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...

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...

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...

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.

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.

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...

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...

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...

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...
