    TheRHogue, who frequently posts in the winfx newsgroups, has built up a collection of  nice looking 3D Avalon samples which can be found on his site here.  Unfortunately there is no source code made available.

  • Adam gets a new blog!

    Filed under:

    Ok, this is the last "Adam gets a new..."

    I've got a new blog engine, as well as a new look. I can't take any credit for the new look as it's almost a complete copy of D. Keith Robinson's blog. I've always thought that he's had the best blog layout, so while creating the new engine I thought I'd just pay him tribute and create a near duplicate. The greatest value was the HTML structure of the site, what better way to learn then to emulate a site that passes XHTML, CSS and Section 508 validation tests successfully.

    I'll change the skin soon, though, I don't want to cramp Keith's style for too long...

    Now on to the new blog engine.  I've been using dasBlog as my main blog and every blog community site that I am involved with uses DotText.  I've liked and disliked parts of each, and I've always been a “write-it-yourself” guy, so I decided it was time to start fresh.  I've just got the basics so far, but now I'll be able to experiment with a few ideas.

  • Adam gets a new job!

    Yep, you read the press release right, I've joined the Xamlon team.

    Ever since I got my hands on the Longhorn PDC bits (thanks Chris), I've been addicted to Longhorn and XAML.  I love the potential that XAML brings to application development and am excited to help make the dream become a reality.

    We've got a lot of big ideas in the works, so stay tuned...

    (If you want to try out Xamlon today, click here to get on the beta list.)

  • Are you a WILY developer?

    Filed under:

    I don't believe there are any outside of Microsoft who can actually call themselves a WILY developer, but I thought I'd pass on the acronym.  Kent Tegels has been using it for awhile as a way to categorize blog entries on Whidbey, Indigo, Longhorn and Yukon.  I like to use it as a quick way to refer to the next generation of MS Products, but not many are familiar with the term yet, so hopefully a few more will now.
