A safe and Happy 4th of July to you all

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
As we prepare for Worldwide Partner Conference next week, our biggest meeting of the year (and my favorite meeting of the year), I just wanted to send off best wishes to all of our U.S. based partners who are celebrating the 4th of July holiday today (and anyone else celebrating). We all get crazy-busy throughout the year, so on days like this where we are stepping away from the business to spend with our families and friends, I hope you all enjoy your time away. Also, let’s be sure to protect those eyes, fingers, and anything else you may put
in jeopardy with any of a multitude of exploding fireworks you may be celebrating with today. While I’m sure it would make for quite the entertaining story at WPC next week, I think we’d both agree that we’d rather spend our time discussing happier topics. Happy 4th of July, everyone, and looking forward to seeing so many of you next week! Did you find this information helpful? If so, you may want to make sure you are utilizing all of the areas I share information online, such as: ...(Read whole news on source site)

Mvc Controls Toolkit Support to Mvc4 WebApi 3: Retrieval Manager and other New Nice Features

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
Mvc Controls Toolkit Support to Mvc4 WebApi Mvc Controls Toolkit Support to Mvc4 WebApi 2: Handling Relations In my previous posts about the Mvc4 WebApi support I described how the jQueryable and updatesManager Javascript classes may help us in all tasks related respectively with the retrieval of data from the server, and their updates. The jQueryable helps us in building the query to send to an Api Controller or to any oData source, either with a fluent LinQ like interface or by extracting the query information from the Mvc Controls Toolkit filtering, sorting, and paging controls.
However, it doesn’t handle all aspects of the ClientViewModel update once we receive the data from the server. Moreover, there is also some query building job to be done “manually”. In the 2.2 release of the Mvc Controls Toolkit we factored out all this “manual” jobs into the new mvcct.retrievalManager javascript class. Now all we need to do is just intercepting all events triggered by the Mvc Controls Toolkit filtering, sorting, and paging controls, and passing their data to the event method of the mvcct.retrievalManager instance we have created:

Windows Phone 8 May Be The Most Developer Friendly Phone On The Market

source: Apps are where it's at in today's economy. If you can make a great app, you are guaranteed a steady income and the benefit of working for yourself. Having an easy-to-use development ecosystem makes all the difference in attracting people to your device, hence why Apple is able to get so many exclusive apps on iOS. Microsoft is hoping to emulate that success with Windows Phone 8. Microsoft is obviously proud of the work they've done with Windows Phone 8 and they want to let developers know that they have not left them out.
In a recent blog post, the Windows Phone 8 team details all the features that they feel should make developers want to make apps for Windows Phone. The biggest and best part about Windows Phone 8 is the shared core. That means that the OS running on Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8 is nearly identical. It makes it super easy to develop an app for one platform and then port it to the others. Granted, Windows Phone 8 apps are meant to be ported to tablets and vice versa. I don't know if there's much of...(Read whole news on source site)

RavenDB and complex tagging

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
In the RavenDB mailing list, we got a question about tagging. In this case, the application need: 1. Tags have identity  ("set" has a different meaning if I'm talking math, music or sports). 2. I want to know who tagged what and when. 2. I want to do this once, as a service, so i don’t need have ids in each document i want to tag. In my app, there are many such document types. Let us see how we can approach this in RavenDB. We are going to do it like so: Note that because
tags have identity, we store only the tag id inside the tagged object, along with the required information about who & when it was tagged. Now, let us try to have some fun with this. Let us say that I want to be able to show, given a specific album, all the albums that have any of the same tags as the specified album. We start by defining the following index: Note that the naming convention matches what we would expect using the default Linq convention, so we can easily query this index using Linq. And now we...(Read whole news on source site)
