I have been helping programmers in the SoCal area further their career for over 18 years
! I do this by running the San Diego .NET Developers group, teaching at UCSD (15 years), speaking at conferences (like Code Camp), writing/ releasing 4 books and more. As a Microsoft MVP, I represent SoCal developers each year when I go to Microsoft to help make .NET and Visual Studio better.
I do all of these activities because I love to help people and give back to the community. I do not make any money off of most of these activities and if I do, it's not much.
My current laptop is over 3 years old and is slowing down and has very little disk space left. It's now hampering my ability to prepare for class, conferences and even makes it hard to edit videos of my conference sessions for the web.
If I have made your career better in some way then I ask that you give what you can. I would greatly appreciate it. Anyone is welcome to contribute!Attention Musicians/ Bands
If you have liked or even used any photos that I have done for your band then please give so I can keep bringing you those great pics!
