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?
Tomorrow: TECHbash 2007 Is Here!
Tomorrow, .NET Valley will host TECHbash 2007 at Luzerne County Community College. So far, we have over 150 registered for the event. We anticipate that by the end of the day, we’ll be nearing 180. If you’re anywhere near Northeastern Pennsylvania tomorrow, you’ll definitely want to stop by. For the developer community, we have a SharePoint 2007 talk by Rachel Appel, a Real World AJAX and Preview to Silverlight talk by me, and a WPF deep dive talk by Ambrose Little and Ed Blankenship from Infragistics. We’ll also have some great IT Pro talks including Windows Server 2008, Vista, and IP Telephony. Swag? We’ve got it — and you’ll want it. The first 120 registered attendees that sign-in tomorrow will receive a free SWAGbag containing free mags from MSDN, CoDe Magazine, and ASP.NET Pro. We’ll be handing out official “TECHbash 2007” t-shirts and .NET Valley pens. CACert will be on hand to provide security certificates and points towards certificates. Plus, we’ve got food. When was the last time you attended a conference and had Starbucks coffee? That’s right, Dickson City Starbucks has donated coffee for our event.Read More

Internet in Automobiles?
Yes its true. Many companies such as Ford are coming out with web enabled products. In fact, Ford’s product will run Windows Auto. However, this product takes the cake: http://www.autonetmobile.com/wp/service. AutoNet Mobile allows multiple devices to be connected. Therefore, I can have my XBox in my SUV as well as my laptop and cell phone. All three will be online. How cool is that?Read More

Our Little One Shows Up
I’ve been offline a lot lately preparing the arrival of our little one. Arianna Theresa was born on April 20th at 4:54pm. She was 8lbs 5oz and 21 1/2 inches long. Both mom and baby are doing just fine. I’ll be offline for the remainder of the week but figured I’d post a quick picture at http://www.jasongaylord.com/photos/Details.aspx?AlbumID=185&Page=0.
