Inside the Microsoft .NET Framework

Okay folks here are the downloads to the presentation (2.7MB)
and the code samples (120KB)
that I promised at yesterday’s seminar. You can also download the same stuff directly
from GDN.

It was great to see so many people interested in .NET and I have already got some
really excellent feedback by mail. There was just one hitch during presentation when
I wasn’t able to demo the data access code due to a SQL Server issue. Apparently Windows
Server 2003 only
supports
SQL Server 2000 Service Pack 3 and above.

Anyway I would love to hear more feedback from everyone who came for the seminar including
the shortcomings so that I can improve on the next one. You can mail me at [email protected] or
click on the Add Comment link below to enter your comments.

The next seminar will be on migrating applications from Visual Basic 6/COM to Visual
Basic .NET at 5.30pm on the 15th of September.

The next course that I will be starting at Gateway on 20 Sep (Sat) will be on Programming
with Microsoft Visual Basic .NET
, you can even download the first two modules
in the course from the course
page
at Microsoft.

Update: It looks like my hosting provider doesn’t let me keep zip files for downloading,
I will try to put up the files in another location and let you know once the url is
fixed. 

Update: The links to the presentation and code files are working now.

Inside the Microsoft .NET Framework

MCAD .NET

Passed the 70-320 exam
on Developing XML Web Services and Server Components with Microsoft Visual C# today.
My score for this exam was 966/1000 which meant that I had got two questions wrong
out of the fifty seven.

Three exams in three weeks that leaves another two more to go for the MCSD .NET certification!
