Hunt the Wumpus in Atlanta

I’m looking to recruit other software folks to help teach software engineering practices as part of our Hunt the Wumpus program.  This project is something that Microsoft has already been running in the Seattle area for several years, and I am looking to bring it to Atlanta. You wouldn’t have to be employed by or…

Windows Embedded Challenge ROCKS!

I know I said I’d be blogging on the ce_base team blog now, but I figured my personal blog is a better place for this one as it’s more personal in nature.  I just finished two days of serving as a judge for the Windows Embedded Student Challenge.  I had a most wonderful time.  The…

Windows CE Base Team Blog

We just created a new team blog, the CE base team blog, to cover kernel & file system issues. http://blogs.msdn.com/ce_base/ I’m going to start posting there instead of here.  I probably won’t have a lot of side-posts on this blog; I don’t really have the energy for lots of off-topic personal stuff.  So if you are…

On the lighter side

It is actually pretty funny to read this page in gizoogle: http://sites.gizoogle.com/?url=http://blogs.msdn.com/sloh/ It’s really just an updated version of “jive,” but it has been a while since I played with those filters so it’s fun again.  🙂 Im tha Double O G. and I’m not straight trippin’ any raps.  Yeay cuz its a pimp thang!…

DevCon 2005

Yeay!  I’m going to this year’s DevCon, which covers both Mobile and Embedded this year (instead of just Embedded as I’ve gone to in years past).  Should be a hoot.  I’m signed up as plain staff, not giving any talks (so far!), so I’ll be working the booth, Ask the Experts, etc. For more info…

Thread Lab materials are posted for EDC participants

They’ve finally posted my thread lab handouts and code up on www.edccontent.com.  So if you went to DevCon and need that material, you can get it now.  The handout contains everything I talked about in my hands-off lab, but also has some details I didn’t, mostly samples of other threads (explorer.exe, cmd.exe) interfering with program…

I survived!

Hooray, I survived DevCon!  The kernel talk and perf talk were ready to go by Monday, and after many short nights last week and this week, my lab was ready “enough” by Wednesday morning.  The handouts are missing some screenshots and a lot of polish.  The program I demo’d with was not quite as complete…

Another DevCon talk

Looks like I’ll also be giving  the “Inside the Windows CE Kernel” talk at DevCon.  It means a little bit of studying for me but it shouldn’t be a disaster.  It’s a lot of content for an hour though. I think my Hands-On Lab with CeLog/Kernel Tracker was turned into a Hands-Off Lab.  Which is…

See you at DevCon!

Sorry I haven’t been posting any content.  Mainly I expect content to come out of newsgroup interaction and general customer questions, and I have been a slacker about being on the newsgroups.  Too many high-priority things going on right now. I’ll be giving a talk (“Tools and Techniques for Investigating Performance Problems on Windows CE-based…

Get help on the Windows CE Newsgroups!

The newsgroups are my favorite way to help you with your problems; if you have a problem you’re looking for help with, I’d prefer you post your question on a newsgroup and then point me to it.  That way you have a chance at getting help from other people, and other people who have the…
