The world of development is an interesting one where creativity comes alive through code to produce wonderful programs that do lots of cool stuff. Okay that's the Wizard of Oz intro over, is it really that rosy? It seems the world of development has c…
I like it when I kick off a build and there aren't any warnings. Unfortunately I'm forgetful and it's always easier to edit the code now then it is 3 months later (when I remember to look at the warnings). This post will cover capturing MSBuild warnings in TeamCity and displayign the results in the dashboard, a custom chart, the build log, a raw text artifact, and a custom report tab in the run results.
As I've moved from project to project, environment to environment, I've had opportunities to write unit tests after coding, do test first development, and once use unit tests as a living spec for an external developer (code none unit testing?). On…
This one slipped by me Microsoft .NET Framework 4 Platform Update 1. So we now have a new version of the .Net framework, but they didn't give it a new version number, they used some manager talk and a KB number. And let's not forget that there is a cl…
I was recently asked for some help with a very strange situation involving SQL Server and a .NET application using SqlCommand calls. It was thought to be a problem with SQL Server and in particular, sp_execute not being formed correctly.
Personally I have been sold on F# for a long time but some people however will need a lot of convincing before they move out of their comfort zone. Hopefully after reading this you will be more inclined to try it out.
Imagine you were given a directory full of files that did not have any file extensions and were told to figure out the file extension for every file. Picture how you might do this in VB or C#. Now take a look at this:
For the last few months I've had the pleasure of working with NDepend version 3. Most of my development at home is on linux these days, so I haven't used it as much as I'd like, but I have been using it to poke around in various codebases and see what…
We recently had a requirement to programatically create an entry in an existing Sharepoint calendar, so here is an example of how we went about doing this.I'll be using Visual Studio 2008 for this, but the process will similar for any other versions you are using. First of all, you will need to add a reference to one of the Sharepoint web references, so right-click your project and select Add Web Reference.
Recently I was working with some socket programming using the SocketAsyncEventArgs class. When writing high performance .NET code it is a good idea to keep object creation to a minimum. Instead of creating a new SocketAsyncEventArgs instance every time an action was performed I decided to put together a simple generic object pool. I hope you'll try it out and leave me some feedback.
