We're past the trailers and it's the morning before opening night (not literally :) ). For the past few months my team has been packaging up the next version of Web Client Software Factory. Well now we're oh so close to being done.
Jarod has a nice post where he demonstrates how to reduce the number of postbacks that occur when using the ServerSideValidationExtender included as part of the Validation Bundle.
Jarod demonstrates how to subclass the PropertyProxyValidator and override the EvaluateIsValid() method to not validate on a full postback.
Allright, I should be sleeping however I am up at this late hour due to watching Paulo Morgado's recent Geek Speak web cast where he spoke about Web Client Software Factory 2.0 bundles. Paulo is one of our MVPs who is always pushing the cutting edge with Web Client. That's his likeness in the picture above. I found out the hard way at Tech-Ed Europe that he actually looks nothing like that :)
Like all good things, sadly Seattle CodeCamp has come to an end. I had a great time and enjoyed hanging out with all the CodeCampers. I particularly enjoyed hearing about the different challenges customers are facing in their implementations.
I forgot to post on this, well better late than never. This weekend I’m speaking at the Seattle CodeCamp on WCSF and SCSF. Actually Day one is over, which leaves one more talk left tomorrow on using SCSF and the Disconnected Service Agent.
Over the past few weeks we’ve been doing a lot of deep exploration into what it means to build a composite UI within WPF. As soon as you set your foot into WPF land you come into contact with a concept known as Differentiated UI.

I have a new blog on CodeBetter.com. I plan on using it to focus on general software engineering practices, reflections on how we build software in p&p, and tales of woe and success from my pre-Microsoft days. I’ll also post about my off-hours geek explorations like learning Ruby,
I just happened to check some of my comments that were marked as possibly spam and this is what I came across.
Happy new Year!
As the 2007 comes to a close and we start off 2008,I thought it would be fitting to a do a retrospective on how things went for me. In agile software development, retrospectives are meetings usually held at the end of each iteration where the team looks back on how things went for the project;
