This weekend promises to be a busy weekend around Chapel Hill, NC. Saturday is the Triangel
Bloggers Conference at UNC. Dave Winer will
be in town attending the event and will be getting together for brunch with
those interested on Sunday.
I’m looking forward to some comments and feedback on my Our
Words Community Blog Project. If you haven’t been there, check it out and let
me know your thoughts.
Last night was the Community journalsim discussion with Dave Winer and Editor’s from
the News & Record in Greensboro. There is a podcast of the event available here.
My favorite is when Dave talk about Robert
Scoble being a “loose canon” and ”a natural born blogger”, and what it says
about Microsoft to encourage the visibility he provides.
The Patterns and Practices group at Microsoft has just started Pattern
Share wiki based site for sharing patterns.
“The PatternShare community
site brings together software patterns from different authors in one place to show
relationships between existing patterns and to encourage you to contribute new ones.
By combining our efforts, the patterns community can increase pattern usage and better
meet the needs of developers and architects who use patterns. ”

Registration for TechEngage’s
Training Bootcamp IV is now open!
The economy and job market may be changing, but TechEngage’s mission remains
the same. We realize that even though the economy may be improving, there are still
many people that need the high quality training that TechEngage provides to jumpstart
their careers. That is why we are excited to be able
to offer the following courses at “Training Boot Camp IV”, which will be held March
7th – 11th at North Carolina State University.
One of the unanswered questions from David MacNamee’s presentation at the Florida
Code Camp as how to set a default port on the Visual Web Developer Web Server, currently
know as webdev.webserver. I took a look at the executable itself and discovered the
Visual Web Developer Web Server Usage:
WebDec.WebServer /port:<port number> /path:<physical path>[/vpath<virtual
[Optional] An unsed port number between 1 and
A valid directory name where the Web application
[Optional] The virtual path or application root
in the form of ‘/<app name>’.
The default is simply ‘/’.
WebDev.WebServer /port:8080 /path:”"c:\inetpub\wwwroot\myapp”" /vpath:”"MyApp”"
You can then access the Wb applications using a URL of the form:
No this is all fine and dandy if I wanted to maunally start it, but I don’t. So I
kept on digging and while I didn’t see anything in Visual Stuido itself, I did disvoer
an entry in the solution file that allows me to set the port.
ProjectSection(WebsiteProperties) = preProject
VWDPort = 8080
Using a text editor to change the VWDPort value appears to let me specify my desired
starting port which I can then map my web services to for testing.
The first Florida .Net Code Camp hosted by FLadotnet has
been a huge success. The sessions I was able to hit today included:
David MacNamee – Building Mobile Apps in a Service Oriented Environment
Kirk Evans – WSE 2.0
Eddy Recio, Jon
Goodyear - Leveraging the Provider Model in ASP.NET 2.0
Tim Walton – Tales from the Server Side
Shervin Shakibi – IIS 6.0 for Developers
This was a great event where the biggest problem was decided which of the great
sessions to attend. Other speakers at the event included Jason Beres, David Strommer,
Stan Schultes, Doug Turnure, Todd Fine, Shervin Shakibi and many others. I hope to
post some code samples and other gems soon, but first off to Russ’ Pub Club. I can’t
wait for our Code Camp event in Raleigh
The plans for the Raleigh Code Camp 2005 are starting to take shape. The website is
up so you can go register. Space is limited so register sooner than later. People
interested in speaking should download the Call For Speakers document and send in
