Experiences and Experiments in Programming

 Thursday, January 04, 2007

Registration is now open for Mix07.  If you weren't able to make it to Mix06, you don't want to miss it this year.  I attended Mix06 and walked away with some good information and a lot of things to look forward to.  Since then, I have been working heavily with WPF and exploring where it fits in to some of my current projects and near future projects.

I mentioned after Christmas that I had a lot of good stuff to move out into posts and a personal announcement to make.  Well I guess I can make the announcement now: My wife is expecting our 2nd child!  Over the last year or so, she has had a couple of miscarriages.  It has been hard on everyone.  So when we found out she was pregnant, we decided to just keep it under wraps until after the first trimester.  Well, we have made it this far and everything seems to be going ok.  Hopefully everything will continue as planned and middle of June will bring a healthy new family member.  Our daughter, who is 4, is already making big plans for baby brother or sister.  So if you read this post, keep your fingers crossed for us!

Well everyone has them, and some stick to them.  Hopefully I will be successful in sticking with my resolutions this year.  One of them is to more regularly post relevant blog entries on WPF and DotNetNuke (and maybe both together).  It is really funny.  I spend a tremendous amount of time working with these two technologies.  Whenever I think about blogging about something I find, I tend to decide to play a little more so that I have more info to post.  By the time I am ready to post, I have to go do something else.  It seems it is an endless cycle of "hey, I need to put this into a post...I'll do that right after I finish this".  Needless to say there is always a "finish this" and rarely a post!  I am going to dedicate some time each week to posting here and in forums.  It seems that is the only way to make it happen consistently.  There is always something at work requiring my time.  So I have relegated myself to the fact that if I put things off till I have time, they will never get done!  I have a lot of plans for this year both professionally and personally.

One of my personal goals is to spend less time at home in front of the computer and more time with my wife and daughter.  A very close friend of mine's wife was recently diagnosed with cancer.  She is just my age and, believe me, it makes you stop and think about what is important!  Technology, software, the web....they are not just my job but my hobby and sincere love.  So I am always working on the laptop.  I don't want to neglect my other loves!

I have been asked to present on WPF at the .NET University being hosted in Huntsville, Alabama by the Huntsville New Technology User Group (HUNTUG).  They will be having a .NET University there on January 8th and February 13th.  I enjoy going up to Huntsville and HUNTUG has a wonderful meeting facility.  It is always a pleasure to present there!
