We look at EVERY piece of feedback that you send to us to decide what to fix, what to change, and what we need to do in our next version. If you
don’t tell us, we won’t know and we’ll do what we think you want and we aren’t always good mind readers. So what do we want you to do? Tell us what you think about Visual Studio 2015 so that we can use your input to make the product better! In this series of posts, we’ll describe your different options to give us feedback, talk about how we use that feedback, and share where we are taking the feedback tools in future versions of the product.

Setup your Chocolatey repository in Azure

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

Chocolatey is a package manager for Windows designed to be a decentralized framework for quickly installing applications and tools that you need. Chocolatey is actually built on top of the NuGet package system, but it is designed to fill a different need. Chocolatey wraps up applications and other executables and makes it easy to install them on your computer.

The goal behind this post is to successfully setup up a Chocolatey repository in Azure websites to distribute software easily throughout the network. You can use the same approach to host a repository on premises, by choosing a deployment
option not to host on Azure but on local IIS.

Follow the steps in the given order to complete the process.
Open Visual Studio and create an empty project (ASP.NET Web Application)

In the package manager console, type the cmdlet Install-Package Nuget.Server to install the NuGet server package

Alternatively you can use the Manage Nuget Packages options by right clicking the project.

Fixing Windows 10 store issues

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
It seems to be a common problem with the Windows 10 store to have issues downloading or updating apps. Any message you see is probably something like “Windows Store - Error Code: 0x80070005” or “Error Code: 0x803f7000”. The problem seems to be that some metadata related to the store gets corrupted, because more often than not the solution is to run wsreset, a utility that resets the store app. The wsreset utility is installed with Windows 10, so all you need to do is press the Windows key and type ‘wsreset’. Click or tap the wsreset app to run it. Some people find that it works best to
immediately reboot the computer, then open the store and your downloads should work. I find that the reboot is not typically required, so your mileage may vary. ...(Read whole news on source site)

I thoroughly enjoyed my trip up to Brisbane.  I got to see some friends, saw my sister and presented PhantomJS with SharePoint and SharePoint Online.  The response was tremendous, those that came to my session seems really interested and gave me more ideas for future discussions. The presentation and demo are here new business case scenarios:Automated Smoke Testing of sites - randomly check pages and DOM exist - "nothing has so far blown up"Smoke Testing of sites with different credentials!Scanning and scrapping text off dynamic (Single Page Application) pages and feed them to SharePoint's Search Indexing Service.  Thus,
