Two months speaking spree

Friday, October 5, 2012

If you’ve been checking my blog in the last couple of weeks, you might have noticed I haven’t been posting much. In the past two months I have been traveling around the world, speaking in conferences and local user groups. So to sum up this intensive, fun times, here’s a list of all conferences I visited and links to all the material I showed. What’s new in WCF 4.5 Building scalable, low-latency web apps with Windows Azure Embracing HTTP with the ASP.NET Web API ...

WCF or ASP.NET Web APIs? My two cents on the subject

Monday, March 5, 2012

A couple of weeks ago (around Feb. 16) the WCF WebAPIs - a framework for building RESTful/Hypermedia/HTTP services, which was in development over the past 1.5 years as a side-project on CodePlex, has been formally integrated into ASP.NET and its name changed to the ASP.NET Web API. These past two weeks, there has been a lot of questions among WCF developers: What does it mean that the Web APIs are no longer a part of WCF – is WCF dead? Has SOAP gone bankrupted? is HTTP the new way to go for interoperability? To get a...

This post continues the previous posts on web-hosting features, and this time it is about the improved streaming capabilities of WCF when it is hosted in IIS. Previous posts: 1.

ServicePointManager.DefaultConnectionLimit == 2? The Depends continues…

Tuesday, June 28, 2011

A few days ago I posted about the missing documentation about ServicePointManager.DefaultConnectLimit and that its default value is not always 2 (the value actually depends on the target server, if it’s a remote server or your localhost). Yesterday, after my advanced WCF course, I got an email from one of the attendees that pointed out that indeed the default value is 2 for remote servers, but only in desktop applications (console, win forms…). In WCF services that are hosted in a web application, the default value for outgoing connections is actually 12 times the number of cores. ...

My lectures at Visual Studio Live! 2011

Tuesday, June 7, 2011

In October I’m going to attend the Visual Studio Live! 2011 conference at Microsoft HQ in Redmond, this time not as a listener, but as a presenter. I’m going to have two sessions in the conference, the first one will be about the new features of WCF 4, and the other one will be about the new “face” of ASP.NET, which is of course ASP.NET MVC. I have a lot to tell you about these technologies, so were going to have lots of fun (and hopefully learn something new in the process). But before...

SDP lectures slides

Thursday, March 24, 2011

  Last week we had our annual SDP conference in Sela’s offices and in Crowne Plaza in Tel-Aviv. I had the pleasure of talking about several of the technologies I’m dealing on a daily basis (well, almost every day) which were: Entity Framework. The first day of the convention was all about Entity Framework. Erez, Gil, and myself gave several lectures dedicated to Entity Framework. The day ended with an “EF expert panel” which I enjoyed very much. I think will make a habit or doing this panel every year. ...

PDC 09 updated – ASP.NET 4 Futures

Wednesday, November 18, 2009

I must admit, I had not used ASP.NET for a long time (lately I’m a Silverlight fan), so most of the things were new to me. What I liked about this session is that it was indeed about “Futures” because some of the things shown were still in development. The topics discussed: Helpers RAD development using ActiveRecord over Entity Framework for Asp.Net MVC Introducing TaskScheduler to perform background tasks (no need to code with System.Threading no more) Sending Emails with verification New control for file upload with progress bar Simple mechanism for using routing with web forms (aspx). Instead of using “\App\Welcome.aspx” use “App\Welcome”....

קבלת שם קובץ בעברית מ-Http Handler

Monday, January 5, 2009

לא פעם יצא לי לעבוד עם מערכות asp.net אשר צריכות לאפשר שמירה והצגה של קבצים מצורפים (attachments) – לפעמים מדובר בתמונות נלוות לפריט מידע, לפעמים במסמכים או בכל קובץ אחר. במקרים בהם עובדים במערכת WEB, לא נהוג שהמערכת תחזיר UNC למיקום הקובץ ברשת, אלא המערכת צריכה להחזיר את הקובץ עצמו, באמצעות URL חד-ערכי שמזהה את הקובץ. אבל, במרבית המערכות הקובץ לא ישמר על שרת ה-IIS, ככה שניתן לו URL משלו, אלא הקובץ ישב בשרת קבצים של-IIS יש גישה אליו, או אף אולי ב-DB, ויש צורך ליצור HTTP Handler על-מנת לאחזר...
