INETA Speaker Gig Last Night at Fresno’s Central California .Net User Group on Windows 8 JavaScript/HTML5/CSS3 Development

Let me start by saying three words. “CRASH AND BURN”.  Well, I guess that makes it sound much worse than it really was, however I have to say that I don’t enjoy when create a brand new project, press “Run” and it crashes with a funky license error.  Especially when I’ve come from out of town as an INETA speaker to talk about developing in Windows 8 with HTML5 / CSS3 and JavaScript to the Central California .Net Users Group.  People have high expectations!  I had done about 10 practice run through on the AmTrak train on the way to Fresno and no time did I have an issue.  First time in the actual meeting and the demo gods struck!  Here is the screen I was greeted with:   Or, for the jpg-challenged: … Continue Reading
