Coders Café Report from Washington DC - Dave Noderer & Shervin Shakibi

In the picture… Marc Noderer, Dave Noderer, Maureen Homnick, Lois Frankel (Florida 22nd Congressional District), Joe Homnick, Shervin Shakibi.
Quoting from the invitation to this event:

" A few weeks ago, Dave and Shervin traveled to Washington DC as part of the annual ACT Flyin ( to talk to the house and senate about topics of interest to software developers everywhere.

The primary topics were Intellectual Property, Privacy and Piracy.
Intellectual property focused on the need for patent reform in a way that is fair to both large and small companies. Privacy affects all of us and especially app developers. There are many regulations and we all want to do the right thing but it is difficult for a small company to decipher and understand what is required. Piracy is important to app developers. If someone steals your mobile app bits and republishes, if they are in the USA it might be possible to catch and prosecute them, even for a small company. If that someone is in a forgeign country, especially for a small company, it turns into a trade issue and we need the support of our government to help.

Come and hear our stories and add your own at the next coders cafe.


Dave and Shervin have been doing software development for many years focused on Microsoft Technologies. Dave is a Microsoft MVP and Shervin is a Microsoft Regional Director."
