"ReSharper 7 EAP opened up just over a month ago providing early

If you are beginning to delve into HTML5 in VS.NET say in a MVC3 project using the Razor engine for example, you will want intellisense support for HTML5. This is not difficult to do, but the 'HTML Source Editing' toolbar may not be shown by default in your VS.NET instance. To add it preform the following steps:
1. Open VS.NET but do not open any specific project. This ensures the changes you make will be for all project's opened.
2. Go to 'View -> Toolbars' and select the 'HTML Source Editing' menu item.
/>3. To test, open a MVC3 or MVC4 project using the Razor engine and navigate to a .cshtml view. The dropdown will now be active and the default selection will be 'XHTML 1.0 Transitional'. Change it to 'HTML5'.
4. Now try typing in the first few letters of a HTML element or attribute, like the 'Canvas' tag.
You now have the HTML5 schema validation and intellisense support.

Martin Fowler's recent post about object-relational mapping
matches my own analysis of the usefulness of ORM tools.
They are no silver bullet, but they should not be dismissed without valid reason. If you want me to give up using ORM tools, you have to give me a better solution.
In this short blog, I will talk about how to assign media url in code behind for SSME: SmoothStreamingMediaElement. For this code sample, I am not using Microsoft Media Platform: Player Framework v2.6
. I am building the application from scratch using Silverlight Smooth Streaming Client v1.5
. I hope this short blog will help you while debugging.
1. You will need to add the player in .xaml file. I didn't set the streaming source in SmoothStreamingMediaElement in .xaml file.
2. And go to the code behind, and insert the following code
SmoothPlayer.SmoothStreamingSource = new Uri("http://devplatem.vo.msecnd.net/Sintel/Sintel_VC1.ism/manifest");
SmoothPlayer.MediaOpened += (o, e) =>
You will see from the code above, the first step is straight-forward, that we assign the media source URI to SmoothStreamingSource. However, if now, you immediately call SmoothPlayer.Play(), you will get an error. That's because when media source gets set up, Smooth Streaming player will do a bunch of things, such as downloading manifest and downloading some amount of data chunks. Thus, initially I called SmoothPlayer.Play() after ManifestReady() event, that's also wrong....(Read whole news on source site)
My 2012 conference schedule is shaping up nicely. I will visiting a series of conferences, code camps and user groups this year. Last year I didn't do this nearly as much as I was building a failed product. So back to my love of badges and beer. If you have the opportunity to be at any of these great events, do it. I love them all. (Also, if you see me at an event, please stop by and say hello. As many can attest, I don't bite much.) Here's the current slate (in chronological order): Atlanta
