Ok, I was convinced to release my current development bits to the general public for public criticism. A PDF document accompanies the download. Make sure you read that first before installing, because installation is rough to say the least (developer friendly, but not end user compatible). But judge for yourself.

Now for the more interesting part: source code is included! This nice registry editor is open source, licensed under the GNU General Public License (GPL). I hope that it can serve for more than just a bad example of how not to do things on a Smartphone ;-). Count on me for documenting the pitfalls and stumbling blocks that I magically wasn't able to avoid.

So without further ado, here is the download. If you want to read up on the history of the project, simply dig into the Smartphone / PPC category of this blog.

TheServerSide.NET has a nice satire online: Top 10 Things to Be Thankful for in .NET (Flash link). My favorite is "6. Object Orientation in VB.NET - For showing VB6 Developers that what they were doing before wasn't OO. Not even close."

Apress has a section titled Alpha and Beta Books. There you can read "first drafts" (alpha) as well as "shipping real soon now" (beta) chapters of upcoming book releases. You will find a wide range of book topics on the aforementioned page. Currently interesting to us in the .NET camp are the chapters for the Test Driven Development (TDD) book.

In case this weekend turns out to be too long for you (and you get bored without a real .NET challenge), check out the CodeDOM MSIL Code Provider and the CodeDOM Subset Code Provider. The more interesting bits from the download description:

The Microsoft Intermediate Language (MSIL) code provider takes a CodeDom tree and generates MSIL syntax. MSIL code provider generates all the CodeDom elements that are part of the 1.1 conformance spec. MSIL code provider generates code for most of the CodeDom types that shipped in V1.1. Why emit C# when you can emit IL!

The CodeDom Subset Code provider consumes CodeDom trees in the way the C# code provider does, but whenever a node that does not fall into the subset is encountered, it emits a #error in the generated code. This will alert to the CodeDom tree builder of any place in their code where they don't meet subset conformance. Roll your own subset of the C# language - anyone interested?

I admit it: I'm too easily excited and tend to install about any kind of Beta that I get my hands on on my machines. That's how the WUS trial found its way on the domain controller, and aside from the disk space requirements that initially bit me, it is smooth sailing so far. Of course, I didn't put all machines "on the line":

Doing it via AD and a group policy also enables you to set the various options rather easily from one single central location:

What's that got to do with .NET development? Easy: I have tons of VPC images, and it is rather too easy (and dangerous) to forget to patch one of those. Now everything is taken care of automatically without wasting Internet bandwidth.

  • Worms, trojans and backdoors
  • Insecurities in wireless connectivity
  • Denial of Service attacks
  • Specific problems (ActiveSync, autorun SD/CF cards, buffer overflows)

Benjamin Armstrong (aka Virtual PC Guy) posted a computer migration strategy using Virtual PC. Now that is kinda cool to be able to migrate the entire old computer into a virtual machine.

Michael Howard did it again in his latest Writing Secure Code column: how you can run as an administrator and access Internet data safely by dropping unnecessary administrative privileges when using any tool to access the Internet (article on MSDN Security Developer Center). Started using the DropMyRights application immediately on my email applications (yes, I'm one of those devs who does run with administrative privileges by default). Really painless. And can save a headache or two.

Last week I did a three day course for Peter's Sql Server User Group Austria (SSUGA). The reason it is part of the Summer Academy is that it originally was scheduled for summer, but I got the slot which ended up colliding with about everybody's holiday plans - so we decided to reschedule, and last week it finally happened (right smack when the snowfalls started... so much for the title).

What did we cover? Well, obviously not everything of the advanced stuff I planned, however we did get the basics covered very well, so we could build on that for DAAB, CodeSmith and Olymars. For the German-speaking among my blog readers, a more detailed course outline follows (like I said earlier, we did cover almost everything):

"Dieser Kurs richtet sich an professionelle Entwickler die für das Design und die Entwicklung von Daten-zentrierten, verteilten Applikationen verantwortlich sind. Teilnehmer haben bereits Erfahrung mit Visual Studio .NET 2003, bevorzugt im Bereich der Webapplikationsentwicklung. Die Kursbeispiele werden in C# präsentiert, die verwendete Datenbank ist die MSDE.

In diesem Kurs werden disconnected (DataSet) als auch connected Szenarien des ADO.NET Datenbankzugriff-APIs behandelt. Ebenso kommt XML Integration nicht zu kurz, Data Binding, Transaktionen sowie architekturelle Themen.

Inhalte:

  • ADO.NET Grundlagen / Architektur
  • Connected Szenarien
  • Disconnected Szenarien
  • Data Binding in WebForms and WinForms
  • DataSet/XML Integration, Typisierte DataSets
  • Design von Data Tier Komponenten, durchreichen von Daten über Tiers
  • Arbeiten mit dem SQL Server Centric .NET Code Generator
  • Provider Model Design Pattern"
