The Mono project celebrates its 5th anniversary this month. The Mono project was launched in July 2001; I started following Mono in the press almost immediately, and soon started checking the homepage. In November I downloaded the source, and in February 2002 I started contributing to ...
I recently broke my glasses though I admit I don't wear them much and I started to notice that I was squinting more. Sometimes I could make out what was going on on my Linux desktop, which is set to a whopping 1920 x 1200 resolution, but I couldn't quite make out some items without clo...

I took the 70-315 exam at Tech Ed 2004, which was held just two months ago in San Diego, California. I hadn't been planning to take it for several more weeks. However, I was encouraged to take it earlier on the basis of two key facts:
A very enthusiastic recommendation by Steven Mandel of a book for VB.NET developers - aimed particularly at beginning or intermediate developers - and a note by Dan Maharry about a useful desktop book on XML Schema.

I wanted to read this book before it was ever announced. At the time, I was just beginning work on a project here at Expand Beyond to connect our Java-based application server, the XBAnywhere Server, with our .NET-based Web service, the Windows Gateway.
Christmastime has come and gone, and the only thing left to worry about is the present for yourself. You mean you didn't reward yourself for buying everyone else presents and developing like a mad dog? Why not grab a copy of A First Look at ASP.NET v2.0?

The .NET Framework can be a pleasure to use, but there's so much to master that all too often we set out to do something basic only to realize we've forgotten exactly how it's done. For this very reason the concept of cookbooks exists ­ references whose purpose is to refresh the memory...
