Excellent article on getting AD info using C#

I’m always getting, updating, and validating against AD info at my company, and today I needed to pull several different schema attributes in one method, and kept running into more and more trouble. Code got bigger and bigger, and I thought there had to be a way to simplify this. I then ran across a CodeProject article definitely worth mentioning. The author, Rajasekhara Sambangi does an excellent job of demonstrating a simplified way of pulling just about anything from AD by passing in the SearchResult object and the property name you’re searching for into a basic method, and the result is the value of the key! The link to the article is here.

New code library site

I created a basic code library site to host all of the code snippets I’ve gathered and/or created over time. Go here to visit the site.

It’s pretty basic and empty right now, I’ll dress it up a little more as time goes on. I’m also trying to determine a better way of sub-categorizing the code in each of the language tabs. I welcome suggestions. Enjoy!
