What’s up?

I know, I know.. I’ve been extremely lazy lately, at least when it comes to sharing knowledge with you guys. I guess the main reason for that is that I’m currently on parental leave which means that my days are not really spent researching, architecting and developing as much as they are spent entertaining Miranda… ...

Going to Redmond!

Well, in a couple of days I’m off to the Microsoft Campus in Redmond! I’m attending an Orcas Adoption Workshop next week which will take me through all the new stuff in Visual Studio 2008 and .NET Framework 3.5. So far, I haven’t got the agenda so I have more or less no idea who ...

In my last post, I asked for help with a problem we’ve been having with caching of dynamic controls – and I got some from Dave Reed. Dave works for the ASP.NET team and if his blog isn’t on your roll yet, add it ASAP – it’s simply brilliant. Dave explained the problem: Apparently, the ...

Enterprise Library 3.0 available

Can’t believe I almost missed this completely! Turns out the P&P team released Enterprise Library 3.0 the other day.

Web Service Software Factory

I know, I know.. I’m very late to this game, but I just looked through a webcast about the Web Service Software Factory and it really looks pretty interesting.

XML improvements in .NET Framework 2.0

I just found this rather interesting article on MSDN that describes what’s new in the System.Xml namespace for .NET Framework 2.0. The main points I took note of where: Always use the new factory methods for creating XmlReaders and XmlWriters (i.e. XmlReader.Create and XmlWriter.Create) Use XslCompiledTransform instead of XslTransform. Apparently, it compiles your XSLT into ...

vwd.webinfo

Aarrghh.. I keep getting a vwd.webinfo-file added to some of my websites. According to this post on the ASP.NET forums, this file was previously known as vwdsettings.xml and contains information about what services to start in order for the web app to build and run properly. Now, to my knowledge I don’t need any services ...
