HDC (Heartland Developer's Conference) 2011

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:
