As you, probably, notice, I returned to the consulting field. So I started to publish here again. Today, we’ll speak about some quick extension methods which help me to work with Windows Phone.

In order to ignite my comeback to the community I decided to start from Windows Phone development. First of all, I downloaded WPSDK 8 and start it installation on my good old Windows 7 x84 machine.

Recently I had to go over some code in one of systems. There I’ve found real gems of production code snippets, worth to share with developers community. Note, that most of this code is not “dead code” and perfectly working. READER ADVISORY: Following post contains objectionable code snippets and might not suitable for all individuals. [...]

More than half year ago, I wrote an article about importing RSA private key in PEM format into C# RSACryptoProvider. This code was used by me for a long time until two days ago I got private key which I was unable to import due to “Bad Data” CryptographicException. And here the story begins… First [...]

Frankly, I thought that one of basic things in windows development, such as “debagability” and “installability” of services,  were changed for the last 10 years in development environments. However I was disappointed to discover, that nothing actually changed. You still cannot build easy to debug (in command line) service, which is also can be installed [...]

At 1996-1997, together with Internet Explorer 3.0, Microsoft released API to work with media content (for example movies). They used to call it Quartz. This was very convenience set of interfaces and thus was widely used by industry. Now we call it DirectShow. Years passed, but DirectShow remains the same. It worked and worked very [...]

Yesterday Visual Studio 2010 was released. This is very exiting, however from the moment I played with very first preview versions I had concerns regarding the performance of it code editor.

One of the most common problems in WPF is memory/processor time consumption. Yes, WPF is rather greedy framework. It become even greedier when using unmanaged resources, such as memory files or interop images. To take care on it, you can implement singleton pattern for the application and share only one unmanaged instance among different application [...]

As for me, there are only two kinds of projects – hobbyist’s nifty tools and systems (scale may wary). The main difference between those is the easiness of making changes and refactoring.
