Just getting more stuff “down on paper” which grabbed my attention over the last couple of weeks.
- http://www.koodibook.com/ is live. This is a a rich desktop application built in WPF by some ex-colleagues and current friends Check it out if “photo books” is your thing or you like sweet WPF UX.
- Study rates Microsoft .NET Framework rated top, Ruby on Rails 2nd bottom. I know a bit about both of these frameworks. Both are sweet for different reasons. .NET top. Ok – I liked that. But Ruby on Rails 2nd bottom just blows away the credibility of the survey results for me.
- Stylecop is going Open Source. Sweet. ”…will be taking code submissions from the open source community”
- VMforce for running Java in the cloud. Hmmmmm…
- Windows Azure Guidance Code and Docs available on patterns and practices. Download both zip files. – One is just the code and the other is 7 chapters of the guide to migration.
- UK Architect Insight Conference post event presentations are here including a full day track of cloud stuff.
- http://uxkit.cloudapp.net/ This appears to be a well-kept secret but the Silverlight Demo Kit is on-line in Windows Azure. You already knew! Ok – just me then
- 3 day Silverlight Masterclass training in the UK from people I trust and like http://silverlightmasterclass.net/ (£995)
- SQL Server Driver for PHP 2.0 CTP adds PHP’s PDO style data access for SQL Server/SQL Azure
- A Domain Oriented N-Layered .NET 4.0 App Sample from Microsoft Spain. Not looked at it yet – but had it recommended to me (tx Torkil Pedersen)
