ANN: The New Iteration: How XAML Transforms the Collaboration Between Designers and Developers in WP

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 04, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WPF
I'm excited to announce the availability of a white paper that's been long in the making: The New Iteration: How XAML Transforms the Collaboration Between Designers and Developers in WPF.  This is a 28 page white paper written by Jaime Rodriguez and I that digs into issues and solutions when working on a WPF project with both designers and developers.  A result of extensive interviews with developers and designers with real world WPF experience, Jaime and I tried to get some canonical information out there for people trying to live the XAML dream and realize the benefits of the new workflows engendered by XAML.  We talked to both internal Microsoft folks as well as many external companies to coalesce the best practices that are being established in this domain.   Would love to hear people's feedback and thoughts on the paper...

Getting Started with the SharePoint Packaging Designers

Visual Studio 2010 SharePoint Tooling supports packaging of WSP files with visual designers, tool-windows and MSBuild. Here we start by introducing the designers.

The feature and package designers expose deployment concepts which are familiar to SharePoint developers. These include features, packages and SharePoint items as well as their attributes and contents. Some of them include feature scope, feature dependencies, packaged assemblies, safe-controls, class resources, and more. Additionally, the designers abstract away the more difficult concepts and provide pre-deployment validation rules to avoid common issues when deploying your solutions. The designers allow advanced users partial or full control of the feature and solution manifest files to merge or add data and view the final product.

Performance tuning tips for database developers

Performance tuning is not easy and there aren't any silver bullets, but you can go a surprisingly long way with a few basic guidelines.

In theory, performance tuning is done by a DBA. But in practice, the DBA is not going to have time to scrutinize every change made to a stored procedure. Learning to do basic tuning might save you from reworking code late in the game.

Below is my list of the top 15 things I believe developers should do as a matter of course to tune performance when coding. These are the low hanging fruit of SQL Server performance - they are easy to do and often have a substantial impact. Doing these won't guarantee lightening fast performance, but it won't be slow either.

To the developers



To whoever built these adapters - dont EVER give up!

You are doing a great job!
