  • Headache +2, Me = 0

    I swear that this weekend just flew by; it is almost like I shut my eyes on Friday night and woke up this morning. I really didn't do anything this weekend, but watch a movie and relax after receiving some bad news. On Wednesday I'm flying back to Wisconsin for a few days. I'll be sure to put up some pictures.

    Today, I worked on web services and even more on the User Interface. However, today went by slowly due to a headache that just wouldn't go away. I even took two extra strength Tylenols.

    In other news, I watched Tom beat Adam in some NHL.  I have to say tom's pretty good. However I wish some people at Telligent actually played Counter Strike: Source. That's the game I play every now and then. I'm really bad compared to how I used to be.

     

     

  • MS SQL 2008 and Visual Studio 2008 announced!

    I so can't wait for these two products to ship!

    "Microsoft revealed the official names Monday of the next major upgrades to its Visual Studio software development tools platform and its SQL Server database, which will be called, simply, Visual Studio 2008 and SQL Server 2008.

    The company announced these names during the Microsoft TechEd 2007 conference in Orlando, Fla., which began on Monday. The Visual Studio upgrade had been codenamed "Orcas," while SQL Server has had the "Katmai" code name.

    Visual Studio 2008 is due for general release at the end of 2007, said Steve Guggenheimer, general manager of the applications platform at Microsoft. A second beta release of the product is due later this summer, featuring Visual Studio Shell, which enables developers to build and distribute custom tools built on the Visual Studio IDE. A first beta was released on April 26.

    The Visual Studio upgrade focuses on development of Web-based applications as well as on Windows and Microsoft's Office suite, Guggenheimer said. "This release is very much oriented toward supporting the Vista and Office release as well as the Longhorn Server release," of Windows, said Guggenheimer. The company announced in May that Longhorn will be called Windows Server 2008; it, too, is due later this year.

    Even though it will ship in 2007, the Visual Studio upgrade will bear 2008 in its nameplate because that is when Microsoft expects most people will buy it, Guggenheimer said.

    SQL Server 2008, meanwhile, will ship around the middle of 2008; a first Community Technology Preview was made available at TechEd, accessible here. The new database will offer improvements for enterprise scalability and business intelligence, including reporting technology from Dundas Data Visualization. Microsoft announced its acquisition of Dundas products on Monday morning."

  • Telligent turns Three!!!

    Today Telligent celebrated its third birthday by calling everyone into the ping pong room. Once we were all in there; it was revealed to us that there was a card board clone of Rob Howard.  As soon as Rob Howard walked in the room he started laughing and the first words out of his mouth were "It was Tom wasn't it?"

    Today, I continued working on the User Interface.  However, I mostly focused on working with chained events/delegates and User Controls.  I sure learned a lot about events and delegates. :S

    Happy Birthday Telligent!
