SunshinePHP – The PHP Community is full of Rock Stars !

This last weekend I attended SunshinePHP in Miami Florida !

In the photo below you see Rasmus Lerdorf - which made it a hat trick for me, seeing the three people that I consider to be the fathers of modern PHP all in the same week !

Home of the best things about being a PHP developer is the community and SunshinePHP was great for me because I got to see a collection of PHP friends that hadn’t seen for a while.

In addition to Rasmus’s keynote…..

  • Cal Evans gave a motivating oratory on the successful community.
  • Keith Casey gave a great closing address on “Thinking Outside the Box”
  • Davey Shafik was there representing @EngineYard
  • Beth Tucker Long did a great talk on continuous integration for PHP develoeprs
  • Sebastian Bergmann taught me about PHPUnit for Unit Testing PHP apps.
  • I got to visit with my old pal Mark Brown from Microsoft
  • I met Luke Stokes, co-founder of FoxyCart
  • I met Matthew Turland who I’ve followed on twitter !
  • I got to meet Corey Fowler – who I’ve been friends with on twitter for years but never met in person !! (And who now works at Microsoft)
  • I met (and missed lunch with) Alan Seiden – PHP IBMi Guru!

What an awesome 2 days…..

If you’re not attending PHP Community events, you’re missing out !

The Importance of Community Driven Events – DevLink – OH WOW !!!

 I go to ALOT of developer events.

Usually, they are work – meaning I probably wouldn’t go if I were a retired Millionaire.

DevLink was AWESOME. It was kind of link that perfect summer back in school when all the right people were in the right place and the right mood and the sun was shining and the VIBE was just happening.

The basics were all there, Tennessee was very sunny but not too hot, the people are very nice, the MTSU campus is super (and the Sororities were pledging while we were there).

John Kellar (DevLnk Chairman) and all the folks with the DevLink organization did a simply AMAZING job and because the event is SO cool the speaker pool is a “WHo’s Who”.

I went to some great session like Sara Ford’s session on Open Source at Microsoft and Todd Anglin’s session Silverlight (who thought 3 a three hour session would seem too SHORT.)

There was some fun interpersonal stuff too.

I spent most of the event sparing with Ted Somebody :)

Actually I’m talking about Ted Neward – who’s not only really smart but also really fun. (Thanks Ted for being a good sport and for giving as good as you get. I hope they don’t have you do the closing keynote next year, I’d have to wear a helmet.)

And, like many of us, we spend the event waiting for Sara Ford to do something REALLY outrageous. (We’re STILL waiting :)

I got to be a guest on Deep Fried Bytes, which will be available soon. (http://deepfriedbytes.com/)

GRATUITOUS PLUG – DeepFriedBytes is just getting up too speed and they need sponsors. Have a look and see if you can help them out !

Of course, Carl Franklin and Richard Campbell were there and they event did a DNR episode from the after-party.

[ Click HERE to listen to the show. ]

But the HIGHLIGHT for me was the OpenSpaces.

Alan Stevens organized ad managed the OpenSaces and they were OFF the hook. (Thanks Alan for an AMAZING job).

I’d been to OpenSpaces before and had a less than great experience. Alan did a GREAT job of facilitating without controlling the flow.

And if you were an attendee…..

$50

Next year – I’m going to fly out and take the BUS !!!! (http://netcave.org/GetOnTheBusYrsquoall.aspx)

Also, I declare a contest for next year – who can come from the farthest distance away.

It’s a real gem of a weekend !! Hope to see you at the next one

LifeCycleSecurity conference – Aug 8 & 9 – Las Vegas, Nevada

Check out this 2 day security brain fest. It happens to be right after Black Hat in Vegas. See you there ?

The LifeCycleSecurity conference was started to provide a venue where professionals in the Application Security industry can learn from each other’s experiences.  We will be addressing security from the server to the browser. 

Application Security : We will have topics that address how professionals are creating systems that are resistant to attacks against the web application layer and the systems that support these web applications.

Browser security: With the increase in attacks against browsers such as malware and other attack vectors, protecting your users is more important than ever.  This is increasingly being done with content filtering devices.  The Lifecyclesecurity conference will include several tracks that address techniques that are being used to protect against these browser / content based attacks.

Mix Essentials South Africa – Change in Plans

I was supposed to leave on Wednesday for Mix Essentials South Africa next week.

Unfortunately, my paternal grandmother died early this morning and I’ll be forgoing the trip to stay home, support my family and see Muth (as she was called – short for Mother) or Ginny (as I called her) off on her journey to whatever comes next.

I agonized a bit over the decision. Ginny was a strong, pragmatic women and would have told me to travel. Many Many thanks to my great boss Simon, who never EVER asks me to put work before my family, to Brad Abrams who was to be my travel companion, who is so completely understanding, and who will have to pick up much of the slack that my absence creates, and to Microsoft South Africa who is also being very understanding, and who I owe a visit in the near future !

I must confess that natural events such as these seldom catch me off guard, but this one has, I grew up just down he street from Ginny and she has always had a special place in my Heart.

I’ll be a it slow reconnecting, but am already feeling a strong urge to settle in for the summer and PRODUCE !  The spring travel always leaves me feeling this way.

So….  Before I go prolific !  If you don’t subscribe to my blog (www.misfitgeek.com) I hope you will.

My summer is YOURS ! I have video series in the works on ASP.NET Security and Data Access, and some Windows Forms stuff.

What would YOU like me to add to the list ?

Patterns ?

Architecture ?

ASP.NET Themes and Skins ?

Controls ?

More AJAX Techniques ?

You’re the boss(es) !

TechEd 2008 Developers Recap

I’m home from TechEd Developer 2008 (for a few days anyway.) I have to admin, I’ve been on the road more than every other week since early March and I’m feeling very burned out.

I arrived at TechEd a bit less enthusiastic than I usually do, but it ended up being a great trip.

I arrived Monday afternoon and headed down to the convention center where I immediately started running into old teammates, partners, and friends.

The conference sessions started Tuesday morning with a keynote by non other than Bill Gates (his last as a full time  Microsoft employee.)

Check out the BillG’s last day video HERE.

Then Soma joined him to show off the latest from DevDiv !

John Galloway has an interesting summary of the Keynote HERE.

Though I spent much of the week meeting with partners and various DevDiv team members, I did get to see some GREAT talks.

David Chappell did a session entitled  – Choosing Communication Styles: SOAP/WS-* vs. REST

I’ve seen David present many times over the years and he is absolutely one of the best speakers in Technology. His talks are not only full of facts and useful opinions as well as very entertaining, but he’s the kinds of speaker that you hear and then spend days brain storming about what you heard.

Read more about David HERE.

Jeff Prosise did great talks on ASP.NET Asynchronous Programming and ASP.NET AJAX internals. (Though after seeing his talk I had to come up with new demos for my AJAX talk :( 

Tom Gallagher (co-author of the super Developer Security Book, Hunting Security Bugs [ Click HERE ] ) gave an awesome talk – Making Security Testing Part of Everyday Development.

All I can say is – keep this guy away from your network :)

On Thursday I gave a talk on developing applications with the Microsoft AJAX stack. I had 360 attendees, which was great since Jeff did his MS AJAX talk earlier in the same day, and many folks stayed around for over an hour of Q&A after the talk.

On Friday I did a FishBowl session on Developer Security with Georgeo Pulikkathara (it will be available on line is a week or so and I’ll post the link on SecureDeveloper.com)

Later Friday I did a talk on PHP on the Windows / IIS 7 Platform !

I arrived home EXHAUSTED – home for a week and then off to South Africa for Re-Mix in Johannesburg and Cape Town.

THEN – I’m home to CODE FOR THE SUMMER !

TechEd 2008 – My presentations, come say hello !

WUX315 – PHP on Windows: Not an Oxymoron!
Session Day/Time: 6/6/2008 10:15AM-11:30AM
Room: S230 A

Is it a well kept secret? From Microsoft Internet Information Services, to AJAX, to Microsoft .NET, Windows is a viable platform for your existing PHP based applications. In this session, see how to configure PHP on Windows for performance and reliability and how you can take PHP applications to the next level by leveraging .NET and Windows.

WUX314 – AJAX Programming with the Microsoft AJAX Technologies
Session Day/Time: 6/5/2008 4:30PM-5:45PM
Room: S320 C

Microsoft AJAX Developer technologies are a collection of offerings that make AJAX programming slick and productive, but have you wrapped your head around all the pieces? This session provides a soup-to-nuts explanation of the Microsoft AJAX Technology Stack and demonstrates how to use Microsoft Visual Studio for AJAX, The ASP.NET Extension for AJAX, The AJAX Control Toolkit, and non-Microsoft third-party AJAX Libraries to develop true RIAs.

ASPConnections Orlando – Dynamic Data & Listview Talks

Thanks to all who attended my ASP Connections Talks last Monday in Orlando.

It’s great to see the interest in the new features!

ASP.NET 3.5 Dynamic Data [PowerPoint] [Demos]

ASP.NET ListView & DataPager [PowerPoint] [Demos]

….. and as promised, here are links to some of the clever blogger’s samples out there.

ListView Web Server Control Overview.

Mat Berseth has several great ListView Examples on his blog.

Rick Strahl on ListView & DataPager in ASP.NET 3.5

Dan Wahlin on Simplifying ListView Control Templates.

ListView Column Sizing at XOC.net

Creating a Google Style DataPager.

…. and don’t forget (as I learned the hard way) uninstall the last 3.5 Extensions preview before you install the current one.

Microsoft Health & Life Sciences Event Presentations

Thanks to everyone who attended my AJAX Sessions at the Microsoft Health & Life Sciences Developer’s Conference in Atlantic City last week.

Here are links to the PowerPoints and Demos

ASP.NET AJAX Security [Demo Code] [PowerPoint Deck]

ASP.NET AJAX Patterns [Demo Code] [PowerPoint Deck]

…. and here are links to the free ASP.NET Security Books from Microsoft Patterns and Practices.

Building Secure ASP.NET Applications: Authentication, Authorization, and Secure Communication

Improving Web Application Security: Threats and Countermeasures

Happy Reading.

My AJAX World Downloads – AJAX Security & AJAX Patterns Code and PowerPoints

AJAX World was a great confirmation for me. AJAX, RIA, or whatever term you use to describe this “new” way of building web applications is here to stay.

Relative to Microsoft, here are a few of my big take-a-ways.

  • Security matters even MORE than it has to date.
  • Web Development frameworks like ASP.NET that facilitate secure development are crucial.
  • Interest in Microsoft Silverlight is reaching a feverish level !
  • Alpha Geeks (even the ones who aren’t exactly MS fans) are digging the new stuff in IE 8, especially the developer features. 

Thanks to everyone who attended my sessions. Having spent so much of the last 10 years focused on web security it’s great to see the interest and awareness continue to grow.

Below are links to both my PowerPoint decks and all my code, including all the security code I showed you. I don’t think I’ve ever released the security stuff before.

WARNING: This code is NOT finished code. I don’t even suggest it’s “good” code. It’s stuff I assembled for illustrative purposes. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK and don’t include it in your production applications. All standard disclaimers apply ! :)

Live from Redmond – Visual WebGUI Webcasts this Thursday & Friday

Please joind me for these 2 webcasts this Thursday and Friday. VWG is a cool FREE set of tools to accelerate your ASP.NET AJAX and Silverlight Web Development. Guy Peled, CTO of Visual WebGui is joining me and he will build applications live during the webcats.

Click below to register – attendance is FREE !

Live From Redmond: Visual WebGui: An Enterprise AJAX application in 20 minutes.

It is all about simplicity: Simplicity in programming next generation complex AJAX application that makes the productivity difference.   In this Webcast we will demystify Visual WebGui. We will build a fully blown application in less than 20 minutes, and strip off the covers, showing you how you can cut your development cycle by as much as 90% .   Visual WebGui is open source, so you can dive into the code. Throughout the webcast we will demonstrate that while VWG enables rapid application development (RAD) , the developer is free to create custom controls, wrap third party controls , invoke HTML resources and interop with standard ASP.NET applications like DNN and others, all in a matter of minutes.

3/27/2008 11:00 AM Pacific Time (US & Canada)| Duration:60 Minutes

Live From Redmond: Visual WebGui: Silverlight for line-of-business application.

In this webcast we will “light up”, in minutes, the fully blown line-of-business application that we built in our previous webcast adding the rich look and feel of Silverlight as well as its enhanced performance. You will see how we accomplish this by a “push of a button”. We will demonstrate how to make WinForms controls available to your web application and  how you can style your UI by using fully enabled Expression Blend. The outcome is a very light footprint client, unaffected by application size and weight, and as a bonus, secured by design.  You will be shown how you  can, extend, invoke, interop and customize your application using Visual WebGui.

This week at the Lang.NET Symposium

It’s very hard to attend an event on-campus.

Though my job is based in Redmond, I live in New England.

Coming in for an event, there are too many people to meet with, friends to bump into, things to catch up on, and regular work to get done (Not to mention the first couple days of Jet Lag)

Still, I’ve been spending most of my days at the Lang.NET Symposium.

Lang.NET is a small event (there are about 75 people in the room as I write this) filled with a who’s who of Programming Languages.

Yesterday I sat next to Anders Hejlsberg while listening to Jason Zander’s Opening Keynote.

Then Anders gave us a tour of cool new stuff in C# 3.0

Jim Hugunin (Jython, JPython, AspectJ, IronPython) gave a cool talk titled “Vision of the DRL) where he did a bit of Real Time Robotics programming using Microsoft Robotics Studio, Lego Robots, and Iron Python (not to mention a few balloon animal tricks !)

Then, we had Martin Malay on implementing a language that Targets the Dynamic Language Runtime (DLR)

Charles Nutter (The JRuby Guy)  and John Rose (VM Guy at Sun) talked about multiple language implementation on the Java VM

Today’s highlights (so far) have included Erik Meijer talked top us about his recent project, Volta !

As I look around the room I see some great faces too.

Miguel de Icaza (The MONO and Moonlight guy!) is here and presenting tomorrow.

Tomas Petricek (The Phalanger Guy) is presenting later today.

John Lam (The IronRuby guy) is presenting tomorrow.

So will Luke Hoban who will present on F#

And just to add some icing on the cake….

Don Box has the last talk of the day on Modeling and Languages.

It sure is a hard room to feel smart in :)

ASP.NET AJAX at AJAX World 2008

 I’ll be joining the fine folks at AJAX World again this year and giving the following talks.

ASP.NET AJAX Design & Development Patterns

AJAX is not about Eye Candy. AJAX is about building functionality that is difficult or impossible with conventional web development technology. Done right your web applications ROCK, but it it’s done wrong and your infrastructure pays the price. This session will expose a collection of design and usage patterns that will help you understand ASP.NET AJAX under the covers and design efficient, interactive AJAX Applications using Microsoft ASP.NET AJAX Technologies.

The Digital Black Belt’s Guide to Building Secure ASP.NET AJAX Applications

You think your ASP.NET AJAX application is secure, but how do you know? Are you SURE? Would you bet your career on it?

Secure application design is 1/3 Architecture, 1/3 Code, and 1/3 Operations. You can’t retro-fit a secure architecture. In this Digital Black Belt crash session you’ll get a whirlwind tour of how to write secure web applications with ASP.NET AJAX. You can’t learn it all in a day, but you can get started with secure development techniques and learn what questions you need to be asking each day in your development process.

Speaker Bio: Joe Stagner is a senior program manager in Microsoft Corporation’s Developer Tools and Platform Group and has been with Microsoft since 2001 focusing on highly scalable and performant Web application architectures, multiplatform interoperability and software security. Stagner brings 30 years technical and business strategy experience to Microsoft which affords him a unique experiential perspective.

.NET Rocks! Hosts Ken Levy on Visual Studio Extensibility (VSX)

Wanna make Visual Studio do something special ?

Carl Franklin and Richard Campbell talk VSX with Ken Levy who these days is all about community and showing developers how to extend Visual Studio. A good part of the new hour interview covers topics discussed in the VSX keynote from DevTeach Vancouver in late 2007.

This is probably the biggest exposure for our VSX community activities to date, which complements the VSX CoDe Focus magazine. This podcast interview covers the story and message around VSX: VS as a platform, VS SDK, VS Shell, DSL Tools, VSIP program, plus VSX examples, online resources, roadmap plans around extending VS, community activities, and more.

If you don’t already subscribe to .NET Rocks!, you can download an MP3 or WMA version of this audio podcast interview, both are 43MB files.

Clip_image001Clip_image003Clip_image005

 

 

Did you ever feel inundated with developer tools? Did you ever feel you are missing something that could make your life easier as a developer and as a power user? There are so many tools available to choose from and it keeps getting tougher to keep up with. Tool familiarity continues to be one of the top developer challenges. This series of seminars is all about tools for developers, by developers. Join Microsoft Florida Developer Evangelist Russ Fustino and MVP Stan Schultes (via Live Meeting) as they bring you demos and discussion about their favorite developer tools. Attend this session and see tools including but not limited to: Fiddler, Web Stress tool, IE Developer Toolbar, Visual Studio IDE Tools, Live Services, and Community tool web sites. There’s something here for everyone, from beginners to experts. Don’t miss this event. It’s where “It’s AATT”!

Presenter Bio

Russ Fustino (www.russtoolshed.net) wisely shelved dreams of rock and roll stardom in order to share his vast knowledge with developers nationwide. Given that he can’t sing or play an instrument, we’re all very grateful. Russ has more than 25 years of software development experience and he’s the creator of the Russ’ Tool Shed developer seminar series and has donned his trademark suspenders, hardhat and tool belt in presentations for over 70,000 developers at 1,500 events. Russ also has expertise in developing Visual Basic and Web-based solutions using Microsoft tools. Before joining Microsoft ten years ago, Russ worked as a VB instructor, headed up a development department, and created several client/server applications and system software products. His specialties include development with VB.NET, WCF, WPF, ASP.NET, and debugging. But make no mistake Russ is not all brains. His big heart led him to establish Take a Swing at Cancer, Inc., a non-profit organization that holds softball and golf-based fundraisers to battle cancer. You have to know the code to get in the shed. KNOW THE CODE!

Can you get me a ticket to ISPCON ?

I tried to register for ISP Con today and had a great experience of WHY we need more web technology conferences.

1.) I can’t register because the registration form insists my Credit Card expiration date in invalid. (Though it works every day elsewhere.) The form has no graceful plan “B”, but does say “Contact Us: which suggesting how to do so.

2.) The “Contact Us”form won’t let me contact them (Jupiter Media) because apparently they only want to hear from people hat do not use punctuation in their email address.

3.) No-one answers their “Registration Phone” (though I did get voice mail).

I guess we still REALLY do need web technology conferences.

** Update: I very pleasant representative from Jupiter phones to let me know they are aware of some problems with the web site and will call me again when I can register.

WEBCAST TOMORROW : Live From Redmond: Ajaxifying ASP.NET 1.0 with NetAdvantage

We can all agree that Microsoft’s ASP.NET AJAX Extensions rock, but the requirement for ASP.NET 2.0 can certainly be an AJAX roadblock for some.   

For the unfortunate souls stuck in the confines of ASP.NET 1.x, there is good news however.  Infragistics’ NetAdvantage for ASP.NET has AJAX built directly into the web controls, and it can run on all versions of the .NET Framework, even the granddaddy of them all, .NET Framework 1.0.  In this webcast you will learn how to ajaxify your ASP.NET 1.0/1.1/2.0 applications using Infragistics’ NetAdvantage for ASP.NET web controls, particularly the WARP panel.

 
Presenters: Joe Stagner and Tony Lombardo

Joe Stagner is a Senior Program manager in Microsoft Web Developer Community Team

 

Tony Lombardo is a Guidasan with the User Experience Group at Infragistics, the world’s leading publisher of presentation layer tools.  Tony has a deep technical background with ASP.NET, and has authored a number of ASP.NET WebControls during his time with Infragistics.  Tony co-runs the Central Jersey .NET  User Group, and often writes for both online and printed publications.

WEBCAST Tomorrow – UpdatePanel and Infragistics’ NetAdvantage for ASP.NET

 Thursday, April 19, 2007 9:00 AM  – 10:00 AM Pacific Time (US & Canada)
 

Description

It was once said that nothing is forever – and that may be true.  But in the forever space of technology, some things can be considered forever. In the case of the ASP.NET Ajax UpdatePanel and the ASP.NET controls in the NetAdvantage toolset from Infragistics, they are forever, or rather, Best Friends Forever.  In this webcast, you’ll learn how the new ASP.NET AJAX capabilities work together with the rich controls toolset from Infragistics – and vice versa.  See how to embed complex grids, charts and other controls from Infragistics in the UpdatePanel, as well as embedding ASP.NET native controls including the UpdatePanel inside the Infragistics already AJAX enabled controls. The end goal is to build rich, interactive applications AND eliminate postbacks – and using the right tools and technologies from Microsoft and Infragistics, this becomes a reality.

ASP.NET AJAX the Codeless Way: Telerik AJAX Manager in Action

 

Ever dreamed about a shortcut to building ASP.NET AJAX-enabled applications? One that eliminates the need for writing JavaScript, placing UpdatePanels all over your form, setting dozens of Triggers? Now, wake up and watch carefully, because this is already possible in real world, thanks to a new control from Telerik, called ASP.NET AJAX Manager.

Join us for a practical demonstration led by Todd Anglin, a Telerik Technical Evangelist. First, Todd will build a typical ASP.NET application using third-party controls for the rich UI. This app will perform regular postbacks. Then he will add Microsoft ASP.NET AJAX to the project and use the special Telerik AJAX Manager to turn this into a real AJAX application. Thanks to the Telerik control Todd will not write a single line of code and will not make any modifications to the existing app (no UpdatePanels, no Triggers). Too good to be true, or just too good. Come and see.

 

My Co-Presenter –  

 

Todd Anglin is a Telerik Technical Evangelist responsible for building a strong Telerik community and channeling feedback to the development team. Before joining Telerik, he worked as a developer in a Fortune 200 financial services company in San Antonio as a Systems Analyst supporting applications on a wide range of platforms and technologies, including Unix, Windows Server, Informix, Oracle, and SQL Server. Todd graduated Magna Cum Laude with Business Honors from Mays Business School at Texas A&M University with a BBA in MIS and now resides with his wife in San Antonio, Texas.

PHP Quebec – My PowerPoint

PHP Quebec was a blast, apart from having 3 flights canceled due to fog trying to get there, and having to rent a car and drive home due to the snow.

The bad news was that the drive took about 16 hours. The good news was that it only snowed for the first 11  ; but I made it home in time to take my kids to the Disney on Ice show on the weekend.

Anyway – thanks to all the folks who attended the PHP and the Windows Platform session.

This week at Ajax World

It’s conference season.

Last week I was at the PHP Quebec conference.

http://conf.phpquebec.com/

This week ………

I’m in New York City this week speaking at Ajax World.

Just being here and staying at the beautiful Roosevelt Hotel at 45th & Madison has been a fun blast from the past. I worked in Manhattan for five years.

I’ve run into a number of old friends and coworkers, and, even though I’m pretty over committed these days at work and have spent much of the conference in my hotel room working, I’ve managed to tour the expo floor, meet with many of the vendors and get a look at their products, talk to lots of customers at the Microsoft booth, and attend some interesting sessions.

There are about 1000 people here and there have been a few revelations.

1.) Ajax is even hotter than I thought.

2.) There is HUGE interest from large enterprises, venture capital firms, and the like.

3.) There is still lack of understanding about what Ajax means to application design and architecture and User Experience.

4.) Most people STILL don’t know Microsoft offers great FREE Developer Tools !

Get Yours Here : http://msdn.microsoft.com/vstudio/express/

Next week ………

I’m presenting on AJAX at the Microsoft Technology Summit on the campus in Redmond and spending a couple of days meeting with the dev tools and platforms product units to discuss some really interesting new resources for developers.

Stay tuned !
