Loved the talk but I was curious why not use something similar to ODATA URI\URL Conventions instead of just paths? That should still allow for a easy resource based caching strategy but with some more query ability other than just paths. What do you gain with just paths?
"Show Me The Cache" Achievement still BROKEN!!! I've been waiting to get this thing forever please fix ASAP!!! It's the only one I need. I have all the rest. I did this many times with the Azure 1.6 and it never worked and I was told it was a bug and would be fixed in the next achievement release. Now I'm using Azure 1.7 and the latest achievement release and I tried the "shared" cache which is the old way of doing it and I also tried the new cache preview and neither unlocked this achievement. What's the point of Achievements if some are really un achievable.
Here is the link where karstenj says it's a bug with the cache url. PLEASE FIX THIS ASAP!!
My IE10 crashes within a few minutes of opening two or more tabs. I have a NVIDIA Geforce 560 Ti 2Gb. I did this on Consumer Preview as well. I was hoping Release Preview would fix it but it did not. Also weird enough it did not do this on Developer Preview. Please fix this in time for the final release. Thanks.
Why did you use Task.Factory.StartNew and call the query.Execute() instead of using Task.Factory.FromAsync and calling ExecuteAsync(). Wouldn't this perform better and look pretty much identical? Thanks.
I love ad-hoc\duck typing. I think this is one of the best features in Go. In C# it is very painful to get something close to duck typing\ad hoc interfaces without a lot of performance penalties.. I usually switch over to F# and static ^ types for my structural typing needs. One of the biggest problems with any large code base in almost any language in my opinion are these weird object hierarchies that only the original designer can understand. (or maybe no one can understand) The Managed Extensibility Framework (MEF) in an early preview version had great duck typing support but in the recent versions it has been removed. I wish it was still there.
