Since becoming a Pluralsight author, I’ve often needed to get the total duration of all the .wmv files inside of a directory. I would typically use an application that they provide, but it requires you to load each Module one by one. I decided I’d write a quick and dirty application that would return the total duration using the WindowsMediaPlayer class.
One of the great features in my opinion of Azure Mobile Services is the “quickstart” app – a ready-to-use, fully-functional application which you can get from the portal in many of the supported platforms, and start running right away. I find it to be a great way to learn about the service and the client SDK for the selected platform.
Yes, that is right. We actually got Scott Hanselman on the show. How cool is that? Scott is actually quite a fit guy—he even demonstrated some super strict from dumbbell curls during the show for Iris and I.
As you may know, SQL Server Compact version 4.0 does not have support for Merge Replication and Remote Data Access (you can still use RDA, however).
While this example is easy to understand – when facing less than trivial test it can be downright impossible to understand the reason for the failure without a good error message (e.c. the 2nd message).
OneTrueError is my new startup which also is a member of Microsoft BizSpark. This post is about the client library for ASP.NET (WebForms/MVC/WebAPI).

On Jan 20 2014, Microsoft released NuGet package for yet another version of ASP.NET MVC and it is at version 5.1 now. Lets take a lap around what are the new things in ASP.NET MVC 5.1 in this blog post.
At the last developer user group, a discussion around .NET and the community came up where an issue was identified that because Microsoft does such a good job of communication around .NET, anything outside their realm is pretty much ignored.
I have a new training video published on Pluralsight today called, “Core Telerik Windows Phone 8 Controls”.
This time, we will have look on how to integrate tickets from uservoice into your Windows Phone app. Users love to see a history of their tickets they submitted to a customer service. They can review them again, and maybe help also other users by showing or telling them about it.
Visual Studio 2013.1 has RTW'd (Released To Web), is now live and available for download. It's mostly, like 99%, bug fixes.
