INETA Live gets mentioned at PDC

  If you know me I have been very involved in the recent re-launch of INETA Live (http://live.ineta.org). With the updated site one of the features we added as an OData feed, and while watching Pablo Castro’s PDC Talk the other day I was surprised to see the INETA Live logo right next to all the big dogs. Big thank you to Pablo and all the folks of the data team! You can catch Pablo’s talk here http://bit.ly/bqQYL4 and as always all the great INETA Live content can be found at http://live.ineta.org.

Another in the series of recordings that I have done for INETA live. Part 1 Abstract:Admit it. You always wait until the last minute to work out your deployment strategy. And invariably, it comes back to bite you when the app that worked perfectly on your machine crashes and burns when you push it out to production. The way to eliminate the pain associated with deployments is to make them predictable, repeatable, and automated. Microsoft's latest deployment tool, MSDeploy, along with Visual Studio 2010, can help make this possible for you. We...

Hands-on MVVM by Michael Perry on 10/19/2010 at Ft. Worth .NET UG

Another in the series of recordings that I have done for INETA live. Part 1 Abstract:As people apply data binding to real applications, patterns have emerged. One of the most prevalent is Model-View-ViewModel. In truth, MVVM is not just one pattern. It is a collection if interrelated patterns. Each person has a different idea of what MVVM actually looks like. This is my opinion. We will walk through the emergence of MVVM in a WPF application. The goal of this exercise is to understand why it is good to follow these patterns....
