The Solid Approach Life in the trenches...
I gave a talk yesterday on using MOSS 2007 as an Application Delivery Platform. My contention is that delivering application functionality to your users is essentially the same thing as Enterprise Content Management (ECM). Think about it...ECM is all about delivering the right information at the right time to the right people. If you simply exchange ......

Is it just me or is this latest round of product releases from Microsoft overwhelming? I mean, just look at some of what has released: WIndows Workflow Foundation Windows Presentation Foundation WIndows Communication Foundation Vista Office 2007 ASP.NET Ajax 1.0 Microsoft Office Sharepoint Server (MOSS) 2007 Web Service Software Factory Smart Client ......

One of the most common defenses I hear when questioning the architecture, design or implementation of a given solution is "Well, Microsoft reviewed it and they said it was fine". I like to refer to this as the MRI (Microsoft Reviewed It) Defense. For the most part, this effectively ends any probing on my part. I mean, how do you respond to that without ......

I am in desperate need of solid C# developers in the Buffalo, NY area. I have several contract positions open with the expectation that the contracts will last from eight months to one year. The company is a large, multi-billion dollar international company and the project has a lot of visibility. If there is any interest, please send your resume to ......

I became an architect through the developer career track. I was a developer, development lead, development manager and eventually became an architect. I felt drawn to architecture and as I trained found that my instincts were good as was my ability to grasp and apply concepts (I feel a kindred bond to this writer and his Mort bio very closely mirrors ......

Issue 5 of Microsoft Architect Journal is up and can be found here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/l... The writing is a little 'dry' at times, but the content is always worth the time. This issue's article about SOA is very interesting. Speaking of SOA, I really look forward to the continuation ......

In an attempt to foil my plans at becoming a prolific blogger, my day job has gotten in the way! If it weren't for those darned bills, I would just blog and not worry about my other commitments... June was a blur...my team is part of a team that is helping the company I am currently engaged at build synergy between it's US and Europe operations. There ......

I recently bought the Samsung i600 SmartPhone. It is very cool, but I must admit I am challenged by what to do with it now that the newness has faded. It is a passable as just a phone…although it lacks many of the features I would expect in a much cheaper device (distinctive rings for different callers, graphic caller-id, decent headset volume, ......

One of the things that most IT shops try to get a handle on is the use of Access databases or Excel spreadsheets masquerading as a database. I did a project for a large bank a couple of years ago and we audited this very thing. It turns out this ONE bank had over 450 individual MS Access databases in use. Worse, several of them were instrumental to ......

Virtual PC, Virtual Server or VM Ware...pick your poison...but I honestly don't know how anyone working in the IT space can live without these tools. To say that setting up a virtual environment is life changing is not far from the truth...
