  • Blog Post: WS's and Longhorn

    Charles Cooper of CNET has an interesting take on Longhorn and Web Services. Ok, so he says that big companies aren't abandoning ship on J2EE just because Ballmer says .NET is better... But in fact, if you look at the toolset provided by VS.net, developing Web Services with .NET is far easier than...
  • Blog Post: .NET 18K Checkup

    Software Development Times has a check-up article about .NET .
  • Blog Post: (re)Look at TMC Performance Data

    Christophe  points out that TMC re-released its famed report on J2EE vs .NET performance. So, after months and months of re-engineering and getting the “blessing” of the Java community (after a review of what they were doing, massive reconfigurations on their part, etc), .NET still ends up beating or...

  • Blog Post: WSE 2.0 Rocks!

    In the midst of  Keith Ballinger 's talk on WSE 2.0. Good stuff!! Can't wait for it to come out. Two new namespaces (maybe more): - Microsoft.Web.Services.Addressing - Microsoft.Web.Services.Messaging
  • Blog Post: Changing CPUs != Getting Laid

    Great talk! Don Box mentions in his talk that "people who get laid don't change CPUs in their PCs"... But besides this witty comment, Don's talk was great. He overviewed lessons learned from past and current technologies. He compares how objects revolutioned programming to how integrated circuits...
  • Blog Post: Day 1 of 2 @ Applied XML Developer's Conference

    After a long flight because of delays out of New York, I got to Portland, OR really late last night. Today's the first day of the Applied XML Developer's Conference .

  • Blog Post: The long awaited Imagine Cup Press Release!

UPDATE #1: Here's another link to the same press release at the Microsoft website. UPDATE #2: Here's yet another...

    I'd like to thank George Tsiokos for adding me to the SourceForge project for the RSS.NET implementation . I'll be adding some new features to RSS.NET in the upcoming days, so I'll be writing about those soon too. Personally, I hope that this implementation becomes one of the definitive implementations...
  • Blog Post: Applied XML Conference

    Coming soon to a theather near [only a flight away from] you... the Applied XML Conference , July 10-11, 2003. "Not only were there 4x the number of sessions submitted that could be accepted, but the quality bar was so high that it was almost impossible to narrow them down. The good news for attendees...
  • Blog Post: More info on the International Imagine Cup...

    So today I found out that for the International Competition we are allowed to make updates as per the judges remarks that they made after the judging was over. I think this is really great. Many of the things that the judges suggested to me I was planning on adding. As it stands right now, I'll probably...
  • Blog Post: Reactions to the day...

    The response to my announcement with regards to being the winner of the Imagine Cup 2003 competition is absolutely phenomenal. My inbox was filled with a ton of "congrats" emails.

Microsoft is having this Imagine Cup 2003 competition on XML Web Services for college undergraduates and graduates.

  • Blog Post: Ok, I hate to do this but...

    I feel really bad doing this... but my Outlook XP decided to corrupt my PST file the other night so I lost most of mail except for a month old backup. Anyway, a while ago I asked if anyone wanted to beta test or add any features to the Photo Album WS that I'm writing. Two people responded; one I lost...
  • Blog Post: Odd error in consuming Web Service

    Ok, this is really wierd. In my Photo Album Admin application I call the Photo Album WS. For one of the many web-methods in the WS, I get the following error: An unhandled exception of type 'System.Web.Services.Protocols.SoapException' occurred in system.web.services.dll Additional information...
  • Blog Post: More updates planned for the Photo Album WS

    Last night I wrote a little test app to add copyright/watermarking to a photo. I've wanted to add this to the Photo Album for some time so that those web users who want to steal photos from my website would have this ugly copyright text on the photo. I guess now this is a bit irrelevant since I don't...

    There has been some interest by some out there in my Photo Album WS. As promised, I would delve into this into a bit more detail today. Q: Will it be available? A: Yes, it will be available "soon". If you're interested in helping me test it, please send me an email and we can set something up. ...
  • Blog Post: Always something with memory management...

    I've been working on this Photo Album Web Service for some time now. I started it about a year ago, and then I stopped working on it last May when I went to intern at Microsoft on the Windows team. So, I decided that I'd finally pick it up again and start updating it. First order of business was upgrading...
