An Experience with Facebook Ads

Tuesday, February 16th, 2010

Deprecated: preg_replace(): The /e modifier is deprecated, use preg_replace_callback instead in /home/bri58020/public_html/mike/wp-includes/formatting.php on line 74

In early January, I experimented with Facebook Ads.

 
The Ad on the left was targeted at All Australians and produced one click-through in 24 hours.  The Ad on the right was targeted at Australians aged 18 to 40.  It burnt through my daily advertising budget in about 40 minutes.

Robert Crago, Revelation Computing :
An Introduction to WPF 3D

Robert Crago is a long-standing QMSDNUG member and freelance developer here in Brisbane.  Robert has been working with WPF since mid 2008.  WPF is finding steadily-increasing use in development projects where the UI is important and supports a complete 3D engine “out of the box”.  To his knowledge the 3D aspects of WPF have not yet been explored at an MSDN meeting here in Brisbane.

This talk will cover both the concepts and code you need to get started with 3D in WPF.

  1. What you can do in 3D
  2. 3D basics using Expression Blend
  3. A simple 3D example without writing code
  4. Making a scene
  5. Using 3D in Line of Business apps
  6. Applying 3D to a real world example
Date: Tuesday 16 February 2009
Time: 17:30 for 18:00
Location: Microsoft Brisbane office, Level 9, Waterfront Place, 1 Eagle St, Brisbane
