Yep, I know. It's been a while seen I posted something. I've been soooooooo busy.
I presented a Web security talk at two local user groups in February then I had to prepare to deliver the VS 2005 and SQL Server 2005 Ascend training. I gave that course in February in Vancouver and last week in Montreal. This Ascend is a week long lecture with no hands on labs; basically me talking a whole week! It goes like this:
Day 1: intro, new BCL stuff, new ADO.NET stuff
Day 2: all ASP.NET
Day 3: all Smart Client
Day 4: new dev stuff in SQL Server
Day 5: overview of the new BI capabilities in SQL Server
I'm scheduled to deliver this again in Toronto sometimes in April and again in Vancouver in May. The nice folks at ObjectSharp are putting this together in Canada for Microsoft. BTW, they are all sold out.
In the meantime, I will be talking about interop between Java and .NET for MSDN Canada next week at our local user group.
Today was a lazy day. I haven't played Xbox for a while so I bought SW Republic Commando and played for a few hours. My brain cells were happy for this well deserve break.
