Windows Phone 7 SeriesMy two-hundred-and-sixth podcast is up. I was at Mix last week in Las Vegas, and got a second to sit down with Charlie Kindel from the Windows Phone team. What's the real developer story? What can these phones do and how do we program them? We talk aesthetic, controls, IDEs and hardware details.

Do also remember the complete archives are always up and they have PDF Transcripts, a little known feature that show up a few weeks after each show.

I want to add a big thanks to Telerik. Without their support, there wouldn't be a Hanselminutes. I hope they, and you, know that. Someone's gotta pay the bandwidth. Thanks also to Carl Franklin for all his support over these last 4 years!

Piles of interesting stuff going on at Mix 10 this week. Here's a link rollup with all the details and downloads that you might care about. (As well as a few blatant plugs for my own sessions.)

First: Watch Day 1 and Day 2 keynotes on demand. See recorded sessions here.

Personally, I presented:

Enjoy! I'll update this post as videos become available. I've still got a panel and a talk left!

Hanselminutes Podcast 205 - Open Data Protocol (OData) with Pablo Castro

March 17, '10 Comments [2] Posted in OData | Open Source | Podcast

OData Logo My two-hundred-and-fifth podcast is up. Astoria, ADO.NET Data Services and OData - what's the difference and the real story? How does OData work and when should I use it? When do I use OData and when do I use WCF? Scott gets the scoop from the architect himself, Pablo Castro.

This week at Mix, OData.org was launched. There are currently consumer libraries like :

  • Javascript
  • PHP
  • Java
  • Windows Phone 7 Series
  • iPhone (Objective C)
  • .NET

Jon Galloway have even updated NerdDinner with its own OData feed that you can query! I like using LINQPad to query OData, but you can also use Excel and PowerPivot, do it online with the Silverlight-based OData Explorer or the Sesame OData Browser or just try it from your browser's address bar. Also, try querying Netflix! I'll be posting interesting OData code samples and Jon and I will be updating NerdDinner in the coming week or two.

We moved your ASP.NET website cheese, in a good way

March 11, '10 Comments [43] Posted in MSDN

We've just pushed live an update to the http://www.asp.net site. This is the first of a series of updates to the site we'll be making this year.

ASP.NET Website

The home page for the site was getting bogged down with info and was too visually busy. It was too complex for beginners and too intense for advanced folks. Our focus with today's update is to make it easy for new folks to get started, but still make it easy for advanced people to get what they want in few clicks.

Getting Started

The Get Started section is completely new and we'll be adding even more content and samples from Joe Stagner and Jon Galloway in the coming weeks. Both guys are working on complete applications for ASP.NET WebForms 4 and ASP.NET MVC 2, as well as tutorials and videos for each.

WebForms and MVC

Both the WebForms and MVC sections have been completely reorganized with two things in mind. First, there's a lot of videos on the site, but they were poorly categorized and hard to find. Second, we weren't ordering the videos in a way that's conducive to learning. Every video on the site has been re-categorized and been organized in a more logical way. Videos are short, to the point and their lengths have been included on the listing pages. We'll continue to make improvements with the goal to make everything easy to find with upcoming changes including tagging, ranking, etc.

Community

We've added lots of content to the Community page in an active widget that aggregates news, blogs, podcasts, videos, forum activity and more. We've also added widgets to suck in content from Twitter, Digg and Delicious.

Open Source

Jon has also added an Open Source section to the site with a list of frameworks, applications, and tools that ASP.NET developers might be interested in. They're hand-picked by Jon, so if he missed one that he should consider, let him have it.

Hosting

You'll hear more soon about how it's easier to deploy ASP.NET applications to hosters, and we've added a "Find a Hoster" page that will showcase hosting deals, like Shared, Virtual, or Dedicated hosts.

There's lots of fun to come, but here's Step 0. I hope it help! Thanks to everyone, Cyra, Othmane, Laurence, Jon, Joe, Terri, KevinG, and to ScottGu for kicking us all in the butt daily. Please sir, may I have another? ;)
