Now Blogging - Steve Cook
Steve Cook, a software architect on Visual Studio Team System at Microsoft's Cambridge Research Centre, has launched his blog (Steve Cook's WebLog - RSS). I've already added Steve to the master list of Team System bloggers (Visual Studio Team System Blogs). Steve Cook previously worked for IBM, where he achieved the status of Distinguished Engineer. At IBM, he was a member of the IBM Academy of Technology, which is a select group of technologists that represent the brain trust of IBM's technical leadership. He was also a member of the UML 2.0 core team and worked on Eclipse/EMF. Be sure to read his first post (Looking forward to OOPSLA) on the upcoming OOPSLA conference in Vancouver, BC.
Sharing the Whiteboard
Gareth Jones, a developer that works with the aforementioned Steve Cook in Cambridge, has returned his blog (GarethJ's WebLog - RSS) to its modeling roots. In this post (On distributing my office whiteboard), Gareth discusses some of the various technologies his team uses for communicating visually with remote teams.
