July 2003 - Posts
After some work I ported my portal to version 1.1 of the .NET Framework. The
only change related to the update of the frameework was due to XSLT and the
usage of a deprecated method. Cool.
I also added some new functionnalities like RSS feed for Articles, How Tos
and News. Thanks to the RSS library from AdamKinney. There are also new features from
the administration side like the possibilities to post news from an InfoPath
Now it is time for testing before going live with it.
I am currently working on a new version of my site: Tech Head Brothers. This new version will use the .NET
Framework 1.1. I am facing some difficulties because I had hardcoded some stuff
in the code before. I know thats BAD, really BAD. But sometimes when you don't
have that much time you do ugly things.
I also installed all the environment that will let my brother work with me.
Windows 2003 Server with VPN, VSS... We gave a try on GotDotNet workspace but
that was not as good as we thought in our case, so we will retry
Now I got a real place where I can post! Christophe contact me if you wanna know where it is ;-)
So today I attended an interesting presentation "WEB290: Web service discovery: Are we meant for each other?". Thats was not really anything new for me cause I am in charge of evaluating and implementing UDDI solution for the company I work for. But a really good presentation. It will really simplify the life of our infrastructure team.
I will also attend the "WEB312: Integrating Applications with UDDI Services" later on.
After two days without any connection I finally found the right place to get a connection for more then 15 minutes. I will hopefully be able to post some remarks on the sessions and pictures. Stay tuned!
It is really really warm here!!!
The trip was good and the organization here is awesome except for the wifi connection, it doesn't work at all. You get a connection for 30 seconds and then nothing. I could find another place where I get connected for 10 minutes but there is no power supply.
