Can a web app be offline and work like a smart client? YES it can
I am a strong supporter of smart clients. They could not have been anything better than smart clients. Smart clients are the big thing for any of us developers who write code for the desktop. But I do keep in touch with some of those things happening in the web world in which I spent a fair amount of time. Smart clients are basically those client side apps which have these 4 characteristics specified below 1. Intelligent Deployment and update2. Local resource utilization for UX3. Connected and operate ......

Security considerations for smart client applications - I
Security is one of the areas which I am constantly interested in and as my work revolves around smart clients in the last few years I decided to write down this post. Many of these items described below would apply not only to smart clients but for most applications (irrespective of Web services, Server side apps, alike). I don't consider myself a strong SQL developer hence I am not comfortable right now to post such security considerations for SQL code. May be some day later. Do note that these ......

Today I was debugging some code and was not able to break into some code of a component; the debugger just failed to recognize it. Turns out the method was decorated with the [DebuggerNonUserCodeAttribu... Its a neat way to restrict code from being debugged/stepped into. The attribute can be applied to structs, classes, methods, properties and as one may guess not for interfaces. Do note that these attributes are useful only to debugging tools so if you end up writing an implementation for ICorDebug ......

Do developers really need money or something else?
Came across a post from Software by Rob blog which has an interesting article about what developers (old school programmers many of them you can say like me...) really need in a programming job. Many of those points seem to be too true. But in my personal analysis I am opinionated I should say. Partly because I am not doing a day in night out coding job these days... But then for now I shall keep my thoughts to myself :) ......
