Performance Monitor(perfmon.exe) must for window developers

Recently I attended Microsoft Community Tech Days at New Delhi. The last session of the event was taken by Bijoy who is presently working with Microsoft. The session was about .NET tips and tricks. The session was extremely informative and really forced all the developers that were present in that auditorium to actually think about the process we take for measuring the resources and also the process we use for debugging an application. He laid stress on many tools one of which was performance monitor (Perfmon).
Perfmon is supplied by the Microsoft with the operating system and there is no need for us to install anything to use it. It can actually capture live data about the performance of our system. A newly installed software or monitor the changes that take place in the registry during a particular time period.
A lot of detailed information is present at TechNet. But there were no videos for the starters so here is one giving Detailed description about how to get started.

Customized Online Learning Dangerous as it is Necessary

The recent uprise in Online Learning Platform like Pluralsight, Coursera has raised some important questions over traditional learning system and also on traditional examination systems.
The fact that online learning courses are derived from what users need and not what should be actually taught has also raised serious concerns about what is finally going inside the heads of professionals.

Traditional system while teaching any subject also includes major things that might never be used in real life but still is important to actual context of that particular subject. The syllabus goes through the hands of experts before finally reaching the learners. Online education / Videos have completely disrupted this system and now only what is needed is taught leaving out all the motivational factors and context of the subject that brings glamour and other related attributes to the identity of the subject.

So yes while system has to evolve to teach students more than C++ in today's world bu…

Dynaminism in .Net 4.0

few dayz ago came across THIS question.
the solution to this can easily be figured out by the new dynamic features introduced in .Net 4.0.
i have made a project to demonstrate this.
the main code in the project goes like this

publicstaticdynamic[] GetDynamicObject(DataTable dt, Dictionary<string, string> mapping)
        {
List<dynamic> returnList = newList<dynamic>();
foreach (DataRow row in dt.Rows)
            {
dynamic obj = newExpandoObject();
var objectDic = (IDictionary<string, object>)obj;
foreach (DataColumn column in dt.Columns)
                {
                    objectDic.Add(mapping!=null?mapping.ContainsKey(column.ColumnName) ? mapping[column.ColumnName] : column.ColumnName:column.ColumnName,row[column]);
                }
                returnList.Add(obj);
            }
return returnList.ToArray();
        }The static method here named "GetDynamicObject" simply takes a data table(which can be populated by the data in the database) and a dictionary of…

Problem with Google visualization API- DataTable

One of the most widely charting API is the Google visualization API. Which enables the developers to create charts using
javascript at runtime by supplying the data in a particular format. I had to use this API with ASP.Net. So the major problem in
front of me was how to transfer the data in my database to the client side JavaScript.
Which I could solve by using .ashx pages. I created my own class for
transforming .Net DataTable to a JSON string. The final problem that I faced was that when I transferred the
JSON string to the client side using Jquery AJAX method though it was parsing
the JSON correctly. The Google DataTable was being formed correctly the final
AnnonatedTimeline I was trying to make with that JSON data was showing errors. So
to debug I created a Google DataTable manually and converted it into JSON using
the method it provides. The JSON string that was given out by Google’s very own
DataTable and my JSON string were exact match still, still mine was showing
errors. Aft…
