  • Blog Post: Part 2 of the test

    I've now posted the API by API changes documents for ASP.NET 2.0 as a download . (Note this is a bunch of Excel files) NOTE If you're reading this hear, you shouldn't -- I haven't updated this blog for at least 5 months, and am only posting this hear to get your attention. My blog has moved to here...
  • Blog Post: Browser Security Test

    Run 37 tests to make certain your browser isn't letting anything in you don't want. [via ACMEbinary ]
  • Blog Post: SQL Web Administrator

    Even with all of the many powerful resources at my demand to install, I still tend to install SQL Server Developer Edition. I guess it's just that I'm so used to just having that around for testing (and not wasting valuable CALs for testing purposes) that I just don't feel like installing Enterprise...
  • Blog Post: Meet the new boss, (not the) same as the old boss...

    In an attempt at our ongoing efforts to confuse everyone coming to MSDN balance the knowledge and workload at MSDN , we have shuffled a few of the Developer Centers around. While I will still be working on the ASP.NET Developer Center , I am reliquishing my duties on the Visual Studio Developer Center...
  • Blog Post: TechEd, will I be there?

    I haven't a clue. Last I heard I'd be able to go if I ride my bike there. Still, Scott & Rory will be there (along with a lot of other Really Smart Folk), and you'll even be able to get them to explain this in person...
  • Blog Post: aspnetPRO Readers' Choice Awards

    aspnetPRO magazine is now accepting votes for the products of the year in a number of categories. While I'm a little saddened that the ASP.NET Developer Center wasn't nominated as an Online Resource, I'll move on. Remember, if you don't vote, they win.
  • Blog Post: Tracing in 2.0, soon.... soon....

    I try not to push 2.0 information too much, as there are many others out there with far more knowledge on it than me. Having said that, I saw this new setting this morning. <trace enabled =" true | false " localOnly =" true | false " pageOutput =" true | false " requestLimit =" integer " mostRecent...
  • Blog Post: Custom Entity Classes

    It's been a while since I mentioned any new content on the ASP.NET Developer Center , and there's a reason -- I've been remiss, and haven't scratched any out lately. Well, I think the drought is over, I hope (I passed two more articles on to the editors yesterday -- although one you might not see for...
  • Blog Post: Querying RSS

    During my early (OK, post 8am) reading this morning I saw this on Jon Udell's blog . Like much of Jon's writing and "little apps", it blew me away, and got me thinking of how I could use it for myself. Maybe not using XQuery (likely too much for my head), but having a nice DB of posts, normalized to...
  • Blog Post: ... but who will manage the Managers?

    I know my blog is in serious danger of turning into a recruiting site or even (heaven forbid) a recruiters' blog , but I have another job offer for you. Our Site Management team (the good folk who keep MSDN and TechNet running tickety-boo to the tune of about 100MM page views (MSDN) and 19MM (TechNet...
  • Blog Post: February CTP now available

    In honour of March 2, we now present {insert ta da here} The February Community Technology Preview (CTP) of Visual Studio 2005. This month, we have new versions of Visual Studio 2005 Professional (for MSDN Subscribers) and the fabulous Express products: http://lab.msdn.microsoft.com/express/vbasic/default...
  • Blog Post: Second Edition, now with more brain-thumping goodness

    Just got a copy of the second edition of Advanced .NET Remoting by Ingo (and now also Mario Szpuszta ). I had the good fortune of squeezing my brain through it a while back (and lived!). While the talk continues, you really need to read as much of this book as you can. It's not only THE best book on...
  • Blog Post: Kicking tires, sniffing hydrants

    As many of you know, I'm often looking around at how "others" write their code. As such, this site is a candy store . OpenSourceCMS gathers together a large number of CMS-ish apps (classic CMS, Wikis, Blogs, Forums and more) into one testable site. The server gets rebuilt every two hours, but in that...
  • Blog Post: Learn ASP.NET 2.0 with Jeff Prosise

    Wintellect has some of the smartest .NET people on the planet these days, and Jeff Prosise is definitely one of them. Thomas (yes, the Spider King) has sent me a set of training videos featuring Jeff Prosise, showing you the ins and outs (and betweens) of many of the new ASP.NET 2.0 features. Check them...
  • Blog Post: Torremolinos!

    I didn't mention it a while back, but I recently changed Site Managers (from Christina to Chris -- we're not that imaginative when it comes to names around MSDN). Now, Chris brings our first communal effort to bear (OK, he did it all, but I'll share some of the credit) Presenting -- our new ToC . We...
  • Blog Post: Migrating AnandTech to ASP.NET

    If you don't recognize the name AnandTech , you're not a true "hardware geek". Anandtech is jam-packed full of übergeeks who live and breathe perf for their systems. They're overclocking, water-cooling, machine-modding sources of deep wisdom into these boxes we play with all day. So, what happens when...
  • Blog Post: Shooting trouble

    I was lazy today, and decided not to walk in during a beautiful sunny Redmond day, instead allowing the decongestants to soak through my head. However, I had one conference call I wanted to attend on upcoming changes to some site . While I was listening to the cool jazz while I was on hold, I scanned...
  • Blog Post: The Outlook Web Access team is looking for web developers

    Web-based mail is hot. Gmail, Hotmail, Outlook Web Access... They're all making headlines and showing off the richness of the web. The Outlook Web Access team is looking for solid ASP.NET developers to help build our next version. We're looking for people with top-notch development skills, who have worked...
  • Blog Post: Pimping the pros

    A number of Microsoft Regional Directors , Wintellect folk and INETA speakers have put themselves up on the auction block to help the victims of the tsunami in South East Asia. Get an hour of Jeff Richter , Joel Semeniuk , Scott Hanselman or many more. Solve more .NET problems than you know you have...
  • Blog Post: "How can I learn ASP.NET?"

    Bill Evjen has a great list of resources to help developers get up to speed on ASP.NET. Even worth it for veterans as well, as there is bound to be something on there that will make you say, "Wow, I didn't know about that." Well worth bookmarking as he continues to expand it.
  • Blog Post: I'm not dynamic, but your apps can be

    One moderately common scenario I've seen in requirement documents (or as someone likes to call them, "desirement documents") is the ability to dynamically build a UI form "on the fly" based on something - data table, user role, etc. While this has been shown a few times in the past, it's always good...
  • Blog Post: What's new in 2?

    I've started an attempt to get the various ASP.NET teams either blogging or (for me) ideally writing for MSDN about their favourite features in ASP.NET 2.0. There has been a lot written about the "Big features", but I think people are (or should be) also interested in the smaller refinements. Mike Pope...
  • Blog Post: Trust everyone, but always cut the cards

    There are a lot of ASP.NET Hosters out there. So, logically you want to build ASP.NET applications and put them on the hosters. Simple, dimple? Well, for you. You can fire up Visual Notepad, Web Matrix or Visual Studio .NET and hammer one out of silicon pretty fast. However, let's now look at it from...
  • Blog Post: ASP.NET and Community Technology Previews (CTPs)

    I know there is a *lot* of confusion around the Community Technology Previews that have been coming out for Visual Studio 2005 . I know because I get a *lot* of email about them. Which build is good, what's in them, etc. That's the prime reason John "The Experience" and I created this page . However...
  • Blog Post: Data controls in ASP.NET 2.0

    Have I ever told you how much I enjoy 2pm? That's when the "Here are the new articles that went live today" email goes out internally. I get to see what tasty morsels I can tell you about. Of course, I frequently don't get to telling you about until the next day, when you've already read them, but it...
