Now, let’s see how I did on the days with sessions. Thursday I had Thursday figured out early on. I figured I’d wake up early, catch […]
Central Ohio Day of .NET this weekend!

Adventures at Cleveland GiveCamp 2012

Cleveland GiveCamp starts tomorrow afternoon, and I’m excited that it’s finally here. This year, I am working as a business analyst/project manager for two different charities.

This year, I’ve been asked to use my business analyst/project management skills for a group. I asked for this group in particular because once I saw them, I knew it’d be a non-profit that I believe in. Over the next few weeks, I’ll be working with ASL Advocates – a group that promotes American Sign […]
