Singapore is a hotbed for a lot of great technology conferences this year. I am invited to present in quite a few of them this year. Of course, most of these presentations are very centered around XML Services, Service-Orientation and Distributed Systems. These are a couple of the events that I will be presenting in the second quarter of this year. I am looking forward to SDA.NET Conference 2005 as I will be presenting a couple of sessions on Indigo and I am also very excited to have 2 mysterious internationally-renowned speakers (whom I will disclose later) whom will be presenting alongside me as well. All 3 of us will be bringing Indigo to the plate during this event. If you are around Singapore during the 24-27th May 2005, please do not miss it.

I will update on the details of the synopsis once I have it.


If these events are not enough to whet your geek passion, there are a lot more great ones coming up in the second half of this year. Stay tuned to this space for more.

    I dunno --- I think 1 GB is already a lot. Now, we have 2 GB !

    When will the war hit the breaking point ? When it reaches 1 TB ?

  • As usual, I find the documentation of the Indigo CTP bits rather lacking. This is to-be-expected for any CTP Releases. Besides the declaration of attributes, Indigo makes heavy use of configuration to enable an Aspected-Oriented style of programming (AOP). This is really good as it really separates the technical goo from the functional business gunk. This is all good BUT the documentation for the configuration section (plus the schematic view) is rather lacking from the CTP documentation.

    A great article by ex-MSFTee Stephen R. Walli on that deals with the Perspectives on the Shared Source Initiative.

    A must read for a great insight into Microsoft and its shared source initiatives and perspectives.

  • I am invited to present in the MSDN Briefing on 31 March 2005. This quarterly-held event usually generates a fair amount of interest and the theme for this event will be focused on Security - Secure to Survive Conference.

    And since it is focused on security, the most natural thing for me to talk about would be "How to secure your Web Services". Of course, I would be using Web Services Enhancements (WSE) 2.0 for this talk. Since this will be a Level 200+ session, I will hold off asking the audiences to drill down deep into the security headers with me. I will focus more on the principles and concepts and some demos to get audiences interested in securing their Web Services via a message-based approach rather than a transport-based approach such as HTTPS/SSL.

    If time permits, I will spend a little time near the end of the session to do a quick demo on Indigo, focusing on the WSProfileBinding of Indigo and how easy it is to secure their Indigo Services in the future. Indigo is "secure-by-default". This will be the first time Indigo demos will be shown to the public on MSDN Briefing. Do NOT miss it.

    If you are around the area, do drop by and listen in. More details can be found here.
