Description

Last week we shipped out an update to 10 that not only refreshed the design but set up the EvNet platform to support Channel9. You've seen us before and you'll see us again as we move forward with the 9 update.

WARNING: We were very tired and very zany. Enjoy Smiley

      Mental, absolutely Mental.

      The update looks good though, can't wait for Channel9 to get this tech.

      But please do something smoother than just breaking and uploading stuff when you upgrade C9!

      Since we're going to setup a beta site for you all to check out before we release and can get your feedback, the site will already be running so it will just be a matter of flipping the switch for the beta site to turn into the production site.  So no worries there.

      We're planning on doing a bunch of videos like this (but much shorter) as we progress through the Channel 9 update and show you guys what's going on behind the scenes.

      We goofed around for most of the video.  Probably not quite as appropriate as the rest of the great Channel 9 content.  Wink  We'll be starting up a blog just for this stuff in the near future though, so it will probably be on the Shows page.

      I think this is GREAT C9 content. Stuff like this should ALWAYS go to the front page and you know how to promote stuff there, Sampy Smiley

      Cool. I like the "liveness" of it.

      We'll film Shipping the 9 Update too.

      I also saw this and was very interested. This will help me a great deal in a project I am taking over. Thanks Adam Smiley

      Second-ed and Passed!

      IMHO C9 should *NOT* be at all a "formal" thing.

      Video from the MSFT folks (and others who may add to 9)

      should be as much as possible "real, over the shoulder, take 20 while you are working to chat" style of content.

      I Like the feel of the "Here is the hall of building [nnn] and it's the [yyy] part of msft and here is [zzzz] who is bulding [aaaaa]

      and the person has to ask "is this for softies or outside?"
      and even may say a tiny bit they should not cause we are hearing about it the same day as the press page gets it!

      LIVE, REAL, PERSONAL, CONVERSATIONAL
      thats my C9!

      Big Smile

      In the future I'll make sure videos that feature us acting zany *always* make it to the front page.

      I'll bring my Dance Dance Revolution pads to work next week and we'll kick it. That'll be a good video.

      Hey, what was that thingie called..."Virtual Path Finder"?
      And when you say, "The whole thing is just tags and entries", do you mean tags as in <tags /> ?
    • Human​Compiler
      I believe they were talking about the ASP.NET Virtual Path Provider.  For more info do a search on it or watch out other video here (Duncan talks about).

      As for "all entries and tags"...no.  We mean tags as in tags.  Meaning instead of coming up with new constructs over and over that have very similar ideas, we decided to just use tagging for everything in the site.  When you view a blog, you're actually just looking at all entries that are tagged with the tag representing that blog.  Same thing for forums, etc.
