LINQ resources

January 14, 2009

I have had the occassion to use a lot of LINQ to objects lately. I remembered there was a great resource for this, but couldn’t remember where that resource was. So, I’m posting it here now so I won’t lose it. I’ll update it as I find more linqs (okay bad pun, and I don’t care).

Non-profit information

January 13, 2009

Some guys from our local .NET User Group (FSDNUG) and I are going to be in Dallas later this week for the WeAreMicrosoft event. It looks to be a lot of fun, very rewarding and educational. That’s the trifecta of awesome, IMO. 

Last night, at the FSDNUG SQL SERVER 2008 launch party, Michael Paladino brought up that we are going to be using a CMS in our project at WAM. There wasn’t a lot of input on the matter (I not so secretly hope we go with Graffiti since there will be a little bit of training on it there). However, one of the members, Randy Friend, brought up a great resource for non-profit organizations, called TechSoup (http://techsoup.com/).  Evidently, for organizations that qualify, you can get great deals on hardware and software.  If you work with non-profits often enough, it might be worth your while to check it out.
