The LiveMeeting Q&A session with ScottGu was, as usual, very exciting. As promised, here are some of the highlights from his answers. Microsoft’s Development Process In terms of the development process at Microsoft, Scott said that more projects will be developed with openness, transparency, more frequent releases, relying on customers’ feedback and with OSI open source licenses as in the case of ASP.NET MVC. Silverlight In regards to Silverlight 3 release date, it might be around the July 10th. ...
One of the cool things about ASP.NET 4.0 is the Query Extender and the ability to search within DataContext without using WHERE clause, writing extensive code etc., It works on the new set of namespace i.e. “System.Web.UI.WebControls.... namespace. I am trying to put up an extensive sample using QueryExtender in the next post, but for this post, I wanted to share an error that you might hit when trying to implement the Query Extender control with Search Expression, Range Expression etc., ...
Last month (May 2009) Microsoft has released its first beta for Visual Studio Team System 2010 and Team Foundation Server 2010 release, two of the most waited and wanted tools in developer community. From my point of view these two releases are going to be one of the most historical releases, as lots of really cool stuffs has been added with respect to the last version. However, as the Beta 1 releases are pretty infant, there are very limited resources available in the web and community, so I just ...
Introduction After a short sojourn with the Visual Studio 2010 Beta, I’m back with the next part. Pop quiz – can you run Visual Studio Team Foundation and Visual Studio Professional without Team Suite? Well some wit told a client you could not – so I spent some of the Bank Holiday proving otherwise – Another article there on setting it up, but in general it was incredibly easy for a server app! Anyway I digress back to the subject at hand – hosting a Silverlight Application in an Azure Application. ...
This is how the start up screen in Visual Studio 2010 looks like. I think many of you already observed that there is complete change in the startup screen and also notify the screen is developed using the WPF. This screen made me really happy not only for what I can do with the screen, rather then what is the level of customization the Microsoft is providing the startup screen itself. Let me walk you through the start page. In start page there are 3 main options named Welcome, Projects and Visual ...
Finally I am able to download the Visual studio 2010 and prepared my system to install visual studio. I downloaded VS2010Beta1ENU_PRO_2PartsTo... and VS2010Beta1ENU_PRO_2PartsTo... files from here. I took the back up of my VHD (Virtual Hard Disk) which is a Windows XP with Office 2007, Visual Studio 2008 professional, SQL Server 2005 Express edition, Silver light 2.0 SDK and Microsoft Expression 2.0. Let’s see how my installation went on. I started my installation by double clicking ...

I can't believe I've been writing packages for Visual Studio and didn't know about the series of blog articles on Visual Studio Exensibility by DiveDeeper or about the VSXtra project. Since I want a quick index of the LearnVSXNow! series, I'm posting links to every article. This is a series every managed package framework developer should read. LearnVSXNow!

Here are some screen shots from VS2010 Beta. The first thing I noticed is that Team Explorer is (finally) installed with the base install. The new look has an Expression-Blendy feel to it… Also, I noticed that it defaults to a single tool bar line at the top. Nice!

I’ve just published the second in a series of WCF/WF 4.0 webcasts on BloggersGuides.net. The second webcasts looks at the Flowchart workflow designer, and how it can be used to implement a simple electronic flight check in scenario. I found the Flowchart workflow designer very easy and intuitive to work with, the flight check in workflow was the first flowchart workflow I have built, and it only took about 15 minutes to get it running. The flowchart designer has improved considerably since the PDC ...

*Moved to: Solution to connecting to TFS using HTTPS over the Internet from behind ISAThis problem it seams is to do with the way Visual Studio 2010 connects to your TFS server over HTTPS. The default value for “BypassProxyOnLocal” in Visual Studio 2008 was “False”, but it has been changed to “True” for Visual Studio 2010 Beta 1. It should be noted that this is currently a Beta 1 workaround and this behaviour may be updated for Beta 2 and RTM. You can fix this by adding the following registry keys ...
Check the add-ins you installed before Visual Studio 2010 if you enabled VS 2010 integration in them. Particularly TestDriven.NET is the problem. Go to “Add Remove Programs” / “Programs and Features”, find Test Driven.NET, click “Change”, and then modify it to remove VS2010 integration from it. Also, if you are using AnkhSVN, make sure to download a new latest daily update build and use that, otherwise, you’ll get an exception when starting VS 2010. I’ll be writing more about VSTS 2010 and .NET 4.0 ...

*Moved to: Visual Studio 2010 Supports UMLJust in case you have been living in a shed at the bottom of the garden, Visual Studio 2010 is to support UML.

*Moved to: Multi-Targeting in Visual Studio 2010We thought that we had it good in Visual Studio 2008, being able to target .NET 2.0, 3.0 and 3.5, but in reality they were all running on the .NET 2.0 Runtime, just with a different set of available libraries. Well Visual Studio 2010 take it that little bit further by being able to target .NET 2.0, 3.0, 3.5 and 4.0. Read more...Follow my new blog on http://blog.hinshelwood.com ...

I have started talking to developers about what they can expect in Entity Framework V2 such as in my session at DevWeek 2009 (Check out the slides and links).

Seems that SharePoint rocks nowadays :-) Last year, the SharePoint business unit surpassed 100 million licenses and $1 billion in total revenue, according to Microsoft. And as read on the Redmond Developer News site, with the coming of Visual studio 2010: "Microsoft has been scaling up our guidance, and our application and tools, really, really fast," Andrew says, noting that Visual Studio 2010 will fully integrate SharePoint development support. That is something to look forward... :-) ...

I did a poll on the 8th of April which asked the question: What language would you choose to use 12 months from today if you were given the chance to develop a brand new application and you were allowed to choose the programming language? The result was rather interesting. Over 50% of you went with C#, three times more than Visual Basic (.NET), with C++ coming in a distant 3rd. BBC Basic scored rather well. I think this recognises that for many of us we miss the interactive environments that came ...

Angela Binkowski covered Visual Studio 2010 focusing on the architecture tools at the most recent CAG meeting. This was a great evening with a lot of lively discussion.

The next versions of C# and VB will have improved parity between them. From the consultant perspective, this is important because one can't always choose which language to use. Although a seasoned C# developer can program in VB as well, it seems that gotchas appear and you have to refer to the documentation to figure out how do something that you wouldn't even need to think about in your primary language. The goal of the Visual Studio Managed Languages team is to maintain the character of each language ...
Here's a quick overview of what was most trafficked in 2008 on WTFNext. This is made possible by the results from Google Analytics and unique pageviews that have been recorded since early November.

What I've learned from the results is in general, the posts I make are useful to someone. Which is great news to begin with. Also, I've decided to start a separate blog soon on Second Life ...
Jason posted a great episode on our new 10-4 show on Channel9 that covers customizing the Visual Studio 2010 start page. The start page is defined in XAML (Markup language for Windows Presentation Foundation), so adding new tabs, buttons and other functionality is as easy as editing the XAML in Visual Studio or any text editor. You can do even more than just edit the XAML. Because the start page is using XAML and Windows Presentation Foundation, you can also add your own WPF controls to the mix. ...
