  • Blog Post: Backwards compatibility and and preserving search engine ranking

    Phew – that was a long title! This is a follow-up to a post that my colleague Josh wrote recently. I started typing a comment in response to one of the comments and it got a little bit cramped in the text box so I decided to post it here instead. To summarise, Josh is looking into migrating...
  • Blog Post: Learning MVC: Backwards compatible routes

    I’m lucky enough to have sneaked on to some MVC training created and hosted by my talented colleagues Simon Ince and Stuart Leeks . For some time now I’ve threatened to migrate theJoyOfCode.com blogging engine from ASP.NET WebForms to MVC and this is the perfect excuse to make this happen...

  • Blog Post: New .NET Attributes

    The very first talk I gave on .NET was on custom attributes – some time way back in late 2000 or early 2001. At the time I was espousing the benefits of using custom attributes to add on details of unit tests and bug fixes. There have been many additions to .NET since then and I spied a couple of...
  • Blog Post: Background and Foreground GC in .NET 4

    Another interesting new feature of the CLR 4 comes from the Garbage collection team. On this version, they are adding some performance enhancements on the memory allocation process. The feature is commonly called “Background GC”. But what does it actually mean? As applications are starting to consume...
