    MADExpo 2012

    It's taken me a bit longer to get to this post than I'd anticipated, but I wanted to share some info on the Mid-Atlantic Developer Expo, which wrapped it's second iteration at the end of June. As with the first MADExpo in 2011, it was a fun event, combining software from a wide variety of platforms (from Windows 8 to iOS, from Perl to Ruby), with a healthy dose of hardware hacking and demos, along with a program for kids. more

    Mini Gadgeteer Game Console on a Wii Controller

    Valentin Ivanov (aka Architect on the TinyCLR Forums) just posted one of the more awesome projects I've seen for .NET Gadgeteer. He's built a mini game console using a repurposed Wii controller, plugged into his custom Chucky module, to control a ported version Pac-Man (he's also working on a port of Space Invaders). This is just the kind of project that I think makes Gadgeteer so awesome. more

So I, Steve Bodnar, Steve Presley, Kevin Griffin, Sara Faatz. Kevin Hazzard, Pete Brown, Rich Dudley, and a team of volunteers planned and executed the first event last summer. more

    MADExpo Additional Thanks

    I realized this evening that in my MADExpo wrap-up post, I left out some pretty critical players. For those of you who aren't aware, the team I work on at Microsoft is unusual, in that I and my fellow Developer Evangelists do not work in Redmond, nor do we all work in an office together. We live and work in the local communities that we cover, so we don't get to see one another in person all that often. more
