The new Visual Studio is here, the new Visual Studio is here...

For those of you living under a rock, let me clue you in. This morning, VS 2008, formally called Orcas, was released to the MSDN subscription download service. If you have a subscription, run, do not walk, to get it. It was a bit of a struggle this morning. The servers were getting hammered pretty hard, but I finally got in. Okay, you say, Steve, you work for Microsoft, couldn't you just call up Bill and ask for a copy? Trust me, the MSDN server's got the bits before the internal download sites did. ......

Tickle Me MasterChief...?

Remember that Bond Movie where our trusty spy James played a video game against the villain, in which you were shocked as you lost ground? A bit more violent than a rumble pack.. Well, reality raises it's head to deliver to meet a need. I know I want to know when that sniper hits me that it hurts... http://www.technologyreview... so, who will be the first to hack it, hook it up to a stronger compressor, and cause real damage? Maybe a Xna game that tickles you instead of kills you? ......

Here are some of the scenes from the Heartland Developers Conference Last week in Omaha NE. Where 500 of our closest friends met and learned...

CodeToLive Podcast from the Heartland Developers Conference...

Last week I journeyed to the sunny (okay, soggy) environs of Omaha Nebraska to attend and present at the Heartland Developers Conference. Along with my sparkling personality, I took the CodeToLive Harley and a good presentation on an introduction to WF. Some in my session asked for a link to the Hands on Labs for WF and Orcas. WorkFlow Hands on labs... Enjoy. Takes a couple of hours. While there, we conducted a few podcast recording, and I was interviewed on one of them. Go have a listen and see ......

Building a bar in my basement....

Okay, this is not directly code related. But it is a direct effect of having a job coding. I moved into a house a year and a half ago. It's basement was marginally useful to me. Extra bedroom (me and my wife, not kids left at the nest), carpet (cats and dogs make this a bad thing), in general just a wasted space. Do I decided to change that. To perhaps a space more useful, and what could be more useful a good old fashion Irish pub. First, we knocked out the extra bedroom, ripped up the carpet and ......

New MSDN tester resource...

A new resource for those lonely testers. Announced this morning. http://msdn2.microsoft.com/... Go take a look as see if it has value. Let me know what you think. If any of my tester friends out there want to take a look and do a video interview about what your thoughts are, let me know. I would be happy to help get the interview done, and get it published on the CodeToLive show on Channel 9. Technorati Tags: .net, testing, codetolive ......

Where do you watch CodeToLive...

Send me a video bite (wmv format) of you or your team saying something like "this is <who> and we watch CodeToLive in <location> and we will work it into the show. I am working on a couple of prizes, one for the farthest from our home base, and one for the most creative video. So, think outside of the box, be wild, wear leather, find a motorcycle, film it in front of a well know monument.... Show the world you live your life as a coder...

CodeToLive is born...

A new show is happening on channel 9. It is the Code To Live show. Your hosts are myself, Steve Loethen, and Josh Holmes. The show should be a departure from other things you find on channel 9.
