MCTS: .NET Framework 3.5, Windows Forms Application Development

I finally took the time to go through with a certification that I have been wanting to do for a while, MCTS: .NET Framework 3.5, Windows Forms Application Development. During my years as a .NET developer I have been working a lot with Windows Forms, so this was not a painful experience.

The next step will propably be to aim for MCPD in the same area before it is time to move on to the new Visual Studio 2010 and .NET 4.0 certifications.

BriForum 2010

I just got home from BriForum 2010 in Chicago. It has been a really fun and exciting week and a very interesting conference. This years main focus was desktop virtualization, or VDI.

This is a truly interesting subject and instead of a practically oriented conference there were a lot of discussions about the role of the computers in the near future and how we as IT staff would keep up with the rapid development. IT organizations often tend to be very stiff and having a hard time adapting to the user requests. This is something that hopefully will change, but it will take time and there are a lot of obstacles on the way.

Technically we got to see a preview of Microsofts RemoteFX, which basically is GPU-support over remote desktop. The next BriForum will take place in London 2011. Form more information about the conference and what was presented, visit briforum.com or brianmadden.com.
