    Blogland is big. I am currently trying to get a bit of an overview what people out in blogland are doing with WCF. And while I've been doing that in addition to a bunch of very long and (due to the time difference between Redmond and Germany) very late...

    ASP.NET's autoEventWireup="false" page config setting breaks ASP.NET Web Services (ASMX): NullReferenceException

    • 1 Comments
    I've spent the last 1 1/2 weeks doing one of the most fun (seriously) work assignments that each Program Manager of our team gets to do every once in a while: Servicing. So until yesterday night (I'm flying home to Germany today) I was in charge of ASP...

    A flock of pigs has been doing aerobatics high up over Microsoft Campus in Redmond in the past three weeks. Neither City of Redmond nor Microsoft spokespeople returned calls requesting comments in time for this article. An Microsoft worker who requested...

    TweetieBot - A BizTalk Services Experiment

    • 1 Comments
    Having an Internet Service Bus up in the cloud is not very entertaining unless there are services in the bus. Therefore, I built one (and already showed some of the code basics ) that’s hopefully fun to play with and will soon share the first version...

    Sin, Sin, Sin: How to do Simple, Webby, and Completely Insecure ASP.NET Membership Authentication and Role Authorization with WCF

    • 1 Comments
    We're all sinners. Lots of the authentication mechanisms on the Web are not even "best effort", but rather just cleartext transmissions of usernames and passwords that are easily intercepted and not secure at all. We're security sinners by using them...

    Azure: Microsoft .NET Service Bus

    • 1 Comments
    According to recent traffic studies, the BitTorrent protocol is now responsible for roughly half of all Internet traffic. That's a lot of sharing of personal photos, self-sung songs, and home videos. Half! Next to text messaging, Instant Messaging applications...

    What is a Claim?

    • 1 Comments
    If you ask any search engine "What is a Claim?" and you mean the sort of claim used in the WS-* security space, you'll likely find an answer somewhere, but that answer is just as likely buried in a sea of complex terminology that is only really comprehensible...

    What is a Token?

    • 1 Comments
    Earlier today I hopefully gave a somewhat reasonable, simple answer to the question " What is a Claim? " Let's try the same with "Token": In the WS-* security world, "Token" is really just a another name the security geniuses decided to use for "Handy...

    Heads up: If things go as planned, the BizTalk Services cloud will be unavailable for a few hours during the day on Tuesday 7/15 (U.S. Pacific Time) since we're doing an update to the services and to the SDK. I will post an update with the exact time...

    Wow! I'm watching the Oscars with my wife and she just thought I completely lost it during the last commercial break. I actually started cheering. Why? I've seen the first Microsoft commercial that made me think ... Wow. The firm starts getting how to...

    COM Is Love. Disagree? Stop reading. Agree? Still feel it? Well, I just learned that there's a very unique way you can show your love for COM. Own it! Own it? Yes, I'm completely not kidding. We've got an open position for a Program Manager to...

    One more (big) step to make Identity work ...

    • 1 Comments
    WS-* or REST? Is there an epic battle? How does Microsoft think about a big chunk of the web development community ignoring the beloved WS-* specs and preferring "HTTP programming"? Answer: We think that people make these choices of good reasons and we...

    WCF Schema Validation with Message Inspectors

    • 1 Comments
    There are a lot of blog entries that I'd write if they weren't already written. Stupid statement. No, really. One of the great qualities of the documentation that we built for WCF and WF and CardSpace is that it's completely legible and understandable...

    P2P Made Easy

    • 0 Comments
    One of the "niche" features in WCF that deserves a lot more attention than it is getting is our P2P support. The NetPeerTcpBinding looks, from the developer perspective, mostly like any other binding. The main difference between P2P applications and ...

    Dinner Now

    • 0 Comments
    Before I continue pointing out SDK samples, why not take a look at a great end-to-end .NET Framework 3.0 demo first? It's been out there for a while and hence this isn't really news, but in case you've not seen it (or the latest revision of it) go check...

    Yahoo Pipes. Aha.

    • 0 Comments
    I'm busy at a conference but just stumbled upon Yahoo Pipes via TechMeme and Dare . The little bits I read about it make that quite interesting to me (and put a big grin on my face) specifically because of this piece I wrote in 2003 and which also got...

    Blogger Types: Who are they? Who are you?

    • 0 Comments
    I see an increasing number of research efforts going on to get people’s heads around the blogosphere and how to figure out what's relevant and what's not. 4-5 years back it was quite easy to do so, because there were so few of “us bloggers” and you could...

    Poison Control.

    • 0 Comments
    A bad sign for how much I’m coding these days is that I had a HDD crash three weeks ago and only restored Visual Studio into fully working condition with all my tools and stuff today. I’ve decided that that has to change otherwise I’ll get really rusty...
