After nearly 7 years I will discontinue blogging on this site. My resources are limited. You can reach my German blog which is used to support my customers. Looking back to a long an interesting journey
ASP.NET by ScottGu
That was the reason to attend this site and support Microsoft as much as I can. For that I was honored as ASP.NET MVP- thanks again. Meet Scoot several times. Great guy!
I have left NNTP forums a few years ago and now Microsoft closed it- It was my idea ;-)
Was the wrong way- JQuery won the game
That is really a great plattform and the IIS team rules. I am sad that is so silent around that topic.
ASP.NET after 2.0
Is no longer my world. I love ASP.NET and ASP.NET Server controls. I hate the discussion about how to follow the holy rules of MVC. Microsoft have dropped the goal to bring ASP.NET to #1 and accepted PHP is it.
Facebook & Twittering
Microblogging takes over a part of the blogging business. Shorter faster cheaper- or as SteveB mentioned - do more with less.
Google is taking over the web. I am using Bing every time as I can but Google have more options. Sorry Microsoft you will loose that game.
That is not the biggest problem of Microsoft. the Ixxx takes over a small part but big money of the market, but the customers are not strongly linked. New wave new hype- Game over Apple.
My new home. I can reuse a lot of my skills and love the possibilitys. Silverligth will passing WPF-and strike Flash
Windows phone 7
Also my skills fit. I just will use it for fun. I am not really satisfied about what I have heard from MIX. Guys from Redmond, I am sad to say you have been the best Smartphone OS and lost everything.
The ADO vNext Story
That will be the next mystic point. WCF, REST, JSON, ATOM and now OData. Nothing about SQL commands. LINQ, ORM is also not the final solution for multilayered disconnected async scenarios. Personally I prefere the OData idea and dislike the Swiss Army Knife (German Eierlegende Wollmilchsau) WCF.
I am still in INETA Speakers board and I am glad to come to your user group. In all other cases you can hire me over ppedv AG.
Good by and have good live.
