Visual Studio 2013 UI Featured

Visual Studio 2013 UI changes seem imminent. This obviously means that developers of Visual Studio extensions are really going to love Microsoft after the latest change. Luckily the change isn’t radical at all (not that I minded the Visual Studio 2010 UI) but I do think that the Visual Studio 2013 UI changes could have taken a back seat to fixing VS performance etc.

Martin Hinshelwood then talks about installing Visual Studio 2013 on Server 2012. He provides some really great screenshots and great explanations. So be sure to check out his post below.

Monday has started, so go grab your cup of coffee and take 5 minutes before jumping in to work! Here is The Daily Six Pack.

iOS Succinctly – Syncfusion’s Free Ebook Reviewed

On 19 June, 2013 07:00:11, in Reviewed, by Dirk Strauss

iOS succinctly free ebook syncfusioniOS Succinctly by Syncfusion is one of the most concise books on iOS I have read. It is the second book in a two-part series on iPhone and iPad app development. Objective-C Succinctly was the initial book and it covered Objective-C and core data structures used by virtually all iOS applications.

iOS Succinctly obviously assumes that you know Objective-C and am basically familiar with the Xcode integrated development environment (IDE). Both of these books are written by Ryan Hodson, so they obviously compliment each other perfectly.

iOS was designed with security in mind. Unlike other mobile operating systems (cough*Android*cough) iOS will not give your application access to the Apple device’s entire file system. iOS gives every application its own separate file system. This is also called sandboxing. What this means is that your application will not have access to files used and generated by other applications.

IntelliTrace Featured

IntelliTrace is a new feature introduced by Microsoft in Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate (Yes believe it or not, not everyone is using Visual Studio 2012 yet). It was previously known as Historical Debugger. IntelliTrace is a tool that helps developers track down bugs that might not be reproducible in their managed code apps. Think of as an example, those that appear only once because of a web service error or a system issue. See more in the featured link.

Then, (as everyone knows) many shiny new things were unveiled at Google’s I/O recently. What was also announced was a brand new IDE that has been built with the needs of Android developers in mind. Called Android Studio, this free IDE is available now for you to try as an early access preview.

Lastly, my wife has just made me go white with fear as I realized how gullible people really are. She received a mail from the South African Revenue Service stating that an amount of money has been paid into her account. She still told me jokingly that she could see from the email address that it was a spam mail. [Scare Alert - Enter Scary Music Now] She also told me that she clicked on the link in the mail because she was curious to see what it did. I am convinced… WE are our own worst security risk. I think I need to write a blog post on this. Anyway, Troy Hunt brings us some more excellent security advice, so give that article of his a read.

Have a great day today! I am off to go and educate the wifey on good security practices. Here is The Daily Six Pack!
