How to detect and avoid memory and resources leaks in .NET application

Despite what a lot of people believe, it's easy to introduce memory and resources leaks in .NET applications. The Garbage Collector, or GC for close friends, is not a magician who would completely relieve you from taking care of your memory and resources consumption.

I'll explain in this article why memory leaks exist in .NET and how to avoid them. Don't worry, I won't focus here on the inner workings of the garbage collector and other advanced characteristics of memory and resources management in .NET.

Tamper-Resistant Apps: Cryptographic Hash Algorithms Let You Detect Malicious Code in ASP.NET


Cryptographic hash algorithms produce fixed-length sequences based on input of arbitrary length. A given input always produces the same output, called a hash code. Using these algorithms, you can compute and validate hash codes to ensure that code running on your machine has not been tampered with or otherwise changed. ASP.NET provides a software mechanism for validating hash code fingerprints for every page requested by a client. In this article, the author shows how to use hash codes with ASP.NET applications to detect tampering and prevent malicious code from running when tampering is detected.

Top .NET Performance Problems and how to avoid them

Every time I work with one of our .NET customers to help them with managing their application performance I come across the same problems as seen with other clients before: lots of ADO.NET queries, many hidden exceptions in core or 3rd party .NET libraries, slow 3rd party components, inefficient custom code

Practical Multithreading for Client Apps

Writing applications that use multiple threads is often considered an advanced programming task, prone to errors. In this month's column, I'll focus on a practical application of multithreading in Windows® Forms applications with some real benefits, while attempting to keep things simple. My goal is to present multithreading in an approachable way that addresses a very common need: writing applications with a user interface that remain responsive to the user.

iPhone and mobile apps


Hi Guys,


I would like to develop a mobile application such as the one you find in iPhones but I don't know from where to start!!? I'm not looking for something complicated, just an a static application of an eBook that users can read an flip the pages, I don't think that you can do such animation easily in ASP.net so does anyone knows what tool that I can use to develop such application?






Detect Browser Screen Size??


Hi Everyone,  I need to detect the size of the user's screen for mobile devices (especially the BlackBerry). I've read a lot of pages that seem to refer me to the Request.Browser object, but I'm finding that this object doesn't have the correct values. For example, I have a BlackBerry and when I use the Request.Browser to get the screen size, it tells me it is 640x480. Well, I know it's not that big since an image of 300px wide just barely fits. Also, when I run on my desktop browser, it also says my screen is 640x480. I can assure you, it is not 640x480! ha!

  How does anyone reliably get the browser's screen size?? Do I have to revert to some kind of JavaScript? If so, where can I read more about it? Will it be any more reliable? Someone must have an idea about this. Thanks in advance!!
