@Lab this Week 11/20
Folks are happy that MS has open sourced the “.NET Micro Framework”. I met the announcement with “What the *!?*&^%# is the .Net Micro Framework”. Read the link and you’ll find out.
.Net Meetup – I went and really enjoyed it.
There was a bit of interest in this story of Madoff’s programmers being arrested. The consensus is that programming for financial companies is rarely illegal, so don’t worry friends.
As always, the biggest buzz in my section of the office is hiring. As usual, we’re looking for UX, C#/.Net, WPF, Silverlight & Flex, and Java. I heard talk of OLAP too. Some standard position info is here. You can email email@example.com if you’re interested and you qualify. The bar is pretty high, but they let me in so you might get lucky too.
Friday came pretty quickly and just when I was thinking it seemed a little subdued this week and was wondering when the next Friday Seminar will be, surprise pizza showed up and made my day (thanks James). The whole office (not too many in attendance this Friday) ate happily, though perceptions of quality did vary.
Probably will be pretty slow again next week with the holiday.
The World Bank also released an API earlier this year.
