A public Thank You! to Jeff McWherter

As President of the GLUGnet user group for .Net developers, I'm very concerned that each monthly meeting be a great experience for our members in every possible way. This usually means that I worry too much about a lot of things that never happen. Or almost never.

On the morning of our last meeting on 8/16, our scheduled speaker sent an email in the morning that he had the flu and could not make the meeting. With only hours left until the meeting, Jeff McWherter of A.J. Boggs, Inc. kindly offered to do a presentation on ASP.Net Performance and Optimization. As we got to the meeting, I found out that he suffered a hard-disk crash that morning and was forced to reinstall Visual Studio and also finish the presentation.

Despite these challenges, he gave a very interesting presentation that was well received by the audience. We all learned some very valuable lessons. Jeff is a Board Member of GLUGnet and this is just another example of how he contributes so much to the group and we all benefit from it.

Great job Jeff! Thank you so much!
