Stop fighting Node.js in the enterprise

In 1995 there were around 40 million people on the internet, but by 2011 there were almost 4.5 billion.

Internet connections have improved so much that buying a physical copy of any…

A Behavior Change in Visual Studio 2013 .NET Breakpoints

One of my favorite tricks is to use Visual Studio breakpoints to call a method to force state changes when testing code. There’s just some times where calling a method at a breakpoint is the fastest way to create a test. To call a method at a breakpoint, set a regular location breakpoint, right click…

Five Reasons ASP.NET Developers Should Care About Node.js

Unless you’ve been living under a rock (or perhaps in a van down by the river) you may have noticed that Node.js is kind of a big deal. Since its introduction in late 2009, Node has steadily grown in popularity and now occupies prime real estate as a (if not the) de facto choice of…

Cookbook for ASP.NET MVC and Angular.js Web Apps

As I’ve spent time with AngularJS, I’ve become very impressed with the clarity it brings to developing enterprise-level web applications. I thought it would also be valuable to create a GitHub repository with some examples of how one might integrate AngularJS with ASP.NET MVC. Thus, the Angular-MVC-Cookbook repository was born.

Now that Devscovery is over, it’s time to get back to answering questions about one of my favorite subjects: PDB files! Yes, I lead an extremely exciting life if PDB files set my heart racing. Maybe they have a pill for that. In my blog post on PDBs and remote debugging Patrick asked an interesting…

Correctly Creating Native C++ Release Build PDBs

In my ongoing discussion of PDB files and debugging, Sa Li had a great question: Should the final release native program also generate the pdb files before being published? If switching on the pdb in link setting, what kind of info would be added into the .exe executable file? I found our program grows a…
