Mon, 10 Feb 2003 12:43:53 GMTMicrosoft gives coders a bug-catcher. The software giant plans to announce on Monday that a plug-in created by security firm Sanctum, scheduled for release in March, will be the first to easily integrate with Microsoft's development platform Visual Studio .NET. The tool, AppScan Developer Edition 1.5, can be run on Web applications in real time to catch common programming flaws. [.netWire Headlines]

"Forgot to mention Nikhil's book: Developing Microsoft ASP.NET Server Controls and Components. For those of you that don't know Nikhil wrote the ASP.NET data controls, was one of the principle dev leads for all of the ASP.NET controls, and is just a super star all around developer." [http://www.simplegeek.com/2003/02/06.html#a169]
Sweet! ASP.NET Server Controls has to be one of the most practical features of the .NET framework. I'm sure there are developers out there who know how messy writing full blown web apps can get with a basic scripting language. ASP.NET provides a full blown OOP environment for developing sites with. Sounds like this book might be able to help out with extending that environment. I'm just surprised there are so few books covering this subject right now.[Stronglytyped.com]
It seems like a lot of votes for this book. I am just getting back into ASP.NET. I haven't worked heavily with it since the Beta 1 and 2 days in big development projects, having spent most of the last year into COM Interop, CLR, MC++, etc. What other ASP.NET books other than this and Prosise are really worth the money and don't waste my time showing me how to drag and drop controls onto a web form for 100's of pages?[Sam Gentile's Blog]
Sun, 09 Feb 2003 17:25:38 GMTThe Trouble With Superprogrammers. I have three main complaints with our industry's reliance on superprogrammers.
First, talk of superprogrammers is destructive to other workers. Superprogrammers get privileges, benefits, and recognition. The achievements of regular and above-average programmers pass unrecognized. Instead, these hard workers are reminded, day in and day out, of all that they are not. -- J.D. Hildebrand
The flip side to the How To Be a Superprogrammer article.
Sun, 09 Feb 2003 17:07:15 GMTCool C# feature spotted - Namespace Aliasing.
I didn't know about namespace aliasing before I spotted it in some sample code this morning:
using Channels = System.Runtime.Remoting.Channels;
This is really nice if you have namespace conflicts and need to disambiguate your type references, or if you're from the school of thought that says that you must always use fully qualified type names, but don't want to obscure your code with giant namespace references.[IUnknown.com: John Lam's Weblog on Software Development] [Sam Gentile's Blog]

Mon, 23 Dec 2002 23:05:32 GMTMy friend and super consultant Jon Oltsik has a new site built with Radio. The weblog is in process as are the links to the free reports he will post to his site. This shows how you can easily publish a standard site with Radio and comingle it with a weblog. More later as Dann helps him move this forward. If I was a consultant or an analyst (again), the first thing I would do would be to build a marketing site in Radio and publish it to my domain via FTP. The next thing I would do is start to publish a weblog on the topics I consult on (to start to capture the keywords in Google for that topic) and gain credibility with prospective customers. Many consultants get this, most don't. Frankly, if your brain isn't online, where is it? [John Robb's Radio Weblog]
