Working with Windows Azure command line tools from within Visual Studio

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
Right after my last post (Working with Windows Azure command line tools from PhpStorm), the obvious question came to mind… Can I do Windows Azure things using the command line tools from within Visual Studio as well? Sure you can! At least if you have the NuGet Package Manager Console installed into your Visual Studio. For good order: you can use either the PowerShell cmdlets that are available or use the Node-based tools available (how-to). In this post we’ll be using the PowerShell cmdlets. And once those are installed… there’s nothing you have to do to get these
working in Visual Studio! The first thing we’ll have to do before being able to do anything with these cmdlets is making sure we can access the Windows Azure management service. Invoke the Get-AzurePublishSettings command. This will open op a new browser window and generate a .publishsettings. Save it somewhere and remember the full path to it. Next, we’ll have to import that file using the Import-AzurePublishSettingsFile command. If everything went according to plan, we’ll now be able to do some really interesting things from inside our NuGet Package Manager console. Let’s see if we can list all...(Read whole news on source site)

MEF 2.0 - mini series: part 1 this is the first post of a new mini series about MEF 2.0. MEF 2.0 is a reflection of a community requests.
features like Open Generics, fluent and conventional discovery, lifetime handling of the part, better exception handling and more, was all requested by the community. each post of this mini series will target a single enhancement. Open Generics one of the most annoying missing feature in MEF 1 was the lack of support for Open generics. the following
code (which is fully functioning in MEF 2.0) didn't worked in MEF 1.
Code Snippet
public class Foo {     [Import]     public EventAggregator IntAggregator { get; set; }            }   [Export] public class EventAggregator {     public event Action Notify = (item) => { };     public void Send(T item)     {         Notify(item);     } }
as obvious as it may seem, this piece of functionality is missing in MEF 1.
if you try to do it in MEF 1 it will look like the following code:

Thanks for all your patience during my move to a new job and a new area. I've been settling into my new position here at Amazon in Seattle and am loving every minute of it so far! Unfortunately, there's still a lot of life and work juggling at the moment. The whole team is changing to a new building this week and moving out of corporate housing and into our own apartment next week. I'm trying to blog as I'm able, though, and hope to be able to get back to regular blogging by the end of the month. Thanks again for
your patience! -Jim ...(Read whole news on source site)

Web Sites Using Knockout.js

Lately I’ve been asked a few times to share some companies that are using Knockout.js. While many of the customers I have worked with prefer (or don’t allow) sharing of that type of information. So I asked around and Ryan Niemeyer pointed me to this google group discussion on the topic. Some were active (after verifying personally) and others were not. I also did some googling / binging (or bingling if you prefer) and in some google forums found several public sites reportedly using Knockout.js. Since they are all public and I have no affiliation with any of them, I

Lazy<T> in C# 4.0

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
Before C# 4.0 there was no on demand initialization by default. So at the time of declaration we need to create a value or object will be null or we have to create on demand initialization via coding.. But with C# 4.0 we now have lazy class. As per MSDN it support lazy initialization so it means if we use lazy class then it will initialize the object at the time of demand. It is very useful for UI responsiveness and other scenario's.  Lazy initialization delays certain initialization and  it’s improve the
start-up time of a application. In the earlier framework if we need this kind of functionality we have to do it manually via coding but from C# 4.0 onwards it have Lazy class. With the Help of this we can improve the responsiveness of C# application. Following is a simple example. using System; namespace LazyExample { class Program { static void Main(string[] args) { Lazy lazyCustomer = new Lazy(); ...(Read whole news on source site)
