It's two weeks in Barcelona for me - and for IT Forum, I am really doing ask-the-experts for Visual Studio Team System!

Saturday, 11 November 2006 22:48:15 (W. Europe Standard Time, UTC+01:00)  #    Comments [0]

 

Being ATE (Ask the Experts) means that you cannot go each and every session you would like to. As a reminder for myself here is the list of sessions I made it to:

  • ARC305: Connected Systems Part 2: Logic
  • OFF303: VSTO 2005 SE
  • SQL402: Implementing the Service-Oriented Database Architecture with SQL Server
  • ARC304: Connected Systems Part 4: Data
  • ARC201: Patterns and Anti-Patterns for SOA
  • DEV314: Building Rule-Based Systems in WF
  • ARC302: Connected Systems Part 5: Identity and Access Management
  • DEV322: Unit Testing Best Practices
  • DEV360: Windows PowerShell
  • DEV302: Microsoft XNA and the Future of Game Development
  • DEV366: Boost Your Data-Driven Application Development using SQL Server Centric .NET Code Generator (Olymars)

The only session to be rated "eminently forgettable" was DEV322. Well, at least I got to read my emails... The top-rated session definitely was Bob Beauchemin's SQL402, which kind of was an interesting session to go to before ARC304. Great fun was Rob Miles' XNA talk (this session doesn't fit the pattern of my interest, does it?).

There are a couple of sessions I missed, but I'll watch those once the post-conference DVDs have landed.

The Windows Vista Security Guide provides recommendations and tools to further harden Windows Vista. Well, go get it.

From the nuggets page: Don't have the time to read a 10-page how-to article or watch a full length webcast? Try an MSDN Nugget, a webcast that takes you step-by-step to discovering new functionality or exploring a hot developer topic, all in 10-15 minutes. If you haven't seen this yet, check it out!

I will be in Barcelona next week for Tech·Ed: Developers. You can get in touch with me at the Team System booth (Tuesday afternoon & Friday morning) of the Ask the Experts pavilion.

Update Actually, I am assigned to the ASP.NET booth as it turns out.

Read the post from Miguel Microsoft and Novell Collaborate. Good news for Mono, OpenOffice and Samba.

Today, we shipped Beta 2 of SharpDevelop 2.1 (release information). Usually, we only ship two betas (followed by release candidates), but last weekend we decided to add a third one to this release cycle - to build a rock-solid foundation for the releases coming after version 2.1.

Speaking of last weekend: three of us met for the annual #develop developer days (#d^3 2006, a four day event) - way short of the original invitation list. But this turned out to be an advantage for discussing architecture and componentization. A lot of improvements already made it into Beta 2, a few more are yet to come in Beta 3.

Part of this effort was the creation of a presentation on SharpDevelop, which includes an area of interest to all .NET developers out there: a list of our components that can be reused outside the context of SharpDevelop plus the documentation and samples for those components. Remember: SharpDevelop is LGPL, so feel free to use our components!

In addition to this "general" slide deck, Daniel (SharpDevelop technical lead) also created a "Level 600" introduction to NRefactory, which can be found here. Definitely interesting for those of you that want to use code completion in our text editor control.

Finally, SharpReport now is a project in its own respect. The reason(s)? Well, SharpDevelop and SharpReport are developed on different schedules, so now we are customers of each other and no longer intertwined. Cool stuff coming on this front: export to various formats, allowing you to use SharpReport - yes - for generating reports in ASP.NET sites!

The November 2006 issue has lots of good security articles, which are available online too. Check out Security Habits, Threat Modeling (STRIDE approach), Extending SDL or SQL Security to name a few.

Last Tuesday, I held the talk "Advanced Code Access Security" at UG Styria in Graz. This talk was originally part of the MSDN Security Briefings held in Austria earlier this year, for which MS Austria had asked MVPs to help create and deliver security content. Advanced CAS seemed an interesting enough developer topic to re-run at user groups, and Mario (the author of this session) has allowed me to publish the slide deck and demos for the general public.

AdvancedCodeAccessSecurity.pdf (4542 KB)

AdvancedCAS.zip (599.6 KB)

Please note that I have published only demos four (setting CAS via setup) and six (using CAS in addin application) - those are the "completed" versions of the demos.

Today, I was asked whether there was a "real" difference between debug and release builds of a C# project - other than the PDB files. I didn't know for sure, so I set out on a search for more information, which turned up the blog entry debug vs. release in C#. The interesting part is the first comment by Josh Williams: "...the /debug[+|-] switch controls JIT optimizations <snip />. Disabling JIT optimizations is very useful for debugging purposes but will very much affect the runtime perf of an app as much of the optmization of your code is done by the JIT, not CSC..."

Now that definitely turns shipping a debug build to customers into a non-starter.
