Great news! The entry by the Toronto VB User Group (TVBUG) won the MSDN Canada-sponsored .NET Usergroups competition in Canada-wide judging tonight. The challenge was to create a .NET solution incorporating mobile devices, smart systems, Web services, and a database that would "improve the quality of developer life".
Our team, headed by Tony Cavaliere, created PocketBuilder. It's a VB.NET application that monitors nightly software builds and alerts the owners of modules as to errors their code produced.
The whole event was a geek's dream. First, we created entries using the latest Microsoft technologies. This evening, the participating user groups were connected from their respective cities via LiveMeeting to watch the presentations and vote for the best.
