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


Last week, I talked a bit about Tech Ed. Hopefully, those of us who made it
to Tech Ed will be able to write a number of articles that share some of what we
learned. If you attended, please consider submitting any tips, tricks, or other
information you found interesting.


Today, I have the pleasure of being in Redmond on the Microsoft campus. While
I can’t share everything I learn due to non-disclosure agreements, I hope to be
able to bring back some additional information to add to that from Tech Ed.
Additionally, like always, it is great to get a chance to meet face-to-face with
some of the product leaders and others at Microsoft.


I know my traveling causes a few delays in the posting of some of the content
onto the site. If you’ve submitted something and are wondering what the status
is, feel free to e-mail [email protected] at any time. Susan
should be able to get you a quick status. You can also use that address with any
issues on submitting.


If you are wanting to give a shot at writing, but aren’t sure what to write
about, then there are several options. You can check out the articles forum for
suggestions. Alternatively, you can post a message in the Feedback forum saying
you would like ideas. You should also include the topic area that you’d are
familiar with (such as C++, STL, MFC, VB, VB .NET, C#, the .NET CLR, IL,
patterns, and many more). I’m sure a number of our members will have suggestions
for you to choose.


Until next week


Brad!
