Code Camp 6 is a FREE community organized event where all developers are welcome to share their knowlege by submitting an abstract and speaking. All abstracts on a developer oriented topic will be accepted. There is no review process, only scheduling the presentations into timeslots. There will be seven (7) simultaneous presentations throughout the two non-work days. Some presentations will be lecture style and others will be less formal discussions. Lunch will be provided courtesy of the Microsoft Northeast Region Developer Evangelist program. So submit an abstract, even if you are new to technical speaking. We want everyone to share their knowledge with fellow developers.

Jesse Ezell has a posting on'Dare on Joel''. Not quite sure why daring Joel should be such an issue. Jesse's post was in reference to Dare's posting which was a timely response to Joel's views on using esoteric languages like 'Wasabi' which may be anachronistic.
I took on Joel on several occasions in the past - 'Reading Resumes', 'Joel learning from the Indians' and 'Joel's college advice (2 posts)'. Engaging in a dialog with multiple viewpoints is what makes blogging interesting (& productive). There are 'flaming zealots' (as Jesse puts it) which are akin to rock-star groupies but they too are needed in the discussion. True innovation in thoughts & product ideas comes from multiple sources and so does learning.
Sparse dev docs on XNA out there. Here's one -

Prior versions of Groove could do more.

Includes new technologies - Windows Presentation Foundation, Windows Communication Foundation, Windows Workflow Foundation, and Windows CardSpace (formerly code named "Infocard").
RTM can't be too far behind.
Excellent post from Nick Swan - two parts (so far) on MOSS 2007 workflow.
