www.iis.net site launched

If you haven't visited it yet, I'd highly recommend taking a look at the new dedicated IIS community site: http://www.iis.net This site has a ton of content about IIS 6. Checkout the "Downloads" tab for log-parsing utilities, MOM managmenet packs, lockdown tools, and more. The "TechCenter" tab then has an easy interface that you can use to search for whitepapers, KB articles, and web-casts. Best of all is the content the site has about IIS 7.0 -- which as I've blogged in the past is a major, major improvement to the Microsoft web platform. Read this blog post to learn more about the improvements, and then check out the "IIS 7" tab on the site to read even more. Here are the high-level sections to visit: IIS7 Overview Core Web Server (Componentization...

The next step for the Toolkit: Community Contributions

Well sometimes you need a little nudge, and we got just that via Scott's blog post earlier this week, kind of unexpectedly. So, uh, yeah, as some of you may have noticed, our content and code is now live on CodePlex in the Atlas Toolkit Project . The Team and I have been getting used to the ins-and-outs of CodePlex and figuring out what our developement process is going to look like using it. We've moved most of our code off of our internal source control servers up to CodePlex and have been doing our changes there. The last major piece has been cleaning up our test infrastructure and moving that up as well. That's kept us pretty busy but it's almost ready. If you're not familiar with CodePlex, you can read all about it on Korby's blog , but...

Looking for good SDETs to join our team!

We have a few positions open on our test team at the moment. The title for these positions is SDET (software design engineer in test) which is somewhat of a unique position at Microsoft. Scott Louvau on our team posted a good article regarding what an SDET is and you can read this at http://blogs.msdn.com/scottlo/archive/2005/06/29/434121.aspx . Essentially we're looking for people who would like to work on enabling ASP.NET/Atlas development via Visual Web Developer. We are looking for people who have test experience and good coding skills in VB.NET or C#. If this sounds like you and you are in the market for a job, we'd love to hear from you. Send me your resume at bash-at-microsoft.com Thanks, -- Bash Read More...

Script# brings compile-time and C# niceties to JavaScript development

I'm very excited to finally be able to point to this post of Nikhil's. I've known about this project from the start and am Super-Ultra-Mega-Excited (this expression (c) Andres Sanabria) about it, but until now I had to keep my mouth shut. JavaScript is in many ways a very powerful language, but it lacks a compile-time (bye bye type checking) and OOP is very unnatural. While some consider it the best language ever, most people who come from C# or Java just go "ugh!" the first time they have to write anything beyond a click event handler with it. Some continue to strongly dislike it even after they've gained expertise with it. I'm not judging, but... Wouldn't it be nice to keep the power of dynamic scripting languages but with all the niceties...

Red-Gate SQL Query Intellisense Tool (Free Download)

I've seen a lot of people rave about Red-Gate's SQL tools in the past. They provide a really nice set of tools that are well worth spending sometime to check out.

Cool Atlas PasswordStrength Complexity Control

Paul Glavich blogged about a useful little Atlas externder control he built that enables sites to provide real-time password strength feedback on the client to users as they create new passwords (for example: if you have only letters in the password it will list "weak", and then give you immediate feedback as you type and make it stronger). Below is a simple example of how to use it to point at a standard ASP.NET TextBox: Create New Password: <asp:textbox id="Txt1" runat="server" mode="Password" /> <PasswordStrength:PasswordStrengthExtenderExtender runat="server"> <PasswordStrength:PasswordStrengthExtenderProperties DisplayPosition="BelowLeft" PrefixText="Strength: " TargetControlID="Txt1" /> </PasswordStrength:PasswordStrengthExtenderExtender>...

IIS 7.0 on the MSDN .NET Show

Bill Staples and I did an interview with the MSDN .NET Show about IIS 7.0 that was just published yesterday. You can watch it online for free here . In addition to about 30 minutes of discussions about the new features and architecture are 30 minutes of demos. As I've blogged in the past , IIS 7.0 is a major, major update and improvement to the overall Microsoft web platform stack. You are going to see a lot more information published about it over the next few weeks as the first broad beta of IIS7 becomes available (it is included in Windows Vista Beta2). Watch the video (and read my previous blog post ) to learn more now. Hope this helps, Scott Share this post: Email it! | bookmark it! | digg it! | reddit! Read More...
