  • Blog Post: MIX Day 1

    I won $50 tonight after an hour and a half at the blackjack table! I was really impressed with my sessions today. The highlights for me were the demos in Visual Studio Orcas ( Beta 1 is now available for download). There are some amazing features in Orcas. If you’ve read our Javascript article in...
  • Blog Post: MIX Day 0.5

    Hi, this is Mike Richter, website manager and developer for MSDN Magazine . I knew right away that MIX was going to be amazing when I got stuck behind Flavor Flav while trying to get off the plane in the Las Vegas airport. Having never been to Vegas, it's all new to me, with each hotel, casino, and...

  • Blog Post: Developing for Windows Vista

    For those of you unable to make it to DevConnections in Florida this week, there is some terrific content being presented by some great speakers.

  • Blog Post: Day 3 at SD West: Web 2.0 Interface Design

    I'm taking in a morning session, "Effective Web 2.0 Interface Design Patterns," being presented by James Hobart. It's an interesting demonstration of pitfalls of Ajax-based application design and how to avoid them. The most important part of any interface design is flow. James listed eight attributes...
  • Blog Post: SD West: Afternoon and show floor

    I spent the afternoon here at SD Expo going back and forth between sessions. I was stuck deciding between Christian Gross's "Ajax for Web Developers" session and Michele Bustamante's ".NET Technology Road Map: Grasp the Avalanche of Technologies Before You." It takes eight hours to fully present a road...
  • Blog Post: Day 2 at SD West: Why Software Sucks

    I'm sitting in a half-day seminar being given by FotM (Friend of the Magazine), David Platt. The topic is "Programming the Composite UI Application Block." And herein lies a lesson for attending conferences. When you see the title of the seminar, it seems a bit dry. Important information, perhaps...
  • Blog Post: Geopegging in MSDN Magazine

    In the April 2007 issue of MSDN Magazine , I described a project I'm working on - it's a client that lets you geotag existing JPG files on your drives. You should check it out; it's pretty cool, and demonstrates a couple of concepts as well (reading from a JPG with .NET, hosting a Web window and interacting...
  • Blog Post: Day one at SD Expo

    I am sitting in a session at SD West right now, as Juval Lowy discusses WCF for a full house. The first day of the conference consists largely of half-day sessions - the keynotes start tonight, and the exhibit hall opens tomorrow. Juval is one of our columnists in MSDN Magazine - look for him in the...
  • Blog Post: Blogging from Santa Clara

    Josh T here. I arrived late last night to SFO for the SD West conference. I'm on the advisory board, and thought I'd share some of the excitement with everyone for the next couple of days. I was on the flight with presenter Christian Gross, who had flown all the way from Geneva to be here for Monday...
