WinForms to the Web - AJAX style - now Open Source - Visual WebGui Platform
This is a compelling platform, if it works, and it’s now going open source in hope of garnering a greater number of developers contributing and using. The DotNetNuke folks have built a DNN administration console based upon this. - CORRECTION - Someone has built an Admin Console; not the DNN folks.... WinForms Over Web (the WOW model) is a revolutionary development & deployment platform made possible by a unique, patented, server based RIA paradigm. The WOW model enables development of rich ......

Download details: Microsoft ActiveX Analyzer Tool
Here’s a tool that will help out those webmasters that haven’t updated their pages to conform to the mandated change to IE’s handling of Object tags. Mind you that the plaintiff in this could care less that they’ve only hurt webmasters and users in this silly patent suit. The ActiveX Analyzer Tool is designed to scan for and identify object, applet, and embed tags in code. The utility will output the complete file path, line number, and literal script that the tag(s) reside ......

Good example of application that leverages WinFX (WPF - aka Avalon)
Here’s a good example of great use of what’s to come in WinFX (part of Vista; add-on to XP/2003). It’s an application that provides online/offline access to NY Times online. Not only using WPF, but WCF (I think) for synchronization. The New York Times to Enhance Online and Offline Reading Experience With Times Reader: New application uses Microsoft software to benefit readers ......

A terrabyte of storage for the home - no big deal anymore
It’s amazing how much storage you can have for relatively inexpensive cost with these new perpendicular storage drives. I’m thinking how I paid just as much for 10 MBs (that’s megabytes) that I can now get 75,000 times as much storage back around 1987. Wow, that’s a long time ago. Seagate Technology News Release Seagate Expands Desktop Hard Drive Lead with 750GB Monster Built on Perpendicular Recording Technology. With the introduction of Barracuda 7200.10 family, Seagate ......

NDepend has really been spiffed up!!
NDepend has been around for a while. The author of the tool has really done a great job with the 2.0 (in beta now) release. Very cool looking graphs, navigation panel, and query capabilities. If you’ve ever had to take someone elses crap code and need to figure out what’s going on, this is definitely a great aid. How does NDepend help me have a better understanding and control over my .NET code? NDepend analyses .NET assemblies of an application and generates reports containing design ......

Agile and the Jelling of Teams - Reminiscient of Peopleware
Only Passionate People Win : Make sure your team is jelled before starting Agile. This post is reminiscent of what the book Peopleware : Productive Projects and Teams emphasizes, and this goes back 7+ years with this edition (I don’t know when the 1st edition was published). Team dynamics is the foundation of longterm success. Sure on short projects you can beat the hell out of people to get it done; but, if you looking for something beyond that, you won’t get it unless you have a well ......

Why Limited NY/NJ Metro Code Camps
Code Camp Schedule. For being the most populated region in the country, it never ceases to amaze me the limited communal aspect of developers and things like code camps. It seems as if the NY/NJ metro region falls short in both hosting and providing .NET related conferences, etc. Honestly, coming from the state where the lightbulb was invented, AT&T labs, and all the high-tech over the years, It’s amazing. It’s time to start looking to move…. Preferably to a warmer climate. ......
