The day started off well. Sara picked me up at home around 11:30 and took me to the airport. Being the AR type, I always try to get there about 2 hours early. As usual, I was glad I did. There aren't many things in this world more entertaining than folks who are running late for a flight, blaming everyone but themselves and trying to take it out on folks who just do not give a damn. I show up two hours early, check in, let them search my checked luggage, get in line... no hurry. Open my backpack, ...
Greater Charleston .NET User GroupOur June meeting is a *mere* 6 days away...

We'll also be handing out a bunch of copies of Visual Studio 2005 Team System BETA 2 DVD SET We have some GREAT drawings this month, including books from Addison Wesley, MS Press and more. We aren't having a “members only” drawing this month... so our big item will be open to ...
After discovering that “Error 32000: xxxxxx” is basically a general catch-all error and can literally mean a multitude of different things I decided to blow away the VMWARE server and start again and re-install a la text book. No work ‘a-rounds’, second guessing, short cuts, just following the installation guide to the letter and guess what! It installed this time without a hitch! So what is my prognosis? If you get an “Error 32000: xxxx blah” message you haven’t ...
I've been dumping this to Outlook and my PDA all morning... too much cool stuff, not enough time...

Today I spend part of it installing Microsoft latest version of SQL Server 2005 Enterprise April CTP and the Team System Server BETA 2 installing a vanilla Windows 2003 Enterprise server (of course with all the packs and security updates) sitting under VMWARE GSX 3.1. I’ve installed SQL Server 2005 twice before and this time was the easiest installation, went this time without a hitch, the only prerequisite this time was the addition of Windows Installer 3.1, which will require the installation ...
I went this week to the VSNET 2005 ASCEND event at Microsoft Campus in Redmond, WA, after attending the introductory presentations I decided to go to the Tools & Integration track, this track was about the new Visual Studio Team System Beta 2 and I was greatly impressed for its unique features. These are the highlights : - This is a fully integrated suite of productivity tools to enforce the best practices of software development, it is integrated with Visual Basic .NET and also with Office 2003, ...
For those of you attending the presentations on Team System yesterday... Here are the resources I spoke of: Books Introducing Microsoft® Visual Studio® 2005 Team System Beta Edition Test-Driven Development in Microsoft .NET Agile and Iterative Development: A Manager's Guide Integrating Agile Development in the Real World Directory of folks currently blogging about Team System (courtesy of Rich Hundhausen) ...
Well the buzz from Atlanta Code Camp is starting to wear off a bit and let me just say I had a great time. My presentation (GDI+) went very well, with lots of questions (although overall I think the Charlotte one went a tiny bit smoother on my end). I also caught some great presentations on free .NET tools and the Enterprise Library. My two absolute favorites of the day were on Speech Server and Programming Windows Media Center (with a healthy dose of home automation). Oh how I wish those two guys ...

We are hitting the road again and visiting 5 Canadian cities with the Visual Studio 2005 (Beta 2) tour. The coolest thing is that this time around, it is a combined tour with TechNet (SQL Server 2005 content). So, it's a full day of training for FREE. This is probably your last chance to see VS 2005 before it launches. Please see below for more information. If you are attending, please note you have to register separately for the two events: MSDN (afternoon) http://www.msdn.microsoft.c... ...

Today I was at the spring MSDN Technet brief in Rotterdam, a free event that you can attend, where Microsoft and partners get you up to speed on the goings on, and where you can follow some interesting sessions and labs.The Keynote, given my MS' Tony Krijnen (exellent speaker) of course focused on the bran-spanking-new SP1 release for Windows Server 2003, which was last night released as RTM, aswell as going into some depth on the x64 versions of MS products that are also RTM as of today. No mention ...
I do not blame Microsoft for their pricing strategy on Team System. After all, you can't pay for a Pinto and get a new Cadillac. Why would you expect otherwise? Well, that is the problem. This was what we were expecting. We were not told that it was a five year development effort costing millions of dollars but we should have known. We were not told (well, Eric Sink DID warn us along with a few others) that VSTS was not a copetitor to Microsoft Project, Vault, and FogBugz but a competitor to Rational ...
This is the inaugural post for my new web log on geekswithblogs.net. Expect upcoming posts on agile technologies and processes such as continuous integration, MSF Agile, test driven development. I'll also post on other technologies such as Microsoft's upcoming Visual Studio Team System and their recently released Enterprise Library. Along with these technical concerns I'll rant and rave about political, social and economic beefs and I'll share experiences with being a new Dad of 2 - Austin an 18 ...
Bob Mixon pointed out MoonEdit on his blog. Had an hour of fun with this application. I think it has a lot of potential. Technology similar to this is something I would prefer to have in the next version of Visual Studio (I havent checked out 2005 or Team System yet). But imagine the new twist this capability will give to Pair Programming. Ok Pair Programming might not have been the best example. but there would naturually be quite a productivity boom by 'peer-to-peer-ifying' collaborative application ...
Just came back from Microsoft TechNet and MSDN road show. Although I missed SQL Server BI and CLR Session but I was able to catch up with ASP.NET 2.0 and Microsoft Team System sessions. It was good to be there but honestly i dint enjoy much of asp.net 2.0 talk. Speaker wasnt confident and he kept making mistakes while developing a simple master detail form. The audience dint also like much seeing speaker having trouble showing hands on code. I believe the speaker was short of practice/practical exposure. ...
We had our first Day of .NET in Columbus, Ohio this past Friday. It was a great success and a lot of fun! We had right around 100 attendees and the room was packed. Check out the pictures here. I delivered my “Building Web Services” presentation. I decided to not use slides this time since our sessions were only about 50 minutes in length. The presentation goes through the concept of a SOAP envelope and shows how the protocols compose together by starting with a basic ASMX service and ...

We had really nice sessions today at our Seminar by Microsoft at NED University of Engineering and Technology, Karachi. The event started with a Qiraat by our user group member followed by the first presentation by Mr. Vaqar Khamisani who is a Developer Evangelist (DE) and Independent Software Vendor (ISV) Manager for Microsoft Pakistan. He talked about various activities by Microsoft in Pakistan. Some of the upcoming event are ISV Community days and MSDN Week. He also gave the audience a brief review ...

So yesterday I finally got hold of the May 2004 Community TechPreview of VS 2005 and installed it in VPC. Its looks good and quite stable over the March edition. Plus, I see support for Quality, Performance and more... I want to try ClickOnce... it was broken in the March edition. Will update on that. Also, this version has support for Visual Studio Team System that has been creating waves. Will keep updated on that as well. And lots more is happening that's keeping me busy. I was on MSDN Yatra (the ...
Roy has made a “retort” to a “retort” that I posted a while back. Here is the comment that I left for Roy at his blog: On the fact that C3, even though cancelled should be considered a success. The cancellation was due to the fact that they couldn't deliver the goods. If Beck and company want to call that a success, then more power to them. If it walks like a duck and talks like a duck, well you know the rest. On the definition of tools. Operating systems, programming languages, ...
