Introducing Practical .NET Insider

Visual Studio Magazine Tools Editor and Practical .NET columnist Peter Vogel is a busy man -- and it's all his own fault. Last month, for instance, Peter approached me about writing an occasional series of opinion columns based on questions and topics he runs across in his consulting work. Unlike the how-to flavored fare of his Practical .NET print and Web columns, these columns are intended to explore assumptions and pose questions.

The result is Practical .NET Insider. You can read Peter's first exploration -- focused on SOA build outs -- here. Next month, we'll publish Peter's look at debugging and what it takes to be good at it.
