Good Reads(from the Recommended Books page)
BlogsAs part of my endeavor to continue improving my knowledge and experience, I follow a number of blogs and read articles posted on those blogs and on twitter. Each morning I set aside time to read 3-5 articles covering a variety of topics that interest me. Many of these names show up in my Delicious bookmarks as well. As part of my ongoing improvement process I have also started writing semi-regularly for the blogs on LessThanDot.com.
My ArticlesThese are the last three articles I published at LessThanDot.
- Automated Database Deployments – Presentation Demos
- Client-side vs Server-side Validation in Web Applications
- Threadsafe Incrementing in C#
