Tesco@Home application making the news

News travels fast and far from the joyous Übergeek land that is the Microsoft Professional Developers Conference.

Here are some noteworthy articles about the Tesco presentation:

I also like the BBC's Rory Cellan-Jones blog entry where he aims to explain the PDC event to the public. Rather pleasantly he says:

"The audience is mostly quietly enthusiastic, sometimes cheering "awesome" new software features - the loudest applause was for a Tesco executive presenting a new online shopping application hosted in the cloud."

Thanks for all the continued enthusiastic feedback. I have asked Paul Dawson from Conchango to bow at regular intervals to accept thanks for his team's design and development of the prototype application.

Stay tuned to this blog to be the first to know about the Tesco API as we begin to unfurl a beta version in the coming weeks.

Post a Comment

As this blog grows in readership - and because it carries the Tesco brand - I have had to become more careful about the sort of comments that are acceptable. The good news is that I'm a champion of free speech so please be as praising or as critical as you wish! The only comments I DON'T allow through are:

1. Comments which criticise an individual other than myself, or are critical of an organisation other than Tesco. This is simply because they cannot defend themselves so is unfair and possibly libellous. Comments about some aspect of Tesco being better/worse than another equivalent organisation are allowed as long as you start by saying "in my personal opinion.." or "I think that...". ... followed by a "...because.." and some reasoned argument.

2. Comments which are totally unrelated to the context of the original article. If I have written about a mobile app and you start complaining about the price of potatoes then your comment isn't going stay for long!

3. Advertising / web links / spam.

4. Insulting / obscene messages.

Ok, rules done - now it's your go:
