Microsoft dev stack vNext from Build

Unless you are living under a rock, you have probably heard that two days ago, at Build, Microsoft unveiled the new version of Windows, named Windows 8. Windows 8 This is revolutionary both from the consumers’ and developers’ perspectives. The UI is deeply based on the concept of the tiles of Windows Phone 7.5 “mango” and the Metro design language, and the API are now allowing applications to be written either in C#/C++ and the usual .NET/Win32, or using WinRT, basically an Object Oriented version of Win32 or, as someone says, COM done right, and C#+XAML or JavaScript+HTML/CSS....

Summer Courses on HTML5, Windows Phone7, ALM and Azure

This August, if you are on holiday and are not in snorkeling in a lagoon in a tropical island, or if you are work but not many things to do due to the summer period, you could spend half an hour (or half a day, or a full day) getting up to speed with the latest cool technologies of the moment: HTML5 Windows Phone 7 “Mango” update Azure Visual Studio ALM (well, this is not as cool as the others, but as...

Now Visual Studio 2010 supports new web standards

Today the Web Platform and Tools team (I can see the influence of Mads in this) announced the release of the Web Standards Update for Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 SP1. What sits behind this cryptic name? Shouldn’t Visual Studio already support web standards? Actually, not the latest ones. In January Microsoft released the support for HTML5 in the context of intellisense and validation in VS2010 SP1, but all the other related standards, CSS3 and all the new JavaScript standards were left out of the update. With this package you will have CSS3 schema support, intellisense for...

Hand picked sessions from PDC2010

Update: Added links to all downloadable videos If you are not living under a rock, probably you know that yesterday (October 28th) the PDC2010 started. This year’s format is quite different from the other years’ one: just 2 days, hosted inside Microsoft Campus, all sessions (not just the keynotes) available live and some sessions have been pre-recorded to give more content than it could fit into just 2 days. And they developed a great website so that people could watch the whole conference from home (of course, they wouldn’t get the WP7 phone). The main themes The...

Is Silverlight becoming a niche technology?

A lot of reactions started on Twitter this morning following the publication of the article titled “The Future of Silverlight” on the Silverlight Team Blog. One that caught my attention was written by Hadi Hariri: After a few messages I realized that he was talking about Silverlight. The problems Silverlight addresses The official announcement says between the lines: … Silverlight enables applications that deliver the kinds of rich experiences users want. We group these into three broad categories: premium media experiences, consumer apps and games, and business/enterprise apps. Even in their own statement, they acknowledge that Silverlight is not for building web apps,...

Is Apple doing a favor to HTML5?

As everyone know, with the latest release of the iPhone OS, Apple made all applications not developed natively with the Apple stack (XCode, Objective-C) “illegal”. This change created a big turmoil in all developer communities because that means that no translators/converters/adapters can be used to develop native iPhone app. While probably this had the goal to ban only the new iPhone Packager included in Adobe CS5 (which would have allowed Flash developer to develop a Flash application and automatically make it an iPhone app), it might probably effect also on many other libraries, like MonoTouch (even if this is...
