Moving to the .NET Blog Like a number of other teams that write libraries for the .NET Framework, we have decided to join the list of bloggers that post to the .NET Framework blog. This provides a central location where you can keep up to date with all the .NET related news from Microsoft. We have an Entity Framework tag that we will use whenever we post, so you can always filter posts to just those about EF.

Passive Income with Teleseminars

“Be steady and well-ordered in your life so that you can be fierce and original in your work.”  -- Gustave Flaubert Whether you want to supplement your income, recession-proof yourself for the future, or simply share your expertise with the world, you need to use the right passive income strategies, so that it’s sustainable. I know a lot of developers figuring out how to share their expertise and make passive income in a mobile-first, cloud-first world.  Some are creating passive income by selling software services, some are selling online courses, some are selling books, and some are building
digital products.    It’s how they are sharing and scaling their expertise with the world, while doing what they love.  In each case, the underlying pattern is the same: "Write once, share many."  It’s how you scale.  It’s how you amplify your impact.  It’s how you create passive income.  (Otherwise, it wouldn’t be very passive With our mobile-first, cloud-first world, and so much technology at your fingertips to help with automation, it’s never been a better time to start.    But the challenge is, how do you actually start? I've researched and tested a...(Read whole news on source site)

News from Connect(); 2015

Today is our annual Fall developer Connect(); event in New York.  I’m here talking about a ton of new stuff that we’re doing to help developers adopt agile DevOps practices.  Normally I would write a detailed post with screenshots and descriptions highlighting the news.  However, this time, I’m going to take a different approach.  There’s so much stuff to talk about that I can’t write that post – I’d spend days on it and you wouldn’t want to read it :)  Instead, I’m going to write a directory of news. Over the next day or two, as blog posts
get written on the details from people across our team, I’ll update it with links.  In the meantime, there are some good places to look for details: News The VSALM blog Visual Studio Marketplace Here’s a brain dump of all of the significant things we’re releasing or announcing today (scoped by TFS/VS Team Services and our DevOps solutions).  I’m sure I’ve missed a few things: General Visual Studio Online is now Visual Studio Team Services Try to be...(Read whole news on source site)

Originally posted on: today’s announcement at Microsoft Connect() about the public preview of the next generation of Visual Studio Release Management, it is also time to announce the (imminent) release of a new book that covers among other things this new version of RM. Me and my fellow ALM MVP Mathias Olausson have been working hard during the last 6 months on this book, using early alpha and beta versions of this brand new version of Visual Studio Release Management. Writing about a changing platform can be rather challenging, and our publisher (Apress) have been
very patient with us regarding delays and late changes!
About the book The book is titled Continuous Delivery with Visual Studio ALM 2015 and is aiming to be a more practical complement to Jez Humble’s seminal Continous Delivery book with a heavy focus of course on how to implement these processes using the Visual Studio...(Read whole news on source site)

Microsoft Announces Next Generation of Visual Studio Release Management

Originally posted on: at the Microsoft Connect() event, Microsoft announced the public preview of the brand new version of Visual Studio Release Management. The public preview is available on Visual Studio Team Services (a.k.a. Visual Studio Online, in case you missed that announcement! :-)), and will debut on premise later in 2016.   So, what’s this new version about? Let’s summarize some of the major features about it:
Web Based The existing version of Visual Studio Release Management, that was originally acquired from InCycle back in
2013, uses a standalone WPF client for authoring, triggering and tracking releases. It always felt a bit awkward and wasn’t really integrated with the rest of TFS. The new version is completely rewritten to be a web based experience and is part of the web access, as a new “Release” tab. From this hub you can author release definitions, manage approval workflows and trigger and track releases.   Shared Infrastructure with TFS Build With the new build system in TFS 2015, Microsoft already has a great automation platform that is scriptable,...(Read whole news on source site)
