Last week I had the privilege to spend 5 days in Arosa, Switzerland, among a group of people who were way more smarter than I am, for the annual Software Architecture Workshop (SAW). The SAW in Europe is an initiative of Jimmy Nilsson, and uses the Open Spaces methodology to let the participants discuss all kinds of topics during a set of parallel tracks. This year, the organization was done by Beat Schwegler of Microsoft. From the Netherlands, Paul Gielens, Arjen Poutsma (of Spring framework fame) and myself were present. The SAW is an invite only event.
I was unhappily surprised this morning when I compiled a new build of an assembly and changed the assembly file version attribute from 2.0.0.061005 to 2.0.0.070105: I got this wicked warning from the C# compiler:
warning CS1607: Assembly generation -- The version '2.0.0.070105' specified for the 'file version' is not in the normal 'major.minor.build.revision' format
First of all: Happy New Year!
