    One of the great things about TechEd …

    • 1 Comments
    One of the great things about Microsoft’s TechEd conference is the ability to meet different people. Before I began working for Microsoft, I was a consultant and the people I met at TechEd became invaluable sources of expert information. Now that I work for Microsoft, the people I meet at TechEd become invaluable sources of information about what our customers want and need. A case in point is this weeks Hey Scripting Guy! articles . I heard from several people that they wanted to be able to use Windows PowerShell to write scripts, but that they did not want to learn an entirely new way of doing things. They had VBScripts that worked, but they would like to convert them to Windows PowerShell so they would only have a single scripting environment. Well, you can certainly do that … it is possible...

    Author news: On co-authoring a book

    • 0 Comments
    Hello! Karl Wiegers here. I’m doing something right know that I’ve never done before: co-authoring a book. It’s a new experience for me, but it’s going remarkably well. I’ve written several articles with co-authors over the years, which went fine, but nothing like the scale of the book. If you’ve ever thought about writing something with someone else, you might find the story of how we approached this to be interesting. In August 2012 Joy Beatty, vice-president of research and development at Seilevel, asked me if I had thought about writing a third edition of my popular book Software Requirements . The first edition was published in 1999 and the second in 2003, both by Microsoft Press. I had indeed thought about writing a third edition from time to time...
