IIS – Or Another name : Into (really) Insane System…

18 באפריל 2008

This is another rant post. be warned. I guess when you are playing with fire, you need to take into consideration that you might get burned. Well I have been working on a Asp.net application recently. All went well except some minor irritating issues, not something surprising when dealing with betas. Anyway, after developing on the ASP.net development server for a few days, the time had come to deploy it to the IIS, right?. It just didn't work. First I thought it must be some firewall/router issue. I am not that an network...

Moved to Ajax Extensions 3.5 and got this problem?

17 באפריל 2008

  "Could not load type System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebParts.ContentPlaceHolder' from assembly..." This problem was very annoying: for every second (you read it right) run of my website I got this exception. Next time it would go up fine. It was very consistent in a very inconsistent way. Searching for a solution turned out nothing. After some trail and error I found out this section inside the web.config. 1: <dependentAssembly> 2: <assemblyIdentity name="System.Web.Extensions" 3: ...

Live Blogging 2008 : RESTing with Ron Jacobs

8 באפריל 2008

Like some of my colleagues, I too prefer to go sessions made by non-Israeli guests, and Ron Jacobs reputation is well ahead of him, note the ARCast show he been running in the past. Well Ron is a good lecturer, funny, honest and smart but or he wasn't prepared or a very extreme case of bad luck happens to him, because the presentation just didn't take off. A plague of problems varying from screen resolution, unresponsive IIS to non-working demos. And boy the demos where supposed to be simple, nothing complicated, running an HTTP Post command to his...

Live Blogging Teched 2008: Go Gold with Silverlight

I believe in telling the truth, I think that a genuine building critics when it is delivered in a professional way is very important for both sides. I think that the blogging platform puts us in a unique position where our thoughts and criticism can be heard up. Even an experienced lecturer may err and each and everyone us can learn and improve. Maybe because of the natrue of live blogging, criticism is more impulsive but the issues are still there. I have been to good lectures and bad ones, but this one really surprised me. The session...

Live Blogging Teched 2008 : Sexy Asp.net session

7 באפריל 2008

Well, Noam make his music act, today with a crazy funky electronic saxophones (I hope I am not wrong with that). Noam choose an hard stuff for this demo. Noam introduced two brand new technologies that are still half-baked and smell like Atlas CTP, Dynamic Data and MVC. I still have nightmares from Atlas, all three at this stage felt right, and give you the feeling that you really want to use them now, because this is the right way to build web applications, also it's an infrastructure that you know you need, I know that I have...

Live blogging 2008 : Entity Framework

Second day, and it is a better day. First I am feeling much better, the keynote headache is gone, and I got enough energy to get me trough the day and the party of course. And the day still got better with this session. The session was high pace, but still Pablo the lecturer was clear and focused, and barely made it all in time. I got to admit Entity framework is a technology I just didn't had the time to use and play with it. I came to this session to understand what...

Blogging from Teched 2008 : Summarization of Day 1

Hello, I will not bother your time with my experiences, in the airport, early arrival into the Hotel, and unfortunately I was to sick to do anything then rest in my hotel, until it was time to go to the bloggers event. Even to that I was late. But I got the feel of it, and got the lovely bloggers goody box. I attended the main Keynote, which I suspect was too long, and I left it with a growing headache that didn't help me with my Indian illness. I Admit that I was...

Changing perspective

2 באפריל 2008

This is part 2 of my India story. This is part 1. When at first I thought about the option to go to India, I didn't really believe that I could. The reason is what is stopping most of us of doing crazy stuff. We have our scheduled work ahead of us, and so did I. When I asked my bosses at Sela if it is possible for me to go on a 3 weeks holiday to India with only one week notice, I also asked them to handle it in a try-catch...

Slowing down…

To live simple life, is really living it. There are time in a man life, that a he knows that a change must comes. It's like a gnawing feeling in the guts, doubts before falling a sleep, disturbing thoughts. I was really trying to return to the high pace of life. Life we are all experiencing it. High school -> Army (for the Israelis one :)) -> University -> Work -> Marriage -> Children... I took a break, went...
