  • The video makes it sound interesting, but the buzz-word filled web-site just makes me want to run a mile ... I won't explain I'll just post the opening page:

    Site wrote:
    Project Glidepath is a MicroISV Evangelism program that delivers the workflow-based guidance, sample code, content and technology you need to create successful applications for Windows Vista.

    A freely available VS2005 Software Factory add-in that provides specific content, technology and templates for buliding applications for Windows Vista and .Net Framework 3.0.

    Workflow-based guidance regarding all aspects of being in the software business. This includes everything you need regarding the technical and non-technical aspects of starting and succeeding as a MicroISV.

    Delivered as Project Glidepath “packages”, all the content is dynamically delivered via RSS feeds so your factory can always stay up-to-date



    The bold bits are bull.

    Who is this web-site aimed at? Seriously?

    Manip,

    The site is targeted toward independent developers who need all the help they can get, both technical and non-technical, to take advantage of all the opportunity that a major operating system release like Windows Vista and (formerly WinFX now .Net 3.0) presents.

    Workflow-based guidance is step-by-step instructions on how to do everything from get started with WPF to write and publish a press release.

    The content is delivered in "packages" that are downloaded via RSS using the enclosure technology that has enabled podcasting.  So you might think of this as podcasting software.

    The "factory" is the infrastructure that enables both the downloading of the packages, injection of the workflow and content into your solution and the dynamic extension of Visual Studio.

    Please say more about why you think the bold bits are bull.

    Manip, I'm not certain how the bits you highlighted are "bull": given that that's the terminology they've chosen, the things being referred to are real. ".NET 3.0" as a term may be (IMO) another unfortunate marketing contrivance, but the technology it describes is very real. RSS is real and syndication is useful. And so on and so forth.

    So let's not be gratuitously grumpy.

    Speaking of bull buzzwords..

    how about "Technical Evangelist"? Tongue Out

    Sorry couldn't resist.

    Hi there Stranger...

    The new project sounds interesting.  New title sounds even more fun. I'll go read the website and see what my impression is, especially since I've worked with a few good developers in my time. Wink IMHO the biggest problem most developers have is knowing how to deal with the business side, or how to talk to the "public" and not see them break out into a rash. AKA COMDEX Syndrome.

    As you know I'd love to see the community/collaboration side of this works, especially since I know the beast so well.

    Call-- the numbers haven't changed or write the author at gmail.com

    I do need to talk to you. 

    BTW love the Green Machine. My new one runs is like yours and runs only 90 mins if I'm lucky.

  • Somebody should tell the people behind http://www.projectglidepath.net/"> http://www.projectglidepath.net to check it out in IE 7 on vista. It's.. hmmm... "funky".. constantly flashing and impossible to read - Although it could be my vista beta 2 install and not the website but they shoudl check it out anyway.
  • bdelahunty is right. There's a major problem with the web page. It seems like all the elements, slices etc are constantly refreshing... then again so is this page as I type this reply. In fact it flashes every time I type a letter. Vista Beta 2 and IE7. Seems to have started since Automatic Updates downloaded and installed the fix for Nortons yesterday.
  • I like the background image/art.. I suppose it is part real and part photoshop?

  • Oh but the website is sweet.  Just what I'd want my code factory guidance system to look like. Big Smile

    The background is sweet but the web site isn't quite IE7 compat. The whole site flickers and Back Button doesn't work (locks you into the site)..

    Take a cut from the web coders pay and put it to the graphics artists. j/k


  • Hi Channel 9 Team

    I would recommend you guys using a little better camera next time
    I could barely see anything on the computer where the DEMO of the project was going on
  • I'm disappointed that this is C# only at the moment. I sat through the video and worked my way through the web site to get the download only to find that it is useless to me.
