    New Windows 8 How-Do-I Videos Released

    I'm pleased to announce that a new series of short videos, called "How Do I?" created by your local Microsoft Technical Evangelists has been posted to Channel 9. Contributors include Jeff Barnes, Jeremy Foster, David Isbitski, and of course yours truly. Running between 8 and 15 minutes, these videos are intended to give you solid technical information on a specific topic in Windows 8 development, with no fluff, plenty of code examples, and kept short enough that you can easily fit them into your busy schedule. more

    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
