The good news

The manuscript is finished and submitted! Now I’m waiting for feedback, and certainly some corrections will be made. However, the big stuff is done.

Below you can get some numbers about how I passed the last 4 months writing:

  • 9 chapters
  • 3 appendices
  • 340 pages
  • 250 images
  • 1.5 GB of content created

Time statistics

  • 500 hrs of writing
  • 142 hrs/month (yes, it’s become my second fulltime job)
  • 4.5 hrs sleep/day
  • 14 holidays taken for fulltime writing
  • Average hour of going to sleep:
    • First month of writing: 11.30 p.m
    • Last month of writing: 03.00 a.m.

Trivia

  • 15 albums listening to while writing (7 from which Rammstein)
  • 1 640GB backup hard disk smashed on the floor, causing:
    • INF swearings over the broken hard disk

It was a great experience to write the book and I had the chance to take a 4 month intensive course in specializing on selected topics. However, now I’m really looking forward to increase my sleeping again back from 4.5 to 8 hours!

Stay tuned and best regards,

Dear all,

It’s my pleasure to announce that I have been invited as a speaker for this year’s .NET DevCon conference on 6th and 7th June in Nuremberg (Germany). I’m looking forward to this great opportunity to meet a lot of interesting people!

I am going to hold a session about productivty increasing Visual Studio 2010 Add-Ins. The talk will be based partially upon an article I wrote for the German dotnetpro magazine:  “Die Crème de la Crème”.

Here you can find an abstract of the session:
