Another IADNUG meeting tomorrow. Eric Jacobs will present on how Two Rivers uses CodeSmith in their development process.
Check out this awesome WCF application that Clemens Vasters created. Go here to download the code.
Current at work, I’m doing some training on .NET (mostly ASP.NET, Enterprise Services, COM Interop and Security). For my three readers out there, have any tips/experiences/stories related to training you would like to share with me? The more I know what’s “best” or what “works”, it will help me relay information back to my students/listeners.
That’s right, you can go download IE7! Looks pretty cool and works rather slick!
Just ran into an issue with formatting values inside a BoundField column for a GridView in ASP.NET 2.0. For some reason, there's a bug when you specify a format for your data and HTML encoding.
To fix it, set the HtmlEncode property of your field to false. Doing so will apply the formatting to your output. Thanks to Jeff for posting this info!
I received this funny link by way of Levi.
After years of being disparaged by some in the software development community, the waterfall process is back with a vengeance. You've always known a good waterfall-based process is the right way to develop software projects. Come to the Waterfall 2006 conference and see how a sequential development process can benefit your next project. Learn how slow, deliberate handoffs (with signatures!) between groups can slow the rate of change on any project so that development teams have more time to spend on anticipating user needs through big, upfront design.
This is awesome! I...
I need to add this book to my “to-read” list…
How many of you out there use the DataSource controls (SqlDataSource, ObjectDataSource, XmlDataSource, etc.) within your ASP.NET applications? Just want to get a grasp how people use them and like them.
Just released! A new Indigo (WCF) portal! It’s jam packed with samples, resources, and forums. Go check it out!
That’s right, you can get the January CTP for the Runtime Components for WinFX. Also this release, you can get a GoLive license for your production systems. Oh the sweet coding…
Nikhil has posted some great Atlas samples for you to look at. For those working with ASP.NET and want to get a start with Atlas, these are a great start!
While looking through my Google Analytics stats, I noticed there’s a lot of people out there visiting the blog!
Nice to see that I have a bast number of people tunned into my ramblings! Thanks for listening!
First of all, I hate the layout of Mexican (es-Mx) keyboards!! All keyboards here are qwerty but some of the main (en-US) keys are moved! For example, the @ key requires the use of the right-Alt and the left-Shift. Yeah, messed up...oh well, the key just reflects the widely used characters for the language.
Just wanted to say that I will have pictures posted of my trip on my flickr site for you guys to view. Hope you all had a great week.
I’ve been answering some questions on Google Groups dealing with ASP.NET web services. In some of the questions, people asked, “How do I send a <insert-user-defined-type-here> that’s in <insert-language-here> to a <insert-another-language-here> client?” Or, “Should I send a DataSet/XmlDocument/String to my client for my complex type?”. Clearly, there’s some confusion (or misunderstanding) about how types are represented in the service world.
The purpose of this post (along with the proceeding three) is to share the basics principals outlined by the tenets of Service Orientation. I will present the tenets in no particular order…the reason I started with Share...
For those of you that have not done so, update your Windows install! I got this blurp from Clemens Vaster’s blog post:
Important Information for Thursday 5 January 2006
Microsoft announced that it would release a security update to help protect customers from exploitations of a vulnerability in the Windows Meta File (WMF) area of code in the Windows operating system on Tuesday, January 2, 2006, in response to malicious and criminal attacks on computer users that were discovered last week.
Microsoft will release the update today on Thursday, January 5, 2006, earlier than planned.
Michele Leroux Bustamante (dasBlonde) published a great article at the Server Side .NET describing how you should use/program contracts for Indigo (WCF). The article is about 20+ pages printed and a great read. Go check it out…
