I had every intention of writing the sequel to Reporting Services and WCF, but life has caught up.

I’ve been busy working with Corey Schuman on throwing the Atlanta Silverlight Firestarter Event, for which I also need to finish practicing a short presentation on Silverlight resources. 

Besides that, I’ve also been working with several Atlanta software community people on organizing a Leading Edge Microsoft User Group.  The goal of the group is to cover the CTP drops and Microsoft Research bits that do not normally get covered in the standard user groups.  You can find our website here: www.alemug.net .

So it’s been a busy couple of weeks.  During that time, Philip Munz, Ioan Hudea, Joe Imad and Robert J. Smith have fed my zombie jones with a mathematical model of zombie outbreaks: http://www.mathstat.uottawa.ca/~rsmith/Zombies.pdf

I have every intention of continuing with the WCF article.  After that, I also intend to do a walkthrough of the steps required to build a WPF application using the MVVM pattern – I don’t think there are any breakdown articles on the web about this – followed by posts about MVVM in Silverlight and a comparison of various UI design patterns – MVVM, MVP (PV and SC), MVC.  Finally, I want to post about a dream (a vision?) I had about Martin Fowler in the year 2029.
