In one of my previous posts, I talked about using SQLDependency as a mechanism for detecting triggers on certain SQL queries. In this post, I’ll talk about how to use this mechanism to display real-time data in web applications using SignalR.

In order to capture what exactly was going wrong there, I have added a new extension method to the IEnumerable interface, allowing item-based exception handling on collections and LINQ statements.
At some point, any developer will have to write some code that must be executed at regular intervals. In SharePoint for instance, timerjobs were (!) very easy to create.
