One of the benefits of moving back to Sweden was for sure the 6 weeks of vacation I get every year… yeah you read it right, 6 weeks:) I came back yesterday from taking 4 of those weeks and although I do really love my job it sure is really hard to get into it again…
This season I am going to start off soft with two books that were recommended to me, and since I constantly get emails asking for reading recommendations I thought I’d share…
The first one is “Debugging Microsoft .NET 2.0 Applications“, from the “orignial bugslayer” John Robbins. When I first started debugging his name came up in pretty much every conversation you had with someone about debugging. He is definitely a legend in the field… and I have really enjoyed reading his Bugslayer columns in MSDN magazine.
My buddy Doug raved about the book, and he is a hard core debugger so I think it will be a must buy.
The second one is a book called “The Expression Web Developer’s Guide to ASP.NET: Learn to create ASP.NET applications using Visual Web Developer” by a colleague of mine Jim Cheshire. He is one of my counterparts (Escalation Engineer in ASP.NET) in the US, and knowing his previous work, i believe that the book will be well worth reading.
Anyways… I am working on a post relating to a memory investigation on 64 bit .net which will hopefully be done shortly so tune in again soon.
Back to work, laters y’all.
