On blogging, sharing and commenting

This is not about code, but about something a fellow developer and blogger told me, which made me quite sad. It’s a kind of personal rant, so feel free to skip it if you are looking for code. In 2007, after a frustrating search on the internet for a complete and working code sample for whatever it was, I was quite pissed off. And I decided “well if apparently people are too lazy or too much ‘look at me’ superior to post complete and working samples, I will start doing so myself”. I also could have gone to the blogs
I visited posting comments like “you moron, this code is incomplete and/or wrong” or “why don’t you stop coding/blogging the cr*p you post is useless”. While technically I would have been right, I don’t think it would have helped me solve my problems. Starting blogging myself did not help me solve that problems either, but at least I had a place where I could dump my own solutions for later reference. Very handy. Apparently other people liked it too. I was lucky enough to post a few good articles, and a few very dumb ones too, but those were...(Read whole news on source site)

Querying RavenDB databases

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
As we have seen in previous blog posts getting data from a RavenDB database is easy. Either use the IDocumentSession.Query() function to load a series of documents or the IDocumentSession..Load() function to load a document using its identity. However sometimes we want more control over what we want to load. It turns out this is rather easy as the IDocumentSession.Query() function returns an IQueryable, actually it returns a IRavenQueryable to be exact but more about that another time.
Querying the database As IDocumentSession.Query
() return an IQueryable we can just start composing queries
just as we can with EntityFramework or another ORM. In my original online example you might have noticed that the books aren't ordered. As with any query this is easy to correct. All we need to do is add an order by clause.
1: public ActionResult Index() 2: { 3: using (var session = MvcApplication.DocumentStore.OpenSession())

In c# 5.0 Microsoft has introduced a Caller information attribute. It’s a new feature that is introduced in C# 5.0 and very useful if you want to log your code activities. With the help of this you can implement the log functionality very easily. It can help any programmer in tracing, debugging and diagnostic of any application. With the help of Caller Information we can get following information over there. CallerFilePathAttribute: With help of  this attribute we can get full path of source file that contains caller. This will be file path from
which contains caller at compile time. CallerLineNumberAttribute:  With the help of this attribute we can get line number of source file which the method is called. CallerMemberNameAttribute: With the help of this attribute we can get the method or property name of the caller. Read more

Windows SBS 2011 through SPLA: Answers to “What to order now?”

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
This past week, I received questions from a couple partners regarding their current clients who are licensed for Windows SBS 2011 through the Services Provider License Agreement (SPLA) and what should they order now and for how long. After conveying the information back to them, I received a simple request asking where the information is posted so that they could share it with their fellow partners and with their clients to see. Because of this, I thought I would post it here on my blog for all of you to see, so you could have this information and its location
as well. Partners currently licensing Windows Small Business Server 2011 prior to its removal from the SPLA program may continue licensing and reporting this product until their contract expires or they migrate to Windows Server Essentials (whichever comes first). Partners who need a longer transition period are welcome to sign a new SPLA contract in December (and place an order for SBS) and continue reporting Windows Small Business Server 2011 for the term of their SPLA agreement which is 3 years or until such time as they migrate to Windows Essentials.  Windows...(Read whole news on source site)
