AddThis Social Bookmark Button
Today we released the Visual Studio Tools for Unity add-on (formerly known as UnityVS). It is now available for download on the Visual Studio Gallery at the following links: Visual Studio 2010 Tools for Unity Visual Studio 2012 Tools for Unity Visual Studio 2013 Tools for Unity VSTU is Microsoft’s free Visual Studio add-on that enables a rich programming and debugging experience for working with the Unity gaming tools and platform. This is our first release since the acquisition of SyntaxTree, and we’re excited to have the opportunity to reach to the Unity community with Visual Studio. Here are
the highlights in today’s 1.9 release: Faster debugger. Attaching and detaching the debugger as well as expanding local variables is now faster. Faster startup. Opening VSTU projects is now faster. Better handling of C# constructs. The local variables window is now properly populated when debugging iterators or when variables are accessed inside closures. Start your game and your debugging session in one click. This feature is one of our most-requested: you can now attach the debugger and start the game by simply changing the debug target. This is only available in Visual Studio 2012 and 2013. And many more new features and bug fixes as...(Read whole news on source site)

Web Forms is not Dead!

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
It seems like everywhere you read, everyone is talking about using ASP.NET MVC to create mobile web applications. But what about programmers still working in ASP.NET Web Forms? We want our projects done using the latest techniques, we want to build mobile web apps, and we want to use jQuery and bootstrap too. Not to fear, Web Forms is not dead, and nearly everything you can do in MVC, you can also do in Web Forms. I am creating a whole series of videos on how to use all the latest techniques in Web Forms to build modern web applications.
This series of videos will be available in the summer of 2014 on MVC vs Web Forms Many programmers feel they have to choose one technology over another. But, there is really no reason you can’t program in both MVC and Web Forms and use each for what they are good at.. Many MVC programmers give many reasons why you should use MVC as opposed to Web Forms. The reasons I hear more often are: 1.    Fine control over the HTML generated 2.    Ability to unit test 3.    Can control the “id” attribute generated 4.    Easier to use jQuery and...(Read whole news on source site)

Angular Style Guide

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
I just published the first draft of my opinionated style guide for syntax, conventions, and structuring AngularJS applications. You’ll find many of these and more explained in deeper detail in my Pluralsight course AngularJS: Clean Code (coming in August 2014). The styles contained here are based on on my experience with AngularJS, presentations, Pluralsight training courses and working in teams. I will keep this guide updated on github. Usage and Purpose I get asked a lot for style guides, how to get started once you learn the AngularJS basics, and what I recommend. This guide helps point in that direction

Using FiddlerCore to capture HTTP Requests with .NET

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
Over the last few weeks I’ve been working on my Web load testing utility West Wind WebSurge. One of the key components of a load testing tool is the ability to capture URLs effectively so that you can play them back later under load. One of the options in WebSurge for capturing URLs is to use its built-in capture tool which acts as an HTTP proxy to capture any HTTP and HTTPS traffic from most Windows HTTP clients, including Web Browsers as well as standalone Windows applications and services. To make this happen, I used Eric Lawrence’s
awesome FiddlerCore library, which provides most of the functionality of his desktop Fiddler application, all rolled into an easy to use library that you can plug into your own applications. FiddlerCore makes it almost too easy to capture HTTP content! For WebSurge I needed to capture all HTTP traffic in order to capture the full HTTP request – URL, headers and any content posted by the client. The result of what I ended up creating is this semi-generic capture form: In this post I’m going to demonstrate how easy it is to...(Read whole news on source site)

Metrics hunt in RavenDB

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
You might have noticed that we are paying a lot of options for operational concerns in RavenDB 3.0. This is especially true because we moved away from performance counters to, which means that is is much easier and light weight to add metrics to RavenDB. As a result of that, we are adding a lot of stuff that will be very useful for ops team. From monitoring the duration of queries to the bandwidth available for replication to a host of other stuff. What I wanted to ask is what kind of things do you want
