Tomorrow (Thursday, 4/5/2012) at noon ET (9am PT) we have our fourth screencast in the @home series: Debugging and Troubleshooting in the Cloud! During the first week of March 2012, my teammates Brian Hitney, Jim O’Neil, and I announced the re-launch of the @home with Windows Azure project. On March 15, we hosted a kick-off webcast providing an overview of the project. This is the fourth in a series of five where we’ll dive into various aspects of Windows Azure.  In this fourth webcast, we’ll explore how you can debug, troubleshoot, and monitor your applications in Windows
Azure.  From the abstract page: In this fourth webcast episode, we talk about debugging your application. We look at debugging locally and how the emulator works for local development, and we talk about configuring diagnostic data to capture logs and performance counters. For the especially tricky troubleshooting issues, we discuss IntelliTrace, an advanced debugging tool, to gather more information about your application—essentially building a timeline of events that can be examined to quickly find the root of a problem. We also look at remote desktop options for troubleshooting. WATCH THE WEBCAST at 12:00pm EDT 4/5/2012 If you can’t make this one,...(Read whole news on source site)

Using T4 templates with the NHibernate Designer

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
The NHibernate Designer is a great way to design data models for use with the NHibernate object-relational mapper. But once you’ve captured your data model, you may be interested in generating other code from it — anything from data transfer objects (DTOs) right through to scaffolding for a simple admin site. In some cases you [...]

File I/O in Node

The fs module provides both synchronous and asynchronous ways of reading files. The readFile method reads the contents of the file asynchronously.
fs = require('fs');
fs.readFile(file, [encoding], [callback]);

where file is the name of the file to read, encoding is an optional parameter that specifies the type of encoding to read the file. Possible encodings are 'ascii', 'utf8', and 'base64'. If no encoding is provided, the default is utf8.callback is a function to call when the file has been read and the contents are ready - it is passed two arguments, error and data. If there is no error, error will be null and data will contain the file contents;
otherwise err contains the error message.
Similarly the writeFile method writes content to a file specified in the function. Read more

Rx - Join

Rx - Join this post is an advance one so you haven't yet master the Rx basic practice you might want to start in here. the post will focus on the Join and GroupJoin operators and we will try to get a solid understanding of what does it really means to join multiple data streams. the Rx notion of join is quit different than the join we has used to know in SQL queries. while the SQL query's join refer to data equality (relationship and foreign keys), the Rx's join is all about
coexisting. actually Rx is much closer to the real life notion of join.
when you meeting someone (online or in the real world) its actually mean that both of you are doing the activity at the same time. so speaking of Rx Join, you must do that conceptual switching from data into coexistence. because Rx's join is all about coexistence the actual data type doesn't matter any more.
you can declare a join between unrelated data type, because the data type has nothing to do with the...(Read whole news on source site)
