    My Grand-Boss is Blogging, oh my!

    • 2 Comments
    Sara Williams, overlord manager of MSDN, has started her own blog . I'm sure this will be a great place for discussion around MSDN futures and features. I know that many people who read my blog use MSDN every day, so I expect to see lots of comments!

    Certification doesn't prove you know everything, but it certainly helps....

    My name is Julie and I am not certified. I stress out about it because I feel that it might garner me some peer recognition that I do not have after almost 20 years of programming. I don't need it for my clients or my business. [ Julie Lerman...

    A little 'bit' more on Int32 vs Integer

    • 3 Comments
    Darren's comments on my previous post: I certainly don't want to get into a debate over this but, shouldn't the question be: "what is it best to use?". I'm probably biased because I never really programmed in any typed languages before .NET, but,...
