Studio for Wijmo MVC Review
I was recently asked to review Studio for Wijmo MVC by Component One and, overall, I am impressed. There are 2 major components of this. The first is Wijmo Complete which is a collection of over 30 UI widgets (very similar to jQuery UI). The second is Wijmo Scaffolding for MVC which builds upon the scaffolding that was released as part of the MVC 3 Tools Update (note: is does *not* build on top of powershell-based MVC Scaffolding which Microsoft released earlier this year). Some of the Wijmo widgets ......

Leverage T4Scaffolding for WCF Web API
MvcScaffolding is a tremendous productivity improvement for MVC developers. Earlier this year, Steve Sanderson posted the definitive 7-part series on MvcScaffolding which is a must-read for anyone serious about doing scaffolding. The best part about the scaffolding infrastructure is that MvcScaffolding is actually built on top of another package called T4Scaffolding. T4Scaffolding can be used as the basis for *any* scaffolding – not just MVC projects. To that end, we can enjoy the same power of MvcScaffolding ......

Package Manager Console For More Than Managing Packages
Like most developers, I prefer to not have to pick up the mouse if I don’t have to. I use the Executor launcher for almost everything so it’s extremely rare for me to ever click the “Start” button in Windows. I also use shortcuts keys when I can so I don’t have to pick up the mouse. By now most people know that the Package Manager Console that comes with NuGet is PowerShell embedded inside of Visual Studio. It is based on its PowerConsole predecessor which was the first (that I’m aware of) to embed ......

Create a FULL Local NuGet Repository with PowerShell
UPDATE: with the release of NuGet 1.0 RTM, this script has some breaking changes. For an updated version, see this post by Jon Galloway: Downloading a local NuGet repository with PowerShell. NuGet is simply awesome. Despite its relative infancy, it has already established itself as the standard for .NET package management. You can easily add packages from the public feed or even from a local directory on your machine. Phil Haack already has an excellent post describing how you set up a local feed. ......

Velocity CTP3 Set up for ASP.NET Session State
Historically I have always viewed ASP.NET session state as “pure evil.” In-proc session state is about as unreliable as you can get given that you can have timeouts, ASP.NET might recycle itself, IIS might get bounced, no scalability, and cannot work in a web farm. SQL Session state is very resilient and works in web farm scenarios but the performance is not good and at that point you might as well be better off writing your own strongly-typed data access layer rather than blobbing everything in ......

Developer Tools and Utilities
I often get asked by other developers at work or during presentations about various tools that I use. Most of the tools I use are relatively well known, but I'm going to create this post so that I have a single point where you can download everything without a bunch of Googling. Almost all of the tools on this list are free. My only disclaimer is that this is simply my personal list of the tools I use most often. If you're looking for a *real* list that is extremely comprehensive, then I recommended ......

Use PowerShell to Clean your Visual Studio solution
There are lots of times when I want to do a "Clean" of my VS.NET solution. Obviously, the most common way to do this is to right-click your solution in the solution explorer and select "Clean Solution". However, there are 2 drawbacks of this. One is that if you have files sitting in your bin or obj directories that are not in some way linked to your solution, they won't be removed. Additionally, sometimes you just want to do a quick clean of a directory structure without having to fire up VS.NET. ......
