When we work on a new project, should I say “unknown territory?” We start thinking of many things, do we know the technology? Are the requirements clear? Is it going to change? Are we capable of doing?, Is it untested technology for which we have to do some POC? Do we have resources? Do we have adequate experience about the hardware, is software available? In Software Engineering words it’s a RISK.

Database Tuning has always been the DBA’s task. But with the SQL Server 2005 Database Engine Tuning Advisor, any one can work towards increasing the database performance and tuning it. SQL Server 2005 – Database Engine Tuning Advisor replaces the SQL Server 2000 – Index Tuning Wizard, which was definitely not bad, but the new version comes with many new features and improvements.

One thing which was missing from Microsoft line of product was ANTIVIRUS. They have all the software utilities with the Operating System, be is notepad, paint, media player, image viewer etc. Now with the Microsoft Security Essentials the line is longer and better. This new member in Microsoft’s family is not new, there was Microsoft Live One Care, which was a disaster and was not free.

I am always wondering why Microsoft has not introduced intelligent editor for SQL Server. SQL Server has come a long way and with the enhancements in SQL Server Management Studio, it is anybody’s guess why it has not been incorporated. But I am using SQL Prompt for that missing functionality and it is definitely a cool tool, which gives the same feel as if we are working with Visual Studio for SQL. I hope Microsoft will include some of its features in next versions of SQL Server so that we don’t have to buy licenses of Red Gate.

Resharper - The Must-Have Productivity Tool for .NET Developers I have been using Resharper since a year and am very impressed with it. Microsoft development environments have always been very developer friendly, right since early Visual Studio days. This tool [Resharper] sits on top of Visual Studio and helps developers in finding errors on the fly, helps in code refactoring, navigating, code reformatting, clean up and yes in automatic code generation. It makes developer’s life easier, helps in producing high quality code and adds values. It has support for C#, VB.Net, ASP.Net, XML, XAML.

Copy the asp files to inetpub\wwwroot folder, set up the Database, install the COM+ DLLs and run the application, Yes this would have worked if you are working on IIS 4, 5, 6 but not anymore. There are more steps to do when you are working with IIS 7. And most of them are tricky and can make seasoned developer run around for solutions.
