Chris Wallace



     Chris Wallaceís greatest passion is person-to-person technology knowledge transfer Ė but that only begins to explain his excitement at the thought of working directly with people to share his knowledge and gain insight into otherís knowledge of technology. Weíre talking software development, particularly using the  Microsoft Visual Studio and Development Technologies -- and Chris is talking about it all the time!


     A few minutes of live interaction about technology trumps numerous back and forth written communications. Live time is not only preferred, but saves time and frustration in the long run. Videos, blogs, forums, and chats are wonderful ways to extend and build upon those individual or small group sessions and each method of delivery and learning has its place. Chris believes that if you can make it when talking directly to one or a few fellow developers, then you can more easily broaden your experiences with groups as well as other media (itís all good). Interaction is where itís at, creating professional networks and growing real friendships.

     Chris is a software and business consultant, speaker, and user group leader in Microsoft technologies, emphasizing Microsoft Visual Studio and Development Technologies and all the cool and business proficient ways to use technology. He has extensive experience working in the US and Europe. His goal is to deliver complete application development solutions to meet real world business needs while exploring the edge (he says, ďIf you arenít living on the edge, youíre taking up too much space!Ē).

     Along the way, he has earned a Masters degree in Computer Information Systems from the University of Denver. He is a private pilot and long time member of the AOPA (Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association), plus a worldwide adventure traveler. When not solving the world's business technology problems, he can be found on the slopes of the Colorado Rockies with his team of Siberian Huskies.
     He was presented an award for his service to INETA and the user group community. A plaque was awarded by the INETA Board of Directors and the entire user group community as a token of thanks for all of his contributions, time, and effort spent supporting the community while serving on the INETA Board of Directors. On the accompanying letter, the INETA President stated that INETA exists because of passionate individuals like Chris, who are motivated to make a difference by getting involved and that our community is a better place because of the work he has done.
     As an INETA volunteer for six years, Chris served on the INETA Board of Directors as Vice President and in charge of all Membership for nearly three years and before that he was the User Group Relations Committee Chairperson for two years. He continues to work for the user group community and continues as a user group leader for Colorado. INETA is the International .NET Association of user groups. INETA is particularly active in Europe and other areas of the world.

     Chris has been the Leader of the Denver Visual Studio User Group since its beginning, March 1996. Hse was honored by his user group members with a "Life Time Achievement Award" in tribute to his many years of service to his user group, perhaps a bit too soon, since he is still going strong with the enthusiasm of a newbie!

Microsoft Most Valuable Professional
     He is proud to be a current Microsoft MVP (Microsoft Most Valuable Professional) in Visual Studio and Development Technologies, having been awarded that honor for each of the past fourteen years (2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017-2018).
