Screen sharing apps are commonly used in business meetings where people aren’t sitting next to each other in a boardroom. Another use I have for them is in technical support for software where your client shows you on their computer what bug they discovered in your software.
The screen sharing compiler can be found at www.skype.com/interviews. I’m guessing by the name its meant for job interviews but there are other uses as well, such as students helping each other code.
This is a very useful site and it will probably wind up in the Skype application itself. It will run much better as an app than a web site when it comes to streaming audio and video.
This is the Canadian version of the “Hello World! program that every programmer learned in the first 5 minutes of their schooling. Compile this as a console project to test if your compiler is working.
static void Main (string  args)
Console.WriteLine (“Bonjour Monde!”);
I recently made changes to a web form that populated a PDF through an XFDF file. In the new code, instead of outputting to an XFDF, the page outputs to an HTML file. Everything worked great, except the HTML page lacked one feature the PDF did. If you have 2 fields with the same name on a PDF, when you update one field, the other field automatically gets the same content. This naming trick won’t work in HTML.
<form name="aForm" action="" method="" />
<input type="text" name="TextBox1" onkeyup="document.aForm.TextBox2.value = this.value" />
<input type="text" name="TextBox2" />
<asp:TextBox ID="TextBox1" runat="server" onkeyup="document.aForm.TextBox2.value = this.value"></asp:TextBox>
<asp:TextBox ID="TextBox2" runat="server"></asp:TextBox>
