Here's an interesting demo that shows how Longhorn technology coordinates end-to-end business processes across systems to connect all the participants in commercial real estate transactions. Show Me
Many hardy souls responded to the request, so I present to you now the australian .net developer blogger opml.
One kind soul showed how we can do some amazing things with this OPML, such as creating a web page, and a rss link of the last 30 posts -- thanks for this Alex.
David Hill, a solutions architect in the .Net Enterprise Architecture Team at microsoft, has written a nice article about smart clients.
It's a really good read - good one Dave!
A smart client combines the benefits of both thick and thin client applications. We have been running a series of Smart Client workshops for ISVs here in Australia, and will continue to offer more in the coming months. Not to mention our online training that is already available.
I stumbled across the new ninemsn mobile portal site announcement.
The good news is they are using ASP.NET - woohoo!!!
The bad news is the design leaves a lot to be desired, as does the lack of content (4 news stories). But what really annoys me is the lack of time/date stamps on the homepage. When I see a thing that says 'Latest Headlines' it would be good to know when!
Have a look at it here http://mobile.ninemsn.com.au/mobile/home.aspx and decide for yourself.
I suspect I put some weight on over the holidays, but that's not what this post is about.
I'm in Melbourne this evening, getting ready to introduce the newest member of the team to the wonders of Australia and the .net developer community.
So, the Developer Evangelism team here in Australia is now a team of 6 people, with me as the team leader/manager/uber geek. We are split up geographically at the moment :
Southern Region (based in Melbourne) - David Sajfar, Jason McConnell and introducing Dave Glover from MS UKNorthern Region (based in Sydney) - Shuk Chan, Charles Sterling and introducing Andrew Coates
These guys are my elite team working with developers in the community and with local Australian ISVs. Over the next few weeks, I'll share some of the stuff we have done and some of the stuff we will do, but more importantly we will be hilighting what is already being done in the community - such as Victoria.NET, the terrific local .NET User Groups, and the Stanski AUS-DOTNET Mailing list just to name a few. I spoken about some of these already in earlier posts, so poke around my archives such as work, geek, or asp.net.
I know a bunch of you out there and I look forward to meeting you all over the course of the year.
I am keen to create a list of Australian .net bloggers and make an OPML file (OPML is "a file format that can be used to exchange subscription lists between programs that read RSS files, such as feed readers and aggregators.") available for anyone who wants to add this list their own rss readers AND i will get a summary RSS feed created that incorporates all these bloggers – that’s the wonders of rss, the stuff doesn’t need to be hosted in the same place.
So, if you are an Australian who is blogging about .net development, please leave your details in the comments of this post
