  • Blog Post: Windows 8 App Contest

    The holidays are definitely for spending time with family and friends however for me, when there’s an app/dev contest to win I can’t help but think about coding. It started innocently enough as a few members of my team said they had some ideas for an app and that building them and comparing...

  • Blog Post: Capturing Webcam Images

    It seemed like a simple task really; capture a still image from a webcam and save it to a file. Unfortunately something that appeared so simple was quite complex. If you’re familiar with C++ and want to use the Windows Image Acquisition (WIA) API, have at it. My personal preference is to stay with...
  • Blog Post: Technical Readiness

    Fortunately I’ve had the chance to attend many events dealing with technology but my favorite, for a number of reasons has to be a semi-annual internal Microsoft conference held in Seattle that brings together all ‘softies from all over the world. I recently attended this conference (which...

  • Blog Post: Roslyn CTP Released

    I’ve wrote quite a few blog posts about Anders Hejlsberg (i.e. Visual Studio Asynchronous Programming , Visual Studio 11 ) and deserving so as he’s one of those people that once you meet him you soon realize just how much knowledge he has to offer. You also quickly comprehend just how little...
  • Blog Post: Visual Studio 11

    I’ve been using the Visual Studio (VS) Developer Preview a lot lately and while there is no doubt that some items may change when this gets to the Release To Manufacturing (RTM) stage, it’s clear that from the new Team Foundation Server (TFS) advances to the new language enhancements, there’s...

  • Blog Post: Visual Studio LightSwitch

    Full disclosure: I’m a big proponent of Visual Studio but when it comes to creating data screens over and over again is, what’s the word I’m looking for – tiresome. Combine that with having to find and tweak some code because this new application works slightly differently than...
  • Blog Post: Anders Hejlsberg – Pure Genius

    If you have no idea who Anders is (for shame!) then like any true computer geek you probably turn to Wikipedia. Yes, you know you’ve made it when you get your very own wiki page .

  • Blog Post: Looking Back; Looking Forward

    I’m going to be showing my age here a bit but I remember when Visual Basic (VB) was born. To this day I still recall memories of using v3.0 (circa 1993) to add an icon to a bland gray beveled button whose action was to retrieve data from an Access v1.0 DB (thank you JET drivers) and thinking "this...
