Jeffrey Richter's Tip for Faster ASP.NET Applications

Mon, 23 Sep 2013 14:43:07 +0000

It’s been a while since I’ve last posted on my blog, but last week I realised that I have tons I still want to share with you. But I’m not much of a Facebook or Twitter fan (I struggle a little bit with ultra-short-form writing), so I guess I’d better go back to good old …

Whether recognized or not, customer relations is embedded in the fabric of every software development and IT organization.

Fri, 25 May 2012 14:12:57 +0000

HTML5 is a moving target.  At the moment, we don’t know what will be in future versions.  In most circumstances, this really matters to the developer. When you’re using Adobe Air, you can be reasonably sure what works, what is there, and what isn’t, since you have a version of the browser built-in. With Metro, …

Mon, 17 Oct 2011 14:02:28 +0000

Something I hear developers tell us all the time is that they take pride in being a developer.and that bugs are a dent in that pride. Someone once told me “I know I have found bugs years later, and it’s the worst feeling in the world.” So how can you avoid that sinking feeling when …

We love to hear stories about the many and varied ways our customers use the tools that we develop, but in our earnest search for stories and feedback, we’d rather forgotten that some of our keenest users are fellow RedGaters, in the same building. It was almost by chance that we discovered how the SQL …

The Metro Surfaces

Thu, 22 Sep 2011 13:34:00 +0000

Our perceptions of Windows 8 are currently based on the live tiles of Windows Phone 7.5 ‘Mango’ and the touch-based ‘Metro’ User-Interface supported by WinRT. The buzz is of a clean, well-designed, but decidedly retro user-interface based on JavaScript+HTML/CSS, and based in tiles that can be rotated, docked or run full screen but not resized. …

Microsoft Research, from Cambridge, is about to release what has the potential to become one of the most fun ways of programming in .NET you could think of. It is called ‘Gadgeteer‘ (well, officially Microsoft .NET Gadgeteer) and is based on the Open Source .NET Micro Framework. The intent is to allow embedded and handheld …
