JaxDug is doing something different this year having all sponsorship proceeds benefiting Wolfson’s Children Hospital. In addition to the sponsorship surplus going to Wolfson’s, there will also be a silent auction at the after-party at Sneakers Sports Grille.

There is a great session lineup with eight tracks having five hour-long sessions in each track. I’ll be presenting one session on Transactional WCF Services. It’s guaranteed to be a good geeky time, and I hope it will have record attendance this year.

I record only a few shows on my DVR.  While fast-forwarding through commercials during last night’s Battlestar Galactica, I saw a familiar image and had to rewind.  Ahhh… and then it appeared as a voice said “Tonight’s episode is brought to you by Microsoft Visual Studio 2005.”  Seeing that made me feel twice as dorky for watching that show.

The 2006 Jacksonville Code Camp was great. I spent the whole day in the Code Countdown room cranking our code for a worthy cause. Shawn Weisfeld, David Silverlight and I wrote a web app from scratch with ASP.NET for a non-profit organization in Pennsylvania. I’m happy that I was able to participate in the first Code Countdown, and help a non-profit organization. You can volunteer to help out in a similar way by checking out David Silverlight’s site, www.nonprofitways.com.
