From SilverlightCream.com: Silverlight on top of HTML Ola Karlsson sent me this one while I was at the Summit, and am finally getting to it. This is a nice step-by-step explanation of using SL over HTML. ...
Today was extremely busy and exhausting as well. The routine here is to wake up early, grab a boxed breakfast and coffee in the huge ballroom at the hotel and then run off to where the buses are parked to take you to the Redmond Microsoft campus. I scheduled meetings with some Microsoft personnel today along with poking my head into some of the sessions that were going on at the Conference Center. I continued to evangelize computer science education and spoke with interested people about the concerns ...
I got these two errors after deploying my ASP.Net applications and web services on new testing/production server. I would like to share how I managed to fix them. see details below: 1- Could not load file or assembly XXXXXXXXXX or one of its dependencies. There is not enough space on the disk. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070070) Fix: Request form server admins to remove the size quote limitation on the APP Pools users used for those Asp.Net applications. Anther related error: 2- access to the path ...
Well the weather in April is quite different than the weather in Orlando, FL at this time of year. However, I did notice that there is more color in the trees and plants even though it's cold. I spent most of the morning at an XNA workshop. Even though I'm an ASP.NET MVP, there are certain events that we can go to outside our area. It was interesting to listen to the XNA concerns that the MVP folks had. The speaker who is a senior manager mentioned XNA being used in colleges and that opened up the ...
I arrived early at the airport and met up with our Microsoft local leader Joe, Devfish, Healy. Joe was in high spirits banging away on his keyboard at 7 am! Joe drove from Tampa to Orlando to take the Alaskan Airlines direct flight to Seattle. Joe feels so committed to the MVP program that he makes sure he has money in his budget to go to this event and hook up with the user group leaders at this event. Shawn Weisfeld, a C# MVP and Onetug leader, was next to arrive at the gate. We all boarded the ...
Joe Healy from Microsoft came up with a brilliant idea which is to have a FREE Teched Tweener Weekend on Saturday, June 7th and Sunday June 8th at the Orlando Convention Center in Orlando, FL. These 2 days will be jammed packed with free sessions that you can attend. I've been asked to head up a DotNetNuke University for all day Sunday. If you are coming to Tech Ed and want to talk on that day, please let me know. Slots are filling up fast but I may have some available if you act now. More on this ...

Will Strohl, also known as hismightiness on the DotNetNuke forum site, did a great job on Saturday at our user group meeting. Skinning is always a popular topic with those that use DotNetNuke. You need to decide to either purchase the many skins available on the DotNetNuke marketplace site or at snowcovered or to design your own. Designing your own requires some skill at graphics and skill at putting all the files together with the tokens you want to use and the css style as well. It's not for the ...
Florida has a very active developer community. The biggest problem we seem to have is that all of these different groups usually don't know about each and there hasn't been a "centralized clearinghouse" listing all of the technical communities. Joe Healy, one of our Florida Microsoft Developer Evangelists, maintains a list and earlier this year started putting together one-page flyers for each of the main areas in Florida. I think the eventual plan is that Joe will be updating his site to take advantage ...
It was nice to see that members of the Orlando DotNetNuke User Group were mentioned in the recent newsletter that Shawn Walker puts out.

Also under User Activity you'll see that Will Strohl who goes by hismightiness is one of the top 10 posters on the dotnetnuke.com site. Way to go!

There were a couple of hundred Code Campers on Saturday in Heathrow, FL at Seminole Community College. The day was jam packed with 56 sessions and 13 tracks. Kudos to Microsoft MVP Shawn Weisfeld for organizing the event and running around to make sure everything was working correctly. Another kudos to Microsoft DevFish Joe Healy for always trying to hook you up with someone he knows that would be a good network contact for you. I heard that the infamous Microsoft Guru Russ Fustino was there but ...

There were eleven enthusiastic dotnetnukers who attended the first Orlando Dotnetnuke User group meeting at Lake Highland Prep School in Orlando today. Everyone has a different background of using dotnetnuke and all are eager tolearn more. The 1 1/2 hour meeting went by fast and after introductions we all agreed to meet on amonthly basis. Next month, on March 1, Mike Webb from DNNSpired.com will talk about the custom modules that his company has created. In April, Will Stohl will do an introduction ...
If you are teaching a web design class and if you want your students to learn how to create a web portal using open source software called dotnetnuke then there is some curriculum that you can have for free. There's even a forum to post questions and you can download videos of the lessons to use to learn dotnetnuke. The curriculum will have your students create a web portal for Comp Sci High School. They will create pages and add modules to those pages. In addition, they will learn how to skin modules ...

Jeff Julian from GeeksWithBlogs interviewed myself and Zach Young about our efforts in the We Are Microsoft - Charity Challenge Weekend. Our project was to help the Texas Discovery Garden build a brand new web site to teach people effective ways to restore, conserve and preserve nature in the urban environment through the use of native and adapted plants that illustrate the interrelationship of Butterflies, Bugs and Botany. Texas Discovery Gardens had a web site in the past that was approximately ...
In this interview, Doug and I speak with Zach Young and Jay Smith from the Northwest Arkansas .NET User Group, who are part of the team helping Texas Discovery Gardens build a brand new web site to teach people effective ways to restore, conserve and preserve nature in the urban environment through the use of native and adapted plants that illustrate the interrelationship of Butterflies, Bugs and Botany. Texas Discovery Gardens had a web site in the past that was approximately 10 years old, but it ...
This weekend, Jeff Julian and I have been given the privilege of recording podcasts at Microsoft's We Are Microsoft event, called the Charity Challenge Weekend. We are in Dallas, TX, the location of many wonderful things (light bulbs and elevators), most notably the extremely delicious Baja Burrito at Baja Fresh Mexican Cantina. I have to admit that I was not too aware of what this event was all about, but after learning, I quickly jumped in with both feet. The Charity Challenge Weekend is all about ...

Michael Washington came back last night with a DNN Silverlight Detection Post From SilverlightCream.com: What if they don't have Silverlight installed? Similar to his last entry, Michael does the same trick in DotNetNuke this time. Stay in the 'Light!

improve my => 'code' I just read Jeff Atwood's post - Size is the Enemy - and I think his contention that Size => Complexity => Bad Application, is partly true. But not entirely true. How does an application become large in the first place? If an application is successful, and is widely adopted, there is a greater chance that the same application may be reused for more purposes than originally intended. To handle the new use cases, custom code is added and we get code bloat. This may be ...
Christmas Cream from Michael Washington: Detection of Silverlight Installation From SilverlightCream.com: Detect if Silverlight is Installed Michael produced and explains a page that will hide the DIV containing the Silverlight plug-in and show a DIV that will display a message if Silverlight is not installed... much kinder on our users :) Stay in the 'Light!

Some weekend cream from Michael Washington: His Toolbar now scrolls, and has duplicated it in DNN, plus Michael passed in the link to Adam Nathan's Silverligth Unleashed 1.0 Book code. From SilverlightCream.com: Silverlight Toolbar Tutorial (updated) Michael has his toolbar scrolling ... very cool... now if I could just find a suitable replacement for that SilverlightCream logo :) DotNetNuke Silverlight Toolbar I don't know any DNN, but this looks like the same toolbar, and from the description, ...
Once things calm down around here I'll actually get to posting code again. Soon enough and hopefully this week. Anyhow... As Scott Hanselman noted in his blog post this morning, there is an Visual Studio 2008 InstallFest at the Microsoft office in Reston, VA on December 12th. Here is the scoop: Come join Andrew Duthie for a night of installing Visual Studio 2008 90 day trial edition at the Microsoft Reston Office and a voucher for the full version. Also, games and networking will be there, so bring ...

From SilverlightCream.com: Silverlight Game - CurveLight The 'Curveball' game ... hitting a ball into a tunnel with a paddle ... done in Silverlight by Martin, and since I was slow in posting, ...
I really enjoyed this discussion. I knew I wanted to go to this when I saw that it was Scott Hanselman (great podcaster and now a Microsoft employee), Phil Haack (of SubText and now Microsoft), Rob Conery (of SubSonic and now Microsoft developing Subsonic full time), and Shaun Walker (of DotNetNuke). I love how panel discussions take on a life of their own, depending on the audience. This was definitely like that because we had some interesting people in the audience. Among the crowd, the first person ...
A Couple older links and one absolutely fantastic new one, I'll save it for last :) I found a couple older posts by Jeff Prosise that are still relevant: VS2008 and SL 1.1 and Game of Life in SL 1.1; Some animation code from Mossy Blog; and the one I can't stop playing with: SilverlightVR 360 by Michael Washington and Jeff Paries -- I won't attempt to do it justice... go run the app! From SilverlightCream.com: Lessons from the Trenches: Visual Studio 2008 and Silverlight 1.1 This is a good write-up ...
The typical procedure to work with cache is 1.to check if item for specified key exist in a cache; 2.if yes, return it; 3.if no, create it (e.g load from database), 4.save to the cache 5. and then return it. Some developers use the code like the following: If (DataCache.GetCache["key"] == null) { // code for loading object ... DataCache.SetCache("key", obj); } return DataCache.GetCache["key"]; //Not good, can cause problems (at least in ASP.Net 2.0). Sometimes SetCache is not effected immediately(or ...

The book I have on the subject of ASP.Net 2.0 makes a big deal about WebParts. They seem very powerful, and they remind me of DotNetNuke in some visual ways (if there are nothing alike, please forgive my ignorance).

 

I was just wondering if anyone has used these. I asked some of the Web ppl I know about it, and none of them are very familiar with them. I can certainly see how you could build a very powerful page with them.

I've got a large list today, I missed one from last week, and had one submittal this morning, plus found some good stuff in my travels: Andy Britcliffe has code for dynamically applying a Render Transform; Tim Sneath announced a white paper on Deploying Silverlight in the Enterprise; Michael Cameron blogged about Keyspline Animation and Drag Speed and Direction; Granville Barnett digs into Silverlight 1.1 in a second article on RIAs; Mark Dawson sets up a CodePlex project for a 1.0 3D graphics engine ...
I have been looking a bit deeper at the blogging side of things and investigating if it's worth getting a bit more serious, as well as having some great ideas about creating a Social Network, so based on this I have run up quite a few virtual Servers and installed DNN (DotNetNuke), Community Server, Movabletype and Wordpress, amongst others, both in Windows and Linux flavours and I have to state that from my pitiful level of Linux knowledge creating a LAMP server is not that easy. LAMP for the uninitiated ...
Last week, I started deploying a new DOTNETNUKE project on one of our DEV Server and instantly I got web configuration error. Scenario: (IIS: Default Web Site is pointing to "C:\Inetpub\wwwroot" Virtual directory.

Since February I work as independent contractor, and so far I like it a lot but the only thing I miss about working from home is face-to-face contact with other developers. So after listening to Scott Hanselman's podcast on how to become a better developer I decided to take one of his advices and organize a geek dinner. I invited few friends from my past jobs and our Kraków .NET User Group. We met in nice indian restaurant near Kraków's market square and had great time discussing all maters mostly ...

Michael Washington's updated his DNN/Silverlight Video Player; Scott Guthrie gives kudos to Justin-Josef Angel for his Intellisense for Silverlight plugin; and Andy Beaulieu of "Destroy all Invaders" is up-to-date and talking about issues he's found. Silverlight integration with DotNetNuke I think I may have posted an earlier version of this, but Michael has it up to the latest, and is still the only DNN/Silverlight I've seen floating around, so bears mention. Good write-up and all source! VS 2008 ...
My primary blog is on a DotNetNuke web site and I have been having problems getting the "Add Entry" feature to work. I spent a bit of time tonight looking at it and found a great post by Antonio Chagoury. It is totally worth the read ...
I got a weird email this week. It was from Justice Gray, and I assumed it would be another email justifying why spending 15 minutes pruning one's eyebrows every morning helped make you happier. But I was wrong. "Guys, some stuff has come up and it looks like I won't be going to Dev Teach in Vancouver." Stunned silence. I couldn't believe what I was reading! Why would Justice so easily toss aside what will undoubtedly be THE BEST technology conference on the West Coast this year?! I was puzzled...perplexed...and ...
My daily Silverlight 'Pick of the Litter' from the web, and sometimes even things NOT Silverlight, I will add on as I come across others DotNetNuke® Silverlight Video Module Michael Washington of the DotNetNuke®-oriented aDEFWEBSERVER wrote to me with this link, and I'm not sure I've seen any DNN-oriented Silverlight posts before... good job -- code included.. always a plus :) Stay in the 'Light!
