Contents tagged with ASP.NET
Now that I have my site working pretty well, I'm now going to do all of my blog posts over there (http://agramont.net/). I tried the cross-posting thing using the built-in features of Community Server (CS2 with ASP.NET 2), but it felt weird having the same content on two sites. From time to time, I'll post on this site a summary of the new content on my new site.
For now, I'm focusing the blog post on Hosting, ASP.NET, IIS, Hosted Exchange, Microsoft Provisioning System, and, Community Server..
New Blog URL: http://agramont.net/blogs/conrad/default.aspx
Summary of New Content:
- IIS Webcast Review: Using Host Headers with SSL-enabled Web Sites in IIS 6.0
- HMC 3.5 Feature Pack – Did you know
- HMC 3.5: Outlook Enabling featureName has changed
Today is the first day that Agramont.net (http://agramont.net) is available on the Internet! I've had the domain for quite some time, but never really had the time to get it together. With thanks to the Community Server team (for their product), I now have the site up and running.
About the site:
- ASP.NET 2.0
- Community Server 2.0 for ASP.NET 2.0 (Express for now)
- Used website template (only pieces) purchased on TemplateMonster.com
- Ads are driven by Google Adsense
- Added the site to Google Via Google Sitemaps
- Traffic reporting is done via Google Analytics
- Shared hosting site via ASPnix (IIS6/SQL Server 2005 64-bit)
I plan to produce a fair amount of content for this site, but mostly through my blog. My blog is still currently posted on weblogs.asp.net, but I plan to use this site to most the majority of my blogs and do crossposting over to the weblogs.asp.net site.
From time to time, I write a bunch of protoype applications and tools and they just sit on my home development machine wasting away. So I plan to share a bunch of that on this site.
I have a few ideas on some other websites, so this is just a start at running my own public websites and content.
With that said, I'm still working with Service Provider/Hosters customers around the globe while working for Planet Technologies (http://www.go-planet.com/). With so much coming down the road from Microsoft (IIS 7, Exchange 12, Office Servers), I have a lot to learn and share with all of you.
The first Beta of the MPS SDK is available for download. Here is a link to the Microsoft Download:
I’m not sure what’s going on with the branding of this, but the following names all seem to point to the same thing:
- Microsoft Solution for Windows-Based Hosting for Applications 1.0
- Microsoft Provisioning System SDK

It appears that the “one off” website started by the ASP.NET team in Microsoft (http://www.asp.net/) is catching on. Recenlty, the IIS team has released a new site solely focused on just that product. It includes links to information around the web and some videos. Very interesting.
Here is a list of some of these sites:
- ASP.NET – http://www.asp.net (blogs: http://weblogs.asp.net/, Atlas: http://atlas.asp.net/)
- IIS – http://www.iis.net/
- Exchange (blog) - http://msexchangeteam.com/
Anyone else know of some other of these Microsoft "One Off's". And by one off, I don't mean a site hung off of a "traditional MS Property" (e.g. MSDN)
I should also mention the CodePlex as well (http://www.codeplex.com/) which is a rebirth of GotDotNet. Another Microsoft site that's ran separately.
As of today, we (Planet Technologies) are now offering an HMC 3.5 Bootcamp and MPS Developer Training at our training facility in Maryland. We have all of the labs (built on Virtual Server) and equipment ready to go. All you need to do is register and come get your brain jammed with Hosted Exchange, MPS, Active Directory, and lots more. The training class is less of a PowerPoint and Step-by-Step collection of labs, but is very interactive with whiteboard discussions, scenario based lab time, and learnings from real world deploymets! Did I mention the quality Foosball Table?
Scott Allen has good post that provides a basic overview of why any Service Provider that is offering ASP.NET (specifically 2.0) as a service, should make Medium Trust as the default for all websites.
Recently, Microsoft shipped "Microsoft Visual Studio Express Editions" (VWD) and have made them freely available for one year. You can download it here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/vstudio/express/vwd/download/
I guess I'll join the trend of puting job postings on a blog. We're growing our development team at eQuest and we're looking for that special person that loves to develop web applications, server side components, and a touch lots of different Microsoft products and technologies. If you're expereienced in MPS architecture, engineering, and/or development and want to work with a team of MPS experts, than this is youre future home!
This is a collection of Microsoft Webcasts in various areas. This is not a complete list, but a good start.
So it's been just over a year now that I've actively been blogging and doing lots around communities and forums. For the most part, I focus on topics related to providing Hosted Services with the Microsoft Platform. This includes things like Hosted Exchange, Windows base Hosting (aka Windows Web Hosting), and the Microsoft Provisioning System.
