I found a good site showing Whidbey links [via Rob Chartier]. Any more similar links out there? Please post them there (Rob's site) under feedback.
Sacre Bleu! It's the first Groove Event in France!
That's what Jean-Michel tells me. His firm - Hommes & Process builds and distributes Groove tools. More event details here. I met Jean-Michel at the Groove Developer Conference last March in Boston. He's truly a business visionary with a technical flair and a lot of fun at the pubs!
Peter O'Kelly in Smart Solutions writes -
The next major release of Exchange beyond Exchange Server 2003, code-named "Kodiak" and due some time in 2005 or later, will finally move Exchange to the unified storage subsystem and .NET Framework, and at that point Exchange will be completely integrated with (indeed, perhaps effectively subsumed into) SharePoint and the other .NET-centered Microsoft servers and services.
Eric Sink has a very heart-opening post about the new VS 2005 Team System and how it impacts his products at SourceGear. I like his description of the market segment that's the target by MSFT - competing products against Borland & IBM (Rational) in large enterprises. He also describes how SourceGear's products fits in the market niche that he is in (primarily 10 to 50 developer companies). A superb job in positioning himself!
This important note from the MSDN KB (#840701) - 'How to install SharePoint Portal Server 2003, Windows SharePoint Services, and Project Server 2003 on the same server'. Very useful to know if you have an Enterprise deployment of SharePoint along with MS Project 2K3 - Note Running these services at the same time on the same server may create conflicts.
I am finally enjoying 'Whidbey' and see it as a *major* development in the .NET evolution. Wally has an interesting post on “getting” Master Pages, something that I am encountering now. Homer, Sussman & Howard's book (see above) has been of tremendous help and comes highly recommended (check out the sample chapter that also includes 'Master Pages').
I have been getting a barrage of spam mail regarding the blog postings here - I am not the only one, Roy is encountering the same problem.
I have been checking out 'Whidbey' for a little while now (the initial installation was troublesome). What grabs me the most (so far) is C#2 and the 'Web Parts'..
Sam Gentile has joined Adesso and to work with Phil Stanhope. The last time the two were together was at Groove Networks a few years ago. This is certainly a gain for Adesso!
I finally received Mike Gunderloy's new book 'Code To Developer'. This one packs a lot of information in a paperback volume - will post a review of it shortly..
