I have had my first in a regular series of articles for developer.com and codeguru.com posted this week. The first article is entitled “Migrating Applications to the .NET Compact Framework 2.0 and Windows Mobile 5.0″. The goal – provide at a higher-level (and fewer words) some of the considerations for moving your existing .NET Compact Framework applications forward with Visual Studio 2005, .NET CF 2.0 and Windows Mobile 5.0. I tried to place a focus on what the impact of some of the more notable changes will mean to you as a developer.
You can find the developer.com version of the article here, and the codeguru.com version here. They are the same article, just cross-posted by the good folks at Jupitermedia to both locations.
Look forward to regular content from me at these web sites in the coming weeks and months.

Call for Speakers
Are you a developer interested in improving your .NET skills? Then this is the event to attend. Code Camp 4: Developers Gone Wild promises to be both bigger and better than anything we have done before. This free two day seminar is designed as a series of intensive code related demos and technical sessions to guide the developer to the next skill level. The continuing goal of the Code Camps is to provide an intensive developer to developer learning experience that is fun and technically stimulating. The focus is on delivering programming information and sample code that can be used immediately. All training, slides, manuals and demo code is provided free!
This two day camp is hosted in our Waltham facility. The leading technical camp counselors from both Microsoft and the New England Developer Community will share their technical expertise and experiences. This code camp is divided into three tracks – Smart Client, Web Development and Data Technologies. Each track starts with a “get the code” basics before advancing to more advanced topics.
I would especially like to encourage… no… urge… no… beg anyone who hasn’t yet presented at a Code Camp and is interested in sharing their knowledge with the rest of the community to take a look at the “Call For Speakers” information. The continued success of Code Camps comes from and relies upon community participation. Remember – Code Camps are all about being “by the community – for the community”.
Everywhere, it seems (at least to me). Things have been very, very busy as of late both at the office and “after-hours”. Hopefully, things will start to return to normal soon (he said, wishfully).
