IE7 for Windows XP SP2 now available

Lot's of others have already posted on this and I'm late to the party, so I'll be a pointer for those of you who may not have seen the hundreds of blog posts or news articles :) It has been a long journey working with the IE team and getting this amazing browser into the hands of customers. It is just a first step and there is so much more we will be doing. For developers, Pete LePage on my team is driving a ton of new content, improved developer center, some fun contests and more - I'll keep you posted. Links to read more details: IE Blog Pete LePage's Blog Somasegar's Blog I've been a bad blog delinquent and lot's of stuff in my queue, hoping to get better over the next few weeks, expect a bunch of fun and I plan to be more diligent! Thanks...

Great IIS7 Blog

Mike Volodarsky from the IIS 7.0 team recently created a new blog and has been posting up a storm of great IIS 7.0 related posts. Mike owns the "integrated pipeline" and "server core extensibility" aspects of IIS7 - which among other things now allow you to write ASP.NET/.NET HttpModules that can participate in any web request to the server (for example: you could implement forms auth and role security for ASP, PHP, Java requests). This gives you more power than ISAPI extensions/filters today - and best of all you can use any .NET language to build them. I definitely recommend subscribing. If you haven't checked out www.iis.net yet, then I'd also recommend setting aside a few minutes to review some of the great content on it. http://blogs.iis...

Visual Studio for Database Professionals and other Cool Data Management Tools for .NET

Earlier today CTP6 of the Visual Studio Team Edition for Database Professionals was made available for free download. VS for Database Professionals has been getting rave reviews, and includes support for database refactorings, schema and data comparisons, database unit testing, and automated data generation. You can learn more about it on its MSDN dev-center and Community page . You can also watch a nice Channel9 video with the team here . Two other data management tools that I've seen posted on http://weblogs.asp.net recently that look very cool and are worth spending time to check out include: MassDataHandler - A free CodePlex project that provides a utility library to help automate data generation for unit testing (it can be used within any...

Book: Elements of C# Style

A few months ago I had the opportunity to review Elements of C# Style and I really enjoyed it. It is a concise little book, great for a quick reference on everything for C# syntax basics to designing an inheritance hierarchy. Last week I ran into Andy Grey (one of the authors) and he gave me a copy.. I just love the form factor… small, <150 pages… easy to drop into your laptop bag! Enjoy! Read More...

Great Video and Slides for Building Occasionally Connected Client Apps

Steve has a great post (with Video and slides) for building offline apps… Worth a look! My guess is lots of client apps need "occasionally connected" features, it has just been prohibitively hard to build in the past… Has anyone tried this out? We'd love to hear your feedback and thoughts. Read More...

Visual Studio 2005 vs. Dreamweaver 8

Last week, a new set of videos comparing Visual Studio 2005 with Macromedia Dreamweaver8 became available. You can view these videos here . This series shows how you can use Visual Studio 2005 to build and deploy web sites more effortlessly than Dreamweaver8. The free Visual Web Developer Express features most of the functionality outlined in these videos. In case you haven't tried out the Express edition yet, go to the download site and get your copy today. It's only a 40MB download and comes with its own development web server, so you don't need IIS to create and debug your site. Check it out! Read More...

From closures to prototypes, part 2

In part 1 of this post, I exposed the differences between the closure and the prototype patterns to define JavaScript classes. In this post, I'll show the shortest path to convert an existing class built using Atlas and closures to a prototype-based class. I'll also show a few caveats that you need to be aware of. Here's an example of a class built using the July CTP of Atlas: Custom.Color = function (r, g, b) { Custom.Color.initializeBase( this ); var _r = r || 0; var _g = g || 0; var _b = b || 0; this . get_red = function () { return _r; } this . set_red = function (value) { _r = value; } this . get_green = function () { return _g; } this . set_green = function (value) { _g = value; } this . get_blue = function () { return _b;...
