Sometime ago, say around mid April, 2011 I posted about Installing SharePoint 2010 on Windows 7 by going in a different path than using the standalone installation. This post is about what happens after the installation and initial configuration of your Windows 7 “development farm” gets the bits, and goes through the Central Admin and management perspective to get you to the first screen that says “Hi, SharePoint here, would you like to play a game of chess” (yeah, it does not really say that, but ...
· For the last decade, the majority of my dev work has leveraged the .NET Framework for construction of information systems. However, my interest has lain in numerical computing. · Is it possible to have an increasingly higher level of abstraction and at the same time achieve underlying high performance computing? The prevailing winds say no: C# is aimed at productivity, and C++ is for performance. Garbage collection was great, but do we still need it with the availability of smart pointers? Would ...
We have gone through several iterations of the Windows Azure Platform Training Kit in the past, and while it was not a complex process to get up and running for me, well that was not the story for many. I had the chance of participating in a Windows Azure Bootcamp, and while the attendees were aware of the requirements on the systems, well it was not as easy to get going. You can get the October refresh here: http://www.microsoft.com/do... I believe that is the reason for ...
Once the installer for the AdventureWorks Community Sample Database has finished, we then need to complete the process (not mandatory, but nice to do to play with the OLAP content). The first thing we need to do is make sure we note the location of the script files and samples. The path if you are working with SQL Server 2008 R2 is as follows: “C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\100\Tools\Samples\Ad... 2008R2 Analysis Services Project\enterprise” I am working with the developer edition, ...
For a while now, if we have been around SQL Server we got used to the different sample databases that were provided. From Pubs to Northwind to AdventureWorks. In order to get the AdventureWorks samples we need to go to CodePlex and download the one that corresponds to the version of SQL Server we are working with. The link to the download site here : http://msftdbprodsamples.co... Now, on to the installation. Once you download the appropriate file, double click and launch ...
DropBox changed some details in the API and upgrade to version 1.0 a couple days ago. Together with the DropBox team it was possible to be the first open source project which is compatible with the new and more saver API version. The SharpBox 1.2 release brings the changes we made together into an official binary distribution. We decided to do a major release because of some breaking changes in the code. The most important change will be that the class ICloudStoragCredentials does not more exists. ...
Level: Beginner In working with the Silverlight 4 DataGrid control, I found that documentation and online examples tend to focus on validation either at the cell level, or row level. However, there could be a case where validation is required after all rows have been entered, and comparisons between rows may need to be made. One example I can think of is the case where a list of products, including SKU information, is entered by the user. The SKU code is not derived automatically, but must be unique ...

Carlos Chávez: Exacto Soluciones HABLEMOS DE SISTEMAS EMBEBIDOS Los sistemas embebidos no son extensamente conocidos por el público, pero son usados a diario por las personas. Las PCs de uso general, laptops, servidores, Smart Phones son equipos sobre los cuales se corre y ejecutan una multitud de juegos, software, multimedia, etc. Y no necesariamente son sistemas embebidos, pero si se analiza el hardware, este si puede ser y frecuentemente se usa como base para crear un sistema embebido de uso dedicado. ...
Motivation During programming suddenly this error (“Failure has occurred while loading a type”) was thrown by accessing a artifact of a referenced library. In such cases I take the assembly fusion logger fuslogvw to search for problems of loading assemblies. Sometimes an old version from a not expected folder is binded. But all bindings were correct. Problem After several hour I got the right hint. Because the assembly is a COM+ one, there are some registration things in die background – and I don’t ...

The much ballyhooed release of Nokia’s first Windows Phone handsets finally took place Wednesday at the Nokia World event in London. There had been a lot of anticipation building up to this “reveal,” and it is genuinely a watershed moment for the Windows Phone platform. That’s because Nokia’s adoption of Windows Phone brings several firsts: For the first time, a major mobile phone player has standardized on Windows Phone as its exclusive smartphone platform. For the first time (apparently) an OEM ...
If you are active on Facebook, there is very less chance that you missed on the recent Facebook UI update “Social Graph” or more popularly referred as “Timeline” (a screenshot of how the Timeline profile UI looks, here below) This Timeline UI has been quite popular and is supported in most of the modern browsers including IE9, Chrome 14 & Firefox 6 and above. I am a power consumer of web and use IE9 as my primary browser. Timeline UI works excellent in IE9. I have also downloaded the IE10 Platform ...
I am playing more with the Windows Developer Preview and simply love the backward compatibility it has for applications that used to work in Windows 7. And one of the applications critical to my day-to-day life is Visual Studio. Visual Studio 2010 with SP1 and ASP.NET MVC 3 Tools is my everyday requirement. Windows Developer Preview when installed from the MSDN Center has two flavors. One with the Developer Tools which I would assume, most of us developers would want and the other one, which is simply ...
If you, like me, have ever looked over the MSDN documentation and though how nice it would be to have that type of documentation for your codebase, SandCastle is the tool you’ve been looking for. SandCastle is a Codeplex project initiated by Microsoft in order to provide MSDN-esque documentation for .NET projects or asssemblies. The documentation can come in several formats such as CHM files or a website. GhostDoc and SandCastle Help File Builder To get started with SandCastle for documentation, ...

Coming from SPC a couple of weeks ago, during the keynote there was a demo on some great Visio Diagrams. It was created using the following: http://visiospfarmaddin.cod... Expect a post here in the next week or so on how to configure it. Another great tool I came across is targeted to those who are becoming familiar with PowerShell for SharePoint, and also if you want to use PowerShell with SharePoint Online. It is a Command Builder, you pick the verbs and nouns as you would regularly do with ...
DropkicK (DK) has been in development for over two years and has been used for production deployments for over a year. Dru Sellers originally posted about DK back in 2009. While DK isn’t yet as super easy to grok as some of the other ChuckNorrisFramework tools and offers little in the idea of conventions, it is still a stellar framework to use for deployments. DK works well in environments where you know all of the environments you will deploy to ahead of time (although not required due to the ability ...
74 Developers, 13 Charities helped, 0 slices of pizza served. GiveCamp is a national organization to help people organize development events for charity. Dallas GiveCamp is one of those events where Developers give back by building websites or solutions for charity. This years Dallas GiveCamp was held at CTRECH Hilton. With classrooms and whiteboards available to each charity group individually, we had the most hours worked on site that I have seen in past years. Many people where here all night ...
“Because everyone wants to kick their database, but sometimes kicking your database is a good thing!” Many would not argue that you should version your code, and few would argue against versioning your code in a way that can lead back to a specific point in source control history. However, most people don’t really think of doing the same thing with your database. That’s where RoundhousE (RH) comes in. I have been working on RH for over two years now and people always wander what it is, why and what ...
Recently I looked at a performance problem when transferring image data from a custom HttpListener to web browser clients. In the end it came down to one change I had done which was writing the image data to a memory stream first – this was required so I could add the right content-length header to the output based on the actual image size which some of my clients required. Before this change I had directly written the image to the output stream when it was generated but the modified code looked ...
NuGet is a topic that I have been hearing about for a while, especially from Clark Sell. I figured it was about time to take a dive into it and see what it was all about. The description of NuGet makes it seem like magic to add dependencies to your code projects. Of course there is always an explanation for how the trick works. In this case it is by using a package and a definition of how resources should be added to your project. One of the interesting aspects of using NuGet is the UI. The fact ...
In the closing keynote at TechEd Africa 2011, Clifford de Wit (Microsoft South Africa) made improvements on his previous years attempt to geekily give away a prize, but unfortunately still got it wrong… here’s why. At Teched 2010 Clifford gave away an amazing prize of a wheel barrow full of tech goodies – if my memory serves me right, it included a laptop, xbox, kinect as well as a whole bunch of other fun stuff – a geeks delight. Unfortunately he was given some flack on how he decided to pick the ...

You must have heard about it. Windows 8 will all about Metro. Sure, you can run ‘old-school’ applications on the platform, but most attention these days is about the new user interface. The UI is based on the design language Metro, a design philosophy we first saw in Windows Phone. Nowadays you see more and more of Metro. The Microsoft website is loosely based on it, the Zune mediaplayer uses it and so on. So it wasn’t a surprise to see that Windows 8 is all about Metro. In this screenshot you see ...
Today the Microsoft announced that the In-Place Upgrade feature had had some improvements. The major one would be, now the user could be able to change the VM Size by In-Place Upgrade, without redeploying the whole service. What We Did Before Before this improvement, since the VM Size was defined in the CSDEF file, we have to redeploy the service to change the VM Size property. This means we would remove the existing roles and VMs and then ask the Windows Azure to reallocate the new VMs with the ...
I have been developing an MVC3 application with the intention of deploying to the Cloud. It was configured to use Forms Authentication with SQL Membership on SQL Azure. Everything seemed to be working perfectly locally, but after I deployed the Membership.ValidateUser no longer seemed to work. I could use the Providers to get information from the database (e.g. Membership.GetUser would return an existing account) which meant the database connection was fine and user existed, just the validation failed. ...

Everyone, Thursday, all day there is an MSDN webcast on building Windows Phone 7.5 apps. If you haven’t tried your hand at developing for the WP platform, I highly recommend watching this either live, or when they become available as individual streaming downloads. You may not own a Windows Phone, and that’s cool and all, but being a .NET developer puts you in a great spot to make applications or games that can reach millions. The great part is, if you don’t have a phone, YOU DON’T NEED ONE to write ...

When using the storage client library to access Azure Storage, it is recommended that we make use of the Async calls to execute queries against the Azure Tables/Blobs.

Hadoop is the open source implementation of Google’s proprietary MapReduce parallel computation engine and environment, and it's used (quite widely ...
We’ve all been inundated with images from the various Occupy Wallstreet demonstrations that have been occurring throughout the United States. Hordes of people frustrated with how their country’s financial systems have imploded due to corporate greed. I’m not American, so really I can’t comment on the situation – its an internal family issue that’s really none of my business. After all, Canada’s economy weathered the global recession very well and we avoided the disaster that befell other countries. ...
