Hanselman in Cow Town

Three of us made the journey down the QE2 today to watch the Alberta .Net User Group’s guest speaker Scott Hanselman.  The presentation was great and, although advertised as a talk on dasBlog, it covered a wide variety of coding subjects which were displayed using the dasBlog source code.  The new, and continuing development of my most recent project (www.bloggingonit.com) was starting to pose some questions to me and lucky for me Scott covered a number of the subjects today.  Probably the two most interesting for me were the elegant caching pattern and the use of IHttpHandler and response.Redirect combined to make a friendly URI.

I’m the Igloo Coder and I was shocked to hear Scott Hanselman describe a local bloke as his hero.
