Microsoft is genius – disable an idea by stop the support and bring technicial difficulties into play – in time.
After 3-4 years just say there are only few hundred users anymore – YES because you want it so Microsoft!
There is no new source code for years on NetOffice because Codeplex stop to support SVN code commits in 2014 – do you know that? Yes i know git is nice but i’m happy with SVN as the one and only comitter. So git resolve problems i dont have. ( I’ve been tried to find a friendly alternative to Ankh SVN in git but i failed – the last wast Atlassins Source Tree but this software want calling home or doesnt works.)
So, i want support the code on github now with Caio Pete and Josef Izso(two fabolous guys) and commit new versions, Josef helps me here to have actual code right now on github.
But i dont like github. I give support only on codeplex as long is possible. For the future you have to contact me on my mail addresses public.sebastian[eetx]web.de or microschuft[eetx]hotmail.com
As codeplex has been started i feel young, now i feel old(as a developer).
At this time a big thanks to my former friend Matthias Viehweger(kronn.de) in Germany. He helps me to find good documentation and translation in year of 2008 for the NetOffice idea.
Most of the documentation in NetOffice – its him.
So codeplex is dead, but what about VSTO?
In 5 years now, a lot of people(okay maybe 10) ask me in the discussions how i can make a donation by giving money and i say no sir!
Here is why:
I like to have a personal playground. As a professional developer i must do things i’m not happy with, for the time for the money for the customers or whatever.
Few years ago a senior developer give me adivse “Dont be in love with your project – never” One of the best suggestions ever in my life(i didnt realize this at this time in age of 19)
But i want to have everything perfect(because this is my character – some people say i need a doctor – be fair and dont ask my ex-girlfriends)
The real life for a pro developer isn’t very perfect, you must bring imperfect solutions and see how a customer make money with bullshit you give him and you ask yourself how this world can be happen.
So the professional developer life is my yin and the open source projects is my yang. I can do everything what and when i want – here is my love in a good place.
And if i need a break for few weeks i can do that.(I’m also sick of NetOffice sometimes but after 1-2 weeks i want have it back again with full power)
Now imagine the scenario people spend me money, someone need help and spend me money and i’m in holiday/break means not responsable. These is the scenario i fear because its not fair.
When people paying money to you this means you have a contract – legal or not. This is a grant/general promise i can not give.
Heute hat Microsoft offensichtlich umfangreiche Änderungen an Hotmail(sie nennen es jetzt Outlook Live oder so) vorgenommen.
Ich kann mich mit akzeptablen Script/Sicherheits Einstellungen nicht mehr im Browser anmelden.
Zum Glück gibt es genügend freie gute Mail Clients mit SMTP und Pop3 Support.
DANN HALT NICHT !
(Was ich immer sage: Um richtig Schaizze zu bauen braucht es einen Inder)
Stackoverflow.com is one of the greatest source information for a developer when you search for a problem.
But there is no chance for me to use this sites for postings because its a security nightmare.
Limitless scary third party domains here you have to give access for JS to do anything.
NO WAY! (This is what QA is about)
Why so many developers-in mind- trust them?
Today i create some new trial solutions based on WPF with some new PC’s.
The WPF reactive response in compare with Windows Forms is terrible.
Windows Forms is soo much faster!. (I dont need designer binding stuff, Xaml and kind like this)
Imitating WPF behavior in Windows Forms is easy with some wrapper classes.
WPF looks more beautiful, thats all.
Yesterday, i ve been visit a developer conference in Athens and speak about the C++ managed/umanaged scenario.(MS C++ is the only language there can handle both scenarios twices in a simple method anyway-fulll control)
Some people ask me why you so angry about MS? and why you still works as a developer in Microsoft Environment?
Go away if you dont like!
Thats a realy good question what i find.
My answer is as follows:
I’m a developer in MS technologies sience 1999(as a professional in age 19) and at this time, the tools are good, better as today, the ideas was good and the spirit was good. (good means good at his time of course…. no match for today) Today i see the quality is lower and lower, and dont believe in the service software strategy what the Microsoft Marketing so call it “Cloud”. So it is easy to left off but i dont want – i just hate Cloud and JS and all this Money Money Money scenario. Imagine: If 1000 developers left off MS doesnt care, if the same 1000 developers still stay and scream “WE DONT WANT IT” this can be the start of a real movement. I generaly miss some critical comments in the microsoft developer world. all MS dev bloggers, it-newspapers find everything totaly good, the microsoft world seems to be sooo happy – is this your real world as a developer? Not for me…
So i dont left Microsoft, i just say “NO” to the “Cloud” – this is more hard as just left off the MS environment. Excuse me for “my crazyness” in the future.. it is because i want to be as loud as possible because it seems to be i’m alone.
Vom Genossen Stalin ist bekannt das er Todesurteile immer gerne vor dem schlafen gehen unterzeichnet hat. Dazu hat er dann Bemerkungen angezeichnet “ist nicht genug – nur toten reicht nicht”. Danach ist er dann friedlich schlafen gegangen. Ich verstehen zumindest jetzt seinen Standpunkt etwas besser. In einer gerechten Welt wurde ich Nadja Sadella in meinem Keller elendig zu Tode foltern und das ware immer noch nur 1% von dem was er verdient hatte. Und so lege ich mich nun friedlich schlafen – trotz der Moglichkeit der Exekutive und im Geiste bei Joseph Stalin.
