My Fiddler Session in Sela’s Dev Days

Thursday, June 30, 2011

Today was my last session in the Dev-Days conference, and this time it was about Fiddler. In this 1-day session we saw how Fiddler can be used to sniff communication, use it as a reverse proxy, manipulate the communication, and how to extend Fiddler with your own custom inspectors and request/response tampering code. We also saw several extensions for fiddler such as the SyntaxView, the request code generator, and the FiddlerScript utility that enables you to edit the Fiddler’s script using intellisense. You can download the presentation and the code samples (including two sample inspectors I...

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...
