Can I use Netbook as my development machine?

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 22, 2010    Points: 0   Category :.NET Framework

    Daily I spend lot of time in travelling.  I am planning to buy a netbook so that I can use it while travelling to my office.  My question is if I install visual studio 2008/10 on my netbook will work properly?  Will netbook be able to execute visual studio and other tools efficiently?
    In short, can I use netbook as my development machine?  Because what I have heard is netbook is nothing but mini laptops and it is mostly used for internet browsing.  But can these mini laptops behave like a development machine?

Auth. across subdomains prevents Auth. on development machine

Is there any solution to the following scenario (which I'm in right now)...? I have 2 related websites under 2 related but distinct subdomains, 1 web server, 1 membership database Prior to configuring  these for cross-domain login, I could test the website in my development server that comes with VS2008. Then i make the following changes in the web configs of each site: identical authentications->forms element, both referencing the same domain identical machinekey elements identical membership, profile, and role providers with applicationName="/" And now, I just can't login. I can reset the password, access the db, etc, but i think because the development machine isn't in the subdomain or something, it won't let me test the rest of the authenticated-users-only pages. It's a very simple test I'm trying to do. There's very few pages, and a barebones webconfig in each, except for the elements inserted above. How can I get this to work so that I can test/debug from my development machine and still login and do everything I need to?  Thanks!

Deploying taxonomy term store and managed meta column from development machine to production machine

Hi, In my development environment, I created a taxonomy term store by importing a CSV file. I also created a site column of type "managed meta data" based on that term store. Now, I want to migrate to production environment. What is the best way to do this? When I generate the schema of my site column, it looks like this: <Field Type="TaxonomyFieldTypeMulti"    DisplayName="Article Type"    List="{d8b20e4f-ce12-4def-b59d-d44da2c13234}"    WebId="eef74e7c-a852-4c89-b811-e31b86853641"    ShowField="Path1033"    Required="FALSE"    EnforceUniqueValues="FALSE"    Group="Custom Columns"    ID="{47f78411-65fa-43c9-8cb8-68955aea1256}"    SourceID="{eef74e7c-a852-4c89-b811-e31b86853641}"    StaticName="Article_x0020_Type"    Name="Article_x0020_Type"    Version="4"    Mult="TRUE"    Sortable="FALSE"> <Default></Default> <Customization> <ArrayOfProperty> <Property> <Name>SspId</Name> <Value xmlns:q1="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" p4:type="q1:string" xmlns:p4="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">99d

best practice in creating a development machine


hi, I have been working on sharepoint for sometime now..I have mastered the sharepoint designer workflow. however, it is kinda limited...and I am thinking of exploring the backend development of MOSS, I have been posting some enquiries on this forum, and came to know about visual studio workflow and event features.

The thing is, I only have two servers in my organisation, MOSS runs on one server and SQL server runs on another. Visual studio isn't installed on the MOSS server, and there is no development taking place in MOSS server right now.

Q1 - I have got another development machine, installed with windows server 2008 and MOSS and Visual Studio, but I have named the machine differently as all the machines in my organization are connected to a domain. I think I also made a mistake by creating a different site collection instead of using a similar name as the current server. Can I know what are the best practices used when it comes to planning a development machine?

Q2 - I have created a simple event feature testing thingy on the development machine and it works, how do I export it over to MOSS server, cause..I have mentioned the site url in the C# code, but the exact url in  the server is different.  Is there some kinda guide that I can refer to..should I install visual studio on the server itself ( wierd )

need some advice


vastly different performance of update query on development machine and on server



Using VisualWebDeveloper 2010 on the development machine. All nice and fast.

Using VisualWebDeveloper 2008 on the server. Server runs on Windows Server 2008 and has IIS 7.

It looks like that when 'table', a datatabe filled up in C# code behind, is getting longer (say 100 rows), then the server (whether running the website on IIS or on the local host of VIsualWebDeveloper2008!!!) is really slowing down. Checked it in debug mode and traced it down to


This line takes 5 seconds to execute, with 100 rows. On the development machine, it takes almost no time.

How can that be?

Are there any know issues? Could it be that there is incompatibility between different version of SQL server or something like that? The update works, it is just awefully slow, but only on the server.

What's going on? And how to solve it?

Thank you.

Best regards,


Synchronizing schema from local development machine to remote web server


As a single developer in a small business I'm developing a data-driven website on my local machine using VS2008 Professional (I also have 2010 Professional)

It is then synchronised with a dedicated server using Expression Web (ditto design)

I'm using SqlExpress both machines and as features are added, I want to synchronize the dedicated server schema from the local schema

VS2010 has such a feature, but it's a ____ of a price to pay for one feature - basically adding fields as I add functionality.

I'm surprised SqlServer doesn't have such a feature built in - am I missing something?

(I've trialled RedGate SqlCompare, but it can't access the remote db, and I'm reluctant to enable SqlServer Remote Connections on a machine I don't own).


Code Optimized Web Development Profile (VS 2010 and .NET 4.0 Series)

When you first run VS 2010 it prompts you to select an IDE profile to use. The profile you select will configure how tool windows are displayed/docked in the IDE by default and set the default keyboard shortcuts. You can then customize any of these settings by using the Tools->Options menu within the IDE and then override/change them. You can also later reset your profile and pick a different one by choosing the Tools->Import and Export Settings menu command.

High-Performance .NET Application Development & Architecture

It has always been a goal of project architects to plan an effective strategy from the ground up in regards to an new application. All relevant factors are taken into consideration with respect to the application, from its design and layout to a functional website infrastructure. Pre-.NET strategies and design guidelines still effective now were developed with Microsoft's DNA (Distributed interNet Application) platform. This model successfully served the purpose of architecting N(any number of)-Tier (levels) applications. In its basic sense, as in most robust, distributed applications, you'll architect 3 main layers or Tiers: presentation, business rules and data access.

ASP.NET 4 and Visual Studio 2010 Web Development Beta 2 Overview

Many exciting changes for ASP.NET are coming in the .NET Framework version 4. This document gives an overview of many of the new features that are included in the Beta 2 release of the .NET Framework 4 and of Visual Studio 2010.

Logic behind N -Tier Application Development

In the arena of application development, developers all over the world use various programming languages, technical processes, and technical tools. While using number of technical & non technical elements the processes or methods become complex, for simplification of the application development process, developers use various techniques such as dividing the application architecture into layers or parts. In the professional & technical language this separation or division process is called N-Tier Application Development process, where "N" stands for number and "tire" stands for layers or parts.

Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC)

This is also known as Classic Life Cycle Model (or) Linear Sequential Model (or) Waterfall Method. This model has the following activities.

SDLC Approach or Software Development Life Cycle

SDLC process stats from conception to completion of any software project. According to this approach the software development team is responsible for the whole project development life cycle. After doing SRS and requirements analysis; developers follow different models of Software development Life Cycle (SDLC) available, while the most common model is SDLC waterfall model. They divide project in different stages & phases and the output of each stage or phase becomes the input for next stage.

System Development Life Cycle

The Systems Development Life Cycle (SDLC) is a conceptual model used in project management that describes the stages involved in an information system development project from an initial feasibility study through maintenance of the completed application. Various SDLC methodologies have been developed to guide the processes involved including the waterfall model (the original SDLC method), rapid application development (RAD), joint application development (JAD), the fountain model and the spiral model. Mostly, several models are combined into some sort of hybrid methodology

The Agile System Development Life Cycle (SDLC)

The goal of this article is to describe the agile system development life cycle (SDLC), putting it in context from what you may have heard about within the agile community and more importantly within the context of your overall IT efforts.

Various SDLC methodologies have been developed to guide the processes involved, including the waterfall model (which was the original SDLC method); rapid application development (RAD); joint application development (JAD); the fountain model; the spiral model; build and fix; and synchronize-and-stabilize.

Dynamic Systems Development Model (DSDM) Methodology

The Dynamic Systems Development Model was developed in the U.K. in the mid-1990s. It is the evolution of rapid application development (RAD) practices. DSDM boasts the best-supported training and documentation of any of the agile software development techniques, at least in Europe. DSDM favors the philosophy that nothing is built perfectly the first time and looks to software development as an exploratory endeavor.

Easier Silverlight Development against SharePoint

I have been spending quite a bit of time lately working with Silverlight 3 and SharePoint. One of the first big shifts for me is that Silverlight Development is Client development. Silverlight runs in the browser, but it runs on the client, so no SharePoint Object Model code. You have to access all of the goodness that is SharePoint through its web services.
