Comments
from the
Editor
==========================================================


Today I am attending the Microsoft Across America event that is happening in
Indianapolis, Indiana. This is the launch event in Indianapolis by Microsoft for
Microsoft Windows Vista, Microsoft Exchange 2007, and Microsoft Office 2007.
I’ll let you know how this “sold out” event goes. With a number of these events
taking place around the United States, you might be able to go to one in your
area as well.


If you are keeping up with Visual Studio’s latest releases, then you should
note that the latest Community Technology Preview (CTP) released for “Orcas”
last week. This is a preview of the next  release of Visual Studio, which
contains C# 3.0 and VB 9.0 features.


For more, see: http://www.codeguru.com/announcements/article.php/3653811/


Finally, you should check out the winners of Developer.com’s Product of the
Year Awards. These were announced yesterday on the Developer.com site. You can
see the list of winners at:

Until next week…


Brad!

– Why Most Code Looks Like a Rube Goldberg
Invention
    By Paul Kimmel –
Reliability is a

of their code. But who’s got the time to write beautiful code when deadlines and
end users couldn’t care less what the code looks like? Here’s how to make the
time.
