IUpdateable has moved to ericnelson.wordpress.com Please visit http://ericnelson.wordpress.com

In my previous post I explained a little history of why this blog has come about – but now I wanted to explain why the heck you might read it :-)

You should expect:
  • Information on the very latest developer related technologies for building applications for Windows – client, server and cloud.
  • A strong bias towards data - Object Relational Mapping, “Data in the Cloud”, Syncing data, RDBMS systems, N-tier data etc.
  • Specifically I will be initially covering the ADO.NET Entity Framework, ADO.NET Data Services, SQL Data Services, LINQ, LINQ to SQL, LINQ to Entities, Windows Azure
  • And I will be therefore be using Visual Studio 2008 and Visual Studio 2010 to do it.
Whilst “back in the day” I was a very good developer, I pretty much stopped doing any significant development before Visual Studio 2005 shipped. I am (slowly) getting back into regular development as part of my new role and to add to the fun I decided to learn Visual Basic 2008 rather than the more obvious (for me anyway) C# 3.0. Which means you should also expect:
  • A lot of posts using Visual Basic .NET but not exclusively
  • More and more code in my posts over time.

Finally,  I am based in the UK which means that there will also be a bunch of UK specific stuff – events, conferences, opportunities etc. I also happen to be the technical editor of the UK MSDN Flash, hence expect some Flash related stuff from time to time.

Thanks for reading.

I'm glad to see more VB content. Also, check out your blog in an RSS reader. Specifically in google reader your bulleted lists maintained the grayish color, and were hard to read. It might just be some randomness.
