How many people are using Feature X? Of those, how many are trying to do the action reported as broken?Of those, can we correlate them to crashes in the app, or exceptions created in the code?Are there correlations between those crashes or exceptions and
service dependencies, load spikes, or other environmental concerns (e.g.
memory, disk space, etc.)?Is there a correlation to a certain time of day or day of the week?Does the error only occur for
certain accounts? Or certain geographies? Or languages?Answers to questions like these enable you to make informed decisions about prioritization....(Read whole news on source site)

101 Proven Practices for Focus

“Lack of direction, not lack of time, is the problem. We all have twenty-four hour days.” -- Zig Ziglar Here is my collection of 101 Proven Practices for Focus.   It still needs work to improve it, but I wanted to shared it, as is, because focus is one of the most important skills we can develop for work and life. Focus is the backbone of personal effectiveness, personal development, productivity, time management, leadership skills, and just about anything that matters.   Focus is a key ingredient to helping us achieve the things
we set out to do, and to learn the things we need to learn. Without focus, we can’t achieve great results. I have a very healthy respect for the power of focus to amplify impact, to create amazing breakthroughs, and to make things happen. The Power of Focus Long ago one of my most impactful mentors said that focus is what separates the best from the rest.  In all of his experience, what exceptional people had, that others did not, was focus. Here are a few relevant definitions of focus:

ASP.NET Web Forms Extensibility: Control Builders

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
One of the most often ignored extensibility point in Web Forms is the Control Builder. Control Builders are subclasses of ControlBuilder that can be specified per control (including User Controls) or page class. It controls some aspects of a control instance:
Whether or not it allows blank spaces inside its declaration (AllowWhitespaceLiterals);
If a closing tag is required (HasBody);
What is the type of its markup-declared child controls (GetChildControlType);
If the control supports code blocks (HasAspCode);
The type of the control’s binding container (BindingContainerType) and item (ItemType) (ASP.NET 4.5 only);
align="justify">It also allows overriding a couple of things:
The parameters specified in the markup (Init);
What to do when the control builder is added to a parent control builder (OnAppendToParentBuilder);
Modify the code that will be generated in the code-behind class that is produced by ASP.NET or the code that will be used to instantiate the control (ProcessGeneratedCode);
Change the tag’s inner textual content (SetTagInnerText);
This is a powerful mechanism, which has even been used to allow generic control classes. I won’t go into many details, but instead I will focus on the

Improving HTML Accessibility with Visual Studio Extensions

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
As a step on the path of enabling software for all audiences and abilities, we’re happy to share a new Visual Studio extension that leverages Tenon’s HTML accessibility checker service. With this extension, we’ve made it easier for developers to detect and resolve common HTML-based user interface accessibility issues. Unlike some other web-based accessibility checking services, Tenon’s service has a public API and is designed to be integrated with extensible tools like Visual Studio. We’d love for you to try it out by installing the extension Tenon HTML Accessibility Checker from the Visual Studio Gallery or from within
Visual Studio. (Note: We will publish the source code for the extension on GitHub in about a month so that you can improve upon or evolve the extension to support other accessibility checker services.) Now, let’s go over this new extension in a little more detail. Adding the Tenon HTML Accessibility Checker to Visual Studio To get started, open a supported version of Visual Studio such as VS 2013, 2015 Preview or the free Visual Studio Community. Select the Tools menu, and then the Extensions and Updates option. Search for “accessibility” and select Install the Tenon HTML Accessibility Checker. Restart Visual Studio when...(Read whole news on source site)
