birthdaycake As every year on September 11th I’m getting one year older… and today I’m becoming 34.

My 33rd year has been an exciting one from the professional stand point, and pretty good from the open-air ones as well.

I started an exciting job in Avanade and I met great colleagues, I co-founded the UGIALT.NET community, I got excited by the ASP.NET MVC framework and started evangelizing it, I became a Mac addicted, I wrote a bunch of articles on ASP.NET MVC for DotNetSlackers, I started writing a book, again on ASP.NET MVC (it’s already available for pre-order on Amazon UK and soon will be Amazon US), and I organized the first Italian ALT.NET conference.

On the open-air side unfortunately I didn’t climb as much as I wanted, due to poor weather conditions and some health issues, but I started biking again, after almost 10 years or more of not doing it.

And then yesterday we all survived the LHC experiment and the Earth didn’t get sucked in by a black hole.

What better gift for this exciting year if not a brand new all-carbon road bike?

I just found out that Keyvan birthday is September 11th as well, so Happy Birthday to him!!!

Congratulations and happy birthday Simone. We miss you down here in NZ, although I suspect the climbing weather is better where you are now.

Congratulations Simo :-) It looks like that you have had a very busy year ;-)

As I told you on Twitter, my official birthday is September 11th but my real birthday is October 10th but thank you for the greeting :-)

Happy birthday Simo!!!

I want you to know I’m really astonished about this post title… It’s clearly an example of bad design incapsulation!!! You definitely should think about “optimizing” the architecture :-)

That's causing a bit of confusion...
but I guess the birthday that you really care of can be easily understood:
when do you give out parties for your birthday?

In October, of course ;-)

I don't know if you have same thing in Italy but in many countries those who are born in the first half of the year should go to school one year sooner than others (or some laws like this). In local calendar my real birthdate is in the second half so my parents got my official certificates with September 11th as the birthdate.

that's because I didn't persist the age yet. That will happen only tonight with a call to BloggerRepository.Update();
