Christian Coté invited me and Edwin to speak at the http://www.dotnetmontreal.com/dnn/ user group. We drive down and presented our sessions. It has been years since I presented to my old UG in Montreal.  It was fun to see old UG members. I miss that very dynamic community. I had very good questions during my session.  I hope I can come back this fall. Thank you for having me in Montreal.

I spend one night in Montreal (March 10th) Because on March 11th I was speaking 2 sessions (MS sync framework, Report Server SSRS R2) at the PHP conference Confoo.ca. At night we had a cocktail reception for the Sponsor. I met many guys from Microsoft. What was the most fun for me at this event was the networking. I was very impress with Vance Lucas which I met at lunch. Vance was speaking about a cross platform open source for iPhone and Android call Titanium. This X-Platform open source will let you code in java script and compile it for the native target OS.

Now DevTeach announced  3 tracks on Mobile. A total of 17 sessions on mobile will be presented. Check it out.



A SQL Server XML talks in Vancouver…

by Jean-Rene Roy 1. March 2011 10:41

DBA’s are normally reluctant to accept XML in their database and developers are not aware of all the possibilities in XML in SQL Server. For this reason I design a session call XML in SQL Server! Why bother? I present this session with the point of view of the DBA, Developers and the software architect. It’s fun because someone asks a question, I answer three ways.  It will be presented in Vancouver March 2nd. This is a most see.   You can download the code with this link.
