I’m Dan Mezick, President of New Technology Solutions (North Haven, CT). I started NewTech in 1993, invented the VB BOOTCAMP™, and delivered all the early NewTech training in the 1990's, which I greatly enjoyed. We’ve trained over 60,000 developers since 1993, one class at a time.

I also enjoy flying small aircraft, mostly around New England.

Dan Mezick    

In the 1990’s I ran a large VB user group in Connecticut and wrote a lot of magazine articles on VB programming and so on. I ran into this great guy from Redmond who helped me get the VB user group started. Later I went to the 1995 COMDEX to give a seminar on VB programming and made a special trip to meet the guy from Redmond, who was also in town. Later this same guy from Redmond came to Connecticut. He sat me down and pitched this innovative, new developer training concept he dreamed up, called ‘Developer Days’.

I ran the first Microsoft Devdays in 1996, hosting 1 of 8 initial USA cities. I continued with Microsoft Developer Days and ran that for about 7 years for Microsoft as ‘Regional Director’ of Devdays in Hartford and Boston.

I’m pretty lucky. Because I’m so darned lucky, I’ve been quoted in loads of IT magazines over the years, magazines like CNET, COMPUTERWORLD, ZD NET, eWEEK, INFORMATION WEEK, and so on.

I’ve also been lucky enough to win business awards like the Deloitte and Touche Connecticut Technology FAST50 award. This is awarded annually to the 50 fastest growing technology firms in each state. NewTech won that one, in Connecticut, back-to-back in the years 2001 and 2002.

I greatly enjoy technology and business. I actively seek angel investing opportunities in promising tech startups. When I do this I am actively involved in the technology stuff as well as overall business model definition and execution.

I read a lot and I’m always thinking about things. As a result, I get some darned lucky breaks. I was lucky enough to be awarded a patent in the 1990’s for some development tool IDE ideas. You can view patent # 5,872,974 here: it’s the “Property setting manager for objects and controls of a graphical user interface software development system”. Since the issuance of that patent, ALOT of Microsoft patents cite mine. Here is the Google listing of that patent.

I’ve been lucky to have various book titles listed from the 1990’s on AMAZON.COM such as the VB Certification Exam Guide. I do not really enjoy writing books, unless there is a chance I can sell 1 million or more copies. Since I’m lucky, in the future anything can happen.

After about 1999 I got very interested in the P2P nature of the Internet. I saw open source phenomenon as something very significant to study and observe. Since that time, I’ve formed some ideas and posted them
    Coming in for the landing

on this web site. In 2001 I wrote Enter Late and Dominate, which asserts my theorem of open source.

This went unnoticed for almost 3 years and then all of a sudden in 2004 it got a lot of attention.

“Enter Late” seems to be on its way as an influential, popular essay on how (but not why) open source behaves in the larger economic ecosystem.

See my ongoing writing on open source here.

Open source is a strange beast. I do not claim to completely understand it. If you want to begin to understand it, reading Eric Raymond’s stuff is a great entry point.

So there you have it. Contact me personally if you have any questions about NewTech.

After 2005 or so, I got very interested in Agile and Scrum. You can learn more about that here.
