Getting Started with WPF (Visual Studio "Orcas")

יום שבת, מאי 12, 2007

I always say that a developer cannot know everything and be fully updated with technology. In my opinion a developer should choose several technologies / tools / areas and develop an expertise in them, instead of knowing everything not deeply. When WinFX (later to become ) came along I had chosen to be an expert in  and , and let someone else pick up . Recently I have joined a new project that looks into WPF to see whether the presentation layer should be developed with it. As a member of the Architecture Team of the project, and as the...

Customers have communicated to Microsoft through the pre-release community technology preview (CTP) program and other channels that this product name may cause potential confusion with other database product names in the industry. Microsoft has taken this feedback...

Getting Started with LINQ

יום שישי, יוני 2, 2006

One of the benefits of being involved in a cutting edge .net project, is that you frequently ask yourself about new technologies that can be helpful in the project. So I decided to check up on LINQ: The LINQ Project is a codename for a set of extensions to the .NET Framework that encompass language-integrated query, set, and transform operations. It extends C# and Visual Basic with native language syntax for queries and provides class libraries to take advantage of these capabilities. If you want to start getting into LINQ capabilities, this post (and probably the few following) will contain...
