Well, this has been a busy week. Tomorrow I’m heading over to the first Manchester BarCamp for what I hope will be an enjoyable day. If you are a .NET Developer based in the North west of England, check out the link in today’s community section for another exciting community development.
- Web Client Software Factory 2.0 shipped! - Glenn Block announces the release of the WCSF 2.0, now targeting Visual Studio 2008/.NET 3.5
- Lead-Developer Compression Ratios - Larry O’Brien talks about the trade off of delegation of development work to more junior staff. Comment number 4 contains a suggestion of another way of achieving the same.
- Creating objects - round 2 - Ayende corrects a few numbers from last time, with the same conclusions
- IIS.net : Home : The Official Microsoft IIS Site - The portal site for IIS gets revamped for the IIS7/Windows 2008 era!
- EntLib/Unity roadmap - The Unity IoC library has only been about for a week or so, and in 2 weeks will be going RTM!
- To close or not to close, that is the question. - Justin Etheredge gives a well balanced argument for and against making your framework very open (protected and virtual), or close up shop (internal)
- ETL World Record! - Some interesting information about high performance Extract Transform and Load (ETL) using Sql Server Integration Services.

- Liverpool .Net Users Meeting at Glow New Media (Tuesday, March 11, 2008) - Thom, myself and a few others have been discussing setting up a User group in Liverpool for .NET developers for a while now. If you are a .NET developer in Liverpool or the surrounding area this is hopefully something you will want to get involved in. The first gathering is really about meeting people and seeing what people would like to do. Email Thom if you are interested.
