SSW Software Audit

Companies from across the globe have been taking advantage of SSW's Software Audit Services. The common message that is received from clients is that getting their software built in-house can sometimes lead to a failure to identify design flaws and architectural insufficiencies. They need an unbiased second opinion from a knowledgeable source that can make recommendations to improve the quality of their software. More on SSW software audits

The Cutting Edge

Merry Christmas Developers!

The past few months I have been jet setting around Australia with Microsoft presenting Microsoft Access: Upgrading and Migrating to SQL Server and .NET. The whole East Coast has sold out with the hands on labs being some of the best! Due to the overwhelming response for this conference, Microsoft have listed more dates for 2005 .

Boolean member declarations should always be prefixed with "Is" or "Should" or should be past tense verb like "Printed" or "Enabled". This way you can tell easily which way the Boolean is directed. More on Rules to Better Code

Cheers until next time, Adam
