Since I couldn't easily find this information on Google, here's the checksum info for the Windows 8 Enterprise Edition x86 Evaluation iso from Microsoft (http://msdn.microsoft.com/... Filename: 9200.16384.WIN8_RTM.120725-... b18e99c38177537dc2b115c3e23... ......

If you're like me and feel comfortable/more productive using a command-line, you've probably already installed Windows PowerShell. If you're UBER (again, like me) you've probably installed Cygwin to get that delicious Bash shell and all it's *nix friends. The only problem with Cygwin is that it runs in the dusty old Windows Command shell, which was ......

One of the first ruby gems I used was the Faker Gem, a nice little ruby gem that ...wait for it... Fakes Data! Usage is simple; first grab the gem using your gem program: $sudo gem install faker Now you can use it in your favorite ruby program or script. For now let's fire up irb and see what we can fake. require 'rubygems'require 'faker' #Let's see ......

So there is this meme going around about people posting their CodeMash schedules, so I thought I would be a sheep and do the same.

(Joe O’Brien/ Mark Peabody/ Leon Gersing) Agile ......

Let’s face it, 2009 was a bitch. My 2009 was an exceptionally crazy bitch. In short I was laid off, worked as an independent contractor for the fine folks of LeanDog, found a nice Consultant job at HMB, got married, went on a honeymoon, bought a house, paid out the ass to get out of my lease, and have been tackling a never ending honey-do list ever ......

On a recent project I needed to test my application with lots of data so I remembered my good friend the Faker Gem from the Ruby world. I didn’t know how to connect ActiveRecord to SQL Server, so I searched the webs and found this article by Ray Houston at Los Techies. Unfortunately since the article was 13 months old, the Ruby libraries have evolved ......

So I've been following PDC this week as much as possible, and came across this gem on Vance Morrison's Blog. Slides for our All Day PDC 2008 talks on: Performance By Design I recommend the Parallel Talk as it is more in depth than mine (they had more than 10 minutes for their presentation ). Two things to take away: You can run your Garbage Collector ......

Here are the slides for my “Shallow Dive: PFX” talk, as promised. http://www.slideshare.net/a... For the demos, I used the LINQRayTracer and C# Raytracer examples that come with the June08 PFX CTP. If you have any questions about PFX or the slides, just email or twitter DM me. Till next time, Alex Moore ......

So I gave my 10 minute “Shallow Dive: PFX” presentation at CONDG tonight, and it went really smoothly. There were a lot of good presentations tonight, and it’s wonderful to see people in the development community giving back by doing these presentations, teaching, and inspiring people. I will post my slide deck this weekend, after I add some notes so ......

Here are some links to help you get started with the Microsoft Parallel Extensions to the .Net Framework (PFX). Starting Out PFX CTP – Here are the latest CTP bits from June 2008.
