The Unstable Mind of a .Net Developer
Recently, I began work on building WCF services for a Silverlight application that will be hosted in Azure. While I cannot discuss some of the details of the application, I can definitely talk about some of the gotchas I encountered. One of the things that all developers writing WCF services for Silverlight will encounter is the dreaded cross domain ......

Each year, my company holds a global sales conference where employees and partners from around the world some together to collaborate, share knowledge and ideas and learn about future plans. As a member of the professional services division, several of us had been asked to make a presentation, an elevator pitch in 3 minutes or less that relates to a ......

In my previous post on this particular topic, I had mentioned a problem I was having when attempting to post with a new application. I did discover that not all applications are created equal. When I created a second application specifically for this post, it would not work at all. I have not yet contacted Facebook support to determine the root cause. ......

Well, the presentation at Day of .Net was a success. I had over 50 attendees at my session on System.Diagnostics, some very good questions and I hope some good things will come out of the talk. For those of you who went (or who were unable to go), I have uploaded my slide deck and demo project. You can get them here. If you have any questions about ......

Over the past several years social media has grown from just a few sites to a booming industry. With the wealth of information and entertainment available on sites like YouTube, Facebook and Twitter, it is easy to see where it has come from and why it has stuck. Little wonder why people, developers and companies have sought to leverage the connections ......

This is the second in a series on architecting software solutions where I discuss items that need to be discussed, addressed, resolved, etc. prior to finalizing any system designs.. Part I of this series “Know Your Audience” can be found here. One of the easiest pits to fall in when architecting software solutions is to attempt to design the solution ......

After a too long hiatus, The Unstable Mind of a .Net Developer is back. In fact, a lot has changed since I last posted almost a year ago. I plan on correcting that and over the next couple of days, I will be continuing my series on Architecting Software Solutions – Part II Setting Your Limits. It will be good to be back. In the meantime, I will be presenting ......

To be honest, while I was writing the original Adventures in System Diagnostics post, I had no intentions of turning it into a series. Since then, however, I have given consideration to implementing in a production environment (already written, the sequel) and also to developing custom listeners (not yet written, soon to be the threequel?). With these ......

This post marks the beginning of a series on architecting software solutions/designs. Understand, this is not an attempt to explain, compare or endorse any of the many patterns and methodologies that already exist. Nor am I proposing a new pattern or methodology. I am attempting, however, to shed light on some items I have found over the course of my ......

On 09/09/09, I blogged on the System.Diagnostics namespace and specifically the TraceSource class. I wanted to follow up that discussion with just a little more information about using TraceSource in production applications. One of the things mentioned in my original post is that in order for Trace to function within an application, that application ......
