Tool - WinSplit Revolution - move windows between monitors

A coworker showed me a useful (and free!) tool that conveniently positions open windows on your screen.

The tool is Winsplit Revolution, and it let you use hotkeys to instantly move your windows, such as flipping a window between different monitors, or having two windows split on the same monitor. It also provides hotkeys for many other features, including maximizing and minimizing (you can use default OS keys, but I find the winsplit ones more convenient).

As a free tool that just works, I'm glad to have it.

Chicago Code Camp 2011 success

I was thrilled to participate in the 2011 Chicago Code Camp. We had about 300 people show up on Saturday to CLC, with 35 speakers, many volunteers, and a full day of learning and networking. Thanks to a dozen sponsors, the event was free to the public. This is the third year we've had a CCC, and it keeps getting better.

It really is a privilege to be part of such a community.
