Released: Code Contracts VS2012 Editor Extensions

24/03/2013

Code Contracts is an experimental project from Microsoft Research which provides a language-agnostic way to express coding assumptions in .NET programs, thus allowing for improved testability, static verification at compile time and automatic API documentation.

At my session, I said that Microsoft has not yet released the Code Contracts Editor Extensions for VS2012.

You also probably know that the only way to discover if your assumptions are correct is to execute the code and pray that exceptions won't be flying around. There must be a better way! Enter "Code Contracts". Code Contracts is an experimental project from Microsoft Research which provides a language-agnostic way to express coding assumptions in .NET programs, thus allowing...

Upcoming Event: WF 4.5 Lecture

05/03/2013

Windows Workflow Foundation (WF) is Microsoft's .NET implementation of a Workflow authoring and hosting environment. With WF 4.5 developers can easily author workflows using the Visual-Studio built-in WF designer, host them in multiple application environments using the provided runtime engine and even expose them as services for the outside world to consume.

In this session we'll focus on the cool new features which version 4.5 brings to the table with demonstrations including...
