News tonight for developers

Come back tonight at a little after 9 p.m. Pacific Time tonight.

Some big multi-billion-dollar corporation would like to announce something.

Why?

Developers, developers, developers!

:-)

Like I said, Mix07 is gonna be interesting and, no, I don’t need to be inside the conference to have a front-seat position on the battlefield.

UPDATE: the news is now up.

  1. Just guessing here… With “Developers, developers, developers!” you refer to MS but could it be something from the Google?

    Some kind of an online development environment, and/or a new programming language?

    You do have the “Developer Tools” tag there. ;)

    We’ll see.

  3. [...] Mix 07 is coming up, and while I’m ambigious if I would go there even if I could, the Scobleizer sez MS is going to announce something big and cool for developers (possibly a new tool) today! Personally, my bet is on online software [...]

  4. Hmmm … “multi billion dollar company” does narrow it down somewhat, but not quite far enough to put a finger on it! 9:00pm there = midnight here at the other end; guess I’ll wait until tomorrow :(

  8. Hi,

    we are a portuguese group of students and we’re doing a project in human resources management about Google. Since you work (worked) there, we wonder if you could answer a set of 6 quick-aswer questions and maybe 2 or 3 fellow workers of yours too. It won’t take long. If you’re available, our email is renata.carneira@gmail.com.

    Thank You!

  10. It has to do something with .NET and something with Silverlight I bet :) (oh yeah and something with MAC too)

  12. I know a secret! :-)

    So VERY cool, too- Being a former developer, I am envious of modern day tools. Where was this stuff 20 years ago?

  14. If it is a *full* .Net runtime, feature complete, on OSX I’d be happy. Not bothered about VS.Net (it is a mess) but .Net would make my week. If they can get Apple to ship it with Leopard then better still.

    More realistically have Microsoft decided to actually release some *working* dev tools for WPF on XP? :P

  16. Everything MS put out was supposed to be ground breaking these past 10 years. If anything people have systematically flocked away from their tools in the past few years.

    I remember the same type of thing when ASP.net came out. How separating the code from the style was so revolutionary, and how code behind was going to be all the rage.
    What actually ended up happening?
    Most people ended up using PHP instead.
    This is probably something about MS Atlas or something lame like that.

    I just got my Linux Journal in the mail yesterday though, and guess what?
    http://www.linuxjournal.com/

    Woops they did it again. CoverPage page too. Atlas will be the new obscure MS technology like aspx was a couple years ago.

    Where’s that oragami buzz now Mr.?

    Beer, why do you insist on derailing every thread into your “I hate Microsoft” garbage?

    We don’t even know that this has anything to do with Microsoft, and if it does, we don’t know the details. Yet that didn’t stop you from posting yet again, “Microsoft sucks”. Grow up.

  20. @bytehead: Forget about right-coasties, what about us in GMT-land? 5 am :O

    Guess I’ll read the ho-ha over tomorrow morning’s cornflakes.

  22. Would someone like Mr. Scoble, who parades about anything that is going wrong at MS, announce something positive about them? …He would really suprise me…

    I’ve said plenty nice about Microsoft since I left Microsoft too. You must have missed the several nice interviews I’ve done with them. You must have missed that at the Web 2.0 Summit I said Microsoft did the demo of the year http://scobleizer.com/2006/11/10/demo-of-the-year-photosynth/ . You must have missed that I gave the Zune a pretty nice review http://scobleizer.com/2006/10/26/my-thoughts-about-zune-vs-ipod/ considering and praise my Xbox all the time. Not to mention I was in the Wall Street Journal defending Microsoft in December. http://online.wsj.com/public/article/SB116490323676636989-HnHPKLzkyy9xKy2wnokbd2bc_bE_20071130.html

    Hell, just go back to last week and watch the Electric Rain interview I put up. http://www.podtech.net/scobleshow/technology/1456/editors-choice-electric-rains-standout-presentation-application Or the Thirteen23 demo I put up. http://www.podtech.net/scobleshow/technology/1422/thirteen23-demo-with-scoble-at-sxsw That’s a preview of the kind of stuff you’ll see at Mix. Or a demo of Digipede, .NET grid tech that’s pretty cool. http://www.podtech.net/scobleshow/technology/1429/demo-of-building-a-grid-with-digipede

    You also must have missed the TechFest tour I did with Kevin Schofield. http://www.podtech.net/scobleshow/search/Kevin+Schofield or the Interview with Sanaz Ahari of Microsoft’s Live.com team: http://www.podtech.net/scobleshow/technology/1298/meet-microsoft-livecoms-sanaz-ahari

  26. My guess is it’s something with Google Apps. I only guess this because of the emails being sent out to Google Apps users warning of the Google Apps Calendar downtime scheduled for Thursday.

    Direct Outlook syncing would be great, and would make Robert happy about having to use Google Calendar.

  28. Since Scoble says it regards “Developers! Developers! Developers!”, I’m thinking it’s something other than Google Apps, or Google anything.

    I’d guess it’s a Microsoft thing, since “Developers! Developers! Developers!” is Ballmer’s trademark. ;)

  30. For us mac users, Panic just released a cool app called Coda.
    It puts all the tools necessary to develop/maintain web sites, etc in one window.
    Very clean design.

  34. Rocky, I need ELCO cables with TRS plugs for my adat machines. I only got XLRs with them.
    http://cgi.ebay.ca/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ih=009&sspagename=STRK%3AMEWA%3AIT&viewitem=&item=190105121839&rd=1&rd=1
    I found some on ebay, but I can’t order them new here in Canada because ELCO cables are no longer being made. Musiciansfriend does not want to ship them to Canada, because they are special order.

    I only need 1 more ELCO snake for my 3 ADAT XT20′s.
    Do you know what online store I could buy it at?
    It’s not that I don’t like computer recording. I have an RME hammerfall with 24 tracks in ADAT optical, BUT, I enjoy having the actual machines there in the rack with the BRC before I dump it into the computer.

    I can no longer use XLRs and I really need 1 more ELCO to TRS to hook up to my console. Any info is appreciated, thanks.

  36. No demos. It’s got to be an interview about some sort of SaaS stuff – maybe the democratizing the web thing. IL targetting JavaScript.

  38. Ok, it’s 12:52 EDT which by my estimation makes it 9:52 PDT. So where is the big news? SOme of us have to get up in the morning!

    These won’t work with ADATs.
    There’s one up on ebay but the ELCO adapter is female.
    Musiciansfriend just refuses to ship special order to Canada. They will only do in stock.

    What I will have to end up doing is buying another used ADAT XT20 on ebay and just take the ELCO cable and resell the machine. Otherwise I may have to wait ages for one with a male ELCO to show up there.

    Thanks for trying though.

    If your lead involves getting one for $50 or something please share, because I would still be interested.

    I purchased this RME card to go along with the stanford http://ccrma.stanford.edu/planetccrma/software/

    I could have just lined everything in directly with 3 cheap AD/DA converters, but not having recorders or the BRC anymore just takes away from the recording whole experience. The more LEDs the better.

  42. That should read the “whole recording experience”.

    I’m going to buy another ADAT next week if I can’t find just the cable, so if you have a lead, let me know before then. Somebody may have an old ELCO/TRS cable lying around collecting dust and I would so pay $50-60 for it plus shipping because I need it.
