  • Blog Post: IIS Express Announced

    [This post was published on my Posterous site a couple of days ago and should have automagically appeared here. It didn’t, so I include it now for completeness] ScottGu has blogged about a new version of IIS, IIS Express that’s intended to deliver a mix of the ease of use of the ASP.NET Development Server...
  • Blog Post: TechDays Presentations on ASP.NET and jQuery

    It’s taken me a while to get around to this – apologies for that – but below are my PowerPoint decks from UK TechDays. I’ll also publish the app I used to demo jQuery (most of my jQuery session was based on the app so the PowerPoint below is quite short). I should get that done in the next hour or so...
  • Blog Post: Search Engine Optimisation

    Here I go again on the importance of SEO and the benefits of the SEO Toolkit :). I put together a short slide deck summarising things. The important things to know are [a] it’s good at what it does [b] it’s free [c] it works with IIS7.x so if you have Windows Vista / 7 / Server 2008 / Server 2008 R2...
  • Blog Post: Web Platform Slideshow

    This is a deck from a session I delivered recently trying to round-up some of the highlights of the next wave of .NET from a web dev perspective. There’s not much of a narrative to it but it hits most of the ‘futures’ highlights (with a brief detour into current MVC). Feel free to use any / all of it...
  • Blog Post: Deliver better video with IIS Smooth Streaming

    IIS Smooth Streaming is one of those “wow” technologies – watch the video and you get a real sense of just how dramatic a difference it can make to the user experience for media delivered over the web. I’ve put together a short video showing how easy it is to get started creating and delivering content...
  • Blog Post: Search Engine Optimization in ASP.NET

    A few days ago I posted about my adventures with the SEO Toolkit and some of its features for ensuring your site is as SEO friendly as possible. Today I noticed that K.Scott Allen has an article in the September issue of MSDN Magazine entitled " Search Engine Optimization with ASP.NET 4.0, Visual...
  • Blog Post: Adventures with the SEO Toolkit

    Well, TBH, things didn’t get off to the best of starts as my attempts to install the SEO Toolkit via the Web Platform Installer failed. I hunted around but couldn’t find it. Funny though that if you click the link on the SEO Toolkit page , Web PI fires up and offers you the option to install the SEO...
  • Blog Post: Web Platform Installer

    I’ve realised that despite all the noise about it , I’ve pretty much managed to ignore the Web Platform Installer (WebPI) to date. Which is a shame because I know it does some pretty cool things, takes a lot of the drudgery out of configuring your machine and, from today, I’m actually convinced that...
  • Blog Post: And Getting ASP.NET Routing Up and Running in Web Applications and on IIS7

    Just a quick follow-up to my previous post. To get routing working in a web application project you can follow exactly the same steps for the website in my previous post . I also deployed my website to IIS7 running in the default app pool. To do this you need to make a couple of changes to the <system...
  • Blog Post: MIX 09 Announced

    PDC's just out of the way and it's already time to start thinking about MIX. I saw this logo on the website and thought we were going to be expected to run a 10K in the desert. Fortunately it's 10K of storage and a challenge to do as much as you can with only 10k. There's also the traditional restyle...

  • Blog Post: ReMix UK 08 Developer Track

    Things are starting to shape up nicely on the developer track so I thought I'd try and give you a flavour of what you'll see if (surely "when"?) you join us in Brighton in September for ReMix UK. There'll be a big focus on rich client with Silverlight, WPF and IE8 featuring prominently. You...
  • Blog Post: Securing Against SQL Injection

    Anything that can be done to make it easier to build more secure applications has to be a good thing. I spotted that yesterday we announced three new tools to help protect and identify potential SQL injection issues with ASP.NET and classic ASP applications. HP Scrawlr A black-box analysis tool that...
