Last year this conference sold out fast, so don't delay if you are thinking about attending. We will have more details about the conference as it gets closer, but here ......

Provider Model Presentation Materials
Last night I presented "The Provider Model" at the .NET User Group of Kansas City and it seemed to go over pretty well. Presenting a topic like the Provider Model is difficult in a user group scenerio because everyone comes from different backgrounds and for some, it might be their first presentation focused on architecture. If you want the presentation and samples, you can download here ......

Great Resource - Provider Toolkit
After my post announcing my Provider Model presentation in Kansas City, ScottGu commented about the ASP.NET Developer Center's Provider Toolkit available on MSDN. This is an excellent resource to get more information about Providers and examples for ASP.NET. If you are dabbling in ASP.NET 2.0, this is definitely a page to bookmark. Two great articles on Extending Providers: Understanding and Extending the Site Navigation System in ASP.NET 2.0 Custom Site Map Providers in ASP.NET 2.0 ......

On April 25th, I will be presenting "The Provider Model and You" at the Kansas City .NET User Group.

If your in the area, I hope you can make it ......

FrontPage is dead at the end of 2006

It looks like Microsoft will discontinue FrontPage at the end of the year with the release of other tools for SharePoint 2007 development/maintenance. It has been a pain to need this tool installed to edit SharePoint so I am glad to hear this news.

Newsgroup for Kansas City .NET User Group Members

We are going to try something new with the .NET User Group in Kansas City. We want to see how the local community will be assisted with a local-only newsgroup for members. With this, I have started a newsgroup @ Google Groups for the User Group. If you are local to Kansas City, come join and help us test this theory out.
