Starting a new book

Just signed a contract with Addison-Wesley to write a book on building data-driven Windows Forms applications with .NET 2.0. Main focus will be on all the new data-bound controls in WinForms 2.0. Lots of really cool stuff there to talk about.

With that and my asp.netNOW DataStream column, my Data and Desktop column in C#Pro, and one other possible book project, I think it is going to be a busy year of writing.

Maybe I should go off to Cayman for a few months to focus… Yeah, that’s the ticket. Not make any money consulting, make nothing for one column, little for the other, and maybe someday make a few bucks from the book… sounds like a winning business plan to me.

Should be fun though, I’m looking forward to the experience and hope to deliver the definitive story on data binding for rich client apps in .NET 2.0.

If you have ideas of things you think will be key aspects to cover, please let me know. You might expect to see some posting in the future having something to do with the topic…
