I now have three blogs that I post to: this one, JMPInline, and NetCFTeam. Which posts will I put where? I think I’ll post everything software-related to both JMPInline and this one, then for those that specifically relate to NetCF I will post a link to the NetCFTeam blog as a small post.
Rather than copying posts I’ve already written to the NetCFTeam blog over here, I’ll just list and link to each of them:
- Platform detection I: How to detect that your app is running in the emulator
- Platform detection II: Is your app running on Smartphone or Pocket PC?
- Platform detection III: How to detect a touch screen on Windows CE in .NET CF
- NetCF 3.5’s Finalizer Log
- Why your NetCF apps fail to call some web services
As a little more background, and as far as what you can expect in future posts, I work in these areas (either professionally or as a hobby):
- OpenID. I hope to write some ASP.NET controls that make hosting OpenID providers that authenticate using Windows Cardspace credentials very easy.
- WPF. This is an upcoming dream, but right now I haven’t got much experience in this.
- WCF. This is one of my chief feature areas of responsibility within the NetCF team.
- XmlSerializer. Another one of my feature areas in NetCF.
- Boo. An interesting .NET language created by the open source community. Still fairly immature, in my opinion, but I follow it somewhat.
- Ruby. Especially IronRuby as it matures. I dislike dynamic languages for most purposes, but among them, I think Ruby is the finest and am totally pumped that Microsoft is bringing it into the CLR.
- ASP.NET. My previous jobs of several years were heavily into ASP.NET, and although I don’t work with it as much any more, it’s still an interesting topic that I’ll blog about on occasion.
