  1. Visual Studio 2017 Installer Projects

    The one thing that frustrates me a bit is how often the Visual Studio installer projects change from version to version. In fact, as of this writing there is no project template for Visual Studio 2017. It just so happened that the project that I was working on, was originally developed in Visual Studio 2015. It included a setup project that was now no longer available in Visual Studio 2017. It simply displayed the setup project as (incompatible).Some might argue that I should just go back to using...

  3. What is cloud computing?

    Cloud is a central repository where you can put access manage data and services from anywhere, anytime. Cloud computing is simply to put the services of cloud i.e. servers, storage, databases, networking, software, analytics and much more over the internet. the companies that offer such services are known as cloud providers. providers charge you for these services upon your usage, its just likely you charged for electricity, Gas, Water usage every month at your home.Still not clear about what is...
  4. The Path is Null and Full of Squiggles

    I've been using Visual Studio 2017 since the earliest bits were available and I can confidently say, I'm a fan and highly recommend you give it a shot if you get a chance.With that being said, sometimes new features can cause things to blow up and this post is going to be discussing one of those such features, namely Lightweight Solution Load.Recently, I opened up a decently sized solution (~9 projects) and everything seemed in order. All of my dependencies were there, with no warning signs to be...
  5. Sharing is Caring: Using Shared Projects in ASP.NET

    As software developers, copy-pasting some code or a few files and having it in multiple places has always been smelly. There are several different avenues that you can take to avoid this kind of redundancy, but this post will focus on one that it seems isn’t talked about too often: Shared Projects.Prior to the introduction to Shared Projects, I’ll briefly go over why Shared Projects themselves were introduced, and how you might have accomplished similar behavior before their release.With the major...
  6. Glyphfriend 2.1 Released! Now with Library Filtering

    It hasn't been too long since the latest 2.0 release of Glyphfriend, but with the release of Visual Studio 2017 coming around the corner, there were a few things that could use some improvement and polishing off before then.Message received, loud and clear.All of the changes that were made to make the extension more flexible actually resulted in it being more noisy. Glyphfriend would just serve everything it knew about. This has generally been regarded as a bad move, and thus library filtering is...
  7. Resolving Installation Issues with Visual Studio 2017

    I’ve seen quite a few posts online regarding folks having issues installing Visual Studio 2017 after using previous versions of the IDE (such as the various pre-releases and RCs). If this sounds like you, then you might want to follow some of the steps in this blog post to ensure that your next install goes smoothly.Generally, the standard uninstall procedure should work as expected, so definitely try that before moving on. If that doesn’t work and you find yourself unable to install or update...
  8. Spring Cloud and Netflix Ribbon: Client-side Load Balancing

    Eventually you'll reach a point where you need to run multiple instances of an application or a service for high availability or to manage increased load. That's what load balancers are for. There's generally two different types:What many people would call a "load balancer" is actually a server-side load balancer. It can be implemented in hardware or software. The traffic is sent to a dedicated service that decides where to send the traffic, using an algorithm like round-robin, to one of the...
  9. Don't Fear Cloud Lock-In, Just Architect Differently

    I've worked with many different clients who are either on the verge of moving to the cloud, or who are in the cloud and are terrified that they will be "locked in" to a particular provider. A lot of these same clients have spent months or years just coming to the core decision to move to the cloud, let alone trying to implement solutions there. These fears usually rise up once an SDK is mentioned, and most often its always developers voicing these concerns. My experience has taught me these fears...
  10. How to embrace Azure and the Cloud

    For the last year, I have been meeting with customers and partners inside and outside the Microsoft ecosystem.I have talked with friends that are involved, at different levels, with IT whether Dev or Ops.I have been trying to explain what the public Cloud is, especially Azure, to many different people.Of course, I have been using the same evolution charts we all seen everywhere to illustrate my speech and explain where I believe we are headed.
