  • Blog Post: This Week’s Link List (June 18, 2010)

    I missed posting a Link List last week (I posted resources from my DPC presentation instead), so some of these links may seem a bit dated. And, some are , in fact, a bit old, but I found them to be very helpful in preparing for my DPC presentation…I think they are still very good reading. In any...
  • Blog Post: PHP on Windows Resources from DPC Presentation

    My “PHP on Windows” presentation at the Dutch PHP Conference (presented today…whew!) focused on the recent improvements in interoperability between PHP and Microsoft Technologies (my slides are attached to this post). If you attended, please rate my presentation at http://joind.in...
  • Blog Post: This Week’s Link List (June 4, 2010)

    This has been a busy week…apparently especially so for Maarten Balliauw and Josh Holmes (lots of good stuff from them this week). And, it seems to have been a busy week for news about Windows Azure – a higher-than-usual proportion of this week’s links pertain to Microsoft’s cloud...
  • Blog Post: This Week's Link List (May 28, 2010)

    Lot's of interesting links this week...topics ranging from Microsoft's involvement in PHP/Open Source to tips on how to secure a PHP application. As usual, I hope these prove to be interesting and/or helpful... Cal Evans talks about "seeing Microsoft in the big picture" (great discussion follows...

    Here’s this week’s list of links that grabbed my attention…check ‘em out: A new PHP/Azure lab on MSDev: "This lab is designed for developers who work with PHP and who would like to be able to run PHP applications on the Microsoft Windows Azure platform." - http://www.msdev.com/Directory/Description...
  • Blog Post: This Week’s Link List (May 7, 2010)

    I didn’t come across lots of interesting links this week, but I’ll make up for the lack of quantity with an abundance of quality. There continues to be lots of interesting news about PHP/SQL Server interoperability with some major PHP applications… "Today Microsoft is announcing that the Windows...
  • Blog Post: This Week’s Link List (April 30, 2010)

    No particular theme to this week’s links… In his blog post "The Last Mile for Open Data", Nik Garkusha writes "Whether through the momentum created by open data communities, activists, municipalities, or developer communities, help from industry players like Microsoft, or combination of all...
  • Blog Post: This Week’s Link List (April 23, 2010)

    I’m back from an exciting trip to DrupalCon in SF and I’m still reflecting on that experience. Look for a DrupalCon summary from me early next week. In the meantime, I’ll share some of my interesting links for the week. Of course, several of these are related to Microsoft announcements at DrupalCon…...
  • Blog Post: This Week’s Link List (April 16, 2010)

    A longer list than usual this week. There was lots of news/buzz this week around Windows Azure and PHP. The first three links below are follow-ups by attendees of the recent JumpIn Camp in Zurich (which focused on PHP and Azure). The other links provide better-than-usual content too… This is an...
  • Blog Post: This Week’s Link List (April 9, 2010)

    I haven’t been writing as much this week as in past weeks, but I HAVE been paying attention. :-) Here’s my favorite links of the week… · I think this is my favorite link of the week…the Interoperability Lab at Microsoft has announced the availability of the SQL Server Reporting Services SDK for...
  • Blog Post: This Week’s Link List (March 26, 2010)

    Here’s the links that I found especially interesting this week…lot’s of news around Microsoft and open source projects. 1. Interesting news from the Open Source Business Conference (OSBC) : “82% about 350,000 projects are Windows compatible” - http://blogs.msdn.com/interoperability/archive/2010/03...
  • Blog Post: This Week’s Link List (March 19, 2010)

    I said last week that I wanted to share my favorite links on a weekly basis, and I still do. But I’m changing the title of the weekly post from “This Week’s Greatest Links” (which, I have to admit, wasn’t a great title) to “This Week’s Link List” (which sounds better and is better for a list of programming...
  • Blog Post: This Week’s Greatest Links (Mar 12, 2010)

    I’m jealous that my wife can find the time (I don’t know how she does it) to read so many books just for fun. That isn’t to say that the reading I do isn’t fun, it’s just not the curl-up-on-the-couch-and-get-lost-in-a-story kind of reading I would like to do if I didn’t need sleep. And, I’m not saying...
  • Blog Post: Top 10 PHP-Microsoft Resources

    As I’ve learned (and continue to learn) PHP and Microsoft technologies, I’ve found some very helpful resources on the web. But, they are sometimes hard to find, and they certainly aren’t usually found in one place. So, before I begin drilling into some of the things I suggested in my first post , I thought...
