  • Blog Post: November is conference month…

    Every November comes around and I’m always reminded how many conference seem to take place about now, it’s kind of crazy – in a good way. I’m on to week three of travel, and haven’t seen my own bed in more nights than I care to count – but ah well! Where I’ve...
  • Blog Post: Running The IE VPC’s on other VPC Hosts?

    I’ve had a few people email me, or email the IE blog to ask about running the IE VPC’s on other VPC hosts than Microsoft VPC so I figured I’d post this to my blog. I don't think anything has changed in the images since we've started producing them back in 2006. I'm pretty sure they've never worked...
  • Blog Post: Testing Multiple IE Versions, VPC’s and Super Preview

    It’s been almost 2 years now since we first shipped the Internet Explorer testing VPC’s so that you could test IE6 and at the time IE7 on the same machine.  We understand the need for people to test IE6, IE7 and IE8 on the same machine, and remain committed to shipping the VPC’s!  The VPC’s...
  • Blog Post: TechEd09 - Top 10 Mistakes Made By Web Developers

    I consider myself a developer more than a designer. In fact, I’m pretty bad at web design. I know what looks nice, and I know what doesn’t work well, but I’m not so good at creating kick butt designs. So, at TechEd last year, I presented “Top 10 Mistakes Made By Web Developers” and it went over extremely...

  • Blog Post: Setting X-UA-Compatible with ASP.NET Pages

    I got an email today asking about the best way to go about adding the X-UA-Compatible tags on ASP.NET pages where you’ve got a master page, and may want to over ride the X-UA-Compatible tag in some content pages, but not others. After playing around with it in Visual Studio for a few minutes, I pulled...
  • Blog Post: Top 10 Web Mistakes [From TechEd EMEA]

    I just finished presenting my last session of TechEd EMEA for 2008 and I'm sad to be leaving! But, hopefully I'll get another chance next year. My last session was a repeat of "Top 10 Web Mistakes" and I said I'd post some of the sites that I showed during the session, so here they are. Sites That...
  • Blog Post: IE For Developers at Web 2.0 Expo

    Here's the slide deck from my session at Web 2.0 Expo last week. I cut out a few things in order to get it to fit in the 50 minute slot they allotted me, so it's kind of short, if you're looking for full details, check out the deck from Fronteers as it has a bit more detail on things. I did add a...
  • Blog Post: Fronteers Session

    Here's the deck that I presented today at Fronteers 2008. Seems like people got something out of it, and was told by a couple of people that "wow, I have nothing to complain about any more"! Love it!
  • Blog Post: I'm Back!

    <pokes head above blog wall> <moves some cob webs aside> hello! i'm back. :) a couple of months ago, I did an interview with Craig shoemaker about one of the session I did at TechEd this year, and he posted the interview a few weeks ago. I figured this would be a good place to start...
  • Blog Post: IE VPC's - Which Ones Next?

    Apologies for going dark the last little while, I'm going to do my best to change that again. Lots of stuff going on here that I'm really excited about, but before I get into that, I want to do an unscientific survey. We currently offer developers and designers the following VPC images: XP ...

  • Blog Post: IE6 / IE7 VPC's Coming

    Just a quick note to say that the IE6 and IE7 VPC images are being updated as we speak, and I suspect the new versions should be online Monday or Tuesday.

  • Blog Post: UPS Package Tracking In Your IE7 Search Bar

    Confession time, I'm an online shopping addict. Amazon and I get along really well. Well, Amazon and my bank account don't get along well, but Amazon and I do. Along with many other online stores, I tend to do a good bit of shopping online. This morning, I got a tracking notification for a package that...
  • Blog Post: IE7 Installation Update

    It's crazy to me that I've been in this new role for just over a year now, in fact, it's just about 13 months. In that time, I've seen IE7 ship, taken on new products like Expression Web and Visual Web Developer, met so many fantastic developers and designers and have had the awesome opportunity to travel...
  • Blog Post: Free Windows Based Hosting

    Whew, I'm back from my 17 day cruise in the Mediterranian and while it's good to be back, I sure missed a lot! I'm still trying to get things sorted, but in the mean time I figured I'd share this little juicy bit with you. Verio is offering free Windows based hosting for anyone who wants it! They...
  • Blog Post: ReMIX Sessions from Amsterdam

    Sorry for being so quiet lately, things have been a little nutty, but in a good way. We've been pretty heads down working on all kinds of fun stuff, the next version of IE, the next version of Expression Web and getting ready to launch Visual Studio 2008. I'm really excited to see that one ship. I worked...
  • Blog Post: ReMIX: Presentations in PDF & Source for VS2008 Demo

    Yep, the internet is on! I think most of the comments I got yesterday all revolved around the fact that I posted all my presentations in PPTX format. I work for Microsoft, and well, I use PowerPoint to create my presentations. I figured most people, even if they didn't have PowerPoint on their machines...
  • Blog Post: ReMIX: Search Engine Optimization For Rich Internet Applications

    I think that this was my favorite session I did while doing all my ReMIX presentations. It was the one I found most interesting, and most relevant to the work that I do, and see many web developers and designers doing every day. I'm not sure if there is video for this session, but if it shows up, I'll...
  • Blog Post: ReMIX: Building Your Own Video Site

    In Amsterdam and Zurich, I presented a session called Building Your Own Video Site. It was pretty cool, but sadly, the one hour we had to do the session, there was no real way to build the application up from scratch, so we just used a pre-built sample, and added some new UI and features to it. The site...
  • Blog Post: ReMIX: Using Visual Studio 2008, codenamed Orcas

    I presented this session both in Amsterdam and in Zürich, though I managed to lose my notes in Zürich and had do to a number of the demo's by the seat of my pants which was a bit of a challenge. In any event, it was based on a session by Omar Khan of the VWD team that he presented at MIX07, called "...
  • Blog Post: ReMIX: Implementing Rich UI For Web Applications

    In Amsterdam at ReMIX, I presented "Implementing Rich UI for Web Applications" where I showed how to deliver richly interactive web experiences with animation, video and more using Silverlight and Expression. It was based on a session from MIX07 by Joe Stegman titled " Building Rich Web Experiences using...
  • Blog Post: Web Blunders: The Top 5 Biggest Mistakes On The Web

    At TechEd this year, I presented a session where I presented my top five pet peeves on the web, the biggest and easiest problems to avoid on the web. With how easy it is to share content on the web, I felt that these top five things were the best and easiest to get rid of. In order, I felt they were...
  • Blog Post: TechEd &amp; ReMIX

    What a great couple of weeks, and it's not over yet! In the last two weeks, I've been to Orlando, Budapest, and Amsterdam, and I'm headed off to Zurich on Sunday. I've got some down time today and tomorrow before two more full days in Zurich. I've learned a lot, seen some fantastic things, and met some...
