Smart Unit Tests in Visual Studio 2015




http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn823749(v=vs.140).aspx


I wrote the program and added the smart tests.

  • I think that smartest can be very useful. It worked nicely. I was able to update the program and regenerate the tests
  • Smart tests did identify the gaps in my testing
  • I was able to add manual tests. Regenerating the smart tests didn't affect the manual tests.






 

Web Development Best Practices (Building Real-World Cloud Apps with Azure)


•Stateless web servers behind a smart load balancer.
•Avoid session state (or if you can’t avoid it, use distributed cache rather than a database).
•Use a CDN to edge-cache static file assets (images, scripts).
•Use .NET 4.5’s async support to avoid blocking calls.

Roslyn- the new .net Compiler


https://roslyn.codeplex.com/wikipage?title=Overview&referringTitle=Home

The core mission of Roslyn : opening the black boxes and allowing tools and end users to share in the wealth of information compiler have about our code ,

Compiles become platforms - API that you can use to code related tasks in your code and application


Anyone can build code analysis tools.


Opportunities for innovation in which  areas ?

1. Meta programming

2. Code Generation and Transformation

3. Interactive use of C# and VB Languages

4. Embedding of C# and VB in domain specific languages


Roslyn and Resharper

http://blog.jetbrains.com/dotnet/2014/04/10/resharper-and-roslyn-qa/

Looks like resharper will not exploit Roslyn for short term. I am glad that lot of people complaining about the performance impact of Resharper. I know so many people who will not use resharper because it slows down the performance.






 

Octopus - The Release Management Software

Attended a Technical Seminar for Octopus by Ian Paullin

 http://octopusdeploy.com/

Octopus deploy is automated release management tool for .net applications.

Advantages of Octopus  vs  Microsoft  Release Management
1. It is very cost effective
2. You don't have to copy the workflow for each stage like Microsoft Release Management
3. Web Interface . No need to install the client software for each user machine.

Dependency Injection in ASP.NET vNext



http://blogs.msdn.com/b/webdev/archive/2014/06/17/dependency-injection-in-asp-net-vnext.aspx

very interesting discussion here
http://forums.asp.net/t/1989008.aspx?Feedback+on+ASP+NET+vNext+Dependency+Injection

Step 1:

Start a new project




Step 2:



Step 3 :

Add  "Microsoft.Framework.DependencyInjection" entry to project.json



Step 4:

ADD  interface "IUser.CS" to your models





Step 5:
Add the implementation of "User.CS" to your models



Step 6:
Wire up the IUser Interface and User Class in the ConfigureServices method for startup.cs




Step 7

Add the constructor for controller and you are all set







Is there any strategy behind Visual Studio 2015 ?




1. There is world beyond Windows . Lot of  Mac and Linux Machines

2.  More Productivity to Developers.(Node.js provides great feedback. Need to compete with such framework).

3. Keep up with JavaScript Explosion

4. Cloud Computing is future . Make development effort seamless between Desktop and Cloud.
 

What is new in C# 6.0

Here are some new features in

1. Primary Constructors

2. Auto Property Initializers

3.  Using Statement for static members

4. Dictionary Initializers

5. Declaration Expression

6. Await inside a Finally brace

7. Exception Filters
