Did a short MSDN TV Spot today…

style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: Arial">Erica Wiechers from the href="http://msdn.microsoft.com/theshow/">.NET Show fame came by my office
today and shot a short segment for href="http://msdn.microsoft.com/msdntv/default.aspx">MSDN TV about how the
GC works and the href="http://www.gotdotnet.com/team/libraries/whitepapers/resourcemanagement/resourcemanagement.aspx">Dispose
pattern.  I thought it went
fairly well.  I was impressed at how
quick it went, it was so easy to get it scheduled and shot! prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office"

style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: Arial">She said it would take a couple of
weeks to get it edited, etc… I’ll of course let you know when it is up there…

style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: Arial">But my question for you is who would
you like to see do one of these segments and what would you like to hear
about?  You make a reasonable
suggestion (where I get to define what reasonable is) and I will push them to do
it.  I of course can’t make them do
it (unless they happen to work for me;-)).. But give them to me

    I’d like to see a discussion from the ADO.NET team about the pros/cons of using typed and untyped datasets against using custom business entity objects (roll your own approach). I think a lot of people out in the community are not sure which approach to take and could use some more guidance. The Data Access Architecture Guide touches on these topics lightly, but in a lot of cases the real world design issues and implications of a particular approach aren’t touched upon. Thanks!!

    I’d encourage MarkBou to talk about how data binding really works. I once caught an informal talk on it and learned tons.

    Just what is an appdomain? What does it do for me? When is it appropriate to use? I’ve seen lots and lots of question on how to get code into an appdomain and get it running.

    And then there is CAS. I think I’ve got a mental model of when to use asserts, denys, demands, but I can’t be too sure. It’s gets more complicated when you throw in link demands.

    I’m a big fan of some of the 5-10 minute long MSDN TV shorts that have been up. I’m gathering them all up so I can play them during before class and during lunch, maybe the students will gleem some knowledge.
    As for topics, I’d really like to see some best practice type stuff up there along with how to use FxCop.

    Dot Net? Who cares about dot net! I’d like to hear more about Erica Wiechers. What she does she do in her free time, what kind of movies she like, long walks on the beach? Hubba hubba!
