Chicago IT Architects Group August Summary
We’re back! Last night we had our first meeting in several months. Carl Franklin presented on Google Platform As A Service: AppEngine. As I spend most of my time in the Microsoft arena it was interesting to see another take on cloud services. This was also enhanced by the fact that Carl had spent a lot of time doing Microsoft platform development prior to his current stint with the Google products. He was able to compare and contrast the to environments which is very helpful as we go to make recommendations ......

Why Does Bing Not Have Blog Search

The Power Of Krugle And Reflector
I have posted before about reading other's code. What happens when you need an example to get ideas from or to better understand usage. Let's face it.
