I figured PDC was a great milestone to get started blogging. One of those things I have been intending to get around to, now there is so much new stuff to talk about, it just has to be done.

Between Longhorn, Whidbey, and
Yukon, developers have a tidal wave sized bow wave of technology coming at them. For those still reeling from the adoption of .NET and trying to master the fundamentals of .NET as a development platform, brace yourselves. You need a new gear. The good news is that you can for the most part keep doing what you are doing, using the .NET framework even in v2 the way you have been with little modification to what you know. The bad news is that if you take that approach, you will be letting that bow wave wash over you and pass you by, not taking advantage of some incredible new capabilities in these new platforms, and that is just not good for you.

In the coming weeks and months, I plan to blog on the many aspects of the Whidbey, Yukon, and Longhorn that I will be working with for development of materials for articles and hopefully a book. The growing popularity of blogging could not come at a better time for getting the word out there about these new technologies. It is a great mechanism for sharing knowledge, insights, opinions, and yes.., trivial facts and observations.

So stay tuned for lots more info.
