Transitionals is Live!

Transitionals has finally been released to the public! I know it’s been some time since I last posted on Transitionals but it turns out it took longer to get approval for the project through legal than I had anticipated. I suppose I should have anticipated it, being that the code came from a Microsoft project…


Hello CodePlex

The Transitionals project is up! Or at least it’s created. You can try to visit it at CodePlex/Transitionals but the project isn’t published yet so I don’t know what you’ll see. We don’t plan to publish it until we get the source code in there. We’ve got until 3/21 before they automatically deprovision the project….


Click the Button

I’m so ready to click that thing — Transitionals is ready to go! Since my last post, so many things have happened. Certainly not the least of which is having David Hill from the original Acropolis team do a code reviewing with me over Live Meeting. How cool is that? From a code perspective, RandomTransitionSelector…


Scrub and Pub

Okay, so I can’t truly publish yet, but I did run the source code through the internal validation tools and got the (automated) approval to upload source. Since the Transitionals project is still not open to the public, I’ve gone ahead and uploaded to source control. I even had time to put some of our…


Got Blog?

Tonight I got the Ms-PL license included in the solution and used my License Injector app to insert a stub in each .cs and .Xaml file. I also updated the About screen to show the new project information. Yesterday I had a chance to talk with David Hill about the project and ask him why…


0 Failed, 0 Skipped

Build succeeded. Time Elapsed 00:00:01.44 ========== Rebuild All: 2 succeeded, 0 failed, 0 skipped ========== I don’t know about you, but it’s amazing to me how much joy a couple lines of ASCII can bring. Transitionals compiles! I’ve arrived in Florida and even though I didn’t leave Houston until after 9 PM last night, I…


Journey to the Source

Getting access to Microsoft source code is (not surprisingly) a long and arduous process. Actually, the tools for requesting access and tracking your pending approvals isn’t bad at all. There’s just a bit of red tape that your request has to go through. It’s one thing if you’re a Redmond employee working in a product…


It’s Nice to Have Friends

My teammate (and dare I say friend?) John Pelak has teamed up to help me with this project. He’s also helping with some other goodness I’ll talk more about in the coming months. Thanks for the help John, and welcome aboard!


The birth of Transitionals

So I’m up here in Redmond at TechReady. It’s a super secret event that we get to go to once a year and learn about the cool things the product groups have been up to. This year I’m learning about Prism, which is a cool lightweight framework for building composite applications in WPF. No, it’s…
