New Feature of the MSDN Web Services Developer Center


Many of the folks who read this blog read it on the home page of the MSDN Web Services Developer Center.  On the dev center we added a new section on the hompage entitled “Most Active Web Services Newsgroup Discussions”.  This is an ASP.NET control that is monitoring the microsoft.public.dotnet.framework.webservices.enhancements and the microsoft.public.dotnet.framework.webservices newsgroups.  The top 5 threads with the most recent posts are linked.  Since this was pretty much handed to me as a free new feature to the site I did not think much of it, but I have been very pleasantly surprised at how well this identifies the quality discussions on the newsgroups.  I know I personally have a hard time keeping up on all the newsgroup posts, but this has proven to be a pretty good method for culling some worthwhile info.  Of course you don’t get to see that post where some unlucky person asks a question and you are the only person who knows the answer, but it does a pretty good job at identifying some very interesting discussions.

Just another reason to keep checking back at the Web Services Developer Center.
