Winforms, TechEd, Agile2005.

It's been ages since I've posted anything here, but I'm going to try and get back into the swing of things.

So what's new with me.

  1. For the last week or so, I've been helping out the Winforms team, instead of working on the C# IDE.  This has been pretty interesting for me, for a couple of reasons.  First, it means I get to actually use C#, instead of C++.  This has been fantastic for me, because it means that I get to see what the product I've been working on for the last 2.5 years is actually like.  I have to say that I like most of the stuff we've done, but I have found a few issues where performance hasn't been satisfactory, although Cyrus another person on our team, and I have some ideas for how they can be better.  Maybe I'll do another post explaining what the problems were, and what our ideas are for how to fix them.  Mostly I've been working on some Accessibility bugs, and also some issues with the ToolStrip controls.
  2. I'm going to TechEd 2005 in Orlando.  I'm really pretty excited about this, as it'll be my first chance to attend a big computer show.  I'm not speaking or anything, just working at the booth and the Cabana.
  3. I'll also be attending Agile2005 this year, which should also be a lot of fun, as it's much smaller, and I'm guessing many of the same people I met last year will be there again, and I'll get another chance to talk to them.

Well, I don't have much time to write right now, as my wife is in the process of picking my in-laws up from the airport and I'm supposed to be tidying up.
