    How far should Whidbey go with BP conformance?

    • 34 Comments
    We plan to make services created with VS Whidbey BP 1.0 conformant by default. However, the developer has opportunities to make the service non-conformant. For example, using SOAP encoding (adding the SoapRpcServiceAttribute) would make it non conformant...

    VM Ware vs Virtual PC

    • 30 Comments
    I've installed and used both VMWare and Virtual PC on my tablet. VPC has one key advantage: It lets the guest OS use the right drivers for your hardware. VMWare installs its own drivers for things like display and network. In my case, VMWare's virtualized...

    iTunes and mp3

    • 14 Comments
    I've been hearing a lot about iTunes recently so I decided to check it out. I have an mp3 player (not an iPod) so it was important to me to be able to download the music I buy in mp3 format. The iTunes download page had this statement: “iTunes...

    WSE, ASMX and the .NET Framework

    • 7 Comments
    Last week I gave talks at two design reviews on campus. I talked about what we're doing with ASMX and WSE. Many customers were confused about what WSE was and how it relates to ASMX. So I thought it'd be useful to blog about it to help get the word out...

    Let's all become cavemen

    • 6 Comments
    I just came across a statement made by a prominent industry figure about how WS-* is becoming so complex that it is not practical to implement a WS-* architecture with no tool/stack support. Well, what's wrong with relying on tools/stacks? Isn't that...

    I'm taking some time today to work on a stream-based Web service for posting blog entries while listening to Dire Straits' Alchemy . Too bad Visual Studio doesn't have a WSDL designer.

    What difference does it make?

    • 5 Comments
    I wonder if anyone sees a difference in putting Web services features directly into the .NET Framework vs. having those features in a separate download named Web Services Enhancements . Does anyone actually care where the feature comes from?

    Interesting lecture

    • 5 Comments
    I just viewed a recorded lect ure by Donald Knuth named God and Computer Science. It's definitely interesting content and, in many ways, thought provoking. I agree with most of his arguments except the very first one he makes. Favorite quote: “Infinity...

    Moving lots of data

    Recently I've been getting lots of questions about moving large files (or lots of data) between a WCF service and client. The question comes in multiple forms, e.g. How do I send a file that's many GB in size from the service to the client? Should...

    My two and a half year old son started playing Nintendo today. He can move Mario on land and in water and jump. He looks to be on track to be programming by the age of 5. I wonder what language I should teach him, C# or VB?
