Burp is a great tool to use REST API directly in the GUI. I have written this blog to understand how to configure Burp to Manage Windows Azure subscription and services using REST API. You can download the tool below: http://portswigger.net/burp/proxy...(read more
Literacy Imagine a world in which very few people knew how to read or write. You kept to certain parts of town because you couldn't read a map or a street sign. When you needed to sign a contract, you just asked what it said and had to take it on faith. A lot of your experience was based on legend and rumor. Books, and the information in them, was mystical. Sometimes you suspected they were being used against you, but you never really knew. There was definitely plenty of work around, but some high end jobs weren't
remotely possible - not just clerical work, but professions that required a lot of information management, like the medical and legal professions. Please don't tell me not to learn to code Over this past year, there have been commentary back and forth on whether everyone should learn to code. A few free, interactive sites like Codecademy
popped up which made it easy to start learning some basic coding. I was a big fan - I helped my eleven year old daughter go through it, and we both agreed it was great. More on that later. Then...(Read whole news on source site)

Today’s focus is going to be on message handlers (or, to be precise, DelegatingHandlers) in ASP.NET Web API. If you are familiar with WCF you can surely recall them – used to be called DelegatingChannels at some point – but … Continue reading →
Be thoughtful about transaction size. As we go forward we’re going to make sure we include careful consideration about transaction size in any of our database upgrade scripts. Our current default authoring mechanism groups all upgrade steps into a single transaction. In the future, we’ll require developers be explicit about how upgrade steps are grouped.
New insights on upgrade testing. This one is more complicated that you might imagine. There’s a saying “There’s no place like production.” It means that no matter how hard you try, you’ll never be able to fully simulate your production environment – things will still
go wrong. There’s diminishing returns on your effort to simulate production with increasing fidelity. However, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t do anything. Some insight into our 4/26 deployment - bharry's WebLog - Site Home - MSDN Blogs
We did a TFSPreview.com deployment on 4/26 and you may have noticed that we suffered a few hours of down time. It’s the first upgrade we’ve had go really bad in a long time – the last several have suffered little or no down time. I wanted to share a little bit about what happened and what we learned...(Read whole news on source site)
As we are now approaching the end of another fiscal year here at Microsoft (I know, hard to believe, isn’t it?!?), I am once again coming to you, the community that I have the sincere pleasure of interacting with each and every day in my current role as Director of Partner Experience here at Microsoft, to give you the open opportunity to rate and review my performance. Some of you I have worked with for many years and you have been through this before and some of you may be brand new blog readers, Twitter followers, etc. Regardless of
how long we have been interacting, one thing you hopefully have seen from me is that I am very open about my goal to help increase the satisfaction of Microsoft partners around the world in working with Microsoft through things like: helping provide information of value and interest, providing correct answers to questions (even when they may not be the popular answers), helping address concerns and opportunities, directing you to relevant and important information, providing avenues for input into and out of Microsoft, connection opportunities with Microsoft, and much, much more. (In fact, I have this openly stated on
I got a request from a friend to mention a new conference that’s coming up this fall in August in Wisconsin. It looks like a good opportunity to stay up to date on the latest technologies and rub elbows with your peers. Check it out if you are interested. http://www.thatconference.com/
From my perspective, .NET is already the richest and most productive way for developers to create server-side applications that run in the cloud and on premise, and to
do so with symmetry across both. With .NET 4 available today on Windows Server and in Windows Azure, developers have in place the languages, libraries, frameworks, and capabilities necessary to create next-generation solutions, whether for the enterprise or for a consumer application.
And things only get better with .NET 4.5. The coming release of .NET is targeted to provide great capabilities for developers working on mobile apps, web apps, and cloud services, while at the same time enabling rapid scalability, fast time to market, and support that spans a gamut of PCs, browsers, and mobile devices. Work in .NET 4.5 has...(Read whole news on source site)
