Bill Gates Delivers the Vision

View the keynote address by Bill Gates at Forum 2000, held June 22, 2000. Microsoft's chairman and chief software architect describes how Microsoft .NET applies the company's expertise in operating systems and other software to make the vision of the digital world a reality. Microsoft .NET will integrate myriad tools and services into a personalized experience that consumers can access the way they want at any time across a broad variety of devices.

Trustworthy Computing
Excerpted from an e-mail sent by Bill Gates
"Six months ago, I sent a call-to-action to Microsoft's 50,000 employees, outlining what I believe is the highest priority for the company and for our industry over the next decade: building a Trustworthy Computing environment for customers that is as reliable as the electricity that powers our homes and businesses today.

Show Title and Description Date Posted
What is .NET?
The momentum behind .NET continues to build. In recognition of this fact, and to clearly communicate what the focus of these shows will be moving forward, we have officially renamed our show "The .NET Show" (pronounced "the dot net show"). We will now embark upon an even more ambitious goal of providing you with information on a wide range of development topics to assist you in understanding how to design and develop great applications for the .NET Platform.

In this first "official" episode of the .NET Show, we will revisit the initial question that is always on everybody's minds: "What is .NET?" To help answer this question we will be talking with Charles Fitzgerald, who has been in charge of bringing together all of the various technologies within Microsoft and helping to create a unified infrastructure that will form the foundation of .NET. Later we will talk with Henrik Frystyk Nielsen, who is an architect focusing on incorporating SOAP (Simple Object Access Protocol and the topic of our last episode) into .NET to provide an open and scaleable method of providing a platform-independent way to access the services developers will write.
February 21, 2001

Using SOAP

SOAP stands for Simple Object Access Protocol, and represents the underlying structure of how applications can expose their interfaces across the Internet. Microsoft's .NET Platform relies on SOAP to provide application connectivity to virtually any type of computer system and be able to easily allow solutions to be built upon a distributed heterogeneous network.

In this episode, we will be talking with Dave Reed and Andrew Layman about how SOAP is incorporated within the .NET Platform, and how it was designed to be an efficient solution for distributed and discoverable interfaces and services. Later we will talk with Keith Ballinger, who will show us how easy it is to use the .NET Framework to provide SOAP interfaces for the applications that we are writing.

Active Server Pages (ASP) has long been the foundation for creating rich and dynamic Web sites using server-side scripting. With the Beta release of the .NET Framework, ASP has evolved into ASP.NET, and it now embodies many of the important key concepts behind the .NET Framework. In addition to being able to access any of the programatic interfaces exposed by the .NET Framework, you can now construct server-side code using any of the languages that are compatible with the .NET Framework.

In this episode of the MSDN Show, we will be talking with Mark Anders and Scott Guthrie about the architecture of ASP.NET. Later in the show we will hear from Doug Seven and Don Wolthuis from CodeJunkies.Net about their own experiences with developing Web sites that use ASP.NET, and how important of a role they think this will play in their future Web development.

Programming in C#

C# is a new and exciting programming language designed to bring rapid development to the C++ programmer without sacrificing the power and control that have been a hallmark of C and C++.
In this episode, we talk with Anders Hejlsberg, a Distinguished Engineer at Microsoft, who has been instrumental in the design, development, and implementation of this language and its role in the upcoming .NET platform. We also talk with Jeffrey Richter, a well-known programming author and consultant who has been working with C# for over a year now.

The .NET Framework

The .NET Framework represents the infrastructure components for the overall .NET Architecture. The Common Language Runtime, .NET Class Libraries, and the Microsoft Intermediate Language, combine together to provide services and solutions that can be easily integrated within and across a variety of systems.
In this episode, we will be talking with Anders Hejlsberg and Brian Harry about how the .NET Framework allows applications to easily take advantage of the overall .NET Architecture.

.NET Architecture Overview

The recently announced .NET architecture represents a lot of information that affects a lot of different areas of application development. With a scope that is far too big to cover in a single episode, we will be devoting the next several installments of the MSDN Show to uncovering the various features of .NET that are important for you to understand as you move your application development efforts forward.
In this episode, we will be talking with John Shewchuk and Mark Anders about the basics of .NET. Hopefully when you finish watching this episode you will understand a little more about the scope of this effort, and how it will both radically change, as well as greatly simplify the integration of applications on the internet and beyond.

Getting Ready For Win64

Windows 2000 is 64-bit ready, and the Windows 2000 SDK includes the tools you need to start getting your application 64-bit ready as well. In this special episode, filmed live at Tech·Ed 2000, we will be talking with Kyle Marsh and Stan Murawski about the upcoming release of a 64-bit version of Windows 2000, and what this means to application developers.

SQL Server

SQL Server provides rich and robust support for scaleable database solutions. In this episode, we will be talking with Paul Flessner, Vice President of SQL Server and Middleware, and Peter Spiro, General Manager of SQL Server. They will help us to better understand the overall architecture of SQL Server, how it fits within a corporation's data management infrastructure, and what some of the new features and aspects are for SQL Server 2000. Then, Matthew Drooker, Vice President of Systems Development, and Brad Imbach, Systems Developer, from Turner Broadcasting Sales, Inc., will join us to discuss how they used SQL Server for an internal project for managing reports of their on-air programs.

COM+ builds on COM's integrated services and features, making it easier for developers to create and use software components in any language, using any tool. In today's episode, we will be talking with Paul Flessner, Vice President of SQL Server and Middleware, and Joe Long, Group Manager of COM+ in order to better understand the overall architecture of COM+ Services, and then we will spend some time with Frank Redmond, Program Manager for COM+, to hear what he feels is important for programmers to understand as they develop applications using COM+.

Active Directory in Windows 2000

You've probably heard about Active Directory -- it's one of the most pervasive technologies in Windows 2000. But you may be confused about what it is and how to use it properly. In this Webcast we talk with Senior Vice President Brian Valentine and General Manager Dave Thompson about the Active Directory architecture and how it can be used by a broad range of applications. We also meet with Mike Mueller, from Visio Corporation, and find out about his experiences in developing an Active Directory solution during the beta phase of Windows 2000.

Conversations on XML & BizTalk

Everybody is buzzing about XML these days, but what problems was it really intended to solve? Is it only intended for the Web? In this broadcast we have a casual conversation with Adam Bosworth, one of the architects at Microsoft who helped to shape XML, Dan Rogers, a Program Manager who is working on BizTalk, one of the first technologies to utilize XML, and Michael Edwards, who heads up a team of programmers who chose to use XML to solve a real development problem.

Doug Seven and Don Wolthuis of codejunkies.net were recently interviewed on the Microsoft Developer Networks' web cast, "The Show". See what they had to say about developing in ASP.NET.


.NET Framework Overview

This session will introduce the architecture and technologies within the .NET framework, including the Common Language Runtime, ASP+, ADO+, as well as XML and SOAP support. Integration with COM and COM+ Services will be covered, as well as a discussion of the .NET Framework SDK.
