In February I will be attend two Microsoft conferences, TechReady and MSSU, in Seattle and Redmond.
The first is the internal TechEd. I am really looking forward to the opportunity to hear a lot of great session about all the cool technology.
The second, MSSU, is a week of Microsoft 1-0-1, brain washing, indoctrination, call it what you want. I am going to learn to do it “The Microsoft Way”.
An added benefit will be, that I get go spend a little time with my sister, brother-in-law and nephew.
I will be attending the one day Community Connection II on .NET best practices taking place in Malmø, Sweden on November 26.
Say “hello” if you happen to attend as well.
My good friend Mark is going to speak on DI in Malmø on 18 November. This is a SWENUG event. It is really great that the community is working across the pond so xNUG members from Denmark can go visit and vise versa.
As always I look forward to hearing Mark speak as he is one of the most accomplished presenters around.
Wednesday 8 December I will be attending a “go home meeting” featuring the Scrum expert Mike Cohn. Really looking forward to it, as Mr. Cohn is one of the big names in this racket.
From his own description:
One of the challenges of agile is coming to grips with the role of leaders and managers of self-organizing teams. Many go to the extreme of refusing to exert any influence on their teams at all. Others retain too much of a command-and-control style. Leading a self-organizing team can be a fine line.
In this session you will learn the proper ways to influence the path taken by a team to solving the problems given to it. You will learn how to become comfortable in this role. You’ll understand why influencing a self-organizing team is neither sneaky nor inappropriate but is necessary.
Going to attend Community Day 2010 at Keddelhallen on May 27.
Not much on the web site yet, but I’m sure Mr. Frost is working hard to fill in the blanks
I have signed up for the CNUG Event TDD for øvede on 15 April.
The speaker is again my friend Mark. Missed the one he did on MEF back in January, so I do hope I’ll make it this time around.
Come over and say ‘hello’ if you happen to attend as well.
I have signed up for the MS Tech Talk event 20 January. My good friend Mark will do the talking about MEF and as he is always worth listening to, I would recommend all to sign up.
Remember, that it is free!
