Welcome to 2011, it is already shaping up to be a very exciting year. The title of the post is not about charitable giving, although that is also a great topic. Application Lifecycle Management and the Systems that support the environment is, and 2011 will be a year where I expect many teams to invest heavily in this area. For those not familiar with ALM, it can be simplified down to "A comprehensive view of all of the iteas, requirements, activities and artifacts that impact an application over ...

The term "Localization" defined as "Process of translating resources for a specific culture/languages", where "Globalization" defined "Process of designing applications that can adapt to different cultures/languages".

Whilst this book is about the building of a CMS system, the subtitle of "Advanced Techniques for C# Developers using the .Net 4 Framework" is better.

Show it to budget holders that are holding out on upgrading to VS2010 - it will encourage them to agree to the upgrade. I am ...
Sandbox solution is a new feature introduced in SharePoint 2010. It's a secured wrapper around webparts and other elements with limitations. There is no thumb rule that every webpart in SharePoint 2010 belongs to Sandbox Solution. But it's recommended to develop webparts with Sandbox solution. It allows administrators to monitor the solutions and control as required. SharePoint Site Collection administrators can view the resource utilization of each solution and can block if it consumes too much ...
I was lucky enough to attend Visual Studio Live! in Orlando on November 14th-17th. There were so many great speakers and the networking was great. I met a lot of really cool people and we talked about everything .NET (from WP7, Silverlight, C#, ASP.NET WebForms, AJAX, MVC 3.. and so forth). I took a lot of notes during all the sessions and wanted to provide it to those that could not come out. If you follow me on Twitter then you have seen most of these. Most of the authors put slides/source code ...
It's a common question very often I've been asked. Well , Microsoft defines "SharePoint is a Business Collaboration Platform for the Enterprise and the Internet".

Basically It's a portal which has functionalities for intranet website. The features can be used as it is or can be customized minimum level. SharePoint ...

Visual Studio 2010 is the new and improved development tool for SharePoint 2010. Major improvements are that all the Project Templates for SharePoint 2010 are included out of the box. This means a better development experience with debugging, unit testing, TFS!!! and automated builds! As I was experimenting with the overall experience I noticed some funny things I thought I would blog about. 1) Visual Web Parts are the only option available as part of a template. This can be kind of confusing to ...

Today, I found a good answer on syntax highlighting for Razor. In the Visual Studio Gallery located at http://visualstudiogallery.... a new Visual Studio extension has been recently added for a “Razor Syntax Highlighter”. To leverage this new extension, I had to remove the editor mapping for .cshtml files in the Visual Studio Text Editor/File Extensions window (as outlined in my previous blog post) and install the highlighter extension. As ...

Recently, I've been thinking of ranting about Microsoft's BizTalk 2010 release plan. I was not only going to blog about it; but was also thinking to vent my frustration all over the net. Why??? Well.... Microsoft always found it difficult to release BizTalk in conjunction with the newest .NET and Visual Studio releases. On some occasions they were delayed by more than a year. It makes it difficult for organizations like ours to come up with a good upgrade strategy. Some applications can be upgraded ...
[Source: http://geekswithblogs.net/E... A quick tip that may save a lot of anguish. The UML diagrams and editor in Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate are excellent, and you can quickly and easily create very snazzy diagrams like this: - and link components to TFS Work Items. But if you want to base a new diagram from an existing one, don't copy and paste the file from Solution Explorer. VS will let you do it, but what you end up with is effectively a shallow copy, where components in your new ...
Back in April I began to work with Oracle again after a multiple year absence from doing so. So naturally I decided I would install Oracle on my home system so I could reacquaint myself with it. That proved to be more difficult than I expected. I was able to get Oracle 10g Express downloaded and installed but could not connect to it. So, to save someone else some of the grief I went through let me go through the final sequence of steps that resulted in a solid working Oracle development environment. ...
I’ve blogged about the tools and have played with the hardware, now its time to put an application on the actual Windows Phone 7 hardware. I will guide you through the entire process step-by-step. Please note that I have an early version of the phone and had to get a Connect Login to download Zune 4.7. If you are reading this after the phone has launched then you can probably just go to the Zune web page and download it directly. You will also want to skip down until the next section that starts ...
A few months ago Visual Studio 2010 RTM was released. My friend Cory and I noticed a few features that would really come in handy but were not included in the release. After learning how to write extensions, we decided to create a few of our own. We used all of them locally for a while. Around April/May we decided to publish them to the Visual Studio Gallery so they can help other developers as well. Overall, I'm pretty satisfied with the outcome. We got a lot of good feedback on them and it seems ...

When you right-click on your WPF project in Visual Studio 2010 (VS2010) and select Add / New Item... / Text File, the "Build Action" on this file is automatically set to "Resource." So, when you ship your application, this text file will be embedded within it. If this was simply meant to be a readme file for your own benefit, you may not want it embedded in your app. In this case, click on the text file in Solution Explorer (or Solution Navigator), go to the Properties window, and change "Build Action" ...
The BizTalk Server team announced today that BizTalk Server 2010 has RTMd. That's a relief, as my reputation was on the line regarding RTM before the end of the month. Just this Tuesday I confidently told a prospective customer to expect an imminent announcement. I've been playing with BTS 2010 for a little while now. It has been my constant companion while writing several chapters for the forthcoming BizTalk Server 2010 Unleashed. It looks great. As well as bringing BTS up to date with Visual Studio ...
When you first run Visual Studio 2010 (VS2010), it asks you to select a profile (e.g. C#, C++). This determines the Start Page displayed when VS2010 starts. Once you pick this, there appears to be no easy way to change your selection (at least none that I've found). To see which start pages are available to you, look in the following directory: 32-bit Windows: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\IDE\StartPages\en 64-bit Windows: C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\IDE\StartPages\en ...
Final Solution: I figured it out! Open your project in VS2010, select the Project menu and choose Properties..., and click the dropdown next to Platform Toolset. You can select between v100 (VS2010), v90 (VS2008), and Windows7.1SDK. Select the 7.1 SDK and click OK. Now you're all set. Note that you can use v90 to build apps that compile for older versions of Windows as long as you have VS2008 already installed on your machine. --------- The information below is just kept to remind me what I did. ...

I created a getting started guide for the MVVM pattern back in June 2010. Since the guide came out, I had several developers ask me when I was going to publish my MVVM example that I had promised. I played around with a way to present this that did not seem like the same old MVVM blog post that everyone has already written. Most of the blog post that I ran across explaining the pattern had lots of complicated diagrams and code snippets that would leave out vital pieces of information. I decided that ...
For those of you who have pinned any program to your Windows 7 taskbar, you can hold down the Ctrl and Shift keys when clicking the icon and it will launch it with Administrator privileges. I use this frequently when I need to run Visual Studio 2010 with Administrator privileges, but it will work with any program. Now I just need someone to write a VS2010 Extension to relaunch VS2010 with Administrative privileges for the same Solution file. Maybe I have a new project on my hands... Rob ...
