Next week I start a short swing around southern and south-midlands England. I had hoped to do more events in England, but this short swing of four user groups is all I’m doing in England (though I’ll be in close-by Scotland in early August and Ireland in September). These events will cover a variety of topics including Node.js
, ASP.NET Web API v2 and AngularJS. These are the events starting next Thursday. July 24th: Bristol .NET User Group
(Bristol, UK) July 28th: Smart Dev's User Group
(near Hereford, UK) July 29th: Gloucestershire
.NET User Group (near Gloucester, UK) July 30th: .NET Notts Meetup
(Nottingham, UK) If you want to go, please sign up (via the links) so that they have good head-counts. Love to see you all make it and ask the hard questions during these events! Cheers!
The day after Microsoft's announcement that it will lay off 18,000, more specifics are coming into focus, including information about what's happening in the Operating Systems Group.
What an amazing week we just wrapped up in Washington D.C. for Worldwide Partner Conference 2014! And as always, one of the biggest highlights of the entire event is the ability to see and connect with you, our Microsoft partners from around the world, whether I knew you before or if this was my first time meeting you. In addition to getting to meet you, hearing the incredible stories you all share with me about yourselves, your companies, your successes and your plans for the future are inspiring and exciting at the same time. Continuing on the
tradition that began several years ago as just an experiment I thought about trying out (Connecting with others – A HUGE value of #WPC10 (Look who I found)
, I am very happy to bring you the collection of pictures from the Fantastic People of Worldwide Partner Conference 2014. For those not familiar with The Fantastic People of WPC concept, it is quite simple. Since building connections is such a huge value of WPC and for me, being fortunate enough to get to spend time with all of the partners from around the world, I offer to capture pictures with...(Read whole news on source site)
It happens sometime when we want to schedule shutdown or hibernate our Windows OS after a specific time of interval. If you are an advanced user, you must be aware of schedule shutdown option from a command line. But how to schedule hibernate? In this small tips & trick post, I am going to share you the way to do this from command prompt itself. Continue reading to know the trick.
You must be aware of the command “shutdown
” which you can invoke from a command prompt to logoff, shutdown, restart and even hibernate the system.
You can pass “/t xx
” as a command line parameter to the “shutdown
” command to schedule shutdown or restart operation after xx seconds. But what if one wants to hibernate the system after “xx
” seconds? The “shutdown /t xx /h
” will not help you out. To resolve this, there is an alternate way (we already know: everything in this technical world has workarounds) which uses the “ping
” and “shutdown
” commands altogether. Here is the trick for your reference:

Yes, I choose the title on purpose. The topic of this post is this issue
. In RavenDB, we use replication to ensure high availability and load balancing. We have been using that for the past five years now, and in general, it has been great, robust and absolutely amazing when you need it. But like all software, it can run into interesting scenarios. In this case, we had three nodes, call them A, B and C. In the beginning, we had just A & B and node A was the master node, for which all the data was written
and node B was there as a hot spare. The customer wanted to upgrade to a new RavenDB version, and they wanted to do that with zero downtime. They setup a new node, with the new RavenDB server, and because A was the master server, they decided to replicate from node B to the new node. Except… nothing appear to be happening. No documents were replicating to the new node, however, there was a lot of CPU and I/O. But nothing was actually happening. The customer opened a support call, and it didn’t take long to figure out what...(Read whole news on source site)
