I just got done with a long afternoon of implementing a Windows Service to self-host my WCF service. It was a bit trickier than I thought it would be so if I can save you the headache I'll be happy. A good place to start is by reading these two MSDN articles: http://msdn.microsoft.com/m... http://msdn.microsoft.com/m... Next, you'll want to understand these support articles: http://msdn2.microsoft.com/... ......

A nice little article on leveraging MSMQ in .NET: http://www.builderau.com.au/program/dotnet/soa/Using-message-queue-services-in-NET/0,339028399,339274877,00.htm

If asynchronous programming in ASP.NET is something you haven't been doing, then you'll want to check this article out: http://msdn.microsoft.com/msdnmag/issues/07/03/WickedCode/. Instead of spending more $ on new servers or hardware you might be able to utilize async Pages, Handlers, and Modules to lessen the amount of threads waiting to execute.


This article proposes some great ways of making common sequences of operations on lists more reusable in .NET: http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/vcsharp/bb264519.aspx. It reminds me of some of the built-in set operations that are available in the SmallTalk programming language.


Here is a useful article containing an overview of the new simplified thread synchronization capabilities in Windows Vista: http://www.codeguru.com/columns/kate/article.php/c13387/. These include CONDITION_VARIABLE, AcquireSRWLockExclusive/ReleaseSRWLockExclusive, and AcquireSRWLockShared/ReleaseSRWLockShared.

I came across this simple, but useful article demonstrating how to use the built-in .NET GZip compression/decompression capabilities. It also mentioned this SharpLibZip open-source compression/decompression library that would allow you to open the file easily using WinZip. UPDATE: forgot to post the article link (whoops!) http://www.codeguru.com/csh... ......

A decent article on Events and Delegates in .NET: http://www.codeguru.com/csharp/.net/net_general/eventsanddelegates/article.php/c12933/.

http://msdn.microsoft.com/m... Richter describes how to use the Concurrency and Coordination Runtime (CCR), a lightweight distributed services-oriented architecture and a common language runtime (CLR)-based library included in the Microsoft Robotics Studio toolkit. "The CCR library is a managed DLL that greatly simplifies these tasks for the programmer. The CCR offers a number of classes allowing developers a simple object model that they can ......
