Once in a while I like to get back to “old stuff”. It allows me to look once again at the things I’ve already done but then from another perspective: between now and then I’ve done a few projects, I’ve read a couple articles/books and spoken to some people. So it’s not surprising that quite often I find some new insights about the subjects I thought were closed. One of such topics was using the PageAsyncTask class to improve the performance of your website.
SharePoint Dispose Checker Tool aka SPDisposeCheck is finally available! You can download it from MSDN Code Gallery @ .
.NET 3x ships with a number of new features among which lambda expressions: an easy way to write code for querying collections. Because of its ease of use many developers use it for retrieving data from different kind of collections.
