Editor Chages in Whidbey
Potentially lost in Andrews longer post on Whidbey changes for the ASP.NET developer, but deserving of special mention, is hte apility to collapse and expand HTML code. So, imagine a long page with a number of tables. If you are looking at just one table in particular, you can collapse all of the others and just concentrate on the one you want. The same logic applies to collapsing TD or TH elements (showing just the one you are interested in). This is a huge help in visualizing the structure of the page. I can't wait to be able to deploy these apps (ScottGu, if you are listening, any word on a GoLive license<g>).

Open source citizenship
On the world stage, both failures and successes can loom larger than in the corporate cubicle. Developers who plug into the reputation-driven meritocracy of open source -- while advancing the goals of your business -- are a force to be reckoned with. [InfoWorld: Open source citizenship: October 24, 2003] This column was based on the observation that corporate IT shops are apparently more likely to fork an open source project for internal development and use, than to join and contribute to the project. Some correspondents were puzzled by my comments on licensing, so I'll try to clarify. The open source licensing regime, as Tim O'Reilly has often pointed out, has as its basis the distribution of source code. As we move to a service-oriented software ecosystem, that basis will necessarily erode. If a GPL'd module is copied, modified, and then deployed behind a firewall to power a service that's world-accessible and free (as in 'free beer'), then am I as a user of that service free ...

PDC 2003 Harvester is now up and running!
Following my most recent post, I have now uploaded the PDC 2003 Harvester to my web server. PDC Harvester includes links to the notes taken by those guys attending PDC sessions, personal opinions on the subjects covered and slides/demos for the sessions where applicable. This can be very helpful for those people who are not in the PDC. Even you have attended a session, it is nice to see how the other people (whether or not they attended the session) think about it. I have tried to include as much resources as possible. If you know of any other stuff that is not already there, please let me know. Also please let me know if you encounter any problems (i.e. broken links, etc). Coming soon (Wednesday evening - GMT!): RSS Feed for the PDC Harvester!I will move the database to SQL Server very soon so please be patient if performance is not acceptable ;)

PDC - Day 1 (Monday)
Well I finally made to PDC after spending 8 hours in the SEATAC airport. I got into LA at 7 PM. While the plane was about to land in LA, I could see the fires below. Wow! My heart goes out to the folks who last their home - over 1500 now! So… day one at PDC. I cannot believe how large PDC is this year! It's seems like every professional developer in the world has come to see Microsoft latest tools and technology. Some sessions were so popular, it was standing room only for the monitor in the hall way! I got a front row seat for Bill Gates keynote speech. As always, his presentation / demos went off without a hitch. I really enjoyed Jim Allchin's talk. In one of the demos, Don Box and Chris Anderson had Jim write some code. At one point, Jim opened the file that Don had been typing lots of code into and it was blank! Luckily, Jim had open the wrong file. Once he realized his mistake, he opened up the correct file and the code was there. Both Don and Chris both let out a big sigh of ...

Visual C# Whidbey Enhancements
My notes from the Visual C# Whidbey Enhancements session: “Whidbey” will deliver support for generics, clickonce, and “Yukon” and more... “Orcas” will deliver native support for Avalon, Indigo, WinFS and WinFX New C# IDE features: IDE colorizes classes , methods, enums etc. Generics will be supported in the Whidbey framework on a limited number of types C# code expansions rocks! type “prop“ without the quotes and hit TAB and it'll be expanded to the get/set property syntax you can create your own code expansion templates using a defined XML schema The IDE now automatically implements interfaces (using smarttags) and this allows implicit or explicit implementation of that interface Refactoring support Rename method will allow you to rename a method in your solution and it'll rename the method and all calling code - this is not a simple search and replace. Extract method will allow you to extract a block of code from a method give the block of code a method name and, based on the ...

Microsoft has its act together this time
I didn't go to the 2000 PDC. I stayed on the sidelines and watched the news trickle back. That sucked. Microsoft was not prepared to involve the rest of the developer community. Details were sketchy. Code names changed at the last minute so it was impossible to search for information. MSDN online was a joke at the time. There was no coherent message coming from Microsoft. This PDC is different. Microsoft is doing an amazing job. I've got access to more information than I ever expected. I did not expect the SDK to go live the day of the keynote. Hell I didn't expect it to go live for another 6 months. The MSDN team should be proud. The Microsoft marketing team should be proud. You guys are doing a great job including us poor bastards who can't attend. Now for my one gripe. You guys need to get the bits up on MSDN downloads sooner rather than later. That is supposed to be the point of MSDN subscriptions - early access to Microsoft technologies and information. I'm glad you are ...

PDC Monday morning: "it's Windows, but it sucks less"
Longhorn: it's Shiny. Like really shiny - not only is Avalon replete with a set of (visual) bells and whistles that would make MacOS X curl up with an extreme case of inadequacy, but the other two major pillars of WinFx (the Longhorn API) also exhibit significant Shiny-ness: WinFS, possibly the component which (pre-show) attracted the biggest comprehension gap, was shown in its true colors as a rework of the "metadata is all" concepts first surfaced in the BeOS but with additional funkiness: the BeOS never allowed you to add new metadata to the surface of a FS entity on the fly like LH allows - the term Allchin used for this was "metadata painting". Speaking of Allchin, you've not lived until you've watched a group vice-president (Allchin owns Platforms, which means that he has ultimate responsibility for what goes into Windows - what you'd expect to be a fairly PHB role) go head to head with Don Box on the latter's preference for emacs (Allchin's apparently a vi man) and then ...

PDC Monday
I have not been making as many posts lately as I should, so I will be making a few posts today combined into one… I got into LA late Sunday night. I waited in long lines at the ticket counter and (because I forgot my keys in my pocket) I spent a lot of time being searched by security, but I was lucky. Because of the fires many people had trouble getting here, and I know of a few who drove from Seattle to LA. One woman in the VS group, whose plane had been delayed over and over, finally got an alternate plane out. Unfortunately her luggage was on a different plane. The PDC Expo came to the rescue, though. Almost every booth was handing out T-Shirts, so she now has enough to wear until her luggage arrives. I did see the fires from the plane, I want to almost say they looked “cool”, but people have been loosing their homes and even their lives, so I don’t think that is the right way to describe it. The wireless setup has been very convenient. Wi-Fi is setup at the conference (for ...

Good things happening with Hurricane
Hurricane seems to be getting a decent amount of interest....the Academics we have with us out in LA seem very interested in the SDK, as do a couple of American .NET Student Ambassadors (the paid equivalent of an MSP/MVS) and also some open source portal people (Rainbow, DotNetNuke, IBuySpy) were very impressed with our work. It appears we have hit a new piece of the market with Hurricane as the 3 current "big" players in the .NET portal market are very much focused on the enterprise and business arena and don't address the entry-level/student group who want to set up portals for their communities and use it also to learn .NET. That being said, we still haven't got a community built on Hurricane - although I am hoping that will change in the coming weeks. Call To Action: If you read my blog and are interested in using Hurricane in some form, please leave a comment for me and I'll get back to you :)
