One year ago I built an application data storage library, called PostgresDoc. The intent was, and is, to support document db semantics on top of relational databases. I have since renamed the project to SqlDoc to acknowledge that it now works with Postgresql and Sql Server. The strengths of SqlDoc compared to a dedicated document db are: works with your existing database server proper, multi-document transactions supports joins supports a hybrid document / relational model easy to project to flat views for reporting and ETL The strengths of SqlDoc compared to a relational database are: simple programming model No object / relational mapping New API I heard that people
like the IDocumentSession API from RavenDB so I’ve added it to SqlDoc. This will make life easier for people who want to do data access via a component provided from an IoC container. Creating a session var _documentSession = new DocumentSession(SqlConnection.From(connectionString)); Adding a document var _aDocument = new PersonCs { _id = Guid.NewGuid(), Name = "Docsesh", Age = 90, FavouriteThings = new[] { "Golf", "Statue of liberty" } }; _documentSession.Store(_aDocument._id, _aDocument); Updating a document _aDocument.Age += 1; _documentSession.Update(_aDocument._id, _aDocument); Deleting a document _documentSession.Delete(_aDocument._id, _aDocument); Persisting the unit of work _documentSession.SaveChanges(); Load by id var fresh = _documentSession.Load(id); Load by query var result = _documentSession.Query( "select...(Read whole news on source site)

Today we’re releasing Visual Studio 2015 Update 1. Let me be the first to thank everyone who installed these earlier releases, provided feedback, and helped us iron out the kinks. [The final release of Team Foundation Server Update 1 is also available today, which you can read about on Brian Harry's blog.] I’ve already shared many of the features that we introduced in the CTP and the release candidate (RC), and you can find a complete list of features in Update 1 in the Visual Studio Update 1 RTM Release Notes. Let me now highlight the final
additions made for RTM: New Visual Studio Icon. Responding to your feedback on UserVoice, we’ve tweaked the Visual Studio 2015 icon in Update 1 to make it easier to differentiate visually between multiple versions of Visual Studio running side by side on the same machine:
.NET Framework 4.6.1. Visual Studio 2015 Update 1 includes the latest version (4.6.1) of the .NET Framework. You can read about all the new features on the .NET blog. Editor support for new languages. The Visual Studio editor now provides built-in syntax highlighting and basic IntelliSense support for languages including Go, Java, Perl, R,...(Read whole news on source site)

Improving your build times with IncrediBuild and Visual Studio 2015

IncrediBuild is a software acceleration technology that allows builds, tests, and other development processes to execute in parallel over a distributed network. It works locally on your development box and over a build server, and can also make use of idle CPU cycles in other computers over the entire network. In addition, developers with Visual Studio can use IncrediBuild to scale to the cloud via Azure to add more computing resources, substantially increasing performance, speeding up build time, and improving overall developer productivity. IncrediBuild is used by many Visual Studio customers today and is seen as a leader in
the software acceleration technology space. Learn more about IncrediBuild at or through is short Connect video about IncrediBuild. With Visual Studio 2015 (both the RTM and Update 1 releases), developers see a Build Accelerator template in the File > New project dialog, which will install IncrediBuild:

By installing IncrediBuild in Visual Studio through the Build Accelerator template, you can leverage the following features free of cost (these were previously available only as a part of the paid IncrediBuild SKU): Predicted (Out of Order) Execution: Allows IncrediBuild to build more parallelized build plans by breaking down...(Read whole news on source site)

How to create a “Resolved by me” query in #JIRA dashboard?

You might have been heard about the product JIRA. It is a bug tracking product, developed by Atlassian. It can be used as general "issue tracker", “new feature request tracker” and more, rather than solely a bug tracker. It’s more customizable than BugZilla and queries also can be modifiable. Today in this small blog post, we will learn how to create a query to list down all the issues “Resolved by” a particular user or you. Continue reading to know more about it.   In JIRA dashboard, you will not find any filter to find out all the issues resolved
by you or a particular user. You will not find other options to change the filter too but you can easily customize it by writing JQL (JIRA Query Language) in the filter bar. Let’s see how to write it. Go to your JIRA dashboard and create a new filter. Click on the “Advanced” link as shown in the below screenshot:  Now the default filter configuration panel will change to a free text entry box, where you can write the JIRA query (JQL) to filter out the issues or tasks. Here’s the query to list all issues resolved by the current...(Read whole news on source site)
