The book shelf of a Connected Systems MVP

3 Comments »

A few days ago, Gøran Hansen of Capgemini and a an active member of the Norwegian Microsoft scene – as well as active in the Twittersphere, wrote a blog post called “A Software Craftsman’s Bookshelf” containing a picture of his book shelf with Software Development-related books, as well as a brief review of the titles. He tagged a bunch of other people – including me, so here’s my contribution to this book shelf meme

(I actually wonder why a UI-geek like Gøran chose a dull jpeg for visualizing his book shelf, so I’m stepping up – to show off that Mr. Non-UI guy can use the Stitch functionality in Deep Zoom Composer. The final product is hosted on DeepZoomPix – a Microsoft site for hosting Deep Zoom pictures.)

Update: Seems like the stupid wordpress.com blog hosting strips javascripts and object tags, so until I’ll get around to move this blog to a more sane hosting provider, I’ll have to put up a preview picture that hyperlinks to the DeepZoomPix site :-(

(A click on the image will bring you to the real Deep Zoom image)

I actually thought about rotating the stitched picture counter-clockwise, so that the titles of the books would be easier to read, but I postphoned it to a moment when I have more time to stuff like this :-)

A description of the books + Amazon links, as well as a list of people I’d like to tag will be added later.


Fresh start

Ok, I’ve bought some wordpress.com credits and pointed one of my domains, larswilhelmsen.com to larsw.wordpress.com. To break the no-blogging spell, I hope that starting fresh on a new site will help to get my fingers moving :-)

Currently, I’m on paternity leave, and when I start working again, it will be for Miles, Norway as a senior consultant. I will mainly do Microsoft- and Agile-related work and I am really looking forward to start.

While I’m away from work, I try to help out as much as I can in the Windows Communication Foundation (“Indigo”) MSDN Forum. If you have any questions regarding WCF, feel free to post in the group, or send me an e-mail.

In this blog I will mainly focus on Connected Systems; SOA/WCF, Smart Clients (including CAB/SCSF), synchronization and Live Mesh – when the API’s are out.

Wish me luck :-)
