Gotdotnet Party…You’re invited!

If you are a Gotdotnet community member and you will be in the Seattle area this Friday, I invite you to join me and the rest of the Gotdotnet team--past and present--to celebrate the fifth anniversary of the first ever .NET Website, which launched on November 15, 2000.

Come on down and meet the gurus, goddesses, and codeslingers who made Gotdotnet rock, as well as the current team members who are passionately dedicated to making it even better in the future. Take a walk down memory lane with PM Betsy Aoki, play Xbox against the GDN devs, report a issue to our test lead, Pete Coupland, or peer into the future with Product Manager, Korby Parnell, Program Manager, Jim Newkirk, or our fearless leader Sandy Khaund.

Are we crazy? Well, yes. We are crazy about Gotdotnet and every single one of the half million developer and IT professionals who visit Gotdotnet each month. If you don't happen to live in the Seattle area, this event will not be Webcast and anyway, beer and cake don't travel too well over the Internet. However, keep a lookout for a Gotdotnet event in your region sometime in the coming year. The Gotdotnet team is acting locally now but thinking globally for tomorrow.

Viva Gotdotnet: The .NET Framework Community Website!

    Does it rock?, really?

    Everytime I try to enter gotdotnet I get this:

    "Your request cannot be processed at this time."

    I have tried for many days now to download PnP’s EntLib and other stuff, but it’s impossible..

    Yeah, talk about embarassing! It was a blind deployment at 7PM on a Friday evening. Cough. Cough. The HTML looked good at the time. Really! There goes my review…

    Operational Troubleshooting in Progress

    The GotDotNet Web site is unavailable at this time while maintenance is being performed… sorry for the inconvenience, it will be back online within 2 hours time – Thanks for your patience.

    And so it goes…

    Hi Denny,

    How’s it going? We took Gotdotnet down this morning to deploy a fix for a caching issue that was introduced in our November 3rd deployment. Nasty little issue. For more, see

    Eine der wichtigsten Themen bei der Entwicklung von Software ist das gemeinsame Arbeiten. Quasi Teamarbeit, oder Teamwork ganz aktuell gesagt. Klar, ab und zu schafft man nicht alles alleine… 😉 Das gemeinsame Arbeiten erfordert allerdings eine gemeinsame
