started a new book today! Is this volume 2 of the Essential .NET series? This is the first book: Essential .NET, Volume 1: The Common Language Runtime
Don's first sentence in the new book:
Software lives at the boundary between objective and subjective reality.
Will we get blog information about this book on sentence by sentence? ;-)
Don will also speak at TechEd in Barcelona:
The 'Don' of Web Services: A Guide to Clarity and Stability
A good reason to get up early the day after the TechEd party!
Just sitting on the gate (Airport Vienna) to my flight to Barcelona, TechEd. I didn't expect that I have wireless available here. And it is free (during a trial-period).
At the airport in Seattle wireless was available, too. However, in Seattle I didn't receive the IP address for a gateway. There it seems it is necessary to buy the wireless connection before use.
I didn't see a wireless network at the airport in Washington, DC.
With my session DEV382,

Many sessions - your choice :-)
See you in Barcelona!
21-25 July I'm teaching one intensive week of
.NET Programming in Vienna, Austria:
XML Web Services
With this Boot Camp we do have extended course times because of the lot of technologies covered. Although I've done such a boot camp already 7 times since July 2001, every time it takes a different focus depending on the previsous knowledge and the interests of the attendees.
For the first time we have
a new pricing model: the more attendees that register to this camp reduces the course price automatically :-)
If you want information about upcoming boot camp dates, Update: contact me by email!
Tuesday I'm travelling to Redmond; meeting with
Ingo Rammer and others.
Ingo is not living far away from my home. We are both from Austria. Last year there was a month where we've met in some other countries:
Florida (ASP.NET Connections)
Frankfurt, Germany (CodeWise Meeting & .NET One Conference)
In Zuerich I've been speaking at DevDays, while Ingo was working at a customer's site. We've met there just because we've used the name of the city in the display name of the Windows Messenger; and so we knew that we are in the same city.
For how long do we use the messenger? Nowadays we also know where we can meet because of our weblogs. IT is changing fast. I like this.
