What I've Been Up To Lately

Things have been quite busy with me lately and thus my post count has dropped significantly. Nope, I haven’t dropped off the earth. I have been working pretty hard on a few projects that I’ll hopefully be able to shed some light on soon. I gave an MVC/jQuery/IE8 talk recently at a Philly.NET Code Camp and posted a really basic app on CodePlex to support the talk. You can check it out at http://bizweb.codeplex.com. Otherwise, stay tuned!
