  • Real World Dojo part One: Form Validation

    Real World Dojo, part One (Basic Validation) The Scenario: I’ve kind of been nibbling around the edges of Dojo for a while, but I’m at a place in this project where I really need to buckle down and learn it. Since I’m having so much trouble finding real-life examples of the basics, I figured I’d share...

  • VB.NET vs C#

    If you're familiar with a wide variety of programming languages/environments, C# and vb.net look like pretty much the same language. C# looks a little lower level, a little grittier, because it uses brackets instead of begin/end (or whatever vb.net uses). It does tend to get new language features...

  • Linq to SQL Designer Weirdness

    The Linq to SQL designer that's built into Visual Studio 2008 is pretty, and a huge improvement over what Microsoft's provided before, in terms of data modelling. I haven't used enough other OR/M's to really have an opinion about how it measures up to other products. But it does have...

  • Linq to SQL with multiple databases

    I think I've mentioned that I'm working on a project that dips its fingers into databases all over the place.

  • First Impressions of Web2py

    It kicks ass. There's a video that demonstrates web2py and Google appengine that pretty much says it all. If you're like me, and you'd rather read a set of step-by-step instructions than watch a video, this is for you. (OK, this is actually for me when I start a new project 6 months down...

  • Linq to SQL and linked tables

    There are several articles about how to do this, but none of them seem to reflect the kind of situations we encounter in the real world. They all seem to revolve around the same tables in the Adventure Works database, and they give you glimpses of "What" rather than "How." Oh, and...

  • Empty try/catch blocks

    I've seen several people do this, and it's always been a big clue to me that they're very new and inexperienced with .net. There are a few variations. try { blah; } catch {} That's probably the absolute worst. Your exception disappears completely, and no one ever knows it happened. I'm...
