Installing .Net 3.5 SP1 can be difficult, especially when below screen appears 🙂
A colleague of mine stumbled upon this today. You cannot install SP1 because the SP1 install setup process is running 😀
I just had to share it with you.
In .Net 3.5 SP1 it is now possible to serialize any object that has a default constructor without decorating it with [DataContract] or [Serializable].
Developers have these choices now when serializing objects:
I must say, that I’m not keen on this new feature. I prefer explicit serialization to implicit serialization. I predict that implicit serialization of entire object graphs will cause performance problems for many .Net developers in the years to come. This could also be a good thing as I am a consultant 😉
Aaron Skonnard has a more detailed blog post about the new serialization features in .Net 3.5 SP1.
This week I hosted two sessions at two different events for Microsoft Denmark. One at Radisson SAS Scandinavia Hotel in Århus and one in Microsoft Denmark’s headquarter in Hellerup.
It was fun at the feedback was very positive. The best part was during the breaks with great edifying technical discussions. All the slides are available at Miracle’s homepage.
