  • Azure Service Fabric 101 - Introduction

    Service fabric is going to rock!  the azure scenario is great of course but what's really exciting to me is the private cloud and also mixed cloud scenarios. if they deliver on what they initially promised you could have a single azure fabric consisting of an azure vm, a local vm and an aws vm, since service fabric is just something you install on a windows machine.

    I really hope we'll hear more about service fabric soon, in server 2016 TP3 there is a mysterious "Service fabric" role for example. as i sometimes put my devops hat on i'm really curious about how you run these things yourself :)

    Comparing to containers, i think they could be combined actually, you can probably run a service fabric node inside a container if you'd like, if for example the app isn't trusted. What service fabric gives you though is that automatic deployment, load balancing and failover, so its more high level than a straight up container


  • Memory Compression in Windows 10 RTM

    @mehmeti:That is what they claimed anyway, (that something in windows insider builds related to memory broke some feature in chrome) but i dont know if that was actually the case or not.

    The reason i asked is because there was an article on insider announcements for TH2 about memory compression and i thought since they brought it up is was a new feature


  • Memory Compression in Windows 10 RTM

    I read somewhere that memory compression was changed in TH2 (breaking chrome for a while) was that something in addition to this stuff? would be fun to hear more details about that :)

  • The future of Entity Framework (EF7)

    I think EF7 is going to be great but you should really consider calling it EF light or something, not EF7, its really no a representative name, its not an evolution of EF6 and EF6 will still be used alot after EF7 comes out.

    EF light would be alot more cler and also not give the message that  EF6 is not useful to anyone anymore

  • Project Centennial": Converting your Classic Windows App (Win32, .Net, COM) to a Universal Windows App for Distribution in the Windows Store

    Suppose i make an appx that is not deployed to the store, i wonder how the updates will work then.. can you supply like an alternate url for it to look for updates?

  • Hacking Augmented Reality with Kinect

    so windows holographic seems extremely related to this, do you see windows holographic being used as an os/frontend/whatever for this?


  • Developing for HoloLens

    i know they're pushing hololens as a wireless device but i hope there is an option to run tetherd as well to take advantage of more powerful graphics in desktop hardware

  • MCP Insider Series - AMA with Jeffrey Snover: (02) MCP Insider Series - AMA featuring Jeffrey Snover (Part II)

    Just a follow up on the guid thing, i see the reasoning for having a key to identify a machine but my question was really if that key really had to be a guid or just any text (and now i know!) it's not a big deal, just a mild inconvenience when you're setting up a pull server configuration.

    In the dsc MVAs you mention having the same config id on multiple machines and how in those cases the config id can be thought of as the "webserver" configuration for example. well i was thinking in those cases, why can't i just call it "webserver" then :)

    Oh well, i'm in the process of writing my own pull server that will have some extra features where i can abstract that stuff away, witch i guess is the point. But it does make pull servers and "pure" dsc a little bit harder to get into :)

  • Advanced PowerShell Desired State Configuration (DSC) and Custom Resources: (04) Using Classes to Build a Custom Resource

    Really really hope you enable writing class based dsc resources in c# as well :)

  • ASP.NET 5: Deep Dive


    .net core is basically a cross platform version of .net, with a clr and a specific subset of libraries (and support for portable libraries)

    With .net core you have an option to compile your code directly to native code, also compiling away all the stuff in .net your program isnt using and performing whole program optimization. that process is called .net native.

    So .net core is a smaller portable version of .net and .net native is a technology to compile .net core programs to native code and also do a bunch of optimizations
