version 1.9 of dasBlog. I didn't have any problems. For anyone that is interested, the process of upgrading from 1.8 to 1.9 is very straightforward. According to the Scott Hanselman's upgrade note, you should be able to merge any of your own changes into the web.config, backup any custom themes, and overwrite most of the other files.

The process I followed was as follows:
1. merged my changes into the web.config
2. merged my changes and settings into the appropriate files in the SiteConfig subdirectory.
3. I left my content directory and my logs directory alone but copied over everything else as though it were a new install.
4. Once I had everything copied, I browsed to the site, logged in, and changed the administrator password (since in 1.9 it is encrypted and thus it is probably not advisable to change it directly in the config file).

There you have it. Pretty simple. I had no problems and am looking forward to utilizing some of the new features.  Oh and BTW, I am posting this entry from Live Writer so there are no issues with Live Writer and 1.9!

Happy Upgrading!
