My Diary scribblings on MS Event – Nov 2005

My recent MS events Diary scribbles–
I. Performant application in .NET by G.Khanna

(1) String Builder
  Avoid ‘+’ for concatenating string and always use StringBuilder for appending string.
   StringBuilder sb=new StringBuilder();
   sb.Append("This is must");
   sb.Append("for performance");
   string sql=sb.ToString();
(2) Finalizers
  public void Dispose()
 use finalize() with dispose
(3) Generics
   Simply datatype changing ( no algorthimic change )
(4) weak reference
 Presentation and demo is available @
— performance explorer, clrprofiler
— Gen0,Gen1,Gen2,LargeObjectHeap – Garbage collector
II. Debuggin in VS2005
 (1).Debug – set debug breakpoint, filters etc
 (2).Tracing – inserting tracepoints like trace breakpoints – System.Diagnostic.tracelogs
 (3).Datatips – dataset visualizer
  For Team comm,Quality,Desg for operation,platform for innovation
 *VSTS – connected with VS Team Foundation server
  {somewat like MPP – Microsoft project professional }
III. Windows Foundation Framework (Indigo)

Distributed Technology
 1.System Messaging – message oriented process
 2..NET REmoting – extensibility,location, transparency
 3. ASMX -webservice (share scheme), stateless- Interop with other platforms
 4. Enterprise service – Attribute based programming
 5. WSE – protocol support

SOA (thought process) OOA (Technical process):
 Services are – Operational boundary
       autorouting itself
            single entry
            redirected to cost effective
 SOA Architecture :
 * Simplex, Duplex, Request / reply
 WCF – Building and managing, Unified programming model,broadly interopera..
[ lot of new jargons noted in my diary – remoting,Indigo,System Messaging, WSDL -proxy, Webservices, Ent-services, named
pipes ]
[Abbr : SOA, WSE, WCF, UDDI, WS – Discoverer ..{ classid,prog id, GUID }
WinFX Runtime Components –
Visual Studio Extensions for WinFX –
XQuery- Bdot session srinivas sampath 
 Querying XML datatype or XML colum from DB *SQL 2005
 * Structure of XQuery : Prolog, Body
 * SQL Type methods
     – Query
     – Value
     – Exist
     – Nodes
     – modify 
 Example : Declare @X XML
           set @X='<books><book></book></books>’
  select @x.query(‘</book>’)
src 😦
blog :
(1) WinFX -A managed-code programming model
(2) Windows Presentation Foundation – unified presentation subsystem (AVALON)
(3) Windows Communication Foundation – next-generation Web services technology (Indigo)
All this for my reference…

Ethical guide to hacking mobile phones – Ankit Fadia

Today I got some leisure time for surfing,so While I was surfin about latest security breaking/hacking/cracking news..i come to know that Ankit Fadia(young hacker from India) launched his 3’rd book on mobile Hacking 🙂
"Ankit – Famed Indian ethical hacker, released his newest publication(Sep 2005) – Title : An ethical guide to hacking mobile phones. More details here :
Hmm,Nothing special to say here..but I’m just remembering my college days, met him thrice and had a little talk about Et-Hacking and wanted myself to be a GREAT SECURITY ADVISOR FOR BIG COMPANY. Yes, Still I’m remember his first visit to Coimbatore GRD about Hacking & another day in Rotoray club of CBE, Few months later in Salem -Sona Engineering College in 2002 & 2003.
Ankit :
But  when compared compared to Ankit, my all time hero is "Kevin Mitnick"( I read both these people books for any meaning between the lines 🙂 , but some RFC and hack jargons,nothing spcl abt it.
Happy Coding!!

~Well about my project days in 2003 ~~
I’m just recalling my College project days and search in Bangalore city. I know the pain of project hunting. Nowadays No one is ready to give oppurtunity for Real time project in Software Companies. becoz of my untired effort and gods grace, I got project in as VC++ trainee(2003 Nov-2004 May) and completed successfully. It was such a wonderfull place to work my project, provided with free lunch, system, guidance, library support etc. In all my life, i never forget that experience and genesis infrastructure.
Thanks to Ms Sakuntala for guiding/helping/oppurtunity to do that project.
Besides my project, I learned lot many things in IT and as well as in BLR as Project Trainee.
