  • I’m going to be at PDC again this year. Can’t wait to see what Microsoft has to show! I’ve been to the last couple of PDC’s so now its starting to feel like things just won’t be right if I miss out. It will probably be my first outing since my twin girls were born […]

  • Josh is a “experience software engineer” at IdentityMine and he doesnt have any secret identities that I know of so I can openly brag about how good he is.  I worked with him on the snowboard app that was shown at CES among many other projects. He’s also the mastermind behind the really sweet 3D layout solutions […]

    Exciting day for identity mine

  • William Dasilva
  • First I wake up to the news that Laurent Bugnion (the code trotter himself) will be working with identity mine. This is fantastic news for us as Laurent is amazingly talented and incredibly fun to work with. Read his post here. I’m so excited about it I wore my identity mine logo wear (untucked of course, […]

  • <ShamelessPlug> Just saw a post on Jackson Fish Market about this article. Apparently startups are scrimping on coffee.. This is a travesty… One that I am happy to say that identity mine is definitely not a part of. We requested cafeine and identity mine delivered. We just purchased a Rancilio Silvia and Rocky for our new […]

  • Whoa! Here is a feature that slipped through cracks for me but is something I have been asking for a long time… I just didnt know they got it into Blend 2. It used to be in Blend that you had to explicitely set a width and height to see your content render (specifically around […]

  • May 12, 2008
  • Just read through a bunch of the features coming online in 3.5 sp1 and Im totally stoked.. Microsoft has really done a good job about listening to what we need to make WPF a better programming experience… I can think of 3 – 4 things that I am working on today that will be much easier […]

    The Nate Mix 08 Update

  • William Dasilva
  • Late night here in Vegas and Im totally trying to get work done getting ready to deliver our Nerd+Art talk tomorrow. Listening to NIN Ghosts I-IV. Pretty sweet… Add this to Radiohead’s “In Rainbows” because I wanted to support an artist who is testing the waters with direct distribution. (It’s ironic that Im excited about […]

    Nice! “THE NEW ITERATION” hard copy

  • William Dasilva
  • Karsten and Jaime’s white paper on “How XAML Transforms the Collaboration Between Designers and Developers in Windows Presentation Foundation” is included in the goody bag (that Mark so graciously gave me since speakers don’t get one…lame) This is a really nice addition to the “mix” of stuff that we get here.
