Nothing like a code camp to get jazzed about all the stuff I could be working on. It is like a revival meeting; everything is new and exciting and possible.

I took in sessions about making DotNetNuke modules and the new ASP.NET Dynamic Data extensions. Very interesting stuff.  The Dynamic Data stuff appears to be a great way to bang out admin pages with minimal effort.

I also presented my little talk about the new Peer-to-Peer Networking goodies in the .NET 3.5 framework.  This is stuff that's been possible to do with the Windows API for a long time, but has finally been exposed through the managed classes for access by mere mortals.  Here is yet another chat application that demonstrates how it all works.

The real exciting namespace is its child the PeerToPeer.Collaboration namespace.  It is a framework for building p2p apps.  Didn't have the time to delve into it fully, as it is only supported in Vista. But it did provide the first compelling reason to upgrade, so I finally succumbed.

Just need to invent the 50 hour day to get to try out all the things I'd like to.
