Visual Studio 2012 and .NET 4.5 Expert Development CookbookVisual Studio 2012 and .NET 4.5 Expert Development Cookbook – Being a programmer, I love technology related books. (Any programmer that doesn’t read is flawed. Sorry, it’s a fact, you will never grow.) I try to read as often as I can. I enjoy reading on-line, easily digestible content and therefore the more concise an article is, the better.

But with books, I often find that I simply scan through them because the content is so long winded or doesn’t get to the juicy bits quickly enough. If it were a spy novel, sure… build suspense, but don’t do that in a tech book I’m reading.

I want the information presented in an easy manner that is easy to understand or explained well. I am probably the most fussy of readers out there. Nicky Scrooby is a journalist friend of mine and that girl reads a lot. I doubt that I would ever come close to her with the sheer volume of books she reads. But nevertheless, I do try get a healthy dose of tech via well written books.

Programming ASP.NET using visual C sharpThe last two weeks I have been developing an application that creates Sales Orders from a web interface. The application is used to return damaged watches and sunglasses to the repair centre.

It creates a Sales Order entry in SYSPRO and makes use of various custom fields to store data not available in SYSPRO. The application wasn’t very complicated, but did take a few days to complete.

During this development, I came across a nice quick tip (see reference below) when browsing ASP.NET pages in Visual Studio that allows you to specify that you need to browse with a Browser (IE in this case) sans the add-ons. I wanted to share this here.
