ASP.NET MVC goes Beta

with one comment

I just saw that ASP.NET MVC went beta based on a tweet from Kevin Dente. Time to do some upgrades and see what is new and changed in this release.

jQuery, MIT and GPL

This text is the header in the jQuery 1.2.6 release. It’s obvious that it is dual licensed under MIT and GPL, but isn’t it still weird that Microsoft will support and will package a library with text that says “GPL”?

Props to the people at Microsoft who took the risk to push for this really good 3rd party JavaScript library.

Continuous Integration with TeamCity (and LiveMeeting)

leave a comment »

Tomorrow I’m presenting “Continuous Integration with TeamCity” at CRineta. We’re starting off with the fundamentals of Continuous Integration and then we are going to configure TeamCity. We have an ASP.NET project in a Subversion repository that will be the subject of much of the demonstrations.

I love this topic and am excited to get to show this to the group.

We are also are going to broadcast this presentation over Live Meeting for the first time. Thanks to Josh Flory for getting this going and providing the Live Meeting account for our first run.

If you are interested in attending the Live Meeting, email me and I’ll hook you up. If you don’t have my email then contact me through the About page on my blog. Live Meeting will be a first for us, so there are no guarantees with the quality this time around.

By the way, if you are attending the (actual/physical) meeting remember that we are changing our location to Kirkwood. The directions are posted on CRineta.org.

Update: Here are the slides from the talk.

Chrome

with 3 comments

Wouldn’t it be ironic if Chrome wiped out Firefox’s market share, ended up with 10-20% of the market and relegated Firefox to an Opera-like status while everyone else stayed with Internet Explorer?

I like Firefox by the way, I want to see it thrive because of its extensions like firebug and its standards compliance.

In the late 90’s Internet Explorer soundly beat Netscape. Now Netscape’s descendant who has been working tirelessly to gain marketshare for several years could be in jeopardy.

Do you think Chrome poses a real threat to Firefox?
