If you’re going to write comments then you might as well avoid embarrassing yourself.
Peter shares a great tool that not only makes your application run faster but gives you insight into other potential problems.
Laurent Bugnion, a Senior Cloud Developer Advocate for Microsoft who downloaded his first Web site on Mosaic in 1993, takes you on a trip through time to review software developments during the 25-year span of the Visual Studio Live! .NET training and networking conferences.
The Visual Studio Engineering Team is moving off the UserVoice site previously used to collect developer feedback about the IDE in favor of a new "Suggest a Feature" mechanism on the Developer Community site.
One of the latest Microsoft creations to be taken open source is a cutting-edge project in the booming artificial intelligence space.
In a Visual Studio Live! conference keynote Tuesday a couple of Microsoft program managers discussed .NET today and tomorrow, clearly signaling that .NET Core is the future of the ecosystem and that programmers should use it for all new development projects.
The Blazor documentation doesn't say you can't do this and it does actually work. But, still, you'd probably be foolish to take advantage of it.
If, in your "need for speed," you're looking to access and update your data as fast as possible, you can get to that goal by combining memory-optimized tables with compiled procs.
If screaming speed in data access is the most important thing in your life, SQL Server's durable in-memory, memory-optimized tables are your answer. They were good in SQL Server 2014 and they're even better in SQL Server 2016, 2017 and Azure.
You have a bunch of options for debugging Android applications built with Xamarin. Unfortunately, only one of them has worked well for Peter in all scenarios. Here are all your options with Peter's opinion on each and a recommendation on the best one.
Microsoft announced the third preview of Visual Studio 2017 v15.9, improving Xamarin and TypeScript functionality along with a bevy of other improvements.
You've got a class that accepts an object from a client (perhaps, that class is an ASP.NET MVC Controller). Here's the simplest way to update the related Entity Framework object with the client's data before saving it to your database.
Peter thinks he's a bad person for even mentioning this tip. But, he claims, sometimes your best option in testing is to look at the internal state of the code under test. PrivateObject and PrivateType will let you do that.
