dotNetDave Rocks The GLUGnet User Group

The dotNetDave For Those About To Code: Worldwide Tour will be at the GLUGnet User Group in Okemos, MI on August 19th at 6 PM EDT. I hope you will join me at this meeting. This meeting will be virtual, but I wish it was in person. My session will be followed by a Q&A where you can ask me anything!

dotNetDave Says... Memory Affects Performance and Performance Effects Memory!

dotNetDave Says… Memory Affects Performance and Performance Effects Memory!

When architecting and wring code, performance and memory usage should always be something that needs to be addressed. Especially since so much is being moved to the cloud. Performance and memory usage done improperly can dramatically increase the cost of cloud services. If performance is slow, YOU WILL LOOSE CUSTOMERS!

New Code Rules: Listen to Your Users!

On show #32 of Rockin' the Code World with dotNetDave, I am discussing why some companies do not focus on what they offer in a new version of their software the truly addresses the users needs and issues. I've seen this at companies I work and and for much of the software I use, on a daily basis.

Not “Super” Code with Over 7,000 Violations

I have been analyzing code for issues for a very long time. In this article, I will share what I found at a recent contract I was working on. I have analyzed some bad solutions in my career, and this is hands down one of the worse I have done in recent memory. I will show you just some of the over 7K violations. The biggest issue with this solution, which is in production, is the very poor architecture it has. Honestly, I do not know if there was any architecture for these 7 projects.

Analyzing Code for Issues: .NET Memory Profiler

I have stated many, many times, “Performance affects memory and memory affects performance”. None of the code analysis tools I've written about will find every issue when it comes to memory and performance issue. The only way to find the rest is by using a memory profiler tool on running code near to production machine setup as possible.
