On the conference CD, my papers are:

Linux for Windows Developers
This paper introduces the Linux operating system and its architecture to Windows developers. Several key concepts and various tips and tricks for porting existing applications to the Linux operating system will be covered.

Writing Distributed .NET Applications
Before .NET, writing distributed applications was very difficult and required many different steps. While Delphi certainly provided useful tools for helping with these aspects of distributed applications, they still were cumbersome to install, configure, write and debug. Using Delphi for .NET and the Remoting namespace, this paper will demonstrate the power and ease of writing distributed applications — the .NET way.

If you are going to BorCon check out one of my sessions, or hunt me down and say hello. If you’re having trouble finding me, stop by the PILLAR booth in the exhibit hall and see if I’m there. Even if I’m not in the booth, someone there might know where to find me.

After the conference I will publish a couple of my papers. Look for the links on my Publications page. Leave a comment if you want to vote on what papers you to want see.
