    Status Report - February 7, 2002



    Lots of goings on this week - including more white papers, newsgroup blasts,
    and an introduction.



    1.. I've mentioned the past few weeks that we're hoping to standardize
    chats - well, looks like we'll be having a weekly chat (probably Tuesday at
    1pm starting on March 19). We'll be focusing on various topics of interest
    to the VB developer - let us know if you have any ideas. See below for the
    first few chats that have been arranged already. We're going to have a few
    different types of chats - some will be based on whitepapers, some will be
    ad-hoc as folks (both outside and inside of MS) request specific topics.
    2.. We had our first Newsgroup blast this week - 14 of us got together
    over lunch and we went thru Microsoft.public.dotnet.languages.vb answering a
    number of the questions that were posted. We hope to turn this into a
    regular thing - with folks from the team available to answer questions.
    Please note that folks are really busy working on products, so (other than
    me) they may only be able to get online every once in a while (besides the
    newsgroup blasts), but we're gonna try to have more people online.
    3.. Down the road we're planning to introduce topical blasts - where we
    answer questions on a pre-posted topic. This will probably have to wait a
    month (more on this later).
    4.. Look for a message from Megan Shult - a documentation manager in our
    UE group. She's going to be asking for feedback on how the help system can
    be improved.


    I also want to let you know what's going on with me and my life over the
    next few weeks. I'll be at VSLive! next week - I'll be in customer meetings
    and in the VB.NET area on the show floor - COME BY AND SAY HELLO! <g>



    After VSLive!, I'll be heading out of the country for around three weeks
    (till March 8) - basically going to see my new godson (friend in Paris just
    had his first kid), and then to Israel to surprise my father for his 70th
    birthday. So, I won't be online too much the next month or so.



    However, this gives me a great chance to introduce y'all to Seth Grossman, a
    programmer/writer in our User Education group. He's going to be handling a
    bunch of stuff while I'm gone - including these status reports, and making
    sure the chats and newsgroup blasts keep on truckin'. <g>



    Hope to see y'all in San Francisco!

    White Papers released this week - available from
    http://msdn.microsoft.com/net/guide/ (dates after the title are tentative
    chat dates):



    XML Web Services Technology Map

    The XML Web Services technology map is your guide to getting started with
    the new Microsoft® .NET technologies for Web services development. Microsoft
    ASP.NET (part of the Microsoft .NET Framework SDK), ATL Server, and .NET
    Remoting provide the ability for developers to create and use Web services
    based on their past programming experience. ATL/C++ developers get a big
    boost from ATL Server. Developers with experience in Web development will
    find ASP.NET to be a familiar environment. For those of you who need the
    functionality provided by COM+, you have .NET Remoting.



    Getting Started with XML Web Services in Visual Studio .NET

    Microsoft® Visual Studio® .NET and XML Web services provide a simple,
    flexible, standards-based model that allows developers to assemble
    applications regardless of the platform, programming language, or object
    model. This article will help you get started creating and accessing XML Web
    services with Visual Studio .NET.



    Using Web Services Instead of DCOM

    This document examines the advantages of using XML Web services over DCOM
    and demonstrates how to implement an XML Web service and consume it with a
    Microsoft .NET client application.



    Comparing System.Xml in Visual Studio .NET to Microsoft.XMLDOM in Visual
    Studio 6.0

    Describes the DOM parser in Microsoft Visual Studio .NET and how to work
    with XML documents within the Microsoft .NET Framework. This article also
    explains the differences between the Visual Studio .NET DOM parser and
    Microsoft Visual Studio 6.0 Microsoft.XMLDOM.
