In this article by Andrew Siemer, we will cover the most important aspect of any community site—making friends. We will divide this article in two parts. This part starts with the discussion of Problem, that is, what we need to do to achieve success for the article's topic—finding and inviting friends to your network on a community site. It then moves to Design part where we decide on our requirements, and finally the article reaches Solution part where we begin discussing how to actually implement the features.Read ASP.NET Social Networks—Making Friends (Part 1) in full
In this article by Andrew Siemer, we will talk about the concept of Blogging and how it could be applied to our community site Fisharoo.

SQL Server is a very large subject in itself. Rather than attempting to cover all aspects of SQL Server database access, this article focuses on those areas where you are likely to gain the biggest payoffs.
In this article by Matt Perdeck, author of ASP.NET Site Performance Secret, we will take a look at the following:
- Execution plan reuse
If the server is not running out of memory, CPU capacity, or threads and requests are still taking long to complete, chances are that the server has to wait too long for off-box resources, such as the database.
In this article by Matt Perdeck, author of ASP.NET Site Performance Secret, we'll cover the following topics:
- How to measure the wait times for each off-box resource using custom counters
- Waiting concurrently instead of sequentially
- Improving session state performance
- Reducing thread-locking delays

These days, Model View Controller (MVC) is a buzzword in the ASP.NET community, thanks to the upcoming ASP.NET MVC Framework that Microsoft is expected to launch soon. The Framework allows easier adoption of the different MVC patterns in our web applications.In this article by Vivek Thakur, we discuss ASP.NET MVC Framework in detail with the help of a Sample Project. We also take a glance at Unit Testing with reference to ASP.NET MVC Framework.
The ASP.NET MVC framework was released by Microsoft as an alternative approach to webforms when creating ASP.NET based web applications. The ASP.NET MVC framework is not a replacement or upgrade of webforms, but merely another way of programming your web applications so that we can get the benefits of an MVC design with much less effort.Read ASP.NET MVC Framework in full
Validation is the key to any application that accepts input of any kind, but where should it be implemented—on the client where it is most responsive, in the business logic where it is most central, or in the data layer where it is most secure? ASP.NET MVC provides a simple yet powerful framework for defining validation from a central location that is decoupled from the data layer; validation that makes use of client scripting without being dependent on it; and with all this, keeping the validation DRY.
In this article by Andrew Siemer and Richard Kimber, authors of ASP.NET MVC 2 Cookbook, we will cover:
- Basic input validation
- Data annotations
- Client-side validation with jQuery
- Custom validators
- Remote validation with jQuery
This article by Atul Gupta, Sudhanshu Hate and Andrew Siemer, authors of ASP.NET 4 Social Networking, helps you create a messaging system that will resemble a webbased email application similar to Hotmail or Gmail. We will also learn how to implement the Xinha WYSIWYG editor in a way that can be re-used easily across the site for complex inputs.
Once a user can create and send messages, we will then create a way for other users to receive and read those messages queued up in their inbox. Once we have this messaging subsystem in place we can hook up our other features in a way that they too can send messages—such as when a user accepts a friend request we can show the acceptance of that request in the friend's Inbox. This article will not only allow our users to send messages to each other but also provide our system with a way to communicate with our user base efficiently. This is not only a good feature to have in your community site but also a basic requirement for it.Read ASP.NET 4 Social Networking: Implementing a Complete Messaging System in full
