While working with some folder specific operations and console window, I learnt a new thing (I would rather say it as trick) today i.e. how to open console window in that specific folder path without using any special tricks in Windows Registry or typing the full path in console. Today in this blog post, I am going to share the same trick with you. In case you find it useful, drop a line below. Most of the time when we need to use the console window in Windows system, we open it and then write the path to navigate
to that specific folder location. Sometime few advanced users changes the Registry to add a new context menu item to open the console window in that folder itself. Few Windows tune-up applications also provides options to change the registry with suitable and easy to use settings. So, are there any other alternate ways to do the same without changing the registry key and/or using any 3rd party applications? Yes, let’s discuss this trick in this post and I hope, it will provide you an easy way to open it. I tested it on Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 but...(Read whole news on source site)

In this episode, I am joined by Alok Shriram of the .NET Framework team and Kirill Osenkov of the Roslyn team. They show us the new experience for browsing the .NET Reference Source. You can browse through the .NET Framework source code online at http://referencesource.microsoft.com/. You can also download the source code as a solution and browse through it in Visual Studio. This gives you the ability to debug into .NET Framework code from your project code. For more information: http://referencesource.microsoft.com/ .NET Framework blog Ref12, a Visual Studio extension that changes the behavior of F12 to jump to the online
browser for symbols that aren't in your solution but are part of the .NET Reference Source ...(Read whole news on source site)

Originally posted on: http://geekswithblogs.net/theArchitectsNapkin/archive/2014/03/05/what-does-antifragility-mean.aspxThe notion of Antifragility has hit the software community, it seems. Russ Miles has posted a couple of small articles on it in his blog, asking what it could mean for software development – but also listing a couple of ingrediences he thinks are needed. I´ve read the canonical book on antifragility by Nassim Taleb, too. And I second Russ´ description: Antifragile software is software “that thrives on the unknown and change”. But still… what does it mean? “To thrive on the unknown and change” to me is too fuzzy
for me to help me in my day to day work. Thus I cannot even judge if Russ is right when he says, micro services help to implement Antifragility. That´s why I want to share some thoughts on the topic here. Maybe writing about it helps to clarify the issue for myself – at least ;-) Is Antifragility something to strive for? To me that´s a definite Yes. Yes, I want my software to be antifragile. Clearly software should not be brittle/fragile. That´s why there exists a canonical non-functional requirement called robustness. But antifragility goes beyond that. Software...(Read whole news on source site)
