I am a software developer but it is still very useful to understand SEO and it's ramifications when building a website. The 15 minute SEO List is a good SEO cheatsheet. Also the Google SEO Starter Guide is good ......

Were I am contracting at right now has a new development domain. Because of IT security rules it is fairly isolated from the domain my computer normally logs into (for e-mail and such).

Essentially the snap-in communicates with the service using WCF to get the data that populates a particular form. When the form was loaded it could take between 10-30 seconds depending ......

My company recently purchased a software called dynaTrace to be used for performance diagnosis. It primarily started as a Java tool but they do support .Net as well. Since my company is entirely .Net based I will explain the product from that point of view. The application works by using MSIL injection to put essentially a header and footer into each ......

Several blogs I follow have mentioned that SafeCode has released there Fundamental Practices for Secure Software Development guide. I had thought that this was released a while ago actually and the document is dated October 8th. Oh well, it is a good reference regardless. The mission of SafeCode.org is "SAFECode is dedicated to increasing trust in information ......
