Today, I took part to the Microsoft Open Days
event in Paris for and by MVP, MVS/MSP (Microsoft Student Partner), and user group members.
I gave a presentation about SharpToolbox and .NET tools
, with a focus on some tools and tool categories like .NET Reflector, FxCop, software factories and CruiseControl.NET, code generation and Codesmith, object-relational mapping.
You'll find a link to the Powerpoint document below, but of course it is in French.
Aujourd'hui, j'ai participé à la journée des communautés Microsoft (OpenDays) à Paris pour et par les MVP, MVS, et groupes d'utilisateurs.
C'était sympathique de rencontrer les autres membres de ces clubs très select ;-)
J'ai trouvé les sessions intéressantes et l'ambiance conviviale. J'ai aussi apprécié l'esprit critique des intervenants. Non, ce ne sont pas de gentils petits soldats de Microsoft :-)

I have added a suggestion for the .NET framework or the C#/VB.NET compilers in the MSDN Product Feedback Center: "Add a paraminfo keyword to get information on parameters
Basically, the idea is to be able to write paraminfo(someparam).Name and paraminfo(someparam).Value to access to information about a parameter at runtime inside a method.
What do you think about this idea? You can vote for this suggestion if you find it interesting...
Don't you think this is a nice bell curve, with a short tail?
These are the stats for a page I put in place about the TransAtlantys hoax, an advertisement campaign based on viral marketing, which claimed a tunnel and train was being built under the Antlantic Ocean
. This was just a campaign from a travel company to sell airline tickets from Paris to New-York!
I think it was an interesting experiment and shows how quickly viral marketing takes on the internet. The first day, there was no result from Google about this hoax; two days after, 16,000; and now more than 100,000. The traffic quickly reduced starting on June 3, because this is the day when the hoax was revealed on the official site. You can also see "holes" during the week-ends (4-5 and 11-12).
What's nice is that my page is ranked number 2, just after the official site :-)
If you've been reading this weblog for some time, you may remember that I wrote about a web hosting solution with ASP.NET support
. This is just a note to let you know that they now propose from 1000MB to 3000MB of disk space
and from 2000MB to 3000MB of SQL Server space
for the same price!
They also recently upgraded their mail system (POP and IMAP) with features like SSL, SPAM protection, virus protection, and more.
Ah, and they have ASP.NET 2.0 beta...
I definitely invite you to take a look at them
I know a lot of people come here searching for information about certain release dates, well here is it a last: SQL Server 2005, Visual Studio 2005 and BizTalk Server 2006 will be formally launched during the week of November 7
Not much more to add. See the press release
right from Tech•Ed 2005.
