  • Developer Smackdown show

    I was recently on the Developer Smackdown podcast with Clark Sell, Mark Nichols, and Glenn Block. We spent an hour talking REST and WCF over at MIX. The show came out really good! Thanks for having me on again, Clark! Check out show #47: http://developersmackdown...

  • Clean paths with WCF Hosted Workflows

    I am a big fan of the things added to WCF 4.0. One of those things is the deep integration with ASP.NET routes. Today, I was writing a service in WF and hosting the workflow with WCF. I really didn’t like the service URL—yeah, I’m a picky developer who...
  • How JSONP works (and some bits about implementing it in WCF)

    In the world of the web, we have lots of security concerns. One of the concerns lies with cross site scripting, XSS. From a high level, XSS is any occasion where data is sent from code on a page from one site to another site. The code is usually via JavaScript...
  • Talking about REST

    Mark and Clark over at just published ‘my’ show: . We spent time talking about REST and SOAP as well as a number of other topics related to REST. One of the things...
  • Project Phoenix

    The current economic condition is hitting everyone pretty hard, even developers. For developers, part of the challenge in finding that next job is having the right, up to date skills. To help folks get those skills, Arnie Rowland and a number of other...
  • Azure Storage is a RESTful service

    Today I had to build a demo for Azure and I noticed that I was following a tired old path where one demonstrates Azure storage services (Table/Queue/Blob) via a hosted application. My demo has two key points: 1. Look, there’s a picture that I uploaded...

  • Reading a WebResponse into a byte[]

    This question came up on Twitter. I’m posting the solution here for posterity. How do you read a non-seekable Stream into a byte[]? Specifically, a HttpWebResponse? Like this: class Program { static void Main( string [] args) { var request = WebRequest...
  • XmlDictionary and Binary Serialization

    One of the interesting things that came out of WCF is the improvements in Infoset serialization. In particular, WCF introduced a format for binary serialization which reduces space concerns for objects. One of the keys to saving space is the notion of...
  • Speaking at Chicago Architects Group May 18

    I’ll be speaking at the Chicago Architects Group on May 18 over at the ITA (next to Union Station in Chicago- corner of Adams and Wacker). My topic is Azure for Architects. In this talk, I go over how to look at and use Azure from a software architecture...
  • Custom ChannelFactory Creation

    Just the other day, Derik Whitaker ran into some issues setting up his ChannelFactory to handle large object graphs being returned to his clients (post is here ). After some back and forth through email, we came up with a solution. Instead of use the...
  • Move to WCF 4.0 for Less Configuration/Code

    People have lots of complaints around WCF. For the 3.x codebase, many don’t like the amount of configuration one has to write or code in order to get a service up and running. For example, let’s assume that we have a simple service contract...
  • More with Discovery, Day 4

    Previously, we looked at configuring discovery on the server. What about the client? To discover from the client, we use a class named DiscoveryClient. DiscoveryClient implements the WS-Discovery protocol. Discovery is typically done over UDP because...
  • More with Discovery, Day 3

    By now, you might be wondering where a person would actually use discovery. A common case would be allowing two processes on the same machine to find each other and allow for dynamic naming of all endpoints (such as using GUIDs in the URLs). This could...
