Windows Workflow
I've been digging into Windows Workflow the past couple of weeks. Very interesting stuff. Once you get your head around the paradigm, it seems to have a lot of possibilities. One thing that concerns me a little, doesn't seem to be a lot of community support around it. Perhaps I'm not looking in the right places. I'd like to see what Microsoft has in store for the future of WF. I've seen reports of it being merged with WCF, and I can see where this makes some sense but does that mean that WF is getting ......

Composite UI Application Block (CAB)
I was able to attend the CAB training session at Redmond earlier this week. It was a very informative couple of days. We were able to meet and talk with the dev team of CAB. We went through a series of Hands On Labs that will be available soon. I am still trying to get my head around the how CAB works at a detail level. I have a good understanding of things at at a higher level. If you are building a larger client application (non ASP) then you would be doing yourself a favor by looking at it. It ......

Moving to v2.0
I have seen a couple of posts recently about moving code bases to v2.0 of the .NET framework when it becomes available. One that caught my eye was by Sahil. Two things struck me about the post. First the title, “.NET 1.1 Folks Please Take Note”. Aren't we all 1.1 folks at the moment. Last I looked there wasn't a go live license available yet. But more to the point is the comment about making sure your current code will work with 2.0. In the exchange of comments he made the statement to ......

More on Trusted Deployment
A recent post from Mike Sampson sheds even more light on permissions and ClickOnce. It would seem that Beta 2 will make this process a little easier. The process sounds more complex then it really is. Currently in order to raise the permissions for an assembly you have deploy "something", generally an MSI will do the trick, to all of the machines. With the new method, the cert has to be done once, then ClickOnce can request the permission change on behalf of the app. I feel this to be a much better ......

ClickOnce and Trusted Application Deployment
For those that have tried to use No Touch Deployment the biggest hurdle was the security. If you install or run something from a network file share it will run with Intranet Zone settings. One of the really nice features of ClickOnce is Trusted Application Deployment (TAD). TAD uses public key cryptography to identify what is know as trust-license issuer. Once the client machine knows who the trust-license issuer is, then the ClickOnce application can be configured for a higher level of trust. It ......

Improving .NET Application Performance and Scalability
This has finally been released. No matter how much you think you know about this subject, there is always more to learn. This looks to be a good resource. I only wish they would make a format that would fit on my PocketPC. This is the kinda stuff I generally read while my son is doing his Tae Kwon Do class.
