Attending Campus Crusade's Midsouth Conference...

It's the first time I have ever attended a Christian conference where twitter was being used so much during the conference. Usually I don't equate twitter with a Christian conference, but Campus Crusade's midsouth conference is certainly an exception. From the beginning of the conference to the end, participants were tweeting all kind of stuff all the time.

Yep, it was bound to happen. Curiosity set in and I looked to see how much this new Windows 7 thang is running. $29.95 ain't too bad. But, as we all know, that's just the beginning. The first gram is free. You and I both know that installing a new release leads to more serious drugs. I mean, apps. I mean...you know what I mean.



Anyhoo, last time I worked with Visual Studio it was pretty impressive. Visual Studio 2010 is out in beta,… Continue

Currently the project is in Java,… Continue

Article: Why You Should Care About Software Architecture

Software development teams have resisted "big upfront designs" in favor of architectural designs emerging from self-organizing teams, which can lead to a mindset that software architecture is not really that important. Greater awareness of the implicit decisions they are making, and forcing these decisions to be made explicitly, can help development teams make better, more informed decisions.
