  • Blog Post: Sharing the fruits of summer's labors

    I did a lot of XML work over the summer. One of the byproducts was a pair of XML readers . The XmlElementReader wraps an XmlReader that is positioned on an Element node and allows you to read that element, but nothing more.

  • Blog Post: I'm on MSDN TV

    As Craig noted, my talk from the Applied XML DevCon in Portland, OR last August is now online courtesy of MSDN TV ! It's in two parts, here are links to part 1 and part 2 .

    I spent my summer deep in an engineering project, the purpose of which will come to light in coming months. Now that the first phase of that work is complete, I have time to start posting again. And what better place to start than by answering questions raised by Simon Fell's recent post about the...
