Have you attended a Connect(“Live”); event? What? You haven’t? Well, then, here’s the details: These events are 1-hour long, informal, live-streaming chats with the product teams, providing you an opportunity to ask questions and share feedback. Every few weeks we’ll bring a new team for an open mic Q&A session. Recently, on the 26th of February, we held our first Connect(“Live”) event with the Debugging and Cloud Diagnostics team; later, on March 23rd, we gave the floor to the Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) team.

Scheduled build launches an hour early on TFS 2013 (after installing Update 3 or 4)

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
We use our own TFS server and were using TFS 2013 Update 2 up until last Tuesday. We have several build definitions for my current project, and most of them are scheduled at a specific time, because we have specific times for automatic deployment. Up until Tuesday, everything seemed to work well and the Builds ran at the specified time (both before and after Daylight Saving Time applied). And then I installed Update 4… The issue After installing Update 4, our scheduled builds ran an hour early. Of course I checked both the time on the server and the time
the build was scheduled for: these were fine. I looked at the Update 4 documentation, but couldn’t find anything related. I did see however the build server report its time setting as UTC +01:00, and the build definition stating UTC +02:00.Next up was searching the web, which pointed me to an article on Scheduled build launched 1 hour earlier. As a comment on this article, which is from July last year, Microsoft employee Mario mentions the issue is fixed in the (at that time) RC of the Summer Update. He also mentions: Once you install that Update on the...(Read whole news on source site)

RAD Studio XE8 has been released

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
I’m quite sure that if you are an Embarcadero RAD Studio fan, you know that XE8 was released yesterday. According to the email from Embarcadero notifying me, it was released at 12:01am – cue an old story my Dad used to tell me that the British Army never planned anything for 12:00am or 12:00pm because no one knew which one was noon and which one was midnight. Whereas one minute past the hour? No problem. Anyway, if you’ve already downloaded and installed it, you may be turning to DevExpress to see whether the latest release of our VCL Subscription
supports it. Coincidentally, we released v14.2.5 of the VCL Subscription overnight too. Unfortunately, our releases clashed and v14.2.5 does not have that all important support for XE8. (After all, we get the new version of RAD Studio at roughly the same time as everyone else.) So this is a placeholder post to say, yes, we’re now testing our VCL code against the official RAD Studio XE8 release and, yes, you will be getting that support in a few days in a new minor version – v14.2.6 – of your active subscription. Stay tuned!...(Read whole news on source site)

Visual Studio Toolbox: Cloud Enable a WPF LOB App Part 2a

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
In this episode, the first half of the second of two parts (in other words, part 2a :)), I continue exploring how you can modernize your existing WPF line of business applications and move to the cloud. The demo app uses WCF and SQL Server. In part 1, I showed how to move the app's data to Azure SQL and how to publish the WCF service to an Azure Web site. In this episode, I show how to add authentication using Azure Active Directory and require users to sign in. This episode is based on a module in the Cloud-Enable a
Windows Presentation Foundation LOB App course on the Microsoft Virtual Academy. That course goes into much more detail, particularly on Azure. The sample code and the scripts used are available at Check the Readme.txt file for the latest updates.
