Experienced Software Developer Still Faces to Code or Basic Acknowledge Test When Interview

As a IT guy, a Software Developer, a Microsoft technologies developer (from C++ to .NET ) with over 24 years development history, I still have to face to some awkward (embarrassed ? ) situations such as job interviews. I left school so many years, but some interviews still needed me to give correct answers for some basic computer and programming acknowledges, such as: What is C# ? What features does OO have ? or I was asked for writing code to give a good performance program to implement a scanning or searching case based on stack or queue ….

Host ASP.NET Web API In WPF Application

WCF Web API is changed to ASP.NET Web API. ASP.NET Web API has the feature of self-host. In Microsoft official site, they have provided two simples ASP.NET Web API self-host samples. However, they are too simple and actually they looks like the “same” one because those 2 samples are Console applications and they use very similar content.


Most of content in this post from Microsoft and related websites:

Silverlight Cross Domain Web Service Access Error

When you created WCF services, if you put your services on different severs in some case, just like me, for example: I created a WCF application which includes 2 web services, I deployed this WCF application onto 2 places, the one is on the server in my office, another one I put on my local laptop PC, the reason I put 2 copies of the WCF application to 2 different places is because I need to often modify one of the 2 web services, the another one I don't need to modify. I have also 2 other applications to consume those 2 web services, I set the service reference to my office one, set another service reference to my local pc one.
