I just wanted to post a quick update. I'm on a bit of a hiatus from my XNA Terrain tutorial series for a few days as I'm attending the Heartland Developer's Conference in Omaha, NE. One more day remains and so far the conference has been outstanding. I had the pleasure of having lunch with Scott Hanselman today as well as attending his keynote and off-the-cuff presentations. There are some exciting things coming out of the Microsoft stack soon and I'm sure I'll be blogging about them as I dive into them.
If you've never been to HDC I would highly recommend it. The atmosphere is fantastic, the networking opportunities are phenomenal and the presentations are both informative and entertaining. If you've never had a chance to see Hanselman speak I would highly recommend that as well. He has a real knack for providing great information in a humorous and entertaining manner. Here's a picture I had taken with Scott outside of the conference center:
