I know this topic is very hot, so I decided to write here about it.
What I would generally ask in interview for those positions (technically) are the following?
- Latest trends in technology around the world
- For me you got to be in the look for latest and greatest
- SOA and types of SOA
- WCF, Service Bus & types
- Big Data
- Cloud computing & providers and what is going on in that world
- Design patterns (specifically gangs of four)
- Unit Testing (I go in some detail here)
- Agile (Scrum to be specific)
- TDD, DDD
Well those are the most critical to me.
If I want to cut it short, I start with definition of code coverage and the frameworks used. A seasoned person will know this and this generally tells me how skilled the person is.
Really awesome and really simplified now….
Ohh before I forgot, this is a nice tweet by .NET Team for James.
From the free and proven IoC containers/frameworks, please let me know which ones you prefer to use and what makes you choose that one instead of the others?
Thanks in advance for your inputs.
Don’t you ever wonder to print out that whiteboard or have it emailed to you?

Not to mention that those pens smell bad often times and they go low in ink etc when you need it most.
Here is a solution (expensive solution though $1000.00+)

It is actually not difficult to move your asp.net application to Azure even if you are using Sessions.
This is just because of the services offered by Azure Cache. In the end, you only need to make few changes your web.config and you will be running your session through distributed cache which is provided by Azure Cache.
In simple terms, the following is the only thing you need to do:
<sessionState mode=”Custom” customProvider=”DistributedSessionProvider”>

I still can’t believe there is still no support for Azure in Dev 11 / .Net 4.5
There are ways to do so but not nice yet.
I would like to get the bits to publish my .Net 4.5 ASAP!
Building a new tool for personal use which can become commercial later on (so many alternatives already out there in market anyway) where my “My Documents” to be synced with the blob account using sync framework.
I am totally amazed with the amount of work Microsoft did for sync framework, it is really awesome.
Very well done and most problems are just simplified.
Starter blog/code for this is: http://code.msdn.microsoft.com/windowsazure/Synchronizing-Files-to-a14ecf57
Next: Syncing database to SQL Azure using sync framework (I see lots of work done around this only)
