  • Browse the .NET Reference Source

    Hi Robert,

    I tried both the F12 addin and the single stepping over .Net code technique, but both simply did not work for me.

    I have VS 2013 Ultimate 64, and I have JetBrains ReSharper and DevExpress CodeRush installed in my computer. For the testing I disabled ReSharper and unloaded CodeRush, but to no avail.

    I checked all the required conditions as outlined in the corresponding sites, but, again, it did not work.

    Am I missing something here?

    I would really like to be able to use these features because they seems to be very useful.

    May I have some help here?

    Thanks for your support,

  • Defrag Tools: #65 - Windows 8.1 - Jeffrey Richter - Windows Runtime via C#

    @LarryLarsen: My English is quite OK. I leaved in the USA for some years, and I spend at least one month every year in California. I speak English daily with my clients in the USA and with some local English-speaking clients too. Everything I write professionally is in American English. My native tongue is Brazilian Portuguese, but I also speak French, Italian, Spanish, and some Japanese.

    The problem is really his Australian English. However, I manage to understand it, only that it is somewhat hard sometimes to understand Andrew when he speaks very fast. Every now and then, I rewind the video for fully understanding him. Again, one does not want to miss anything he says, for it is always very interesting and useful. He is very knowledgeable and he is, for sure, the best one in his field.

  • Defrag Tools: #65 - Windows 8.1 - Jeffrey Richter - Windows Runtime via C#


    Excellent show, all always.

    Don't get me wrong, Andrew Richards is a true genius, but it somewhat hard to understand him sometimes.

    I would like to kindly suggest that he spoke a little bit slower, to make it easy for us (whose mother language is not English) to always understand him. The informations he conveys are priceless and I cannot afford to misunderstand them.

    Again, thanks for this superb show, that bring us very knowledgeable professionals as Andrew.

  • Entity Framework 5 and 6

    Hi Robert,

    As a fan of your show, I never miss one.

    I would like to offer a suggestion for an episode: Enterprise Library 6.0 (EL) compared to Entity Framework (EF).

    We use EL 6.0 in all our projects (VS 2012 / C# 5.0 / SQL Server 2012 / WinForm). We are under the impression that EF is an unnecessary layer that would cause costly delays during data access operations, and this has prevented us from considering it for data access in our projects.

    But, watching this episode about EF 5.0 / 6.0 our eyes popped-out to the perspective of having lots of benefits we do not have using EL 6.0. On the other side, there is a learning curve to deal with besides the performance problem.

    Many of my fellow developers have similar views.

    Thanks again and kudos for your show.

  • Episode 110 - Windows Azure BizTalk Services


    I am migrating my first app to Azure. It uses a pair of databases and there are 30 instances (29 stored procedures and one view) which use cross database queries.

    When I tried to publish my databases to an Azure counterpart the process always failed and the following error was shown:

    Reference to database and/or server name in '...' is not supported in this version of SQL Server.

    Is there any workaround besides combining both databases or rewrite the application code?

    Will Azure support cross database queries any time soon?

    Thanks in advance,

  • Ping 161: Scroogled, Xbox sales, Windows Store wins, IE 10 trolls

    I love your shows. I never miss one.

    Incidentally, I shot a picture of Laura during an interview on the Build 2012 party, in Bellevue. I thought you may like it: https://skydrive.live.com/redir?resid=8A4CCC942399F814!53364&authkey=!ANQ64K0red4-cR4.

    I bought an iPhone for my son, during my staying in WA. After seeing my Nokia 920 from the Build Conference, he now wants to get a Windows phone. We only have 3G around here in Brazil, no 4G yet, but Internet access is at least twice as faster in the Windows Phone than in the iPhone (4s). Screen size and battery life are also much better. And, of course, the hability to develop programs for Windows 8 in VS 2012 is priceless. The Apple 'intuitive' interface is not on par with Windows 8 Phone. It looks dated and it lacks the modernity of the W8 Phone interface.

    The only problem I noiced in my Nokia 920 set is that it gets quite warm after a few minutes of Internet navigation. It looks like the processor is overheating a little.

  • Channel 9 now has a Windows 8 app!

    This app is really nice, but I usually download the hires mp4 version of the videos to watch in my large screen plasma TV during lunch time and I couldn't find a link to download the files in this app.

    I use Window 8 CP in my production environment and if this app had the download links, it would be superb!

     Will you add the downloading feature to this app? 

  • GoingNative 0: Help us fly this plane, Some modern C++, Meet Ale Contenti

    Hi! Very interesting episode. I develop C# code, but I was a native developer before. I plan to go back to native soon. This renascence movement is inspiring me to so. A side note: you could get rid of the moving background. It makes me dizzy! Eduardo
  • Deploying Applications on Windows Azure

    This video is very fine! Very hands-on and useful.


    Unfortunately, as many other videos from Microsoft, the sound is extremely low. I had to download the file and reprocess it to increase the sound volume. You could check the sound volume of the videos before releasing them.


    Anyway, it was very well worth the trouble.
