I don’t talk alot about my work here. Mostly I like to prattle on about the interesting changes happening in the UI/Rich Client world.
Indulge me for a few minutes while I talk about one of my jobs. I work as a trainer/consultant for Wintellect. Last fall Jeffrey Richter convinced me to join the Wintellect family. It’s been a great year so far and I’m enjoying the travel and intrigue. I teach a number of the Wintellect classes but I’m most excited about the WPF course. It’s my baby, I’m responsible for creating and teaching the Mastering Windows Presentation Foundation course.
What’s Wintellect doing at Mix07?

Wintellect Mix-It-Up Party
We’re (Wintellect) having a big pre-event dinner party on Sunday. It’s an invitation-only event otherwise I’d ask all my WPF buddies to come by for drinks. Wintellect, Burton Snowboards and Microsoft are all sponsoring the event and it looks like a fun evening.
I love WPF and Silverlight. You probably know that already if you’ve been reading my WpfWonderland blog for more than a couple days. I’m not the only Wintellectual to hop on the RIA train though.
Last week I was at the Devscovery Denver conference. Jeff Prosise had a number of sessions during the week covering ASP.NET, AJAX and Silverlight. I don’t have the exact quote, so I’ll have to paraphrase. During one of Jeff’s Silverlight sessions he said that he thought Silverlight is likely to be the “most significant web programming” tool to emerge from Microsoft this decade. and will have a major impact on anyone doing web development with Microsoft technologies.
