What a novell idea... a way for IT pros to connect: https://aggreg8.net/.

Ubuntu Linux has made it pretty simple to try out their OS. You can simply download and burn the ISO image from the website or they'll even send you a CD in the mail for free. Either way, once you get the disc you can boot from it and try out Ubuntu without having to install a thing. It just goes through an initialization process in order to run and automatically cleans up after itself when you shut it down.

I've known about Channel 9 for quite some time, but a colleague of mine just shared the Going Deep section of it with me today. Here is a short description of what it is: “Charles Torre travels around Microsoft to meet the company’s leading Architects and Engineers to discuss the inner workings of our core technologies.

Let me give a quick synopsis of some of the things I noted during the talks. The keynote speech cited a few statistics that showed the market adoption ......

I attended the Seattle Code Camp this weekend (where I could) and had quite a bit of fun. In addition to learning a few things, I got to preview a bunch of upcoming technologies and meet a lot of distinguished developers in the area. For those of you who weren't able to attend or didn't see the same presentations I did, I'll just share some of my notes: Refactor! is a great tool that I already blogged about before, but they deserve a special plug since Mark Miller largely contributed to the event ......
