  • Blog Post: Windows Intune install in 4 minutes

    Simon continues to be impressed by Windows Intune (our cloud based desktop management service) - as do the people he talks to about it. He's produced a nice video showing the install process:
  • Blog Post: NerdDinner hosted on Windows Azure and SQL Azure

    I recently got my hands on a Windows Azure and SQL Azure token to try out a little cloud goodness. The challenge I set myself was to host an ASP.NET MVC application (including data) in the cloud. Hopefully just an hour or so of fiddling about, but as I hadn't really used Azure before, it would also be...
  • Blog Post: Tesco, the Cloud and IE8

    No sooner have I finished banging on about IE8 than Tesco go ahead and release an accelerator to allow searching for groceries from IE . Cunningly, this accelerator takes advantage of the APIs that Tesco have released (some related posts there) and is hosted on Azure to ensure scalability. Here is a...
  • Blog Post: The Arc

    You may have already discovered Arc magazine (it’s a series of 4) which aims to describe Software + Services for Architects, but if not, you should know that apart from the physical copies, you can get the digital versions from our Architect Portal
  • Blog Post: GlaxoSmithKline and Microsoft Online Services

    Filed under “stuff that happened while I was away” is this fairly important announcement that GSK is to deploy 100,000 seats of hosted services from Microsoft (they’d previously been on Notes). As ZDNet reports , it makes Google’s 15,000 seats at Genetech look small by comparison. Of course, size isn...
  • Blog Post: S+S and Mardi Gras

    From my Aussie buddy Greg Willis’ blog , there’s news of a DeepZoom-y/Azure-y solution bringing to life the Sydney Mardi Gras that he and Michael were involved in. My erstwhile colleague, Brighty, is Down Under working with Greg & Co, and I can certainly sense his involvement in this somewhere. You...
  • Blog Post: Gee, Software + Services Makes Sense

    OK, so obviously I’m going to have a bit of a dig at Google suffering from a few problems on the email front (and apparently some weird stuff on the Groups front ). Of course this is because the typical news coverage they get is ‘ Ooh, they have a new Favicon ’ (Come on BBC…) or ‘ Hey, they did/did not...
  • Blog Post: Live Mesh Blogger Meet-Up – 11th December, Soho

    @stevecla will be propping up the bar talking about cloud computing along with top guys like Jeff Hansen and @anguslogan next week at a blogger meet up in London . Deets: If you'd like to join us please edit the wiki to add your name - that way we'll have a good idea of how many people to expect. Where...
  • Blog Post: OreDev Presentation: Software + Services

    Today, myself and Blooders presented on Software + Services on the Architecture track at OreDev (as previously mentioned). Our intention was to provoke some thought on the pressures on architects, and the drivers for Software + Services, and help architects think about modelling and translating these...
  • Blog Post: Windows Azure Explained

    OK, so it’s hardly Monty Python but… This was a bit of work that myself, Mark Quirk, Michael McClary, George and Will worked on as a simple explanation of Azure (RedDog at the time…) Yes, that’s me on the treadmill with the bandage on my head. The things we do. Eileen is going to be putting together...
  • Blog Post: Creating a Silverlight Mesh-Enabled Application

    I’m hoping that Katrien was inspired by the PDC BBC iPlayer demo that we worked on here, as she created this great step-by-step guide to building a Silverlight Mesh-Enabled Application . I’d like to tell you that it was a smooth for us when we were building against the pre-release versions but you know...
  • Blog Post: Remote Desktop and Mesh

    On a Mesh tip, a colleague mentioned yesterday that his primary use of Mesh had been to provide remote desktop support to the family, and then Eileen mentions the same thing . As a software chap I try not to offer any support to the family, as typically I have no idea of how to fix the printer (or do...
