I spent an hour and a half last night going through the WSV200 “Overview of ASP.NET ‘Whidbey’” on the live PDC Content site. I’ve decided to start watching one session a night so I can catch up on all the material I didn’t see when I was there. :)
I’m also _place_holder;rebuilding a Whidbey VPC image (I accidentally lost my other one when my old computer dumped), so I can start working through the Hands on Labs. Yippee!
- Denver Pragmatic Practitioners - We had our first meeting on Monday and I forgot to mention it. Gordon and Brad didn’t forget though.
- Digger for SmartPhone 2003 - Lutz Roeder is at it again. Put this classic game on your SmartPhone. It is .NET, though so you have to be running SmartPhone 2003. Anyone know if/when I can upgrade my MPx200? (Source is available)
- Agile Software Development Statistics - Darrell Norton points us to an article that gives us some interesting statistics about agile projects. The best ones: 15-23% increase in productivity, 5-7% decrease in costs, 25-50% reduction in time-to-market. Good stuff.
- XAML for .NET 1.1 - I wondered when someone would do this. It is an interesting idea. I wonder if it will work. Too bad it isn’t open source… [via Chris Sells]
