MVP Style Module Development - Deep Dive
Q. How long now have you been part of the DotNetNuke community?
A. Since early 2004 - I have been working directly on the core since Sept of that same year.
Q. Any specific sights, shows, or events that you plan to make time for while in Las Vegas this fall?

A. Commodore 64
Q. Why are you looking forward to DotNetNuke Connections '10?

Q. Why should people consider attending your session?
A. Module Development is a big part of what our Community is all about. In my session I will be taking a deep-dive into a new pattern that developers can use to produce quality modules by developing with testability in mind.
Q. When you’re not presenting, which session at DotNetNuke Connections are you most interested in attending?
A. I usually focus on Module Development topics
Q. Which sessions in the concurrent tracks at DevConnections you're particularly interested in attending?
A. I usually try and attend sessions in the ASP.NET track but this year I am particularly interested in the new Windows Phone 7 track and I will probably attend many of those sessions.

A. I specialize in core development and architecture.
