wrong but after 8 year in web development, 4 asp classic year, 2 year
transition to .Net world and last year doing heavy development on asp.net 2.0 I
think that I may have a good opinion on the best resources online for the
thinking sometime ago about give the credit to the great work of
Mads Kristensen and his .NET SLAVE blog,
to me, the best blog around the blogsphere when talking about ASP.NET
development. But I’ve been kinda lazy and never did so, today I read a blog
post from HIM asking about some stuff , you should read here.
playing around with all free resources online to see coding techniques and
styles (forums, tutorial, blogs, Starter “piece of s***” kits, I easily can say
that Mads’ blog is the best asp.net blog around, why? Because if you see around
and read a lot of asp.net blogs an related technologies, forums, you can find
good code but NEVER believe me NEVER the complete solution, or not a quality solution,
and to make it even better Mads “KISS” approach just make his blog articles perfect.
I understand that people shouldn’t give away everything they know, that
everybody’s problem to decide to share or not.
concise, ready for deployment in must cases,
an the best of all, HE SHARES real solutions for real problems on real
scenarios, his code snippets are piece of gold when you have the enough
criteria to judge. I don’t want to sounds like a biased person, I don’t
know Mads personally but I bet you he is a great person why? Because persons
who SHARE KNOWLEDGE, - not just simple knowledge –I’m talking about real
knowledge, is great people. I invite you to read his blog everyday and if you
can donate when find something useful I encourage you to do so ( I should do
that to J) Read all the post
Mads wrote, I guarantee you that would be amazed to read all that valuable
asp.net an C# stuff.
I will make
a resource or blogs list that I read everyday that keeps me on track on latest
news, trends etc, related to an asp.net developer but now I just feel necessary
to give Mad something small back compare to his great knowledge.
As I said
Mads code snippets and opinion rocks, and here is my favorite ones.
Search Engine Positioner, I saw this yesterday
and now is used in our marketing department, very valuable tool for SEO
(search engine optimization) , Mads If you read this, this is my "wish a song", Proxy settings, to use 3rd party proxies, this
is very useful when doing SEO out of the US because Search engines give results
depending on your IP country so if you do search engine marketing for another country
rather that yours ( in my case Costa Rica) that would be very valuable).
And many more, if you put together all the code Mads
provides you can build a great software library to a small general purpose web
Thanks for all, Mads keep sharing, keep rocking!

If you had a holiday rush as some of us did maybe you missed some news about Visual Studio Service pack 1 being release. Scott Guthrie
(asp.net, iss, product manager at Microsoft) release today on his blog some really valuable information about this. He points to really good links like
But also more useful information, check it out the whole post: A few VS 2005 SP1 Links and Information Nuggets
Just want to say happy new year and succes to all the people at ArtinSoft and especially to our blogs readers, this year we have a lot of new things coming, just no migration stuff, but new tools and products that hopefully everybody will love, especially people in the web development world. At this point can't tell more about it...
In the other hand I'll be sharing more knowledge and tips about Asp.net and migrations from ASP to ASP.NET and of course .NET related information.
Stay Tune !
If you are starting to develop Asp.net
application with Visual Studio 2005 and learning about the thousands
of new cool features of asp.net 2.0 you will find that the
compilation model is really different.
To me was very
confusing in the beginning understand the new compilation model or
features. Playing around -before reading documentaion first- I find that there some command line tools that
you can use to understand the different ways to do it, however it's
difficult to understand if you don't read the new compilation model
I want to share about a tool I used since I
found it, it's called West
Wind Web ASP.NET 2.0 Compiler Utility, it's very
simple to use and in my case, it helps me to understand better the
compilation options I have with the asp.net 2.0 model.
it a try and I hope you like it.
Checking ScottGu's Blog the other day, he pointed to some useful links, I specially like the UrlRewriting library, I'm considering using it so wait for updates for my experience with it. I recommend to check that library it looks really good.
