Jackie Ng posted a great post on that I wanted to share with you – some great tips for anyone starting out with Mapguide development or even seasoned pros!   I especially enjoyed his thoughts on antique browsers =) Thanks Jackie!  I have a couple of things to add to his list.   My first addition to his list would be Chrome.  I did have a few problems with firebug causing random ajax errors to occur in the Mapguide javascript which prompted me to switch to Chrome and its development tools.  I have not looked back…

The other thing I have to add is 6.0.  Every .NET developer should have this incredible toolset.   It really does enhance the Visual Studio IDE.  The javascript/ajax support is great with some syntax highlighting, the .NET refactoring and code generation tools are huge productivity enhancements once you get them figured out.   I couldn’t live without the navigation and  on-the-fly code analysis tools.  The built-in de-compiler can be incredibly handy too, and ties right in with the navigation tools.

If you are into Mapguide dev, I strongly encourage you to check out Jackie’s post – and become a regular reader of .

It’s been an insane month.  Just wanted to take a moment to let my friends, colleagues and my loyal readers know that my wife popped out our first child the other day.  July 12th at 2:10 am Ms. Georgia Laine Pawliuk-Maidlow was born and let me tell you she is full of awesome!  Both Mom and Babby are doing great.  Both Mom and Dad are both pretty tired  =)  Here is a picture for your viewing enjoyment =P
