Reddish-Greenish-Refactor - O'Reilly Radar

The standard three-step cycle goes like this. After choosing a small
improvement, which can be either a feature or a bug fix, you add a
failing test which shows that the improvement is missing (“Red”); add
production code to make the test pass (“Green”); and clean up the
production code while making sure the tests still pass (“Refactor”). 

#1,121 – Localization II – Assigning UIDs to All Localizable Elements

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
After adding a UICulture tag, the next step in localizing a WPF is to assign a UID (unique identifier) to each element in each of your XAML files.  These UIDs will later be used to localize/translate the XAML. To start, press the Windows key, type Visual Studio, and click on the Visual Studio Tools icon. Double-click the Developer Command Prompt for […]

RavenDB Replication Topology Visualizer

Even more goodies are coming in RavenDB 3.0. Below you can see how to visualize the replication topology in a RavenDB Cluster. You can also see that the t5 database is down (marked as red). This is important, since this gives us the ability to check the status of the topology from the point of view of the actual nodes. So a node might be up for one server, but not for the other, and this will show up here. Beside, it is a cool graphic that you can use in your system documentation and it is much
easier to explain ....(Read whole news on source site)

Node.js Tools for Visual Studio 1.0 Beta 2 Available

Today we released the Node.js Tools for Visual Studio 1.0 Beta 2 which is now available for download. NTVS is Microsoft’s free Visual Studio add-on that enables a rich experience for working with Node.js apps, giving developers the power of the Visual Studio code editor including support for IntelliSense, the Visual Studio debugger, and for running Node.js apps on Microsoft Azure Web Sites or Cloud Services. Here are the highlights in today’s release: New analysis and IntelliSense engine. We created a new IntelliSense engine which is capable of analyzing much larger code bases. Once processed the results of the analysis
are cached and reused in subsequent sessions which leads to much better performance compared to our previous release. The new engine is also configurable so you can change how aggressively it works or completely turn it off using the Tools option menu (Tools > Options > Text Editor > Node.js >IntelliSense). Improved NPM UI. We updated the NPM management UI so it is easier to use. We’ve also added integrated support for invoking NPM inside of the REPL window with a new .npm command. Mocha unit test support. We expanded unit test support to include using tests written with Mocha...(Read whole news on source site)

Hadoop is the foundation of enterprise big data solutions. However,
it’s one component.  It’s not the complete solution. A complete solution
requires databases, message brokers, stream processors and more. The
flow of data starts at the client and it ends with Apache Hadoop.
However, data flows through multiple systems before it ends with Apache
Hadoop. The key to a real-time big data solution is architecture. It has
fill the big data/fast data gap. It has to meet both operational and
analytical requirements.  This requires integrating multiple systems to
enable a flow of data.

In this class, we will discuss real-time big data architecture by
evaluating the architecture of enterprise production deployments. These
industry solutions range from messaging to finance to advertising. In
addition, we will highlight several components of real-time big data
solutions, including Apache Hadoop, Apache Storm, Apache Sqoop, Apache
Kafka and Couchbase Server.

Finally, we will examine the requirements for...(Read whole news on source site)
