My friend Caleb Jenkins of Improving Enteprises spoke at the North Dallas .NET Users Group last night about Silverlight 2.0 databindings, styles and templates. Caleb is a fun, energetic speaker, the kind of guy you want to have on your team or have a beer with. He’s definitely gungho over Silverlight, but I’m still not getting very warm to it.
To set the record straight, I’m going to expand my .NET demo project into a full demo site so you can see what I’m talking about. I’ll publish the URL when I’ve pushed some code.
I toss out my congratulations to Caleb on his diet. He’s lost 16lbs in only three weeks and it has motivated him to blog about it. He’s even going to have a contest to give away an MSDN subscription tied to weight-loss, although I think he should just give it to me for mentioning him in my blog 😉
Also, I haven’t mentioned Improving Enterprises before, but I should. They merit a blog post of their own, but for now I can simply say they are the best small technology consulting company in the DFW area. I do not know of any other organization with such a concentration of A-list talent and would highly recommend them to any organization that actually needs to get something done.
