C o v e r Y o u r A S P . c o m
What a month! When it was over I had a total of 6 job offers,
and ended up staying at the same company, but working from
home. I'm certainly glad that's over! It makes it hard to
concentrate on anything when you have no idea what you'll be
doing next month.
The Open-source project has been slow, but we're finally
getting close. Talk about a sharp learning curve! Although
SourceForge.net (where the project is hosted) has excellent
documentation there is still a lot to learn.
Their admin tool is huge and gives us an enormous amount of
free funcionality: forums, mailing lists, code repository,
bug and enhancement request tracking and a lot more.
So far the zips are uploaded, and administrators assigned.
I'm still struggling with SSH/CVS to import the code though.
Still, once it's all set up there are some awesome new
enhancements coming to the site, especially the online
database administration. I can't give you any details yet,
but you'll have a fully integrated version of my favorite
db tool included in CYA soon. It's open-source too!

Shukie Lok from London, U.K. won April's contest and a license
for iisCART2000 and my favorite book from Sams Publishing!
REMEMBER - the contest is now monthly. The current contest
will end on June 30th.
The main prize is the brand new CodeCharge Studio worth $499!
Check it out:
For a change this month I picked another excellent ASP.NET book
from my bookshelves, with an introduction by Microsoft's Mark
"ASP.NET: Tips, Tricks and Code"
Check out the reviews at Amazon.com:

The recent events at CoverYourASP
- I need your help! As discussed in the latest newsletter,
I'm exploring ways to open up CYA to you, the readers. I am
making it open-source, and being a Microsoft junkie I
haven't had any experience...
I'm looking for volunteers to teach me how to take this site
open-source, and also for a small trusted band of what I'll
call CYA Evangelists to help me run that aspect of the site.
If you're a long-time CYA member that has watched the growth
of the site over the last 2 years then I want to hear from you!
You'll have full administrator access to the site and will
help manage the code submitted by others. It's not a
privilege I'll give lightly, but there will be rewards given
to those who step up to the plate. I'm looking forward to
taking the site to the next stage of development - and you,
the readers, will benefit too. Already I have had some very
cool modifications to the code.
If you think you're an Evangelist, or just want to offer
advice on open-source, please contact me...
- Just to keep you up to date, I heard that the CYA open source
project was approved on SourceForge.Net yesterday, so there is
(slow) progress being made. There is a LOT going on over the
next few weeks though, so don't hold your breath.. ;-)
- The search is over! Read "How I found a job (or four)"..
- UI usability and consistency is very important to me, so I
was pleased when Ken Schiff introduced himself yesterday.
Ken is also known as The GUIguy and for good reason - he's
been improving UI's and training developers for years. If you
have an application that needs a little tweaking, check out
- I'm famous-er! Check out my article that was published in
aspnetPRO magazine this month. It looks even better in print!
If you haven't seen the magazine yet, you should subscribe.
It really is the best ASP.NET magazine I've seen, and you
can receive a FREE trial issue.
- I have updated the download of this site in preparation for
the move to open-source. The next step is to upload it to the
CoverYourASP project at SourceForge.Net. After that I will
be setting up the selected project coordinators with admin
rights to that project and we can get started!
I'm sorry it's taken so long, but May has been the craziest
month of my life! After 6 job offers and handing in my
resignation the strangest thing happened. My current employer
asked me to stay on and work from home (and made it worth my
while). So all the pain and suffering over the last few months
was almost for nothing! Hopefully now I can return to the
CoverYourASP project in a better state of mind...
- Shukie from London, U.K. was the winner of May's contest! We
have a special prize for June - CodeCharge Studio is the
latest version of the application builder that has huge
improvements over the previous version!
- Behind the scenes things are happening. You just can't see
them yet. The CoverYourASP open-source project at SourceForge
is about 50% set up now, with a small group of volunteers in
place to help with the admin. I'd like to thank Dave Kawliche,
Aaron Robinson, Larry Bruscatori, Mike Lynch and Shane Bauer
for responding so quickly.

support during my job hunt, especially those who went out
of their way to offer me a job which I then turned down.
Working from home will be "interesting" during the summer
with 3 kids under 7. I've come to an arrangement with them
that I'll work from 7am to 3pm, then quit and go swimming
with them or play with the quad bikes until they go to bed.
Then I'll work some more in the evening. Of course, trying
to come to an arrangement with my 2 year old boy will be
an ongoing process, but I intend to have some fun with the
family this summer...
Thanks Guys! Speak to you later.
