Well, I gotta say … the very first .Net Dojo looks like it’s going to be a resounding success. The interest has been such that we are already filled up. Yes, it’s true … 2 weeks before the event and it’s already full. There is a waitlist, but at 75 registered folks, we’re already approaching the lim... [More]

In my previous post, I said that I'd be talking about ADO.NET Data Service. I'm not sure what happened to my brain, but that's not what I told Harry. I will actually be talking about ADO.NET Dynamic Data. Hope to see you there tomorrow!!
OK, well, I think it's cool (and since the mind is its own place ...). I've been a big fan of ASP.net's cache API since I found out it way back in the 1.0 beta.

Boy, I'm on a blogging roll today, eh? I've got one more in the works that'll go out by the end of the day too. The ol' keyboard is taking quite the pounding. :-) I announced this last night at HDNUG, but Bill reminded me that some folks may not remember it all (there was a lot going on last ... [More]
