We ship(ped) Beta 2!

It's been awhile since I've updated this page because life has kept me relatively busy. The work stuff is the easiest to write about right now, so I'll start with that.

Download Visual Web Developer Beta 2 and ASP.NET 2.0 Beta 2! These are the products that I've been working on. The ASP.NET forums provide great community support, and you can sometimes find me posting on the Data Forums. It's a bit of a nerve-wracking time, right after we ship, because the customers get their hands on our product, and we testers wait to see if there's some horrible bug in our areas that the customers catch and we didn't. So far, so good with mine. :)

Dealing with customers has never been a strength of mine, and I'm sure that all of my teammates from my EPICS days are laughing at the fact that I have to communicate with customers now. It's particularly frustrating when someone prefaces a "bug" report with, "Your Beta 2 sucks! Why are there bugs?" or gives a series of nonsensical repro steps that I'm somehow supposed to understand and follow. But there are benefits as well: I get to see how the customers are using my controls, and they come up with ideas that I never would have.
