Win Development tools for the .NET developer

In this feature, we highlight development tools that augment all phases and types of .NET application development.

More Highlights
Definitions
  • scripting language

    A scripting language is a form of programming language that is usually interpreted rather than compiled. Scripting languages are typically converted into machine code on the fly during runtime by a program called an interpreter.

  • Internet

    The Internet, sometimes called simply "the Net," is a worldwide system of computer networks - a network of networks in which users at any one computer can, if they have permission, get information from any other computer (and sometimes talk directly to users at other computers).

  • domain name

    A domain name locates an organization or other entity on the Internet. For example, the domain name "www.totalbaseball.com" locates an Internet address for "totalbaseball.com" at Internet point 199.0.0.2 and a particular host server named "www."

  • static IP address/dynamic IP address

    A static IP address is a number (in the form of a dotted quad) that is assigned to a computer by an Internet service provider (ISP) to be its permanent address on the Internet. Computers use IP addresses to locate and talk to each other on the Internet, much the same way people use phone numbers to locate and talk to one another on the telephone. When you want to visit whatis.com, your computer asks a domain name system (DNS) server (think telephone information operator) for the correct dotted quad number (think phone number) for whatis.com and your computer uses the answer it receives to connect to the whatis.com server.
