The Weekly Source Code 17 - ASP.NET MVC Community Code Edition

I've been working on new Videos for ASP.NET MVC and the Mix conference, and I wanted to read some code that folks have created using the December CTP of ASP.NET MVC. There's a lot of good changes coming in the next Preview release and that feedback comes from active community members, so it's always good to read real source of real apps to see what folks are doing. And so, Dear Reader, I present to you seventeenth in a infinite number of posts of " The Weekly Source Code ." Here's some source I was reading this week. CodeCampServer ( source ) This application is a free open-source Code Camp management application, so if you're thinking of running a Code Camp, start here. As of this writing, it's build on the...

Generational GC (Garbage Collector) - A post-it analogy

I was working through the High CPU Lab Review which is basically caused by high CPU in GC. To understand what happens you need to know what a generational GC is and why it's useful. Last year sometime I used a restaurant as an analogy for how memory allocations in general and managed allocations in particular work and it turned out to be a pretty popular post. I guess analogies just make things stick in a way that pure technical descriptions don't:) Well, I had a discussion a long time ago with the guy that came up with the restaurant analogy about generational GCs (like the .NET GC) and sometimes the discussions just space out way too much but here is the gist of my simplified explanation of a generational GC. Post-It Analogy Rather...

Getting to know Silverlight 2 Beta 1

What we've been up to in DevDiv... Today, Scott put up a mammoth post introducing the upcoming Silverlight 2 Beta 1 . His post includes an 8 (yes, 8!) part walk through building out an application using it.  I really have to hand it to Scott on this one, and I'm not just kissing up because he's my boss.  He's been talking about this post he's been working on all week, and I went over a little bit of it with him on Monday.  But when I saw it live this morning, my jaw just about hit the floor.  To say the guy is prolific is an understatement.  Just earlier this week, he put up another big roadmap post . I've been spending this week playing with the overall Silverlight 2 Beta 1 experience, which...

First Look at Silverlight 2

Last September we shipped Silverlight 1.0 for Mac and Windows , and announced our plans to deliver Silverlight on Linux.  Silverlight 1.0 is focused on enabling rich media scenarios in a browser, and supports a JavaScript/AJAX programming model. We are shortly going to release the first public beta of Silverlight 2, which will be a major update of Silverlight that focuses on enabling Rich Internet Application (RIA) development.  This is the first of several blog posts I'll be doing over the weeks and months ahead that talk in more depth about it. Cross Platform / Cross Browser .NET Development Silverlight 2 includes a cross-platform, cross-browser version of the .NET Framework, and enables a rich .NET development platform that...

Reader Email: Private Bytes remain higher than expected

I got this question today (through the blog) and normally I don't really answer questions sent to me directly through the blog for a couple of reasons already mentioned in the Contacting Tess... post, mostly because I don't have the time to answer all the emails that drop in, but also because I feel that the blog should benefit everyone so I am much more apt to answer questions posted in comments so everyone can benefit from the answer. Having said this, I felt that this was a question that lent itself well for answering in a post. Hello, I've been enjoying your blog posts and wondered if I could ask you a question. I'm not sure whether or not I may have a memory leak problem. I have been monitoring thru perfmon and found that...
