Bit of a shameless plug, but below if the link to Computer Manuals via my Affiliate ID (means I make money!).
If your still using another suppiler for your computer books then I would suggest looking at these guys. Very very good service at great prices!!
Must have spent around ÃÂ£400 on PC books from them. Just need time to read them….
which leads me onto my next link
Going to have a read over this, and see if it can productivity.
Today I passed my 70-528 C# Web Applications exam !!!
I passed the 70-536 C# Foundations exam last month so I am now a Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist: .NET Framework 2.0 Web Applications!!
Just thought I would post my good news!!
If you have any questions, then please email me.
Just posted my first application into the SandBox on Channel 9.
Let me know what you think.
Tonight I have actually got DevSnippets.co.uk to a stable state (stable as long as you don’t use it). Still have a lot of work to do on the site and huge amount of features to implement. But its getting there slowly.
Think I might create a blog just for the site tonight. Who knows!!
Also posting this from IE7. Have to say, looks cool – but no new download dialog!! Firefox one is great but this is a lacking feature. Might need to give some feedback.
Can’t connect to FTP to update my blog 🙁
Edit: Looks to be working again this morning.
Just got back from Reading after a very enjoyable day attending DDD3.
Attended the first two ASP.net. They where OK, The Tiers one was not done by the original person, so was a bit on the spot but still left a few questions unanswered about tiers. The control just talked about overriding render methods – would have liked Editor & Designer support, maybe thats just me.
Then had the Attacking Windows / Web Apps. Very very cool talk!! Had a lot of cool stuff and the guy presented it really well. Also thinking final year project 😉 watch this space on that one.
Attended the Start software company for £5000 (infact it worked out to £5034) – was cool and interesting, but not for me (at the moment).
Finally was the Linq (C# 3.0) talk – was cool, but would have liked to see a lot more on DLinq.
So a very enjoyable day (plus cool freebies (nice ice cream)) but would have prefered the talks to be at a 300-400 level, where I felt they where more a 200 level. Most people their seemed to know there stuff, so would have been nice to use the time to show the deeper topics (this might have just been the talks I attended).
So now….going to look at the OWASP project (Security) and see if I can work that into a disseration. Need to start revision for my 70-528 (ASP.net) Microsoft Exam this week.
Today was cool.
We did Themeing and master pages to start off with. Done some Validation stuff but wasn’t overally impressive. Then moved onto Web Parts, and managed to create a custom provider ! (COOL!)
Also got to leave early which meant I missed the rush hour on the tube which is always nice.
Tomorrow – Data Access + ADO.net
Today is the day!!
All released today, just downloading office + vista now (offical beta tester ;)). Will be blogging about it all at later point. I have my vista test box (P4 Dual Core 2.66, 1Gb, 250Gb, 7300GS – nice box!) ready and waiting for it. Should be ready in the morning, but as I am on the course will install when I get home.
I will let you all know how I get on
So today was the first day of my ASP.net 2.0 training course at QA in London.
Bit of a slow start, was talking about the page executation, view state but got interesting more with the themeing and master page section. But had a cool free lunch!
This couse hopefully will help towards my 70-528 C# ASP.net 2.0 exam which I need to complete to become a MSTS in Web Applicaitons. Forgot to blog but I also passed 70-536 in C#-if anyone has any questions I will try and answer them while sticking to the NDA of the exam (so no asking for Q/A)
Tomorrow – Site Navigation…….
