Good news for those still using VB 6: it’ll be supported on Windows 8!
April 10, 2012: That’s the date Windows Vista support moves from mainstream to extended (meaning paid for everything but security updates).
Scott Hanselman details Portable Class Libraries which is a feature available in Visual Studio 2010 (through an extension) and in Visual Studio 11.
Good news TFS 11 power tools (beta) are now publicly available
Yay! All sources are on CodePlex! if you haven’t already, go check them out because that’s some good looking .NET code
Another article which we like on the same subject is: “Large Object Heap Uncovered” (written by Maoni Stephens).
We actually wrote an article ourselves which is quite related to the subject as well: Manipulating SQL Blobs With Streams.
“IndexedDB is a W3C Working Draft that enables you to store, search, and retrieve data on the user’s device, even when Internet connectivity is disabled. IndexedDB is a feature of the Web platform shared by IE10 and Metro style apps in the Windows 8 Consumer Preview.”
Hmm, very interesting…
We did it, it was worthy, so we thought we’d share
With SQL Server 2012 now available, I’m sure it’ll come in handy.
