Quote about energy through patience

In the sweet exile of labour we first of all learn patience. Patience teaches us energy and energy gives us eternal youth composed of receptivity and enthousiasm.

Plain Agility (Project Management)

I just found an excellent (pdf)article on the Microsoft website exaplaing basic Agility concepts in the first place and the role of tooling second.

Although it is written for Microsoft the author keeps the role of tooling general. I just love articles like that.

Easy to read, hard for anyone (other than purists) to disagree.

Its written by Kent Beck from Three Rivers Institute.

You can find the document here.

Happy Reading!

Hollands own technology TV Station!

The last few years, I have been watching the t.v. less and less! Except for the discovery channel it has really rock-bottomed for me.

But I expect things to change the first of October! A date to put in your calendar. That date will be te start for Holland's Technology / Inovation / Internet TV-Station.

Check it out at: http://www.blueshots.tv/

Supported by Hollands Boris Veldhuis van Zanten!

Happ Watching...

Microsoft Arrowhead (DotNet)

Finally, I just found the time to download, install and play a bit with the DotNet Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1 (beta).

Part of this service pack seems to be something called "ArrowHead". As we are used from Microsoft, this is still the codename of course.

As I understand this "ArrowHead"is about supporting occasional connected clients.

Let me know what your experiences when you have taken the time to play with it. There is not much information available to me yet, but have a look at wiki:


Happy Playing (with your arrow-head :)
