Hanselminutes Podcast 82 - 10 Foot Development for Media Center
My eighty-second podcast is up. Every copy of Windows Vista Home Premium and above has Media Center on it. Have you run your copy? Turns out that you can develop your own '10 foot apps' (that can be run with a remote from your couch) with Visual Studio Express or even Notepad. Scott talks to Charlie Owen to find out how.
If you have trouble downloading, or your download is slow, do try the torrent with µtorrent or another BitTorrent Downloader.

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?
