IIS7: a whole load of hosting goodness
The IIS website over at www.iis.net has had a revamp in the wake of the Vista launch which of course comes with IIS7; the latest and greatest version of Internet Information Server. One of the things that I like about IIS7, apart from the new management console, is the fact that as an application developer...

Calling all web design and web developer students - event to learn about Microsoft's web technologies
I learnt about this particular event through Mark Johnston's blog and it's a great opportunity for students to learn about Microsoft's web technologies. It's a full day of goodness with two tracks, one for design students and the other for developers. Judging from the agenda, I would say that if you...

WPF/E CTP (Feb 2007)
This little blighter slipped out the door on the 2nd and I didn't even realise! Lucky Mike Taulty has got his ear to the ground and spotted the release and also a rather nice Vista environment built with WPF/E. Kind of makes the www.seewindowsvista.com site (which was done in Flash) seem a bit average...

We've just released Virtual Labs for Expression Web so have a look and find out why it's such a cool tool for building standards-compliant websites. Here's what's covered in...

Office Live Web Services - make it want you want
Extending Office Live has recently been made easier through the introduction of this web service which provides specific API access to core parts of the platform.

Expression on MSDN
To all those who asked and provided feedback, thank you. Your voice has swayed the vote and Expression Web is now available on MSDN Premium subscription. It's a start - Expression Design and Media aren't on there because they aren't related to developer tools. But what about developers who do their own...

Small Software Developer? Daunted by MS technology adoption?
I admit it, keeping track of all the latest technologies coming out of Microsoft is a challenge in itself - I should know! :-) For developers it's an even more daunting challenge because their knowledge is out of date in short amount of time. For our smaller ISVs (software developers) we have launched...
