This Week's Topics


Comments from the Editor

Welcome to another week of the Codeguru Update eNewsletter. The next few weeks look like they will be exciting.

I know that a number of Codeguru members have been recognized as Microsoft MVPs. Several of these awardees will be flying out to Seattle, Washington next week to attend the MVP Summit. Because we are planning to get together, if you are an MVP or if you are in the Seattle area, let us know. Hopefully those that attend will be able to come back and share any information that isn't restricted.

It is also worth noting that we are starting to accept more shorter form articles. These are in the forum of Tips or Tricks. If you have a tip or trick you'd like to share, feel free to submit it as an article with "Tip" at the start of the title. If it is something others will get value from, then we will get it published.

Until next week...

Brad!
