  • Build a sandcastle today - download the CTP

    Sometimes codenames are just funny. Sandcastle seems to be one of these. So what's in a name? You know both C# (since version 1.0) and VB.NET (since version 8.0 == 2005) support XML comments to document (the public parts of) your code. That's a great thing, but what you end up with is a just a big chunk...

    Introduction The last couple of days I've been playing around with some stuff around WCF (formerly known as Indigo for the people who've been living on Mars lately). Instead of hosting stuff in IIS I decided (for no specific reason whatsoever) to take up the hosting stuff foreseen by WCF and to host...

  • MD5 and SHA1 File Checksum Calculcator

    So here's a new tool for my personal toolbox: a simple MD5 checksum calculator for files, written in .NET 2.0.

  • Some hot releases

    Rather calm on my blog lately due to a high workload. So, let's give a little overview of some recent hot releases that are worth to check out in case of some spare free time. This summer, I'll try to put some more serious posts on the web over here. Here we go: First of all, there's of course Windows...

  • Custom MSBuild tasks

    Introduction I guess most of my blog readers are familiar with the new build system in .NET 2.0 and Visual Studio 2005. In the past, project files were only consumable by Visual Studio .NET.

  • The difference between readonly variables and constants

    Just saw a little piece of code where one has been messing up those two concepts of readonly variables and constants. So, what's the difference? Let's take a look.

  • CLR exception handling from A to Z - Everything you didn't want to know about try-catch-finally-fault-filter

    What is it? The principle of exceptions is a pretty easy-to-understand way to report exceptional situations to the consumer of a piece of code. Instead of using (artificial) HRESULT return values like this was the case in the (COM) past, exception handling is an object-oriented way to cope with exceptional...

    Introduction Within a couple of weeks, our series of MSDN Security Evenings will go on air at various locations (see for more information). It's pretty clear developers care about security (maybe just not enough yet) and so I received...
