So, unless you've been coding under a rock for the past week, you're no doubt aware that once again the world's tightie whities are in a tizzy over the swine flu.
This of course all hits us only days before Tech Ed 2009, where Dev Express will be bringing its financial muscle to the gun show a la platinum sponsorship.
You may also recall that the Millahnator has been recently locked-out of Dev Express marketing meetings, because, well, the marketing folks at our company get all uptight whenever they find themselves in the presence of a marketing genius such as myself.
But the Millahnator will not be detered by some smarty-pants in security changing the access codes on my teal badge. I know when it's time to take the reigns of this company into my own hands. After all, if the forces that be didn't really want me to take initiative, then why did they give me a company credit card?
And so yesterday afternoon I put the old Dev Express company credit card to good use. After treating my mind to an expensive dinner at Morton's Steak House, I reclined back in my Morton's Steak House chair and thought and thought, just like Winnie the Pooh after taking a pawful of hunney.
I asked myself these questions:
- How can DevExpress capitalize on the latest pandemic fear that is gripping this nation's developers?
- How can DevExpress assuage the concerns of developers attending TechEd?
Then it hit me. DevExpress Face Masks!
After all, if being able to order 10,000 of these specially-branded Dev Express face masks without consulting anyone isn't what company credit cards are for, then I don't know what they're for.
See you at Tech Ed 2009, kids! :-)
