TechEd Developers 2007 is over, and before moving on (and flying back to snow in Austria), here is the list of sessions I attended this year:

  • TLA201 - A Tour of Visual Studio 2008 and the .NET Framework 3.5
  • OFF401 - .NET Developers Advanced Introduction to SharePoint 2007
  • TLA324 - What's New in Team System for Software Testers
  • SEC301 - CLR Security in .NET Framework 3.5
  • DAT201 - Entity Framework Introduction
  • WEB401 - Building Highly Scalable ASP.NET Web Sites by Exploiting Async Programming Models
  • TLA304 - Building Services with the Service Factory: Modeling Edition
  • DAT303 - Entity Framework: Application Patterns
  • TLA305 - Continuous Integration With and Without Team System
  • TLA307 - Improving Code Performance with VSTS 2008 Team Edition for Software Developers
  • DAT304 - Managing Unstructured Data in SQL Server 2008: Introducing the FileStream Datatype
  • TLA403 - Loose Coupling in Practice: CAB in the Real World
  • ARC401 - Designing High Performance, Persistent Domain Models
  • TLA407 - Dealing with Concurrency and Multi-Core CPUs with Today's Development Technologies
  • SBP307 - Modeling and Composition of Applications
  • TLA319 - The Joins Concurrency Library
  • TLA405 - Parallel and Async Functional Programming on .NET with F#
  • WEB403 - Securing your High-Risk ASP.NET Web Applications - A Case Study

Compared to last year, I managed to attend more sessions, however, there were also more duds. The last session (WEB403) turned out to be the one that earned the raspberry this year (a close runner-up: TLA403). Coming out on top I decided to nominate three: OFF401, TLA307 and DAT303.

XSSDetect is a static code analysis tool that helps identify Cross-Site Scripting security flaws found within Web applications. It is able to scan compiled managed assemblies (C#, Visual Basic .NET, J#) and analyze dataflow paths from sources of user-controlled input to vulnerable outputs. It also detects whether proper encoding or filtering has been applied to the data and will ignore such "sanitized" paths. Download

If you are interested in IronPython, you should check out Matt's latest SharpDevelop addin: IronPython Integration In SharpDevelop 2.2. His blog post details the status of code completion, Windows Forms designer support, plus: converting code from C# or VB.NET to IronPython.

Please note that this is a work in progress, and that the official release of this addin will be for SharpDevelop 3 and IronPython 2.0.

Been on holidays, at conferences (eg last week Ask The Experts @ XTOPIA in Berlin), and worked on various projects - a couple of reasons it was rather quiet lately in this blog.

Yesterday I decided I needed a simple guestbook application for a to-be-developed private Web site, and because I didn't find anything that fit my needs I decided to write one myself with the goal of (ab)using XLinq in the course of this endeavour:

Guestbook_XLINQ.zip (7.09 KB)

Caveat emptor: I am no designer (surprise!). But thanks to no design it should be easy for you to add your own design. However, as this month's MSDN magazine is all about security, I decided to make the application production-ready security-wise. You'll find a lot of parsing plus XSRF protection (note: this version does not check for integer overflow in calculating the start row).

Missing features: this guestbook is not prepared for localization, nor does it use a control-based approach (where you drop those in your pages and get an in-place guestbook).

Update a version of this application for VS2008 RTM is available here.

Been following tf4mono development for quite a while, and now there is an installer that works on Windows with .NET 2.0 (more info). Be sure to check out the comments as it doesn't seem to work on a machine with Team Explorer already installed.

I ran into a snag last night - I imported a db schema (created via Visio / Generate) into a DB Pro project in VS 2008 Beta 2 DB Pro edition. Then I tried to build & deploy into SQL Express (the one that comes in the TFS / VSTS preconfigured VPC). And it balked.

The error message on TSD158 I got wasn't like the one described in the MSDN Forums post Extending Timeout on SqlBuildTask, however, I decided to look into the registry anyways. Interestingly enough, the value for the key LongRunningQueryTimeoutSeconds was zero. Increased that to 120, restarted VS, presto: build is now working!

In my previous post FastCGI in IIS7 I mentioned that I am running WebSVN on this box to give FastCGI a real-world test run. Today, I upgraded to v2.0 of WebSVN. They sure do ship a good-looking template this time around:

The RSS functionality is enabled too in this version (I was running code directly from their repository last time around...). I have to say that WebSVN turned into a must-have tool for anyone using Subversion.

Link to WebSVN on iis7.chrison.net (feel free to play around)

Version 2 of the IE7 Desktop Security Guide is available for download. If you are interested in locking down IE7, then you will need this document.
