Officially Working for Pragmatic Works

Today is my first day meeting the team and getting a handle on everything Pragmatic does. My new role will focus on product development for all of Pragmatic's commercial software, and I looking forward to working with the team. I have always admired Brian Knight's ability to start something small and grow it into something big, and now I look forward to being a part of helping that something grow!

  1. We have some of the best speakers in Florida coming to talk for free!
  2. This is a community event which helps out Wolfson Children's Hospital.
  3. If you are a guy, girls will think you are cool because you go to codecamps. If you are a girl, well we are just happy to see girls at a codecamp.
  4. All of your friends will be there and if you do not have any friends you can meet one or two.
  5. Learning about new things is super cool.
  6. Codecamps are great places to take a date when you don't know where to go.
  7. Justin Beiber will not be there.
  8. 90% of the attendees will have seen "Cowboys and Aliens" and you can compare your thoughts and ideas on the movie.
  9. It is a great way to get away from your spouse and relax.

State Machine Workflow Hands on Labs

Cool, I did my first session ever without slides last Thursday at the Tallahassee, Fl. Usergroup. I am not sure this was entirely on purpose, but with preparing for our codecamp and managing our usergroup I really did not have time to prepare the slides. So the entire hour I focused on my demos and answering questions that people had about WF and state machine workflows. One thing I wanted to share is where to get some great hands on labs... Visit http://code.msdn.microsoft.com/Windows-Workflow-b4b808a8 and download the labs today!
