    • 5 Comments

    My first of two sessions this week here at TechEd is on Thursday, at 2:45pm in room 153ABC on "Designing Bindings and Contracts". I realize that the title sounds a bit abstract and a different way to put this would be "How to choose the correct bindings...

    I'm running Vista since Sunday. Surprised? I mean, are you surprised that I haven't been running Vista for the last several months already? Realistically, given I am one of a very small group of members of the greater Indigo team who telecommute across...

    • 1 Comments
    A question that is raised quite often in the context of “SOA” is that of how to deal with data. Specifically, people are increasingly interested in (and concerned about) appropriate caching strategies. What I see described in that context is often motivated...
