    Microsoft Brings .NET to Katrina Relief Effort

    • 2 Comments
    Good story in eWeek about some of the Microsoft efforts around Katrina.
    Microsoft Brings .NET to Katrina Relief Effort
    A group of Microsoft technologists quickly deployed to contribute their time and talent to the relief effort, and decided to develop a Web site and supporting applications to help Katrina evacuees reach out to relatives and friends and also enable families to locate people they have not heard from since the hurricane hit, said Jim Carroll, chief architect and project manager for the system, known as KatrinaSafe.
    The calls for help inside Microsoft went out and were answered incredibly quickly. Robert Scoble has more on similar efforts here.

    PDC 2005 Security Symposium

    • 0 Comments

    Today we posted a page with information about the PDC 2005 Security Symposium (Friday, September 16th at the PDC). This is a great opportunity to hear some of the top security people from Microsoft discuss security issues. Here's the link to the page:

    Security Developer Center: PDC 2005 Security Symposium
    Want to learn more about what it takes to build security into each phase of software development? Come hear some insider tips and best practices from Microsoft and industry developers that are doing just that – building security into the software development process using the Microsoft Security Development Lifecycle (SDL) as their model. The SDL is a process that Microsoft implemented to provide customers with high quality software that is meticulously engineered and rigorously tested to help withstand malicious attack.

    I'll update that page with addional resources as they come available. For now, be sure to review the page and read the SDL Document as prep for the symposium. If you're not going to the PDC, stay tuned and I'll try to get as much information about these topics as I can added to the page.

    Probably moving my blog to MSN Spaces...

    • 0 Comments
    As I do like MSN Spaces so much, I'm in the process of testing it as my permanant blog home. This isn't easy because my current blog is consumed from a number of different Developer Centers on MSDN, and so I have to test some of this out to make sure it's going to work properly. If you have any opinion on this, please feel free to drop me a note at brianjo@microsoft.com. I haven't made any final decision on this yet, though I'm leaning toward using Spaces. Here's a link to the Spaces blog.

    The new RSS feed is here. Because in the end, it's really just all about the RSS right? :)

    Doc Holladay has posted an invitation from Barak Cohen for an ISV event at the PDC to isvchalktalk.com. Get the details here:
    PDC2005: Deployment Technology Design Review invitation
    I just got a note from Barak who is a BDM (Business Development Manager) in the Developer Division about a deployment technology design review (ISV focused) that he would like to invite you to at PDC. This is a great chance to influence the direction of a Microsoft product/technology with your direct input.
