Hanselminutes Podcast 71 - Windows Home Server - Interview with Charlie Kindel
My seventy-first podcast is up. I've talked about Windows Home Server on my blog before and even said once that I was more excited about WHS than Vista. I've personally been running it for about 6 months now at home and I love it. In this episode I sit down with Charlie Kindel, the Product Unit Manager (PUM), behind the Windows Home Server team. This guy has worked for Microsoft for 17 years, so he knows his stuff. He helped design and ship COM/DCOM. Oy. Get some old hardware together and go get Windows Home Server RC1. Also check out the Home Server SDK as there's a USD$50,000 Developer Contest for the Best Home Server Add-Ins.

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.
Telerik is our sponsor for this show.
Check out their UI Suite of controls for ASP.NET. It's very hardcore stuff. One of the things I appreciate about Telerik is their commitment to completeness. For example, they have a page about their Right-to-Left support while some vendors have zero support, or don't bother testing. They also are committed to XHTML compliance and publish their roadmap. It's nice when your controls vendor is very transparent.
As I've said before this show comes to you with the audio expertise and stewardship of Carl Franklin. The name comes from Travis Illig, but the goal of the show is simple. Avoid wasting the listener's time. (and make the commute less boring)
Enjoy. Who knows what'll happen in the next show?
