I am converting some of the APIMASH projects from c# to vb.net and having to translate between the two. You can find the APIMASH projects at: https://github.com/apimash/... This is part of inheriting behavior of the System.Net.WebClient, for Windows Phone 8. The c# code looks like this: DownloadStringCompleted += (s, e) => { if (e.Error == null) { tcs.TrySetResult(e.Result); } else { tcs.TrySetException(e.Error); } }; I tried two c# to vb.net conversion tools, DevFusion: http://www.developerfusion.... ......

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?

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... ......

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 ......

I’ve become interested in a few aspects of SQL Server 2008. One is the new FILESTREAM datatype. The basic idea is to have a SQL datatype you can use in queries and searches and is managed by SQL but which does not have any particular size limitation. There are a number of articles on the multiple steps it takes to setup a database to utilize the new FILESTREAM features. I’m not going to cover that in this article.
