Differed Execution (vs) Immediate execution in LINQ

Recently while understanding LINQ, many things unfurled from MSDN. The main theme of .NET is lazy binding (or) lazy loading. And it is evolving in all the ways within the .net Framework. I recollect in one of my previous posts about the mainly concentrated theme for every version that is released. I could be wrong from the insider perspective, but what I’ve observed is what I’ve written. Anyhow, coming back to the main purpose of this post, which is all about the lazy loading and the point behind various execution mechanisms that are available within LINQ. Before I proceed further, … Continue reading Differed Execution (vs) Immediate execution in LINQ

Sending SMS from .NET Application

Today, when visiting the MSDN forums, came across of a request about the subject of this post. While replying, thought of writing a post with visual aids. So that it would be more meaningful. But unfortunate that MSDN forum doesn’t support to upload the Images. Hence is the blog post. Before we talk about .NET application, it is required to understand how SMS works and the integration with some application. Thus, let’s see what happens when some one sends SMS. Am not going to talk about SMS sent to any phone with 10 digits unique number, but am talking about … Continue reading Sending SMS from .NET Application

Bill Gates started a website

Microsoft’s co-founder, Bill Gates started a new website about his leanings and thoughts that are cooking in his mind. It is really good to know such transparent information from a person like him.

From this thought is raised a new concept of sharing via web. Did you see this web, the Gates Notes. It has various sections like, Thinking, Learning, Travel, blah.. blah ..

Go – an Old wine from Google

Google is coming out with a new programming language with title as “GO” and the tag line for this programming language is, “a systems programming language…” In my first impression all that got to my mind is that, most of the concepts are taken from programming languages like C and other few more features like GC from current world’s programming languages. The 1Hr talk by Rob is posted on YouTube. Interesting.. After going thru the entire presentation, all it struck to my mind is the title of this post. What about you?

What’s new in .NET

Currently, we see version 4 of .NET Framework is the hot topic. It all started with v1.0 during 2003 and have seen various version changes, such as v1.1, v2.0, v3.0 and v3.5. But what’s new in every version? You might start comparing each version directly with its predecessor. Did we ever thought interms of the need of the new version? (or) What makes new version much a mandatory for the application to start using them? Jerry D. Miller, a .Net Developer from Austin, Tx, has a different perspective about the new version of .NET. He says that the new thing … Continue reading What’s new in .NET
