any device. They are relying on developers to build those apps with increasing speed –that can connect to popular services and on-premises systems and auto scale as the business needs.

Querying SharePoint

Introduction SharePoint, being a content management system, of course, offers a couple of ways to query its contents programmatically. Here we will explore some of these options. Web Parts First, of course, there are the web parts. These allow us to configure queries visually on a page. The most important web parts are: ContentByQueryWebPart: use this for simple queries that do not return much contents, on a single site collection. Can be used in SharePoint Online. Can only be customized through XSLT. ContentBySearchWebPart (introduced in SharePoint 2013): more powerful, but does not exist in SharePoint Online. Can handle more complex queries
that can span multiple site collections and multiple levels of sorting. Can only be customized through HTML and JavaScript templates. Results can be refined. XsltListViewWebPart/DataFormWebPart: can be used to view of a specific list. The display can be totally configured. XsltListViewWebPart is a bit more powerful. ListViewByQuery: requires that you pass an SPList and a SPQuery instance. Can only display pre-defined views. APIs There are several APIs for querying, either directly or using the search index. SPQuery: can only be applied to a single list:

PostSharp Technologies is pleased to announce the release of PostSharp 4.1, the latest version of the #1 compiler extension for .NET, adding support for design patterns and thread safety to C# and Visual Basic. PostSharp 4.1 focuses on extending the set of supporting platforms by adding Xamarin (both iOS and Android), Visual Studio 2015, Visual Studio Universal Apps to the list of compatible products, and by improving the level of support of Windows 8 and Windows Phone. PostSharp 4.1 will also support new minor platform updates automatically, without requiring any update of PostSharp itself. Xamarin Support This is definitively our biggest headline. PostSharp
4.1 now supports Xamarin at the same level of feature as Windows Phone or Windows Store. Excepted the diagnostics pattern library, all PostSharp features are now strictly cross-platform and have been tested on several physical devices. PostSharp 4.1 is an excellent choice to build large and complex applications for mobile devices and will delivers the same economies of scale as for desktop or server applications, possible saving thousands of lines of codes and hundreds of defects. Note that Xamarin Studio is not supported. You must build your application on Windows using Visual Studio in order to use PostSharp with Xamarin. There’s no specific...(Read whole news on source site)

Introducing the AngularU Conference

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
In late 2014 my good friend Peter Kellner approach me with a big idea – an idea that immediately caught my attention. He wanted to explore collaborating on a new conference idea that would highlight Angular and other “hot” Web development topics and wondered if I’d be interested in working with him and another friend of his named Kevin Nilson (who is also a good friend now) on a full-scale conference. I’ve been involved with chairing a lot of conference tracks over the years but never been the driving force behind organizing an entire
conference. While the idea was definitely exciting it was also a little scary – at least initially.

After talking more with Peter and Kevin I decided to jump in and we’ve been working hard to put on a top-notch conference called AngularU (short for “Angular University”) that will be held in San Francisco from June 22 – 25, 2015. I’m really excited about the conference and thought I’d discuss some of the key reasons in this post. The Web is Changing Rapidly It’s no secret that the web is changing at a rapid pace. In fact “rapid” may...(Read whole news on source site)
