Motivation is a powerful skill. It can lift you up from the worst of places, and inspire you to new heights. After all, nothing is worse than slogging your way through your days, or working your way through a bunch of mundane tasks. But, like I said, motivation is a skill. You need to learn it. For many people it does not come naturally. And chances are, many of us have had bad models, bad advice, and worse, bad habits for a lifetime. One of the most important insights I found was said by
Stephen Covey long ago – satisfied needs don’t motivate. It’s why we need to stay hungry. Here’s how you stay hungry -- find a problem you hate, and focus on creating a solution you love. But how you light your fire from the inside out in a sustainable way? That’s where the 7 habits of highly motivated people
comes in. I wanted to put together a very simple set of habits and practices that actually work for building your motivational muscle and finding your inner mojo. Here are the 7 habits of...(Read whole news on source site)
After clearing away all the drinks, party streamers and general clutter from the launch party, a few stragglers were found loitering in the rubble, so we picked a few randomly and awarded them some prizes. Well almost. It was one hell’uv’a party and there was lots of fun, now …
var client = new GraphClient(new Uri("http://user:pass@localhost.:7474/db/data"));
9 times out of 10, that’ll work just fine for you, the problem is if your password has a character in it that the Uri constructor can’t parse – now I’m sure you can escape the character – but I’ve been unable to find out how, so something like:
will fail with a ‘UriFormatException: Invalid URI: Invalid port specified.’ message (I’ve added a ‘#’ to the password).
What to do???
Spiffily – the GraphClient has another constructor that takes in an IHttpClient, so we can create our own version that injects the Authorization header...(Read whole news on source site)
We got a bug report in the RavenDB mailing list that was interesting to figure out. The code in question was:
foreach(var product in GetAllProducts(session)) // GetAllProducts is implemented using streaming
if (i > 1000)
i = 0;
This code would cause a timeout error to occur after a while. The question is why? We can assume that this code is running in a console application, and it can take as long as it wants to process things.
And the server is not impacted from what the client
is doing, so why do we have a timeout error here? The quick answer is that we are filling in the buffers.
GetAllProducts is using the RavenDB streaming API, which push the results of the query to the client as soon as we have anything. That lets us parallelize work on both server and client, and avoid having to hold everything in memory.
However, if the client isn’t processing things fast enough, we run into an interesting problem. The server is sending the data to the client over TCP. The client machine will get the results, buffer them and send them to...(Read whole news on source site)

It’s almost one week by now… I had a chance to speak in front of the great audience of Microsoft Developer Community, Odisha. Came back with some good moments spent at Bhubaneswar during “Enterprise Ready Cloud OS Roadshow” event. In this post, sharing my slides on “Azure Mobile Services” along with few snaps of the event for the people who missed it.
On 21st March, me and Abhishek met at Kolkata Airport and boarded together for the event. Old flight but had a good experience. When we reached at the event, it was already started and Nirmal was giving
his speech on overview of Azure platform. After his session, Abhishek started his speech on Azure platform and covered most of the things. After lunch, Tadit presented Azure website and at the end, I started with “Azure Mobile Services” demonstrating the integration part in both Windows Store app and Windows Phone app. Here is the slide (PPT), that I used to demonstrate “Azure Mobile Services”. I will soon write an in-depth blog post on that topic, but till that time use it as reference. Here are some snaps from the event: And a token of appreciation from the group of Microsoft Developer Community,...(Read whole news on source site)
