How to create a simple code snippet for VS2005.
At its simpliest form a code snippet is nothing more than an xml file. Here's a sample of the schema: <CodeSnippets xmlns="http://schemas.micro... <CodeSnippet Format="1.0.0"> <Header> <Title> My Snippet </Title> </Header> <Snippet> <References> <Reference> <Assembly>System.Wind... </Reference> </References> <Code Language="VB"> <![CDATA[MessageBox.Show... ......

New Windows WorkFlow Foundation Webcasts (based on beta 2) coming soon... (like now...)
Paul Andrew (from the Windows WorkFlow Foundation team at MS) is coming out with round two of WorkFlow webcasts. The first set was released in late September 2005 at PDC, and they were amazing is showing us the nuances of WF and what we can do with it. Beta 2 was released last week (with several large changes) and now a new set of webcasts showing off the goods.

BizTalk 2006 Interchange Processing (Recoverable that is...)
In testing out the new BizTalk 2006 feature of having Recoverable Interchange Processing I ran across settings in the pipeline component that also have to set up correctly in order for recoverable processing to work properly.

bye bye BizTalk, 2002 that is.
My BizTalk 2002 project is finally winding down and needless to stay I'm excited. It was a very successful project but at the same time it was very frustrating to be tied down to old technology. Our team spent weeks upon weeks developing solutions that newer versions of BTS already fixed out of the box, it was a good exercise in self control. Its a great time to get back into BizTalk 2004-06 and WF. I just saw that the WinFX January CTP was released. Get it here. There seems to be significant changes ......

If you're like me and LOVE samples and SDKs, MS just released this. It contains about 100 samples to exploit the new features of SQL 2005.
