    ComputersIt is surprising how close together VB.NET and C#.NET are as programming languages. Each uses the Microsoft .NET Framework. The classes are addressed identically with intellisense working on both.  The most obvious differences are the way code blocks are broken, as C# is a curly brace language.

    In an earlier Forum Post, SharpDevelop (#develop) - .NET GUI IDE FREE!, there are notes about a free tool called SharpDevelop.

    ComputersMicrosoft Windows Server 2008, Microsoft SQL Server 2008, Microsoft Visual Studio 2008

    On April Fools day 2008, I attended the traveling launch show for Microsoft Windows 2008, SQL Server 2008, and Visual Studio 2008. I already watched the online sessions in the virtual launch at the site, so I had some insight as to what to expect. This show had an improvement over the previous Visual Studio and Windows releases at the Minneapolis Convention center. This time the vendor display was off the main level and moved down to Hall A in the lower level. This kept it much more low key and less like a circus.
    Some reasons we gave up Lotus Notes in favor of Outlook

    ComputersOne our very large (Fortune 500) customers just transitioned to Outlook 2003 from Lotus Notes 6.5 as an e-mail calendaring application. This is a significant development, since Outlook/Exchange is not really a groupware collaboration tool like Lotus Notes. Lotus Notes is a database tool that has advanced e-mail functionality. But, because of acquisitions, the corporation has discovered that as an e-mail and calendar tool, Outlook beats Lotus Notes. The company will still have both because there are a number of Lotus Notes databases that will never go away.

    Warning: Geekfest alert!

    You may or may not recognize this, but if you worked on an IBM PS/2 or 5250 terminal in the early 90's, it came with a very heavy duty keyboard called the "model M". It was distinguished by a very positive response and loud click. The keyboard uses "buckling spring (BS) technology " to give that distinct feel and sound.

    ComputersI became aware of YouTube after receiving a link to a video of the 2006 NCAA Basketball Gonzaga / UCLA final seconds taken by a band member. YouTube is hosting these videos at no cost for members, sort of like Flikr for file sharing. YouTube is currently trying to do the same thing that iFilm did, get bought out in a venture capital deal. YouTube has something going for it right now, it is hosting video that may be copyrighted. But it is not aggressively removing those materials. So there are a lot of cool things to be seen.
    SQL Server 2005 - Visual Studio 2005 - BizTalk Server 2006 Launch Part V

    Here is the fifth, and final, part in a series from my notes taken at the Visual Studio 2005/SQL Server 2005/BizTalk 2006 launch.

    BizTalk 2006 was invited to the November 2005 launch party, but the actual release will be some time in 1st quarter 2006.

    Microsoft BizTalk Server is a Business Process Management Server by Microsoft that allows software applications to communicate for Enterprise application integration. BizTalk allows businesses to visually model their internal, external and inter-business processes. Try to think of BizTalk as plumbing. This plumbing carries text between participants. This text is actually XML (or 'eXtensible Markup Language'). The participants could be companies, components, applications, parts of an operating system or just about anything which needs access to data. Just as plumbing has an entry and exit point into buildings or containers.

    Here is the fourth part in a series from my notes taken at the Visual Studio 2005/SQL Server 2005/BizTalk 2006 launch.

    This covers one of the breakout sessions titled Visual Studio Developer Tools. It was presented by Mike Benkovich. Mike had hosted the Introduction to Web development with Visual Studio 2005 that I attended in Eden Prairie in July 2005.

    Mike has a web page: where he has posted code samples.

    Here is the second part in a series from my notes taken at the Visual Studio 2005/SQL Server 2005/BizTalk 2006 Launch. In Part I, I talked about the opening demos, keynote address and primary product features.

    With the opening keynote hype out of the way, I thought we would settle into the practical details of the new technology. I will try to convey what I saw based upon my copious notes. I did not exactly understand all of it, as it was a lot of information coming very quickly. Before that, let me throw out some more hype that was given to us at the end of the session.

    Even though this event has already run in cities across the United States, it was still exciting when it came to the Minneapolis convention center. On a very snowy day, something like 3,000 attendees braved lousy traffic to get downtown. I took plenty of notes and hope to type them all out for Group29. The SQL Server 2005 (code named “Yukon”) and Visual Studio 2005 (code named “Whidbey”) are finally here and ready for action.

    ASP.NET 2.0 - Introduction to Web Development with Visual Studio 2005

    In July, I was able to see the Visual Studio Team System 2005 features at an all day introduction class.

    Here is a link to that article.

    Yesterday I attended a seminar introducing web application programming for ASP.NET 2.0. The development tool was Visual Studio 2005. We used the Team system version, but did not cover Team System specific features. The development tool has tools that allow access to IIS and SQL Server directly without having to use their MMC plugins.  Here is what I saw that has made me excited for the new release.
    AJAX vs. CORBA? Delivering info to your browser

    ComputersAJAX is an acronym for Asynchronous JavaScript + XML for web development

    On the latest version of Microsoft's Technology Incubation Page They advertise that they are looking for AJAX Developers. It stands to reason because two of the most interesting web applications today are Google GMAIL and Google Maps which use AJAX programming methods. The Google Map page is an interesting example of an AJAX application. You can drag the map and new pictures fill in, but your never see the browser making the requests.

    ComputersIn the world of software development, the Microsoft Visual Studio tools have always been seen as market leaders or strong competitors at the very least. When Microsoft applies itself diligently to developing a system, the result is often a crushing blow to many other hyped technologies. (Not to talk like I have a stomach full of the Kool-Aid, but working with these technologies certainly pays the bills.)

    ComputersHere are some notes from Microsoft's Worldwide Partner Conference at the Minneapolis Convention Center over the weekend of July 9-11, 2005 (see The conference started on Thursday and went through Sunday afternoon. Needless to say there was a very healthy dose of propaganda from Microsoft. Overall it was a good conference as things are always changing with Microsoft. Steve Balmer's presentation alone was worth the price of admission. The conference had about 10,000 people in attendance (6,500 partners and 3,500 Microsoft employees). Over half the partners were from outside the United States. Anyway, here are a few of the conference highlights:

    ComputersA new class of PCs are finally becoming available to the general public. The have been anticipated so long, they have been dismissed as vaporware. They are small form factor PCs, basically 5x 5 x 1 and weighing less than 1 pound. They are full blown Personal computers, with 1Ghz processors , 800x600 screens, Windows XP operating systems (not Windows CE), 10-30GB hard drives, USB, sound and network capabilities.

    They are bigger than a HPC, PDA, or hiptop, but smaller than either a laptop, or tablet PC.

    This class of pc are so new, they have not settled on a common name.
