Put a Spring in your step!

My good friend and Object Consulting dude Kurt Heiz dropped me an email about a project he is embarking on that might be using the latest release of the Spring.NET. Spring.NET is a port of the J2EE open source project, Spring. So what is Spring[.NET]? It’s when developers come of age, and run carefree and…

Dev’garten is slowly growing!

So the last part of the Dev’garten arrived today; my shiny new Shuttle XPC running a dual-core 64Bit Intel Pentium D processor. This machine is the bomb, and is already up and running Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition x64! It’s soo quiet (compared the big server) that I barely know it’s there (yeah right). So…

Want to play in my Dev’garten ya?

What’s the Dev’garten? It’s the latest high-spec hardware from my favourite friends at Intel (do I sound like John Laws yet…you know what I mean). It’s two Dell Precision 380’s running the latest Intel dual-core procs, two dual-core notebooks (coming soon) and two wild dual-core x64 PowerEdge 2800 servers!!! Why have I received all this…

Partial Classes, SQO and Casa Del Sterling!

So now I’m sitting in the booth at the Brisbane Ready Launch tour, and I’m almost at the end of the whole tour. Last night was great, with about 100 members of the technical community coming along for some beer and pizzas and general revelry. Brisbane have a great community spirit, and it was awesome to finally…

SQL Server 2005 and Database Diagrams!

So I’m creating a portal for my riding buddies so we can organise rides and communicate easily, and I’ve started getting back into App Dev with anger. The first hiccup has been with SQL Server 2005; specifically, the database diagram functionality in SQL Server SMS. Turns out, if you create a database with an owner that isn’t an SQL…

Canberra, Liebovitz Life Rules and No Mo!

So I’m sitting at the Microsoft booth in the the Canberra Convention Centre, and another leg of the tour has been chewed on, and spat out. The night party was great, being the fourth stop, the intro/speech ceremony is pretty much signed and sealed. The turn out was great, with lots of folks making it…

Telstra starts podcasting!

Hat’s off to Telstra for picking up the podcasting vibe, and starting down that path. http://www.telstra.com.au/abouttelstra/corp/spotlight.cfm?ObjectID=181 Now, I know alot of people get all righteous and stuff about movements like blogging and podcasting, and view large corporates such as Telstra as invaders, but I applaud Telstra for their effort. When you’re a big ship like…

Sydney Launch, Bare Foot Man and Bling Pop!

Sydney went off, and I must take my hat (or as Lawsy would have it, my Akubra) off to the NSW community, you guys know how to rock! The night went really well, the change in beer was well received (although the light beer was the winner) and the absence of the Karaoke machine was…

Joel P in the place to be!

Joel Pobar of the CLR team is in Australia for a little while, and has kindly offered to make his way down to Melbourne for a session. My thoughts are that we put together a 2 hour session at the CITC at lunch and the Microsoft Theatre in the evening that covers: CLR Background CLR…
