Generator for ASP.NET 2.0 Membership

January 26th, 2007 by Martin

If you played a bit with ASP.NET Membership and configure it for using encrypted password storage (enablePasswordRetrieval=”true” in web.config), you must add new section to your configuration, to specify cryptographic algorithm and keys. If you want to generate your own it could be a little bit tricky, but there is a great tool that generates configuration section based on your needs…


Scott Guthrie announced the final release of ASP.NET AJAX 1.0 (aka “Atlas”)

January 24th, 2007 by Martin

It includes AJAX extension itself including AJAX Control Toolkit and source code release. I have to say that I took a break for a couple of weeks in ASP.NET AJAX area, but now I am working on my personal project – AJAX enabled e-shop for photos and pictures. I think it will be a good test for this final release :). I am really excited to see what I can do with it :).

Free Patterns and Practices Guidance Explorer for ASP.NET and .NET

July 30th, 2006 by Martin

JD Meier from the Prescriptive Architecture Guidance Group (aka PAG) at Microsoft stopped by my office this morning to show me the new Guidance Explorer tool he has been working on.  This is a cool WinForms client application that aggregates PAG guidance and suggestions, and allows you to search and sort across it.  This makes it ideal for quickly reviewing checklists of suggestions for ASP.NET projects.  Each guidance rule covers why it should be followed, and includes instructions on how to implement it.

A nice feature the tool provides is the ability to create and save "custom views" of just the guidance you care about.  For example, in the screen-shot below I created a new custom view called "Scott Team" and then dragged/dropped a subset of the guidelines/suggestions I cared about into it:

 You can learn more about the tool and download it for free here (the download location is in the bottom right of the page).  There is also a Wiki on Channel9 with more information here, and JD has a great blog to subscribe to here. The plan is to continually update the tool with additional guidance rules and checklists over the next few months (they've been doing 3-4 updates a month lately).  I definitely recommend checking it out.
