The Mojave Experiment

יום שני, יולי 28, 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.

To List<T> or to Collection<T>

יום חמישי, מאי 15, 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. . .

יום חמישי, אפריל 3, 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.

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,...
