Programmers Bunny .NET 3.0

I have got admired .NET 3.0 and its Suprising features for quite a long time from the day one its released,Basically Microsoft has released the .NET Framework 3.0 formerly known as WinFX. It combines the existing 2.0 framework with four awesome new features.

Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF), formerly known as Avalon, is the new graphical framework for Windows and web based development. It provides the richer features of the Vista operating system, and provides a UI boundary for development.

The most significant feature is Windows Workflow Foundation (WWF), which provides the workflow foundation for embedding workflow applications in any CLR based application. The WWF is also now available to XP and Windows 2003 Server operating systems as well.

Windows Communication Foundation (WCF), formerly called Indigo, is the new communication architecture to enable applications to connect over the network. Basically, this technology will combine .NET Remoting, Web Services, and Microsoft Message Queues into a single model.

Windows Cardspace is the replacement for Microsoft Passport, and provides a digital identity repository that can be interfaced by an application. This is also built into Windows Vista.

.NET 3.0 is completely combatable to .NET 2.0 applications, but adds important functionality for application developers.

If you are a Microsoft .NET programmer and if you still haven’t even read/worked on .NET 3.0 please do it ASAP,as soon the whole world is turning into .NET 3.0 applications.

Time to get into one of my deliveries today…meet you again with more information on WPF in my next article.


Nandhi Hills

Last saturday evening,suddenly a thought come to me why don’t we can try Nandhi hills as a one day trip while we were discussing about a trip for Kudremukh. So I just informed my office friend ‘Vijay Anand (KK)’ (I hope prakash knows the definition for KK 🙂 ) that why don’t we can go as a one day trip for Nandhi Hills tommorow.

So our trip was planned and with us Prakash, and Deepak said they are joining  and in the late night 10.00 PM I called my another friend Raghul (Indeed he belongs to my hometown) and checked whether he is ready for tommorow’s trip he said Ok and I went to sleep . So on Sunday early morning ,I got up early and ringed up Raghul and he was not picking for about an hour (later he said, he was in bathroom…I don’t know what he was doing there for 1 hr any clues guys ) .So I decided to get ready myself and then called Prakash and Vijay  to know about there status but they were ready  before me . Deepak got dropped since he has to go for Church this morning as per his mothers call.

Later while having a cup of coffee at Koramanagala Murugan Idli shop ,I thought of to give a call to Shreedhar and checked whether he is available ,he replied me positvely that he is ready and will wait at Bommanhalli to pick him.

So I  drove the car to Koramangala Water tank  and picked Vijay and Prakash and we straight way went to pick Shreedhar,we picked Shreedhar and then thought of to give a call to Raghul from Vijay cell (Raghul doesn’t knows who’s number is that) ,and this time he is caught up and I spoke to him and asked him to get ready where I can pick and go. Initally he said that he is busy and later I convinced him.

Now we are all set and our journey started from BTM Layout and went thru Richmond Road,Cubbon Park,Rajbhavan,Mekri Circle and Finally hebbal fly over where we got struck up from there to continue,So I told Vijay to give a call to ‘Prabahkar’ my project team member and friend (he has been already to nandi hills.. ) and know the way to go ‘Devanahalli’ where new international airport is located. We got to know the road to Devanahalli and started driving the car in the  beautiful highways, It was a moderate cool climate on Sunday morning and I were in full holiday and relax mood(My mind was saying udai you are out of  the projects for about  another 12 hrs… so enjoy),I drove the my lovely esteem in about 120 KM and stopped at a place near devanhalli to get the pooja items (yes .. dharu only 1 King Fisher(for me),1 full bottle MC and other side dishes…)

We passed the Devanhalli New International airport and after a 1 km driving we took the left turn which shows the sign board for  Nandhi Hills (22kms) .It is about 60 to  65 kms  travel we reached the peak of Nandhi hills (don’t forget to collect the hill entrance ticket  which costs 60 Rupees )

Nandhi Hills is a very good place for one day trip,but please make sure you take all the food and other items prepared yourself. It  have costed as totally 2000 bucks for 5 persons including petrol.

 Below are the Pic’s taken at Nandhi Hills
