How it was at Mobilize, the GigaOM event, or what is BYOT
One of the most discussed topic in IT communities and between professionals is BYOT (Bring Your Own Technologies). This week at Mobilize, the GigaOM event, it was two main topics to discuss. Both of them are related to the main 2011 trend: “People brings their own mobile devices to work”.
As custom software development company we are involved at BYOT challenge. After the years IT departments saying no to everything, they are finally saying OK. That’s also changing the level of input employees have on the devices they use.
So, the leading CEO’s has indicated 2011 as the “year when mobile IT was born”. “It was the year the IT industry figured out mobile, and it’s the year that mobile figured out IT”.

Microsoft has released update to it’s Windows Phone 7.5 Mango OS
The first reason to write this post is the news that “many people still don’t know Windows Phone 7 exists“. Meantime Microsoft has released the update to Windows Phone 7.5. We’ve been waiting this till May, and the reasons that MS main focus was on “communications, apps, and internet”.
Here is the first look into Windows Phone 7.5 Mango with the video and great description…

The Windows 8 blog said: “The most used tool in Windows 8 will be the IE10 browser. IE 10 is available as a Metro style app and as a desktop app. Metro style IE provides all the main navigation keyboard shortcuts and mouse support you’ve come to expect — creating tabs, moving between tabs, entering addresses, searching, and more.”
This will happen for sure, no matter in 2013 or in 2012. Windows 8 will came and we will develop the applications as well as for desktop and for the web. BTW, the desktop app continues to fully support all plug-ins and extensions. And Metro style for the web.
For the web to move forward and for consumers to get the most out of touch-first browsing, the Metro style browser in Windows 8 is as HTML5-only as possible, and plug-in free. The experience that plug-ins provide today is not a good match with Metro style browsing and the modern HTML5 web.

Looking to the few past month the future of Flash was not so bright. First Flash was rejected at Apple’s iOS, then Microsoft has banned it on the upcoming version of Internet Explorer 10. So is any future in flash development and what Adobe going to do to keep the internet market share?
For us as software development company this is really important question to keep support such technologies as Flash, Flex or Adobe Air. Adobe still message to developers: “Flash is still relevant, and Adobe is still investing in it”.
Adobe System highlighted Flash 11 this week, and looks like it will be available in October. Also it will be available Air 3 by the end of 2011. Let’s look what will be more under the hood of Flash 11…

Codename Roslyn project it’s a new type of compiler that will bring the flexibility of dynamic languages to C# and Visual Basic. Roslyn will be released as CTP (Community Technology Preview) by researchers from Microsoft.
Here at SoftElegance we are really interested in such initiative. “This project is about revising what compilers do”… We believe that bringing flexibility of dynamic languages to C# and VB it’s great idea. And idea of “Compiler-as-a-Service” also looks not so bad.
Here is some comments of Anders Hejlsberg about Roslyn project, he said at BUILD…

RussianNY is the leading Russian-American web-portal in New-York. It’s a hybrid of social and business network since 1998 with up to 90 000 registered users. The new testimonial has came to SoftElegance website from Mikhail Dudalenko, V.P., RussianNY.com:
“SoftElegance was brought to the project when it was about to fail. The team of talented developers made a quick turnaround. We were inspired by their efficient, professional manner. In six month we had stable version and six month later the system went live. By partnering with SoftElegance we were able to be on time and on budget.”
We are really proud to collaborate with the RussianNY.com project, to use the latest technologies such as .NET Framework 4.0, Microsoft SQL Server 2008, Windows Server 2008, and some additional frameworks and technologies. We are looking forward to keep long-term partnership and to help RussianNY to be the leading ethnic web-portal in the U.S.
It’s very strange or some misunderstanding that two greatest developers events will be at the same time in California. The first one it’s IDF2011 (Intel Developer Forum) in San Francisco, September 13-15; The second — BUILD (Microsoft Build Windows 8 show) in Anaheim, CA, September 13-16.
SoftElegance with the primary .NET Framework’s skills are attended at MS BUILD event.
What will be represented by each company at conferences and could it be the ‘Wintel’ alliance as it’s called in the press? As for sure that Microsoft as one of the IDF’s sponsor plans to show its upcoming Windows 8 OS. Will it be shown at the same time at BUILD?
