Me on Channel 9

When I was in Orlando presenting at the Orlando Code Camp I had the pleasure of working with Russ Fustino and Stan Schultes on the latest edition of Russ' Toolshed - It's All About the Tools. This is a Channel 9 show that Russ has created. You can check out the video that I'm in at Episode 2 It's All About The Tools TV Show.

The topic that I discuss in that video is how you can create a custom MSBuild logger to update your Twitter page to keep everybody informed about the build. I love how using a REST based api can be so simple when appropriate. Since Twitter exposes one, of course it was pretty simple. I think that this is a pretty cool application of a custom MSBuild logger, and as far as I know it is the first of it's kind. You can download the source for my logger from my company's page sedotech.com and clicking on the MSBuild Twitter Logger link there.

Check me out in that video, I'm presenting from about the 50 minute mark to about the 65 minute mark. The guys were teasing me saying that I type fast, I don't think so, do you?

 

This is my second video on Channel 9, my first is described in my post at http://www.sedodream.com/PermaLink,guid,4db4f0b7-9d23-4c64-9fd1-992fb2ae1727.aspx.
