November Bartlesville .NET User Group Meeting
We had out November Bartlesville .NET User Group Meeting on 11/14/2008. It was an amazing meeting! We had 55 people in attendance. There were 48 developers and 7 recruiters. This was an amazing turnout. I was actually a bit nervous going into the meeting as only 25 people had RSVP'd. However, I knew with the reminders and the marketing I put out the weeks before the meeting that we would have a great turnout. And we did!! It was an amazing presentation by Raymond Lewallen on Behavior Driven Development. ......

Senior Developer in OKC Needed
Being a user group leader (Bartlesville .NET User Group) I get a lot of messages for recruiters looking for jobs. Given the current market situation I like to pass these on.

ASP.NET MVC in Action
Manning Publications Co. has some great books. Ever since I first heard that MVC was coming to ASP.NET I was extremely excited. I have always preferred the MVC pattern over the MVP pattern that ASP.NET used. Most of the information on MVC for ASP.NET is limited or not as in depth as I would like. I have created multiple MVC applications just by using Reflector to learn more about the runtimes. However, being a book junky, and one that really enjoys the early access program at Manning Publications ......

Mosso - Cloud Hosting
I recently updated my web hosting from MaximumASP to Mosso. This was primarily because MaximumASP does not allow MySQL on their virtual dedicated servers, and I cannot afford a full dedicated server. MaximumASP always provided great service, and I still use them for my websites that requires solutions such as Windows Sharepoint Services, or other packages that must be installed via Remote Desktop. However, for the majority of my sites I have moved them on to Mosso and I will not look back. Mosso ......

Visual Round Trip Analyzer! Awesome Tool!
I just read the MSDN article on the Visual Round Trip Analyzer. This tool is awesome for finding bottlenecks in your web applications. It also allows you to see where your expensive download points are. With this tool I discovered that if I put a parameter after my large javascripts, such as JQuery, I can set the content expiration in the headers for 1 year. Then any time I need to change the javascript file (also works with images, css, etc...) the browser will then treat the file as new and redownload ......
