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. Has you know, Right now we are leaving the Mobile revolution where everyone what an app on their smart phone. Well I ask Vance to present is session in Montreal at DevTeach. Now DevTeach announced 3 tracks on Mobile. A total of 17 sessions on mobile will be presented. Check it out.

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.
