You might have noticed that we have been doing a lot of work on the operational side of things. To make sure that we give you as good a story as possible with regards to the care & feeding of RavenDB. This post isn’t about this. This post is about your applications and systems, and how you are going to react when !@)(*#!@(* happens. In particular, the question is what do you do when this happens? This situation can crop up in many disguises. For example, you might be seeing a high memory usage in production, or experiencing growing
CPU usage over time, or see request times go up, or any of a hundred and one different production issues that make for a hell of a night (somehow, they almost always happen at nighttime) Here is how it usually people think about it. The first thing to do is to understand what is going on. About the hardest thing to handle in this situations is when we have an issue (high memory, high CPU, etc) and no idea why.

StorageHelper - For Windows Phone + Silverlight app developers

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
Few months ago, I wrote a small helper class for all my Windows Phone Silverlight applications, which helped me a lot to store and retrieve data to and from IsolatedStorageSettings. Thus I thought to share the same with you, in case you find it useful. Read more to  find out the code, which you can use freely. Here the only catch is: it works only with the Silverlight type applications.
  The helper class consists of three methods named “StoreSetting”, “GetSetting” and “RemoveSetting”. As the name suggests, the said methods will help you to save, retrieve and delete your
data to and from Isolated Storage Settings. Please find below the complete source code which will work with Windows Phone Silverlight type applications, but I will try to provide another code snippet quite soon to help you work with Universal apps. 
namespace KunalChowdhury.Helpers {     using System.IO.IsolatedStorage;       public class StorageHelper     {         public static bool StoreSetting(string key, object value)         {             if (IsolatedStorageSettings.ApplicationSettings.Contains(key)) ...(Read whole news on source site)
