Introduction

For those .NET developers using Crystal Reports, you have probably used the devzone website for .Net developers.  This site was a place where you could find examples in C# and VB.NET among others on how to call a Crystal Report from your Web Application.  There were also forums available there as well.

Recently Business Objects, the company that owns Crystal Reports, has unveiled a new site called Diamond.  This website is meant to be the main destination for developers of all stripes when you have Crystal questions.  To get the low down on Diamond I did an email interview with Todd Error the manager of the site. 

First a little bit on Todd's background.  Todd started with Business Objects, working in Tech Support 8 years ago.  He then moved to the Strategic Alliances team where he worked on special projects.  These projects included things like integration kits with Digital Dashboard, Plumtree Portal and Siebel with Crystal. 

Next, Todd moved into a role working with Microsoft and integrating Crystal Enterprise into Microsoft CRM.  At the time this was the first "light" version of Crystal Enterprise with an integrated install which included a lot of custom reports.  From there he moved to the Crystal Enterprise Product team where he was the Product Manager for InfoView, Crystal Enterprises portal.  Todd now works for Tim Lang in Developer initiatives helping to build and drive a community infrastructure and content developers.
