Reminder: September 2008 Tampa Bay IASA Meeting
Just a reminder that the Tampa Bay IASA September meeting is tonight starting at 6:30 PM. SharePoint Architectural Perspectives While SharePoint does have the one-button install option, it isn't a monolithic application that just gets dropped on a server. SharePoint has a number of moving pieces that should be understood by both infrastructure and application architects. In this session, we'll review the architectural makeup of SharePoint's infrastructure, as well as the components of a custom SharePoint ......

Visual Studio Macro to Collapse Extra Vertical Space
A few days ago in one of the CodeProject disucssion forums someone was looking for a way to easily remove the extra vertical whitespace in a file. This is really handy if you copy and paste code from the web or otherwise have a file that has multiple consecutive blank lines that you want to consolidate to a single blank line. A solution was presented that used a Visual Studio macro, but that macro used pattern matching with find and replace, so it didn’t feel very stable. Taking the opportunity to ......

StackOverflow
Stackoverflow is an interesting new community site launched by Jeff Atwood and Joel Spolsky that just went into public beta yesterday. Jeff has a pretty interesting explanation of what the site is all about: Stackoverflow is sort of like the anti-experts-exchange (minus the nausea-inducing sleaze and quasi-legal search engine gaming) meets wikipedia meets programming reddit. It is by programmers, for programmers, with the ultimate intent of collectively increasing the sum total of good programming ......

Windows Live Sync
I have talked about Windows Live FolderShare in the past and have always really liked what it offers. As part of the new Windows Live Wave 3 release, although not an official part of the release yet, is the fact that FolderShare is being renamed and rebranded as Windows Live Sync. As I said, its not part of the beta releases today, but you can download the beta if you want an early look. This is looks like it is still an early beta, so a lot of features don’t appear to be working and I can’t get ......

Windows Live Wave 3 Beta Downloads
The beta downloads for the new Windows Live Wave 3 applications are here. This includes new versions of: Messenger Mail Writer Photo Gallery Movie Maker Toolbar Family Safety Microsoft Office Outlook Connector To give you an idea of what’s new in some of the products: The look and visible features have been updated in all of the products, but the ones that are most noticeable are Messenger, Writer, and Mail. There are a lot of new features in Messenger, but some noticeable ones are that “Shared Folders” ......

.NET Memory Management – Resources
I present at a lot of the local Florida code camps (and some out of state ones as well) and have a set of presentations that I do which focus on .NET memory management, specifically a "deep dive" on how the GC works and another presentation which talks about how to implement the Dispose pattern properly. I was doing some additional research today to update my list of resources in the presentations and decided to publish that list here as well. This is not an exhaustive list, but it is a subset of ......

Southwest Florida Code Camp
It looks like the first code camp to be held in the “swamp coast” of Southwest Florida was a huge success. I think John and the rest of the crew that put this together did an excellent job. I haven’t heard final numbers yet, but they had 175 registered with 26 sessions and a morning of Open Space sessions. As always, I presented two sessions on .NET Memory Management (thank you to the handful of people that attended and apologies for doing the sessions in the opposite order to how they were listed ......

A thoughtfully-designed SharePoint architecture can be the difference between ......
