November is conference month…

Every November comes around and I’m always reminded how many conference seem to take place about now, it’s kind of crazy – in a good way.  I’m on to week three of travel, and haven’t seen my own bed in more nights than I care to count – but ah well! Where I’ve Been Last…

Running The IE VPC’s on other VPC Hosts?

I’ve had a few people email me, or email the IE blog to ask about running the IE VPC’s on other VPC hosts than Microsoft VPC so I figured I’d post this to my blog. I don’t think anything has changed in the images since we’ve started producing them back in 2006. I’m pretty sure…


Testing Multiple IE Versions, VPC’s and Super Preview

It’s been almost 2 years now since we first shipped the Internet Explorer testing VPC’s so that you could test IE6 and at the time IE7 on the same machine.  We understand the need for people to test IE6, IE7 and IE8 on the same machine, and remain committed to shipping the VPC’s!  The VPC’s…

Top 10 Web Mistakes [From TechEd EMEA]

I just finished presenting my last session of TechEd EMEA for 2008 and I’m sad to be leaving!  But, hopefully I’ll get another chance next year. My last session was a repeat of “Top 10 Web Mistakes” and I said I’d post some of the sites that I showed during the session, so here they…


IE For Developers at Web 2.0 Expo

Here’s the slide deck from my session at Web 2.0 Expo last week.  I cut out a few things in order to get it to fit in the 50 minute slot they allotted me, so it’s kind of short, if you’re looking for full details, check out the deck from Fronteers as it has a…


Fronteers Session

Here’s the deck that I presented today at Fronteers 2008.  Seems like people got something out of it, and was told by a couple of people that “wow, I have nothing to complain about any more”!  Love it! IE8atFronteers.pdf
