I started out reading blogs in early 2004 while in Iraq. In March, I started
a blog at blogspot (and with a
little ‘customization’ of the stylesheet, I got it to redirect to my blog at
.Net junkies). On April 16th, I transfered my initial posts to .Net junkies.
One of the drawbacks of blogs is that old posts get buried even though the
information may continue to be relavent. Here, I’ll review some topics:
collected my Noah Coad at the 2004 MVP summit (while I was still overseas).
solution to having a collection of key-value pairs while maintaining the
broad post written in an Iraq sandstorm.
to why ASP.NET with vb might stop working.
to use inheritance with ASP.NET pages.
is no performance difference between ASP.NET code-behind and code in a script
5 & 6 client-side databinding.
learning experience about the goto statement. (Now I try to refactor away
from goto – and even IF statements).
reflection to load and call a class.
grids to custom objects.
compatibility bug in ASP.NET 2.0.
to easily consume all RAM on a server with bad .Net code.
I’ve tracked down memory leaks.
1.1 code that throws 2.0 in an infinite loop.
really easy custom configuration section.
master pages changes the behavior of FindControl.
a totals row at the bottom of a DataGrid.
a base Page class that controls event handling of sub-classes
ASP.NET pages configurable.
ASP.NET custom validator.
out an ASP.NET server control.
the PreInit event in ASP.NET v1.1
your dynamic controls might lose viewstate.
page content before it’s rendered.
Xml schema validation example.
information using the Trace Listeners.
data about string concatenation (when not to use Stringbuilder)
against using public constants.
version of a master pages control set (based on Paul Wilson’s sample)
serialization as configuration.
code is its own AppDomain.
given to community contributors.
TDD example with Enterprise Library DAAB.
data repository with a true business object.
flexible application architecture.
I’m not sure how many regular readers I have (that isn’t my goal), but I
figured that on average, my blog website gets 430 hits per day. Google is
responsible for most of them by matching up searches with content on my blog.
Then another 500 RSS hits for most blog posts.
Looking back on my blog, it really is a journal of my coding experiences, and
I can see how far I’ve progressed.
