On March 15th, the Microsoft Store announced they are opening new stores in New Jersey!  The two newest stores will be in Freehold, NJ at the Freehold Raceway Mall and in Bridgewater, NJ at the Bridgewater Commons Mall. You can read the news in the Jersey Shore’s paper of record: The Asbury Park Press I was at the Freehold Raceway Mall this past weekend, and the temporary store front looks great! For anyone that uses Microsoft products (pretty much MOST folks!), it will be great to have these new stores in the area finally!  If you haven’t heard about the
Microsoft Store, learn more by visiting their website.  The Microsoft Store makes it easy to buy software from Microsoft and Microsoft partners in an environment where the folks know what they’re talking about.  If Aunt Betty needs a new copy of Office for her PC, she can hop over to the mall and pick one up while shopping.  Want to check out the XBox Kinect in action and get the latest video game accessories?  Considering the hot new Nokia Lumia 900 Windows Phone that just came out this week?  These will all be things you can do at...(Read whole news on source site)

Code Mastery Boston

Last year Magenic held a series of free one-day technical training events in cities around the US. These events were popular and successful, so we’re doing it again this year. I am pleased to announce that our first event is Code Mastery Boston on May 2 – so coming up soon! These are FREE events, open to anyone wanting to get in-depth technical information. In Boston we have two tracks: .NET software development, and SQL Server/Business Intelligence. I am delivering the keynote
speech at the event, where I’ll be talking about the state of the Microsoft development platform and overall ecosystem. We are at an exciting point in the history of Microsoft, where yet again they are an underdog forced to innovate to overcome tough competition in the form of the iPhone/iPad devices, while also dealing with the commoditization of client computing, the emergence of HTML 5 as a real development platform, and the potential of cloud computing. Our breakout sessions cover web, cloud, service, and Windows 8 software development, and SQL Server 2012, data warehousing, and business intelligence. ...(Read whole news on source site)

What’s New in Test Studio Test Automation Tools | Telerik:

One of the scariest scenarios facing any company is the prospect of their website going down or having its performance degraded to a point where customers form lasting negative impressions. And yet, companies looking for load and performance testing solutions always face astronomical prices and rocket science complexity. We are very happy to announce that those days are over. With the addition of Load Testing
 PhD at home; the same home you didn't have to sale in order to afford a load testing solution.

"How many concurrent users can my site run with before failing?" and "What's a user's experience on my site when there are many other users hitting it at the same time?" are two critical questions stakeholders for website projects need answers to.

Scaling out a website's performance under load is a complex set of steps which impact an application in every aspect: hardware, database design, software architecture, and of course coding implementation. Test Studio's new Load Test functionality helps teams quickly and effectively gather the right information to answer those questions. We've taken a...(Read whole news on source site)
