Hello, I'm Jason
I live with my family in the rolling hills of Northeastern Pennsylvania. I'm a web developer by trade, but have broad experience in various business areas. Want to know more about me?
I’ve finally posted some pictures from the NJ Code Camp this weekend in Edison/Iselin, NJ. You can check them out by visiting http://www.jasongaylord.com/photos/Photos.aspx?AlbumID=104. Also, the .NET Rocks show was posted to the website. You can check that out by visiting http://www.dotnetrocks.com/default.aspx?showID=141.Read More
Don Demsak (DonXML) and Scott Watermasysk (ScottW) did an awesome job putting together the NJCodeCamp. For my 9:00am session on Web Parts in ASP.NET 2.0, I’m proud to say that we had “standing room only.” For my 10:15am session on Membership and Role Management in ASP.NET 2.0, we moved to a room 2-3 times the size of our earlier room and it was probably 80-90% filled. I stayed around for a bit and saw that many of the other sessions were packed in as well. Thanks to both Don and Scott for inviting me to come and present. I have pictures I’ll be posting very soon.Read More
I’ll be presenting at the 2005 NJCodeCamp being held this Saturday, October 15, 2005 at the Microsoft Office in Iselin/Edison, NJ. The two topics I will be presenting are Web Parts in ASP.NET 2.0 and Membership and Role Management in ASP.NET 2.0. Both of these presentations have been revised quite heavily since the last time I presented these topics and will be posted on my website by Sunday.
The schedule for this event has been posted at njcodecamp.org. Scott Watermasysk mentioned to me this morning that there were 20 open slots. I’m not sure if these are still available, but you can visit the registration site at http://msevents.microsoft.com/CUI/EventDetail.aspx?EventID=1032283191&Culture;=en-US to check it out.Read More
In an original post, I mentioned a few bugs or annoyances with the first IE 7 Beta. In addition to the controls already mentioned that have issues with IE7 Beta 1, the WYSIWYG controls such as FreeTextBox have issues as well. For instance, I’m typing in the full HTML of this post right now because the FreeTextBox control doesn’t know how to render this control. I can’t wait for a new build and this to be resolved.Read More
It was kind of funny to see the graphic below on Microsoft’s website this morning. I knew it would eventually come to this as Palm devices were actually really good, it was just the PalmOS that wasn’t.
If you plan on installing Small Business Accounting 2006 on Windows Server 2003, be aware that the multi-user setting menu will throw an error unless you enable Internet Connection Sharing (ICS). ICS can be found be right-clicking on the active network adapter and going into properties. You’ll find the setting under the Advanced tab. Enable ICS and add a new service for TCP Port 56183. This will allow SBA 2006 to communicate and open itself up to external boxes.Read More
A group of ASPInsiders (including Wally McClure, Phil Winstanley, Ryan TS, Paul Glavich, Dave Sussman, Chris Frazier, Doug Reily, Ambrose Little, Aaron Seet, Alex Homer, and myself) created a new podcast about some of the new great features coming out surrounding Microsoft Technologies. We have discussed things such as Atlas, ASP.NET 2.0, WWF, and more! Download it now at http://weblogs.asp.net/wallym/archive/2005/10/04/426591.aspx.Read More
Well, not much has happened today except for meeting some new people, seeing some old friends again, and picking up some swag. We’re about to head out for our regional dinners which should be a good time to meet many others.
It was cool to see the executive presentations by Steve Ballmer and crew. They talked about the direction of the company, various products, and licensing.
The product group presentations were interesting. It was neat to see some of the new improvements in the .NET platform and what lies ahead for developers with Avalon.
The demos of Atlas and Quartz were awesome. To see the same demos that we did, check out the videos online from the PDC this year.Read More
