November 2004 - Posts
The Ireland .NET Developers Alliance (a new .NET User Group in Ireland, member of INETA Europe) is running the first .NET coding party in Ireland.
Pascal Leloup is very active with his .NET group :-) Maybe other user groups will follow with a .NET coding party!
Joel Pobar has an interesting blog about CLR Generics and code sharing:
X86 code is shared with reference types, with value types a "partial specialization" is used.
Christian Weyer, member of the INETA Europe speakers bureau gives a presentation to the .NET User group IRISHDEV.com.
Event date: 16-Dec-2004
Christian will discuss what went wrong with Web services over the last few years and how to live a good .NET developer live :-)
He is the author of the tool WSContractFirst and has a lot to say about doing it right with Web Services.
Yesterday I've given a demonstration of Microsoft CRM.
In special I like the customizability of this tool. It's very easy to change the forms, add and remove fields to adapt this application to a business process (instead of adapting a business process to a tool).
For complete customizability Microsoft CRM offers a wide range of Web services to integrate other solutions.
Krysztof Cwalina blogged about new naming guidelines for generic types.
The BCL team considers remaning several of the BCL generic types. Some provisional examples:
Votes are still counted. There's a long discussion on Ladybug.
My personal vote would be as it was defined with Beta 1 - EventHandler<T>, Dictionary<K, V>. But I guess this is because of my C++ background.
With INETA Europe now more than 100 .NET user groups are registered!
The latest additions:
The first group in Romania - RONUG - was #100!
Here is my list from September.
