[Audio Interview] Brian Noyes: Deep .NET Q&A

Brian Noyes -Getting Technical about .NET (April 25, 2005)

What would you do if you had an experienced architect and consultant sitting right next to you? You'd start asking him all kinds of questions that have been bothering you, of course. Which is exactly what I did, which turned into a wonderful almost 2 and a half hour conversation about lots and lots of things in the .NET world. Starting with .NET 2.0 - the new table adapters, datasets and performance, enterprise library, Indigo, and continuing with architecture best practices, MSMQ, Service oriented architecture and lots more.

Here's a short list of topics covered: His new book, .NET Data Binding (top 3 coolest new features), Datasets and scalability, EntLib, the Provider Model, extensibility and security, System.Transactions, Queued Components, the least known best feature in COM+, Moving to Indigo challenges, Queued events, Web services and their generated proxies related problems, attending MS design reviews, ObjectSpaces, XQuery, Connection pooling and much more. Indeed - this should make your daily commute a little more interesting (and geeky!)

Language - English.
