.NET Development

A couple of months ago my esteemed Microsoft Developer Evangelist, Joe Healy visited our user group and spent some time going through the APIMASH starter projects the DPE’s have been working on. I was impressed!! It looked like fun and thought that members of my user group would respond to these fairly simple but complete examples for Windows 8, Windows Phone 8 and now Windows 8.1. Being a Visual Basic .net MVP I noticed that none of these were done with vb.net and know that there are millions of ......

As of today, the official release of Lightswitch is now available. Visit: http://www.microsoft.com/vi... or you can download from your MSDN subscription. What is Lightswitch? It is basically a simple to use application generator that can be used to build applications within minutes in many cases. If you have an existing, well structured (primary keys, relationships) SQL Server database you are just a few clicks away from an administration tool and well on the way to a full ......

I’ve been meaning to read this book for a while and finally did!! Don’t let the title fool you, it could have been “Modern Object Oriented development with .NET”. In the context of improving an existing active project (brownfield) this books walks you through separation of concerns, isolating dependencies, test driven development and many other concepts in a very practical and easy to understand way. They also cover many of the political, cultural and personality issues you will face working with ......

Always happy to yap about community!!

Herve Roggero has just published a paper that outlines patterns for scaling using SQL Azure and the Blue Syntax (he and Scott Klein’s company) sharding api. You can find the paper at: http://www.bluesyntax.net/f... Herve and Scott have also just released an Apress book Pro SQL Azure. The idea of being able to split (shard) database operations automatically and control them from a web based management console is very appealing. These ideas have been talked about for a long time ......

Ok, honestly, I’m posting this so I can find it when I need it but Visual Studio 2010 uses a new report viewer that is compatible with .net 4.0. http://www.microsoft.com/do... Bill McCarthy has some complaints (and a work around): http://msmvps.com/blogs/bil... ......

Found an interesting thing that others have run across but it is the first time I’ve seen it. A customer emailed to say that the SQL 2008 db that I had helped him with seemed to be going into recovery mode on a regular basis while watching the SQL Management Studio screen. Needless to say he was a bit nervous and about to take some drastic steps. Eventually he found that the Auto Close option was set to true. When this is set to true, the database automatically closes all connections and unlocks ......

This week Scott Cate came to South Florida and gave a great talk on his Visual Studio shortcuts and how he uses them. You can find a collection of short video’s he has done at: http://scottcate.com/tricks/ Also you might want to check out Sara Ford’s blog: http://blogs.msdn.com/saraf... she started doing a tip a day but has many more now. Scott covers many of these in the videos. And.. as with past releases, the languages team has provided PDF’s with a lot of keyboard shortcuts, this ......
