Customers in Scotland are going to get broadband through their electrical sockets, maybe one day I will be able to get broadband after all 🙂
I originally volunteered to do the whole of the GDI+ chapter but due to various reasons (me being crap being one of them <g>) it didn’t quite work out that way :O(
This is the third book I have contributed to, probably going to be the first one that I can actually find in a book shop once published. The first one is from Syngress who are probably too small a presence in the UK to get a foothold in stores over here. Although the second one was published by Wrox (who are huge in technical books) the subject is niche (GDI+).
I’m going to keep writing until I can hold my daughter up in a book shop and say “your daddy did that” 😉
So we finally get 3g in the UK. What I want to know is how much it will cost for data – is it possibly a way for me to get any sort of broadband connection out where I live?
Aaargh, I don’t want to know how many pence it will cost to send a picture – data, that’s what I want!
Do I need broadband to develop .NET web sites? I reckon I do. I have ISDN, but that doesn’t give me an always on connection (pretty important when consuming web services) or the bandwidth for uploading and downloading decent sized sites.
On that note, how the hell do I force vs.net into uploading individual files or just changes?? Frontpage can do it, why can’t vs.net??
We launched the UK MS web developers list and so far it has been a great success 🙂 Already loads of subscribers and some good conversations. I look forward to what we can do with this, I think it has a potential to be a really cool, friendly community.
Some ASP developers and I have been talking about forming a Microsoft web
developers discussion group just for the UK. We want to build this group for
networking, chatting, mutual-help and general “stuff” to build and grow the
MS web development community in the UK.
The group is for people involved in web developing on Microsoft (or derived)
platforms and all are welcome. We want to build up a friendly, helpful list
where we can share knowledge and experience and perhaps meet in the real
world every now and then?
If you want to take part in building the group,
mailto:email@example.com to join our preliminary list and
make yourself heard! Also, please do pass on the link to anyone you think
might be interested.
Please do tell us what you think
I have been talking to Phil and Ollie about forming a UK developers discussion group. We want to build a group for discussion, networking, chatting, mutual-help and general “stuff” to build and grow the community in the UK.

The group will be for people involved in web developing on Microsoft (or derived) platforms, so that could be .NET’ers, ASP’ers or even folk working on Chilisoft or Mono – all welcome. Be nice if we can build up a real friendly list and perhaps meet in the real world every now and then?
Please tell us what you think 🙂
Here is a sneak preview of my latest ASPAlliance article – how to set image quality by setting JPEG compression level with GDI+
- Everyone has to learn somewhere/when
- A communication breakdown is the fault of BOTH parties, assuming someone is too thick to “get it” could mean you are too thick to explain it 😉
If they dont know, teach them!
More figures about the uk new media scene look gloomy and more and more companies are outsourcing to india. Who would want to be a developer right now? :O(
