The Road to Oslo and Dublin

Nope, it’s not a lost Crosby-Hope-Lamour movie, or my upcoming vacation plans…  During some prep for an upcoming presentation on Windows Workflow Foundation (WF), I ran across an excellent white paper by David Chappell that talks about the future of WF as well as the new modeling technologies in Oslo and the server extensions provided…


Get Your Head in to the Cloud

The recent PDC was full of announcements around Windows Azure, the Azure Services Platform (or was it the Azure Platform Services!), Live Services, SQL Services, …. I’m still trying to wrap my brain around it all.  If you’re in the same boat, check out Aaron Skonnard’s upcoming geekSpeek episode on December 3rd at 3 p.m. …


New Hampshire Stop Added to the Northeast Roadshow

Great news for those of you in the Granite State!  We just added a seventh stop onto our winter Northeast Roadshow.   Chris and I will be in Nashua, New Hampshire, on Dec. 18th with the same slate of content as on the other stops: Using jQuery and ASP.NET 3.5 AJAX Workflow Foundation A Look at…

He’ll also be opening up the floor for questions. Great opportunity to get the facts without the fruity hype. Date: November 20, 2008 Time: 2 – 3 p. m. EST…


Northeast Roadshow – Winter Edition

Whoa!  It seems like I’ve just finished my laundry from our last outing, and now Chris and I are heading back out for the Winter Roadshow.  We’re brewing up a new slate of content for you, including jQuery and ASP.NET 3.5 AJAX, WPF, WF, Silverlight and WCF/REST, and even some interesting things from Microsoft Research!…


D.C.: Got a (Silver)light?

Apologies to my friends in the Washington D.C. area for the delay.  As promised I’ve recorded the Silverlight 2 session from this quarter’s MSDN events.  This is my inaugural effort at doing a screencast at Microsoft, and I just found out that I don’t have all the accounts setup internally to post this quite yet. …


Is it REST?

In the last Northeast Roadshow series, we spent a great deal of time discussing what makes a service RESTful.  As I indicated, I’m planning to follow up next time with a more hands-on treatment of the topic applied in .NET – including the newly released WCF REST Starter Kit and ADO.NET Data Services.
