Geek Dinner In Seattle/Redmond Sunday Night

0 comments suggest edit

UPDATE: We decided on the Three Lions Pub in Redmond at 7:30 PM

beer-and-dinner I’m going to be in Redmond next week and would love to get a geek dinner together around 7:30 PM. My flight gets in at 5:18 PM so I hope that’s doable. Anybody interested in joining us?

I think Scott Hanselman, Brad Wilson, Scott Koon, and Scott Densmore will grace us with their presence. If you’re interested in showing up, post a comment so we get a rough idea of numbers.

Topic for discussion, Forget Separation of Concerns, what does MS Dev Div have against Spaghetti Code? I like spaghetti!

Another potential topic of discussion, Render on POST - A fool’s http response or a pragmatic approach? Choose a side and let the all-out bare knuckle bloody brawl begin.

Final topic, if you believe GET is the one true way to render and prefer redirect on POST, which one do you choose? 302 or 303?

    I'd like to join you. I dislike spaghetti code, but I like ravioli code. I think render on post is pragmatic. I think redirecting to a get after a post is for people that grew up with more bandwidth than is good for them.

    And one more question:
    why all the cool guys are named Scott? :)

    I never really thought of post with a redirect, but it makes sense in a way. I abhore not being able to hit the back button without IE saying "resend data?" or worse... losing entirely the state of the display.
    So I'm going to really have to play with that one.

    Count me in. I've already arrived in Seattle. I can see why the weather here would be conducive to development. ;)

    MUCH better!
    We will also come up with a name for the ALT.NET movement as well as write out their charter, mission statement, and provide some team building exercises for them. We will inform them of our decisions during a secret ceremony to be performed during the full moon on the seventh day of the seventh month of the seventh year of the new centu.....Crap, we slipped already.
    We will also rename "Mort". I suggest "Scott". Because that would make product meetings at Microsoft really confusing. "Scott will never get this." Scott Guthrie & Hanselman: "Sure I will!"
    Do we want to try the Three Lions Pub in Redmond?

    I'd love to, but I can't do Sunday nights, and I'll be in Portland that day. I'll be up in Seattle on the 10/23-24, then 11/7-9. Have a blast and take pictures for me!

    Forget Separation of Concerns? Nevah!!!!
    Well, I had you down for Monday, 10-15, and have been conflicted since I learned Alistair Cockburn will be speaking at an added APLN Seattle meeting that night. So that problem is solved (and I wonder if the APLN meeting is full yet).
    Sunday doesn't work, sorry. Got theatre tix for "Million Dollar Quartet" at the Village Theatre in Issaquah. You should go. I saw this in a new-play reading and understand the first full-up theatrical production is awesome.
    More geek dinners, more often. That's the ticket ...

    I'm thinking we can do one the week of the PNP Summit, probably that Weds, November 7th.

    Hey. No fair trying to lure people away from OpenForce '07. Besides, Phil is otherwise booked that week with partying in Vegas.

    I live in Issaquah, so I'm in. Let me know when & where, and I'll try to be there. Hopefully, where ever we end up going has the Seahawks / Saints game on.
