My weekly thoughts on Twitter

  • Pfff. Barely got on the train to Schiphol. On my way to TechEd Berlin. #tee09 #
  • It's cold in Berlin. On my way to the Berlin Messe for the TechEd keynote. #tee09 #
  • Located the press room. bothing there except coffee.. #tee09 #
  • Hey. There's no Oslo room at the TechEd. http://htxt.it/i/maBA #
  • Incredible long queue for the keynote. and it doesn't even start for another half hour. #tee09. #
  • All keynote speakers refer to something that happened here some time ago.. #tee09. #
  • IT is changing. Keynote 40 minutes underway, no cool demo's yet, but business discussions. #tee09 #
  • TechEd keynote looks like a Gartner keynote. good idea with 7000 dev's in the room. #tee09 #
  • We're actually at the Brsndenburger Tor. Feels historical! #
  • Another day of sessions at TechEd Europe 2009. My clothes have barely dried from yesterday's Fall of the Wall celebration. #TEE09 #
  • Looking at Udi Dahan talking 2-tier. #TEE09 #
  • Pfff. Conference speakers who still use Matrix borrowed jokes in 2009 should be removed from the program. At least. #TEE09 #
  • Tsss. It's 2009 and Microsoft is now "betting on UML". Where have they been in the last 15 yeaes or so? #TEE09. #
  • Speaker clearly doesn't have a clue what use cases are for. #TEE09 #
  • I do like the layer diagram architectural feature in VS2010. Would be nice to put our ADP ref. arch. in it. #TEE09 #
  • Had a talk with Telerik. Their SL just rock. Would love to rebuild our dashboard in SL with it. #TEE09 #
  • Next session. Code walkthrough of an Azure cloud application. #TEE09. #
  • Watching Azure code demo. Architecture and patterns not bad, but still cumbersome. #tee09 #
  • Why do I need the # of worker roles manually in a config? Does it grow dynamically when required? #tee09 #
  • Now enjoying Hello World Windows Mobile 6.5 session. next stop Twitter of course. in JavaScript. #tee09 #
  • Emjoying Ralf Westphals's universe. It expanded since I last saw this talk. And it still matches mine. #TEE09. #
  • Ok. Last session of the day. Let's see what they're up to with ASP.NET MVC. #TEE09 #
  • Microsoft is adding an "Areas" feature to ASP.NET MVC for maintainability of larger apps. #tee09 #
  • Validation suddenly immensely popular at Microsoft. There's (different?) implementations in all popular frameworks… #tee09 #
  • Another day at TechEd. Let's see what today brings. #tee09 #
  • Berlin looks like a very big Marklin train set. #
  • Bummer. Session full. That's what you get for getting stuck in traffic. #tee09 #
  • Taking a deep dive in WF 4.0. At least, that's what this sessions title promisses. #tee09 #
  • Just read article on Entity Framework 4 (in German). It seems to be improved. #tee09 #
  • WF 4.0 is in beta 2? Wasn't it already in beta 1 last TechEd? #tee09 #
  • Cool. You can put breakpoints in activities in WF 4.0. Nice demo too. #tee09 #
  • Looking at flowchart workflow in WF 4.0. Can easily map smart use diagrams to it. As they should, they originate from workflow. #tee09 #
  • Cool demo. They've added datasources to Visio diagrams. Putting them into a Sharepoint site then allows an MVC like pattern. #tee09 #
  • Skipped lunch to check out Silverlight multi touch session. Alas no code demoes yet. #tee09 #
  • #MusicFordevelopers. Creedence Clearwater Revival – Long as I can see the slide. (yes, I'm at TechEd) #
  • #Musicfordevelopers. Johnny Cache. #
  • All controls in Silverlight 3 now have sort of 3D capabilities. Just saw a rotating DataGrid. Fun! #tee09 #
  • Just heard some of next week's PDC scoops. They're big! Promised not to tell yet. Sorry #tee09 #
  • Last slot for today. Checking how Microsoft uses TFS first, then probably switch to data driven ASP.NET halfway. #tee09 #
  • Highly impressive figures on Microsoft internal usage of TFS by Stephanie Saad! 23M source files on 1 server! #tee09 #
  • Great talk by Stephanie Saad. Again. Lots of stuff in slides we had at the PAC. NET meeting last year with Stephanie. #tee09 #
  • RT: @pascalvanhecke: Awkward GoogleStreetview in NL from http://j.mp/bCbSP to http://j.mp/1pZIAu >> watch the bicyle and the fire truck! #
  • Attending session on why's and how's of dynamic in C#. #tee09 #
  • Dynamic implementation in C# is f@#$ing cool! Great intro presentation by Alex Turner. #tee09 #
  • At the press center at TechEd Berlin creating slide deck for next weeks seminar on software estimation (with smart.. http://htxt.it/l/MWm5Db #
  • Was discussing modeling smart use cases to find requirements in package implementations, such as SAP. We've dont it, and it's useful! #
  • At session on "Architecture Discovery" @ TechEd. Suppose that's new at MS? #TEE09. But the tool is a step up indeed. Presentation pace = low #
  • I continuously get this idea that MS is very uncertain about where to use most of the UML diagrams for they're now supporting in VS2010. #
  • I very much like the new DGML dependency discovery graph (not sure about the correct name). Very cool, competing with NDepend. #TEE09. #
  • Class dependency graphs in VS2010 are a very, very cool feature! #TEE09 #
  • At Tegel Airport in Berlin. Heading home. Goodbye TechEd! Until next year. #tee09 #
  • Just mailed my slide deck and attachments for seminar on software estimation I'm running next week. http://htxt.it/D3Qo #
  • rtolido Ik dacht dat je naar PDC in LA ging volgende week? Toch niet? #
  • Listening to new Biffy Clyro album "Only Revolutions". Just came out. Very very cool! #MyMusic #
  • Packing my bags to go to LA tomorrow morning! Will try to write report out of TechEd Europe #TEE09 on airplane, I think. #PDC09 #
  • RT: @MakeUseOf: Alice Teaches Object Oriented Computer Programming To Kids http://bit.ly/VsH26 >> I love Alice! #
  • Boarding for LA. Plane will be full of nerds.. #PDC09. #
  • Yep. I'm in Hollywood! #
