The Mojave Experiment

28 ביולי 2008

Last week, for 3 day somewhere in San Francisco, Microsoft conducted a marketing experiment for the next version of Windows code name "Mojave". Microsoft gathered over 120 computer users (common folks - consumers not the usual computer experts) whom are all critics of Windows Vista. The promise was to give them all a sneak peak of Windows Vista successor and use their criticism to build a better product. Windows Mojave was Windows Vista. The same product. The critics did not seem to realize and apparently loved the new operating system. More than 90% gave positive feedback on the operating system...

Welcome Google App Engine

31 במאי 2008

Before you start reading this post, please notice that everything I write is my own opinion and is NOT related to me being an MS employee, nor I used any contact that is not public. Enjoy.

To List<T> or to Collection<T>

15 במאי 2008

Pop quiz. how can tell me what is the difference between List<T> and Collection<T>? And even more important question "Which is the preferred implementation of a generic list these days?" from a quick look at the classes one can see that Collection<T> is some sort of a customizable wrapper for List<T>... Collection<T> gives more for use as a base class where you can hook the "standard collections" like Insert, Remove, Clear, Set and such. . . This will give you the option to customize these methods according to your needs.  Internally, it's Items property is backed by a...

אנחנו על המפה ואנחנו נשארים על המפה

9 במאי 2008

אני בביקור קצר במטה של מיקרוסופט, ותראו מה קלטה המצלמה באחד מהמשרדים. אז קצת באיחור מצידי, אבל שימו לב לכך שאירוע טק-אד ישראל עומד ביחד עם האירועים הגדולים בעולם.   כבוד למגזר :)   חוץ מזה היה ביקור קצר אבל ממש מעניין. . .

TechEd Israel 2008, here I Come

3 באפריל 2008

Someone in Microsoft Israel decided I should be the keynoter in TechEd Israel 2008. When I was asked if I agree to take the job, I said yes with no hesitation. Little I know how hard is to create and deliver a "kick Ass" Keynote sessions. But rest assure, this year keynote is going to be different. First there are two different Keynote sessions. One for all of us, cool geeks whom love development so much, and one for all the rest of common people, you know, IT guys ;) Second, because of this separation,...

Today I Am Speaking At MIX08

5 במרץ 2008

I guess I need to blog a little bit more often than I do. And I assume I need to write about all the presentations I did. During last year I had sessions at TechEd USA, TechEd Europe, and now it is time for MIX08. MIX is the right place to be if you want to talk about WEB, and about the things to come. But form my personal point of view; MIX is turning to be the most important (after PDC) event for Microsoft as the future becomes more and more Web and S+S oriented. Why...
