Coming up next


Hello everyone,

Well, I’m back from holidays and about to get my teeth stuck into some more interesting technology.  For the next week, I’ve decided to focus on a concept involving the serving of static (cachable) content – typically straight HTML – combined with AJAX and Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) services using a RESFTful approach.  So far everything has gone according to plan.

WCF has some exciting built-in support for directing REST requests to web service methods and handling formatting both in and outbound.  Combined with some AJAX based user interface, I’m hoping to be able to facilitate a very, very well performing and scalable solution using minimal resources.  As I said earlier.. time will tell.

I’ll also be toying with a few different approaches to data access, I’ll keep the details mum for now until I’ve had a chance to evaluate the performance impact of the designs I’m considering.  So stay tuned.. I know it has been quite a while since the last decent technical entry.. but something decent will be along soon enough!

While I’m putting this together.. I’m still on the hunt for a new opportunity, so if you (or someone you trust) is in the market for decent IT talent, please get in touch.  My operators are standing by.
