I’m not sure what side of the fence you may fall on when it comes to reference posters, but while I don’t have my work space walls plastered with them they are none the less very informative and useful. More often than not if you’re looking for a quick answer many of these reference posters do exactly that. Oh and it doesn’t hurt that these posters and let you true geek shine thru and you may become the envy around your fellow geeks. Just remember to hang them in a location where you will not have the team looking over your shoulder all the time. In fact, why not point them to this post and tell them to print their own copies! So take down that silly office photo and hang up something that provides value.

In fact over the last decade technology has progressed so rapidly that I find it difficult to stay on top of learning activities.

In fact at the time I am writing this post I am sick and it is showing little sign of letting up. The next best thing to being there of course is watching Channel 9 Live at MIX10 – Who, What, When, and How!? So be sure not to miss this opportunity to tune in and see first hand what is going on. This should be a fun filled three days with a lot of great content. In fact one of the biggest events may be related to the Windows 7 Series Phone and here is a prototype you should read about.
