I installed this new addin for Visual Studio and the concept is interesting, sharing your snippets and get access from your code to a huge (not yet sadly !) list of snippets.
Bundled with Practisoft add in.
PractiAddin is a Visual Studio .Net Add-In which increases code productivity and provides tools to neaten up your code

This is a really cool tool called Intercept Studio. As the main lead of the user group INDA, I was approach by AVICode to see if we can promote their tool since they are now present in Europe.
I am always dubious regarding any videos on demoing software, but there hey really great! I know I just watched their video and read a couple of white papers, but this software seems to rock.
Until now, the best way I found to get back any errors from my web application was to setup an error handling system sending the details to my mailbox. But it's hard to decode and if your site goes wrong, your mailbox can be bloated very quickly.
So Intercept Studio is coming to the rescue in the form of a separate application monitoring tool. You can watch the values, even the methods who create the break, and even check the performances of your different code.
They also have a deal with Microsoft to deliver their product with MOM 2005.
Chris, if you read this, yes I would like to try the tool :-)
Robert Burke from Microsoft Ireland delivered a fantastic session on SQL Server 2005 yesterday evening, and you can listen to the session here (you need to be a member).
At the end of the recording, you can judge by yourself on the number of developers present by the noise of their applause.
Great job Rob, and I am preparing already a good list of questions I would like to ask on triggers, CLR and T-SQL 2005 ;-)
On the archives section, you will find also the slides and the code for the different demos.
If you are building web applications with .NEt, everything is fine until your app start to be big. The frustration come because everything in .Net web app finsih as a single dll, which look like a bloated file very quickly after you add some pages or features.
One solution is to work with multiple projects and then deploy to your production server all the files you need. Of course this can cause some issue, one for me would be the lack of common resources between the main application and the child subwebs.
So this solution from KbAlertz come as an easy way to fix this and now your web projects will look cleaner and easy to maintain. Indeed you have now multiple dlls, inheritance from your main project, and multiple projects (interesting too if you are working in developers team environment).
I believe Google idea is to make Google as your default browser page. I like the idea to have my gmail account and the BBC news on one page.
For the weather, well I am not really to see if it's raining in LA but more about sunset on Dublin (I know sounds weird but happens twice a year between two showers).
Anyway a nother good service from Google, fast and easy to setup. I believe you will be able to add your own feeds in the future.
UPDATE: something cool I jsut dicovered is that you can move the box around, drag and drop style, web parts if you prefer. And it seems that if you receive an email, the GMail page opens automatically.Cool stuff
We have assembled an extensive collection of books that cover a wide range of subjects from ASP.NET to XML, SQL Server, CMS, etc...
As part of our continued expansion of our services, from tomorrow we will make this library available to all our members.
You can reserve any of the books from our library. Exclusive to our members, this new concept will let you having a first peek at some really cool .Net books.
To go to the Library use this link www.developers.ie/members/books.aspx for the list. You need to login first before access.
Simply by clicking on one of the books on the shelf, it will be reserved for you. You can then collect the book at the next INDA meeting in Dublin after that. The book will be yours for a maximum period of 30 days (or the next meeting, whichever comes first).
If the book you choose has been reserved by someone else, you still have the possibility to put your name on a waiting list.
When you collect the book a deposit of 50 euros per book is requested. This will be fully refunded to you when the book is returned in good condition. I will also be please if you can get back your opinion on the books, so that INDA can have its own review page.
I am sure you will enjoy this new service and of course any feedback is appreciated.
NEW !! For the first time an Irish user group open a library where you can borrow the latest .Net books. Exclusive to our members present at the meeting.
Ireland .Net Developers Alliance next meeting happens next week on the 24th of May - 7PM in the Buswell's Hotel 23-26 Molesworth Street, Dublin 2
And don't forget, pertinent questions will be rewarded by some nice prizes !
After the session, food and drinks will be provided in the lounge

A Developer's Lap around SQL Server 2005
With the release of Microsoft SQL Server 2005 (the database formerly known as Yukon), database developers now have the option to locate their code according to its functionality, to access data in native formats such as XML, and to build complex systems that are driven by the power of the database server. Database development is becoming more integrated than ever before, with all of the tools that developers need available right at their fingertips.
Speaker: Robert Burke
Start Time: 19:00
Location: Buswells Hotel
Robert Burke is a member of the Developer and Platform group in Microsoft Ireland. He's a developer, and in previous lives he got excited about things like artificial intelligence and computer graphics. Somehow, he’s going to try to explain how Yukon database development fits into that universe, too.
Would you know anyone (in Ireland) who would have a technical test to test competency on C++?
I am looking for one as a matter of urgency.
Amazon give away 200 free MP3s. Check here for the list.
Some good gems like the Hobbit's dance and John Paul II prayers :-)
Interesting selection to code in music. For the Irish blokes I recommend this one Pipebomb on Lansdowne by Dropkick Murphys !
