Converting to Windows 8 from Windows Phone | Looking back–what would we do differently (12 of 12)

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
source: We started with a Windows Phone application and converted it to a Windows 8 equivalent. The end result was far from a clone, neither visually nor in function, but that was never the goal. The goal was to take a real application through the trembling steps of converting into a fully functional prototype on Windows 8. The idea of this last post in the series is to look back and discuss what we had done differently building the Windows Phone app, knowing what we know now. This post is a part in a
series - you can find the full index here. Isolate 3rd party libraries Yes, we know – there are lots of great frameworks out there. Yes, we know – the wheel should not be reinvented over and over. So, to be clear, we are not against 3rd party libraries on Windows Phone. ...Read more ...(Read whole news on source site)

EF5 Sample Provider Published

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
We have published a new version of the sample provider that supports features introduced in the Entity Framework 5. It can be downloaded from the MSDN Code Samples Gallery. This updated sample takes the sample provider code we released for Entity Framework 4 and demonstrates how to add support for spatial types and how to move to the new version of schema views to be able to reverse-engineer table valued functions (stored procedures with multiple resultsets did not require any changes to the provider). This version does not contain a sample provider for Migrations or Code First which
currently use a separate provider model. The tests (which are now using xUnit) not only test the sample provider but also show how to build queries leveraging features introduced in Entity Framework 5. The code also contains a Data Designer Extensibility (DDEX) provider sample that now works with Visual Studio 11. Note: To build and use the sample Visual Studio 11 and .NET Framework 4.5 is needed. xUnit test runner is required to be able to run the tests inside the Visual Studio. See the project page for more details. Pawel Kadluczka, ...(Read whole news on source site)
