Yesterday I updated my Ghost installation on Azure Websites and my test blog stopped working: I enabled error logging and the error I got surprised me.
In this episode of Get Up and CODE, Iris and I get to interview the CEO and co-founder of PUSH. When I first saw the ad for push on Facebook, I knew that I had to have this device.
So late last year I was having trouble trying to figure out why a web site I’d been writing wasn’t working once published to Windows Azure. I can’t remember which library it was (JQuery.UI perhaps), but once published I was getting a lot of broken JS calls (“can’t load library”, etc).
I wrote a Visual Studio Add in that makes it possible to generate inline GUID's with Keyboard Shortcuts without opening the GUID tool true: Tools > Create GUID. There are tons of examples on how to create one yourself, but there was no downloadable solution. So I've added this project to save you some time.
When writing forms for your ASP.Net MVC websites the common approach to ensuring only real people use them site is to simply add an Html.AntiForgeryToken() to your form’s view mark-up and controller and be on your way.
This article shows how to use the XmlDiff class to compare two XML files and show these differences as an HTML document in a .NET Framework 1.1 application. The article also shows how to build a WinForms application for comparing XML files.
At BUILD last year, Guggs and I showed how Giorgio Sardo and his team here in DPE have been coding together with great companies — like Khan Academy — to move entire websites into Windows Store apps — more or less effortlessly.
I don't know about you, but WPF treeviews have been one of my WPF learning speed bumps. I'm starting to grok it now, but it's taken me a bit. And now I need a treeview that is not only searchable, but filterable too... Something just like this project!
I’ve been wanting to interview someone from Fitbit on Get Up and CODE for a while now and Iris and I finally got our chance.
In AMQP, buried in the basic.properties object that gets sent along with each published message, there is a delivery_mode setting. You can set it to either ‘persistent’ (1), or ‘non-persistent’ (2). It controls whether a message is persisted to disk or not.
One of the key factors in determining if a software application is usable is if the users can navigate around it easily, while at the same time finding relevant information and resources through the provision of a search functionality.
Windows Phone users are very familiar with the concept of an app bar at the bottom that, in collapsed state, gives a kind of indication that it’s available. In Windows Store apps app bars are just invisible, unless you specifically activate them by swiping in from the top or the bottom.
WebView is a control that enables developers to host HTML content. In the WinRT framework, WebView still lacks some features when we compare it to the WebBrowser of WPF. The WebView class inherits from the FrameworkElement class, but many properties of the base class don't work in WebView, like horizontal and vertical scrolling.
Since I first set my foot in the “Software Architecture” class back at the technical institute it feels like I’ve taken things for granted.
I’ve always found it a bit strange that we’ve had to use a language like C# or Java to write automated tests using Selenium.
As described in my blog post here, Entity Framework Tools support for SQL Server Compact 4.0 in Visual Studio 2013 is broken, because SQL Server Compact is no longer supported by Server Explorer in VS 2013. The latest release of my SQL Server Compact Toolbox, version 3.7.1, currently available in beta release from here, restores the Entity Framework Tools support for SQL Server Compact 4.0 by installing a simple DDEX provider.
While I was at the Angular ng-conf I had the opportunity to sit down with .NET luminaries Ward Bell, John Papa, and Dan Wahlin to discuss why Angular is so important to .NET developers with Ian Smith.
If you’re a web developer, I am sure you can relate to the feeling where you over and over again start up your web application, navigate to the local instance and try the same feature over and over again where you just thought you had fixed all the bugs.
A few weeks ago, I wrote a post that described how to maximize throughput between HDInsight clusters and Windows Azure Storage. One of the suggestions I made was to adjust your HDInsight cluster’s self-throttling mechanism - i.e. tune the fs.azure.selfthrottling.read/write.factor parameters.
Whether you are using automated test equipment or doing manual tests, you need to record the results accurately and you need to make sure that they are all in place for later study and consultation.
The APE stands for "The Asset Pipeline Editor" created by Pedro Güida -a former MSFT XNA/DX MVP.
Are you using SalesForce for CRM? Did you know SalesForce also offers an industry-leading enterprise social network called Chatter? Are your users starting to bring Windows devices in the BYOD fold? Would you not like to custom apps on web/desktop/mobile that allows your users to interact with SalesForce applications more easily?
Microsoft's documentation & sample for printing is too complex. The sample app for printing shows only how to print RichTextBlock. There's no tutorial to print the TextBox content in a Windows Store app. In this article, you'll find a helper class provides the simplest method to print the text box content.
All developers like to personalize their IDE, and even if lately I’m not doing that much of coding, I still like to have my Visual Studio 2013 “pimped” with the extensions that make work easier and faster. Here is a list of the extensions I’ve installed on my VS2013.
