On 4 November, 2013 07:00:37, in Visual Studio 2013, by Dirk Strauss

Visual Studio 2013 Breakpoint Labels – The ability to add labels to breakpoints has been around since Visual Studio 2010, but I was until recently unaware of this feature. How could this be possible? Well I maintain that as a general rule, many developers learn just enough to get them by. After that they accidentally discover new features.

This is quite believable because the Visual Studio IDE is very feature rich. So how do Visual Studio 2013 Breakpoint Labels help us? Well, for the following reasons.

Prosecuting Edward Snowden Featured

Prosecuting Edward Snowden – The story of intrigue and spy vs spy. There is a lot to say about the subject, and no matter what your personal point of view is on the matter, he will probably be caught. Bruce Schneider writes a great article on Prosecuting Snowden. If you don’t read it at the Featured Link below, here is an excerpt:

“…many people who have been involved in such matters believe Snowden will be caught. Because no matter how much he may love sticking it to the U.S. government and waving the banner of truth, justice, and freedom of speech, that mission will prove largely unsustainable without serious fundraisers, organizers and dedicated allies working on his behalf for a long time.

They’ll have to make Edward Snowden their living, because those who are chasing him already have. Government agents will be paid every minute of every day for as long as it takes. Seasons may change and years may pass, but the odds say that one morning, he’ll look out of a window, go for a walk or stop for a cup of coffee, and the trap will spring shut. It will be almost like a movie.”

Have a great day today. Here is The Daily Six Pack!

Energy Consumption Tool Featured

Energy Consumption Tool in Visual Studio 2013 aims to solve a very real problem, and one that I am sure that most of us as developers don’t give a second thought to. If your applications are battery hungry, this will quickly result in bad customer experience. To keep your application’s energy consumption at optimal levels, it is important that you can have a way to profile consumption. Charles Sterling talks about the Energy Consumption Tool in Visual Studio 2013 as well as the performance and diagnostics hub which enables you to fine tune your app for optimal Energy Consumption.

Sean Sexton then shares a great C# tip with regards to getting information about the throwing exception. Have a look at his blog post below. Then Zack Grammana talks about consuming Dropbox’s new Datastore API in C#. This is something I am sure will be of interest to many.
