Welcome to my corner of the web, where I keep notes on the business of developing software based solutions that collect data and turn it into intuitively actionable information.

IT Sections

The IT section covers the whole process of Application Development, among other topics.

The Glossary is an organised entry point to notes on industry technologies, protocols and products, and business terms one hears.


To take your time going over a presentation I have given, view it again on the Presentations page.


Or simply read the Blogs during my Pomodoro breaks between trying to find solutions to problems under lack of time, budget and your average IT duress.

Dry .NET Blog

A blog about the latest code fragment that titillate me…

And that's the other thing: as a human-readable file format, JSON is better than XML, but it's worse than almost everything else. It doesn't even allow comments! It's an accidental format, absent-mindedly unleashed upon the world by a JavaScript developer who worked out a way to turn objects into strings that could be turned back into object using the built-in eval function. And then it turned out you shouldn't do that anyway, because security. The only reason it's become so popular as a configuration format is Node.js, which speaks JSON natively.

Why we cache everything

Just a quick reminder that you should cache everything you possibly can.

If you're wondering how much it can help, the following is very informal comparison (YMMV).

  • 1343 Requests/sec to EF
  • 276672 Requests/sec to InMem cache (ie 206x faster).
    • Note:For data that has to be shared across servers, consider IT:AppFabric, which is generally between the two (nearer to the SQL Server side of things from my experience).
