"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.
@milgner I think this would be a blocking wait and it think it will only work in Metro style apps. I was really hoping for a await language feature in C++ that would do the auto continuation (state machine) kind of thing like C# (Non Blocking). Herb mentioned having this language feature possibly in the future with his talk here http://channel9.msdn.com/Events/Lang-NEXT/Lang-NEXT-2012/-Not-Your-Father-s-C-
It took a while for that video to go up so I was completely unaware that Herb was already thinking about await as a C++ language extension or I would not have mentioned it again. Thanks all language guys at Lang.Next, I've been very impressed.
@hsutter I'm so excited to hear you talking about a possible await language feature for C++. And now I just read your comments about a possible safe mode, I'm running out of reasons to choose C# over C++ on many types of projects now.
Every time I hear Andrei Alexandrescu talk it makes me want to start programming in D. What a great technical salesman. I think this is a great comparison between two amazing languages on opposite sides of the spectrum. Too bad Lang.Next its only once a year, it's like Christmas for me!!
More like this please. Carl Hewitt is brilliant!! Also thanks so much Clemens for the summation at the end, it was very helpful. And always Erik was great; I had many of the same thoughts like tail recursion and event loops basically being the same thing. I would love to see some specific examples of where these break down as compared to the actor model. I still don't 100% understand the distinction in my head. Thanks guys.
