Catching up after vacation
Returning from vacation is hard – the context switch back to work mode is relatively easy, what I find hard is the early morning starts (5am). There is also the 1000’s of work emails to catch up on coupled with Google Reader items.
- While I’ve been out the office it appears the Windows 7 blog has come alive. The latest posting on feature teams is worth a read if your into knowing how the Microsoft machine works.
- HSBC appears to be considering moving from Blackberry to iPhone, not surprising given that everyone appears to want an iPhone these days.
- David Chappell has written a cloud white paper which is probably worth a ready – although this article is actually more interesting as it references Red Dog and Zurich.
- With the Olympics in full swing there’s a number of posting around NBC’s Silverlight site: here, here and here.
- August 2008 MSDN Magazine has a number of interesting articles:
- Learning Parallel Programming.
- CUDA U
- NVIDIA Shows Interactive Ray Tracing on GPUs – real-time ray tracing with adequate performance for fluid motion is the future.
- Still no sign of a killer financial Microsoft Surface application 😦
- .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 got released. Unfortunately the WPF DataGrid didn’t make it into the release, but at least it made it to codeplex. If your moving into WPF, you might find this book interesting.
- Visual Studio IronPython Integration Deep Dive
- Glenn Block on Prism, Unity, and MEF
- Coding the Market thinks Caplin in the answer to SDP. Maybe Mostly should consider Caplin for an OMS?
- Sounds like Microsoft needs to add a lot more servers to its cloud.
- New Gigaspaces MonteCarlo application.
