Update From OpenForce '07

Well OpenForce is almost over and I have to say that it has been a very good success in my opinion.  I will not take the time to cover everything that has happened in my time here, but I will direct you to Tom Kraak's blog over at Tom has been doing a great job with keeping up on the events of the conference.

I would like to say a little bit about the session that I presented with Philip Beadle.  I have to say that I thought our presentation was a great success and I appreciate all of the attendees that took the time to come listen to us.  There were a number of questions that were asked of me at the end of the session and I thought I would address them here, and also ask for some feedback.

First of all I would like to let everyone know that I am looking at setting up a series of DotNetNuke module development tutorials both in print form (here on this blog) and video form, that will be made available for download from this site.  Both of these offerings will be completed free of charge.  (Donations would be appreciated if you find something useful simply to help me with my rising bandwidth costs).

Secondly, I was asked by a few individuals if I would be interested in on-site or web-casting traning sessions to help with module development and other DNN topics.  This is something that I have been trying to analyze recently and I have decided that I will start offering this service.  If you are looking for some one-on-one training sessions either in-person or web based please send me an e-mail and we can discuss the pricing/availability.

 The last thing I want to brush up on is the recent offerings of an "SLA" program by the folks at DotNetNuke Corp, I know many comunity members noticed this anouncement a few weeks ago but I am sure that not many of us have checked this out.  I did some investigation today and found that ther SLA, is not all that encompassing (very limited contacts and nothing too special for response times) and is VERY expensive.  So my question to those regular readers of this blog, is there an interest in a DNN suppot program if it would be offered by my business (IowaComputerGurus Inc.) for a much lower cost?  I would be looking at offering 24/7 service with a 24 hour first response time at the most.  Other details to be determined later if there is interest.

THis will be the last blog update until I return home on Friday from OpenForce.  If you are here in Las Vegas I would enjoy the opportunity to meet you, try and find me wandering around the conference area!
