  • Blog Post: Liberation Day

    This week has been a whirlwind of announcements here at PDC2008, Windows Azure, Windows 7, LiveID becoming an OpenID provider, the changes to Live Mesh, and all the others. It is an exciting time to be developer in the industry, and there are enough new opportunities to spark the interest of anyone no...

    There are so many things to blog about, but I’m off on holidays to Coffs Harbour and Wiseman’s Ferry for two weeks. So check out Coatsy’s , Parso’s, Dave’s , and Catherine’s blogs. Watch out for news about PDC , and definitely DevSta . (which by the way has a mobile category now) For personal holiday...
  • Blog Post: IC08: Team SOAK on Aussie TV

    This morning David and Ed, 2 erstwhile members of Team SOAK – you remember, the team of Aussie Students that won the Imagine Cup in Paris a couple of weeks ago – appeared on Channel 10’s 9am with David & Kim . The boys did a great job of describing the SOAK solution, and their vision for the system...

    Those interested in entering the Demos Happen {Here} Competition all know that a condition of entry is to post your video to http://sliverlight.live.com Our original intent was to enable everyone to stream their video on their own blog, and feature it on the Heroes Happen {Here} Community Website .

  • Blog Post: Demos Happen {Here}

    Our National Demo Competition is starting to hot up, despite the seeming lack of activity on the Community Website, and I've been fielding a number of questions across the board. I thought it may be high time to post the most frequent, and attempt at least to answer these as best I can. As ever if you...
  • Blog Post: Popfly Game Creator - This is awesome

    I've seen sites where you can create your own games. Of course there's also the XNA Game Studio where you can create games for both the XBox and the PC. But with the Popfly Game Creator, people of all ages will be able to create their very own webgames, with just a touch of imagination, and not a line...

  • Blog Post: Preparing for Perth

    I got into Perth this afternoon, and after a bite to eat, headed straight to the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre. What a great location. Of course, the sound, vision, technical, and events crews were still in the process of "bumping in" and I wondered over to the Auditorium, where the...
  • Blog Post: An amazing week for Mobility

    Well, when they said the announcements at Mix08 would blow us away, they weren't wrong.... I'm excited about all of the mobility announcements. It's clear that the Internet, Social Networking, and Gen "C" is combining and extending to the most portable platform we have available today. A summary...

    Anyone seen the IE8 Readiness Toolkit yet? I believe it's all about Web Slices... R 42
  • Blog Post: Sharepoint in SA (South Australia)

    Loving all the work that Daniel Brown and his compadre's are doing around Sharepoint in Adelaide. This month, apart from taking part in the Heroes Happen Launch (shameless plug), they're hosting a Networking Event at the Pasta Palace. If you are in Adelaide on the 18th March, and have anything at all...
  • Blog Post: Heroes Happen Launch - Take Two

    So I'm here at Melbourne with the second iteration of the Heroes Happens Launch, and if anything, I'm enjoying it more than Sydney. Last week I spent much of my time chatting to our MVP's, Usergroup Leaders and customers. And although I've been meeting heaps of people here too, I've taken the time out...
  • Blog Post: Impressions of a Launch Event

    This is not my first launch whilst working for Microsoft. There's been Windows Vista, Exchange 2007, and a while back the 2005 Ready Launch (Visual Studio 2005, SQL Server 2005). And Microsoft launches are certainly not new to me in my career. I was there way back when Windows for Workgroups 3.11 and...
  • Blog Post: Heroes Happen {Here}

    So I'm at the launch event, ready to rock, but I thought I'd blog (initially at least) on a slightly different spin to the launch of Windows, SQL, and Visual Studio 2008. That is interoperability with the Open Source Communities: We have a campaign for the heroes that work with Microsoft technologies...

  • Blog Post: Play Nicely Now

    I Love our generation. I Love the technology we work with, and I especially Love the Internet. One of the things I love is enabling people, connecting people. The implications of that over my career, has been to work with a heap of technologies: JCL, COBOL, Novell, WordPerfect, Windows for Workgroups...
  • Blog Post: Gb

    Or rather F#. Sorry, poor musician's joke, which doesn't translate, but Lucy my wife will get it. (she's a muso, not a geek) In my new role I've been starting to look around at dev technologies I can start playing around with again to bring me into dev conversations. There's not to many people I get...
  • Blog Post: Heading Out

    The time has come for our bi-annual TechReady event. This is a training conference hosted for Microsoft technical roles in Seattle. Typically each MS member gets to go to Seattle once a year, either in the Winter (now) or Summer (Jul/Aug). The conference itself is a huge event, hosted in Seattle to be...
  • Blog Post: Are you a Hero?

    The "2008 Wave Launch" aka Heroes Happen Here 2008, is almost upon us. There'll be Customer and Partner events at all of the major cities, beginning with Sydney at the end of February. However, I want to direct you to a greater happening, with a larger reach. The Heroes {Community} Launch....
  • Blog Post: BIGger and .NETter

    This evening I had the opportunity to meet the members of the Sydney .NET Usergroup , and the Brisbane Infrastructure Group . The first was through a happy misunderstanding, and I stepped in at the last minute to host the .NET Usergroup. This group has been run by Adam Cogan for (much) more than the...
