Leveraging Social Media - Social networking sites, such as LinkedIn, BrightKite, Facebook and Twitter are growing at an incredible rate. In this talk, we'll take a brief look at some various forms of social networking and build a Twitter client application using VB.NET, WPF and the Twitter API.
Chris Williams is a Technology Evangelist for Magenic. He is the founder of several .NET User Groups on the east coast, and most recently the Twin Cities XNA User Group and Twin Cities Developers Guild, both in Minneapolis, MN. He is a rabid blogger at BlogusMaximus.net, author of the very popular NINE Questions series and owner of the VB Community site www.ILoveVB.net. His most recent project is the Charity Fragathon, a fundraiser event for Children's Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota.
He's also a Visual Basic .NET MVP, MCT, MCSD (.NET) Early Adopter, MCAD, INETA Speaker, freelance game developer, occasional author, tech editor, conference speaker, vintage arcade game collector and INETA Community Champion. He also plays a pretty mean guitar in Rock Band.
Lastly, yes, the rumors are true, he loves Visual Basic so much he even named his dog VB.
