Remote debugging Visual Studio 2013

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
The first step is of course install the remote debugging tools on the debug host When I fire up the Visual Studio Remote Debugging Monitor (latest version 12.0.30501.0), it says that it is already running on port 4018 so I have selected a different port. I selected 4019 and went to the “Tools” menu and then “Options (Ctrl + o) I have selected 'No authentication' and check 'allow any user to debug'.  All there is left to do, is press play on the Visual studio side and make sure that you have the same port and no-auth set. The
other option is not to go to options but go to permissions (Ctrl + p) and add my Live ID/ Microsoft account from my developing machine, but that takes more clicks and my debugging device also forgets these settings. So you have to set it at every launch. Since I am also the admin of this tiny LAN, there is no security risk here and I can go with option 1. I am able to remotely debug, it's just that I have to setup the debugging every time on the client side (Lenovo Miix 2 8" tablet running win8.1) The development...(Read whole news on source site)

What is new in RavenDB 3.0: Operations–the pretty pictures tour

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
This has been the most important change in RavenDB 3.0, in my opinion. Not because of complexity and scope, pretty much everything here is much simpler than other features than we have done. But this is important because it makes RavenDB much easier to operate. Since the get go, we have tried to make sure that RavenDB would be a low friction system. We usually focused on the developer experience, and that showed when we had to deal with operational issues. Things were more complex than they should. Now, to be fair, we had the appropriate facilities to figure things out,
ranging from debug endpoints, to performance counters to a great debug log story. The problem is that in my eye, we were merely on par with other systems. RavenDB wasn’t created to be on par, RavenDB was created so when you use this, you would sigh and say “that is how it should be done”. With RavenDB 3.0, I think we are much closer to that. Because we have done so much work here, I’m going to split things to multiple posts. This one is the one with all the pretty pictures, as you can imagine. Next one will talk about...(Read whole news on source site)

Creating an interactive chart with D3

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
Recently I've been looking at various D3 components, which has been a fun project. I haven't yet had the chance to develop an interactive, dynamic component though, which has meant that the resulting charts have been sadly static. For this article I wanted to use what I've learned to build a fully interactive chart - something that wouldn't look out of place on a financial app.

How I spent $75,000 during a budget freeze

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
It was 2008 - a bad year for a lot of companies. The company for which I worked was no exception and we were hit with a budget freeze. No one was allowed to buy anything. A few months in to the budget freeze, though, I got the CIO and CEO to sign off on my purchase order of $75,000 for a virtualization environment.

What is new in RavenDB 3.0: SQL Replication

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
SQL Replication has been a part of RavenDB for quite some time,showing up for the first time in the 1.0 build as the Index Replication Bundle. This turned out to be a very useful feature, and in 3.0 we had a dedicated developer for this for several weeks, banging it into new and interesting shapes. We started out with a proper design for how you want to use it. And I’m just going to take you through the process for a bit, then talk about the backend changes. We start by defining a named connection string (note that you can actually
test this immediately): And then we define the actual replication behavior: Note that we have the Tools control in the top? Clicking it and selecting Simulate will give you: So you can actually see the commands that we are going to execute to replicate a specific document. That is going to save a lot of head scratching about “why isn’t this replicating properly”. You can even run this simulation against your source db, to check for errors such as constraint violations, etc. The SQL Replication bundle now support forcing query recompilation, which avoid bad query plans caching in SQL Server: And for...(Read whole news on source site)
