We had an issue recently that caused us some time and quite a lot of head scratching. We had made some relatively minor changes to our product and performed a release into staging for testing.

My good friend Wally McClure has written a short eBook on “ Building iPhone and iPod touch Applications for the .NET/C# Developer with MonoTouch ”.

In a previous post , I mentioned an obscure ASP.NET issue that had me scratching my head for a while. In order to track it down, I had to resort some dodgy debugging techniques which I wouldn't call exactly scientific nor particularly complex, but they did help, so thought I'd share.

I was discussing debugging of Javascript on one of the ASP.NET Ajax forums recently and thought I'd share how I go about it, as you'd be surprised how many people are unaware of this capability.
