Ajax Control Toolkit Featured

Ajax Control Toolkit release for July brings performance improvements to the fore. This July release of the Ajax Control Toolkit introduces Control Bundles. To take advantage of this and other performance features, you need to do two things. Create an AjaxControlToolkit.config file to list all the controls used on your site and you have to register the AjaxControlToolkit.CombineScriptsHandler in the web.config file. Read more in the featured link below.

James Michael Hare talks about getting caller information in his excellent C#/.NET Little Wonders post. To view this series in total, see the collection here. I suggest you bookmark this page. It does come in handy more often than you may think.

Welcome to a new week folks. May it be a successful one for you. Here is The Daily Six Pack!

Redmine Featured Daily Six Pack

Redmine is such an awesome web app. It is a flexible project management app that was written on the Ruby on Rails framework. It is also open source and released under the terms of the GNU General Public License v2 (GPL). I have been using it for a few days already and I have to say it does exactly what I want. I installed it locally on my dev machine using the BitNami Redmine Stack which provides a one-click install solution for Redmine. You can download installers, virtual machines or run your own Redmine server in the cloud.

Next, if you haven’t been introduced to CodeProject.TV yet I would like to make that introduction. I have watched a few sessions and the quality of the content is superb. If you need to learn something you know little of, I can think of no better place than CodeProject.tv for a direct tech injection. Then if you’re a .net developer, unless you have been living under a rock, you will know that Visual Studio 2013 Preview is available. Robert Green has a nice video on Channel 9.

Lastly, Visual Studio 2012 Update 3 is available for download. According to Microsoft: “Visual Studio 2012 Update 3 contains improvements for project compatibility between Visual Studio 2012 and Visual Studio 2013 Preview, and resolves compatibility issues for Visual Studio 2012 on Windows 8.1“. If you want to use Visual Studio 2012 on Windows 8.1, get Update 3.

It’s Friday, finally! Have a great day! Here is The Daily Six Pack!

Programming Skills Featured

Programming Skills are essential to every programmer out there. But there is something that no school or institution can teach you. To become better at what you do with regards to programming, you first need to learn how to become a better person. The reason for this is that you need to interact with people first and foremost before you write a single line of code. If you suck at interacting with people, how can you do something as simple as gathering requirements for a system you are about to develop?

Fran Hoey touches on some non-coding skills that will surely make you a better programmer. Then you can also have a look at my previous blog post: IT Professionals, An Evolutionary Tale. Check it out for a cool infographic on the evolution of the IT Pro.

You can also have a look at the post by Arron on the web on becoming an Elite Developer. Lots of these posts are intertwined and we as professionals should take note of them. Then, we have a sneak peek at Internet Explorer 11 being released with Windows 8.1 (hands up all who are giddy with excitement over that one) and lastly Jeff Blankenburg shares an awesome post on what is on his desk. It says a lot about a person and seeing what other developers have going on in their work space is another opportunity for the rest of us to learn.

Well that is all that I have for today, I hope that you all have a fantastic Tuesday! Here is The Daily Six Pack!

Today’s xkcd comic is a classic. I hate standing in queues, so I usually immerse myself with tech (i.e. surf the web, StumbleUpon, Tweet etc) But this guy takes a different approach!
