Hello, I'm Jason
I live with my family in the rolling hills of Northeastern Pennsylvania. I'm a web developer by trade, but have broad experience in various business areas. Want to know more about me?
Last week I went to NYC to see the .NET Roadshow. Rob did an awesome job of presenting the information. The presentation was nice to see because it covered beginner to expert level material. I know there is only one more advertised Roadshow left, but I heard a rumor that more events may be planned in the upcoming months.Read More
I am creating a new educational website that will allow students to sign-in and get specific information. I wanted some feedback from those of you who had used Microsoft Passport services. Is it worth setting up to support both MS Passport and custom authentication? Is it a hassle? Is it expensive monetarily? Is it expensive on your server? Let me know your opinions!Read More
I’ve been mighty quiet lately absorbing the winter atmosphere and enjoying teaching .NET at a local community college. Within the next year, there will be at least 3 more .NET classes beginning. If you are in the Eastern PA region and would like more info, give me a shout. Otherwise, I might see some of you tomorrow night at the .NET Road Show in New York City.Read More
I thought I’d post and ask if anyone remembers those old ERwin diagrams. These days, there are numerous tools to perform data modeling. However, 5 years ago, there were only a few. I found a CD the other day with old ERwin documents that I needed restored. With the help of Computer Associates (ca.com), I was able to open my old ERwin 2.29 files in ERwin 3.52, a special download available by contacting CA support. They have to be contacted to obtain the proper key. Then I could download the new 4.14 version and update those docs. Now I’ve got my docs. So, if anyone has some old docs they need converted, hopefully CA can help!Read More
I just wanted to let individuals in the Philly area know of an event tonight. It’s called the Philly FUNNFest. The event includes many non-profit organizations in the area. At the Northeast Pennsylvania FUNNFest this year, my UG was introduced. So, there may be some good information at the event. The cost is $30 and a free Philadelphia Phillies ticket is given to each attendee. The main website for FUNN is http://www.funn.org. As you may already know, I do some of the web work for all the FUNN organizations.Read More
Surprisingly, week 1 is already here and gone. Overall it has been a very simple week. The ClassKnowledge app is starting to take some shape and the class will be able to fully access it by this coming Monday’s class. The app is similar to a Linux-based class management software called Moodle. I hope to clean it up and release beta 1 by Christmas.Read More
