MSDN/TechNet "Best Of" events

visual studio 2005 release candidate - asp.net

on some level i like to think i had input on getting this feature in: the “publish” link is for those who want the precompilation option.  prior to RC (in beta2) it was hidden more than a few clicks away — which was a shift from those used to the right-click “build” option in today’s asp.net projects… so if you are looking for the precompile option — it’s at your fingertips now.

PDC05: Day 1 - keynote, no more NDA goodnes

so the keynote we’ve all been waiting for has finally happened…this was a great first day in my opinion… Highlights: BillG video with Napolean Dynamite — we saw this at some internal training and despite some parts being cut out, it was still hilarious (unless you have no idea who napolean dynamite is) Don Box making fun of the memory space VS2005 is using What we saw: Vista: aero glass effects, sidebar & gadgets, parental controls, peer networking (people near me), stacked documents, virtual folders, etc. Office12: i’ve been waiting to say something about this for a while.  what a revolutionary change to some of the...

PDC05: wireless woes

as usual…get thousands of people with laptops in a room:

PDC05: Day 0

UPDATE: 1:20 PM PDT – Power goes out in the entire valley area.  PDC03 was fires, this year it is a power outage! today is my first official day at PDC, however, there really isn’t anything “official” going on today unless you are in some of the pre-conference stuff. who says you can’t have enough eggs: here’s the main expo hall with the community lounge: i’m meeting with the regional director team — which are community experts from across the world.  there are 68 RD’s represented from 26 different countries…that’s pretty cool.  the RD team are the ones helping out with the PDC Underground...

PDC05: Day -1, part 2

we finished up our west region de meeting and went out on the town. we ended up at some saddle ranch restaurant at universal citywalk. one of my counterparts, jmauer, got motivated to implement a “windows vista” inspired mohawk (it seemed appropriate to leave the red-eye in): prior to a late dinner, i caught up with some phoenix guys (scott cate and brad meade) and scott showed me a bit of what he’s going to be showing at PDC this week with myKb.com:    new UI and features — ajax style ;-) we went to some saddle ranch place for dinner…that just happened to have...

PDC05: Day -1

“…on the road to PDC…” — seems like a common posting these days.  well, i shall be no different. i’m actually going to PDC earlier to meet with my team prior and get some things hashed out with our goals for the year. i’m really excited about this year’s PDC.  a lot of local community champions are going to be there and even two of them are exhibiting: Axosoft (Hamid Shojaee) and myKB.com (Scott Cate).  it will be really cool to see these guys exhibiting at PDC — it’s a large cost i know, but i think they’ll get gret value, exposure, etc. out of...

ms online virtual training -- free

While nothing can replace in-room training (especially with SimonA!), a few people have asked if we will be repeating the VS2005 courses in the future. While the short answer is "yes" -- here's an immediate alternative for you to look at. I personally prefer getting in-class training (and that way I can give out some books/swag as well), but these serve as a supplement and alternative for those whose schedules cannot make it. Visit this site: http://www.msvirtualclassroom.net/ for a list of upcoming online virtual classes.
