Thank you to all of the amazing Microsoft Partners who joined us in Orlando for Worldwide Partner Conference 2015! As always, one of the biggest highlights of the entire event for me is being able to see and connect with you, our Microsoft partners and influencers from around the world, whether I knew you before or if this was my first time meeting you. In addition to having the opportunity to meet you, I love hearing the incredible stories you all share with me about yourselves, your companies, your successes and your plans for the future are inspiring and exciting
at the same time. Continuing on the now annual tradition that began several years ago as just an experiment (Connecting with others – A HUGE value of #WPC10 (Look who I found), I am very happy to bring you the collection of pictures from the Fantastic People of Worldwide Partner Conference 2015. For those not familiar with The Fantastic People of WPC concept, it is quite simple. Since building connections is such a huge value of WPC and for me, being fortunate enough to get to spend time with all of the partners from around the world, I...(Read whole news on source site)

In the last post of the Office 365 Groups for Admins series I showed you how to manage the Unified Groups using PowerShell. Let's continue on that journey and take a look at how you can manage the Group memberships using PowerShell. All membership management are done using the *-UnifiedGroupLinks cmdlets, you can access them using PowerShell and connecting to Exchange Online as shown in the previous post. The cmdlets is at the moment that well documented. If that changes I'll make sure to update this post (and please remind me). Public vs Private Groups Before we
dive into Memberships let's take a look at Public vs Private Groups, something you configure when creating the Group. In Public Groups anyone within your Organization can participate in discussions and access its content, whereas in Private Groups you have to be a member. Listing members of Groups First of all assume that we want to list the members of a Group. There are three types of Memberships in Office 365 Groups: Members Owners Subscribers To show all the Members of a Group issue the following command:Get-UnifiedGroupLinks -Identity "XT1000 Marketing" -LinkType "Members" The LinkType parameter can be...(Read whole news on source site)

Pointer arithmetic and dynamic HTML generation FTW–at 2 AM

I just finished writing the following code, the time is 2 AM local time, and I am chasing a conceptual issue deep in the guts of Voron (RavenDB’s internal storage system). By any measure of the word, this code should frighten anyone who reads it. For what I think can we can all safely assume are self evident reasons. So why am I so very happy about this kind of code? Because the output of this code is this: This is pretty trivial tree view for internal data structures inside of Voron. But the point
here isn’t that this code is probably going to be a no-go zone by tomorrow morning. This is code explicitly designed for that. In fact, the calling method for this is: So this is a piece of code that we are trying very hard to ensure that will never be called unless we are actively requesting it in a debug session. In other words, this isn’t production code. It is scaffolding code. The code that you’ll call when you lost your way, and can no longer figure out what is going on using the standard tools. This kind...(Read whole news on source site)

Today we are making Entity Framework 7 Beta 6 available. EF7 will be the next major release of Entity Framework and it is currently in pre-release. Still very much a preview EF7 introduces some significant changes and improvements over EF6.x and therefore the pre-release phase of EF7 is much longer than other recent releases.

addressed before RTM.

“Sideways overriding” with partial methods

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
First note: this blog post is very much tongue in cheek. I’m not actually planning on using the idea. But it was too fun not to share. As anyone following my activity on GitHub may be aware, I’ve been quite a lot of work on Protocol Buffers recently – in particular, a mostly-new port for … Continue reading “Sideways overriding” with partial methods →
