Poll on Entity Framework 4 – one year on
12 months back (today is March 15th 2010) on the 16th of March 2009 I created a poll on Entity Framework v1 – the marmite of ORMs? A quick poll…. Entity Framework v1 was getting a mixed reception at the time – I met developers who genuinely hated it and I met developers who were loving the productivity improvements they were seeing. There were definitely issues with v1, too many IMHO. Which is why the product team placed a huge effort on listening to the community to drive the feature set for v2 ......

Results of Cloud Computing Survey – Part 1: Is Cloud relevant?
On January 7th 2010 I kicked off a survey on Cloud Computing and the Windows Azure Platform (Now closed). A big thanks to the 100 folks who completed the survey. I have been through the results and removed a few where folks clearly dropped out after page 1 (which is fine – but I felt it wasn’t helping the results). I promised to share the results which I will do over four posts. This is the first of those four. Part 1: Is Cloud relevant? Part 2: How well do you know the technologies of Microsoft, ......

How developers learn survey results – interesting
In June 2009 we created a survey for UK developers to tell us how they prefer to learn about technology which we used as input into planning for a number of activities in the UK in the second half of the year.

Top level: Most folks are generalists Web is “where it is at” for many We each have to invest a lot of time in learning technology Search trumps colleagues for answers Few of us have certifications ......
