  • Blog Post: EMTF 2.0 Beta released

    It's been a couple of months since I first blogged about EMTF . Since then I've been busy refining and extending the framework and I'm happy to announce that the beta release of version 2.0 is finally done! Special thanks to Josh Poley since a lot of the new functionality is based on his feedback. So...
  • Blog Post: HTTP debugging for Silverlight developers (Mac OS X edition)

    Many posts have been written about how to debug problems with issuing HTTP requests from Silverlight applications, particularly in the context of web services and WCF (see for example Debugging Web Service Usage in Silverlight 2 or Faults and Exceptions when using Web Services in Silverlight 2 ). As...
  • Blog Post: Back from Portland Code Camp

    The Portland Code Camp yesterday was a blast. In fact, it was one of the best (un)conferences I've been to so far with a wide variety of topics and I'd like to share my personal Top 3 Best of Portland Code Camp 2009 (but keep in mind that that's 3 out of 5): Patrick Cauldwell did a presentation titled...
  • Blog Post: Introducing EMTF

    A while ago a needed to do what I like to call quick and dirty testing , i.e. getting as much test coverage as possible in a given period of time. To make things worse, I was working on a client-server feature requiring a bit of setup in order to work in the first place and wanted to cover both sides...
  • Blog Post: And another award for Skinkers...

    If you read my Silverlight-based P2P live streaming client wins MediaGuardian Innovation Award post you might say that this is getting old but at the same time I really think it's worth mentioning that there is a product and a partnership involving Silverlight resulting in two awards won in the UK within...
  • Blog Post: Reflector add-in (proof of concept) for highlighting platform APIs

    I was talking to one of our partners at MIX about the new security model in Silverlight. In case you're not familiar with it yet I recommend reading The Silverlight Security Model (as well as part II and III if you're interested in the details) on Shawn's blog since he explains it very well (see also...
  • Blog Post: Silverlight-based P2P live streaming client wins MediaGuardian Innovation Award

    The first MediaGuardian Innovation Awards were held two days ago in London. Its motto - at least according to a big banner on their website - seems to be: "Some great ideas never see the light of day. We celebrate the ones that do." With that in mind I'm very pleased that one of the winners in the category...
  • Blog Post: Setting up Silverlight 2 remote debugging on Mac OS X

    Let's face it: Silverlight is awesome! So are the Visual Studio Tools for Silverlight. One reason why it is so awesome is that you can run your applications on Windows and Mac OS X. But what if you need to debug an application while it is running on a Macintosh? Since there are no development tools for...
  • Blog Post: The day before MIX...

    So, I finally made it to Las Vegas. However, not without a four hour delay in Portland due to a leaking lavatory which made it necessary to use another aircraft. That of course caused me to miss most of the presentation of The King of Kong meaning I got to watch the last three minutes of the documentary...
