Microsoft is looking to curb the divide between the professionals and the IT industry.
So all you students out there get registered here http://www.s2bprogram.com/Pakistan/ for upcoming internships. You will be getting internships posted on this portal from Microsoft partners. This is a great move on the behalf of Microsoft Pakistan and Pasha I really appreciate the great minds on both sides of the partnership. I am really glad to see such a leap being taken for the betterment of IT in Pakistan. I would be personally visiting Software Houses and IT Institutes in Lahore particularly, presenting and encouraging masses on both sides of the divide.

Well another revolution by Microsoft is on its way.

Silverlight has been officially released.


I have developed a little web application using Windows Expression Blend and Visual Studio Orcas and was really impressed. Well being a web developer I can forecast that this lethal combination of MS to integrate animation and the basic web is awesome. It was always a nuisance to include flash files into the web projects that I used. And the biggest catch was that a developer was really not able to manipulate the time sequences that were available in the animation. So Silverlight enabled project gives you more FREEDOM to work around with the animations to bring your web application to life.

Well Microsoft has come up with really handy versions of SQl-Server. The choice of using one over the other is quite a wise decision that one should make. Here I would specify some features of SQL-Server CE and SQL-Server EE which should be considered while you make your choice between the two.

I would like to mention here that both these editions are free to download and deploy :).

SQL Server 2005 Compact Edition SQL Server Express Edition
Reasons to use SQL Server Compact Edition:
  • When you want essential relational database functionality in a compact footprint
  • Ideal for mobile and desktop applications, including occasionally-connected
  • Embeddable in applications
  • Free to download, develop, deploy, and redistribute
  • Ideal for small server deployments as well as desktop applications with more rich requirements such as full text search and powerful XML query processing.
  • When you want a seamless upgrade to SQL Workgroup, Standard, and Enterprise editions
  • Free to download, develop, deploy, and redistribute
  • Reasons not to use
  • When you want to run as a service
  • When you need a multi-user database server
  • When you need the full functionality of SQL Server
  • When the footprint and memory requirements need to be compact
  • When you want to run in process
  • When you want to target devices
  • You can get the complete document here.
