Nouvelle façon de naviguer dans MSDN Magazine

Je ne sais pas si vous connaissez le magazine MSDN. Si vous êtes un développement .NET vous devez surement le connaître. Vous pouvez vous abonner à la revue papier par ce lien… ou vous pouvez consulter les articles en ligne ici.

Microsoft à mis en place le Pivote Viewer en silverlight qui permet de consulter plus de 2000 articles de MSDN en ligne. Vous pouvez voir le fonctionnement du Pivot Viewer en vidéo ici.

 

MSDN Magazine – Pivot Viewer from Aide-SharePoint.info on Vimeo.

Vous pouvez voir le site MSDN : http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/magazine/default.aspx

Voilà !

Nouvelle expérience de recherche – QWiki

Par l’entremise de Michel Roberge, j’ai découvert un nouveau moteur de recherche qui est très prometteur. Il agglomère, sur le thème recherché, les images, vidéo et information.

Il a été présente à TechCrunch:

Qwiki at TechCrunch Disrupt from Qwiki on Vimeo.

Vous pouvez voir des recherches types sur le site. Par exemple sur la ville de Tokyo. Trop nice !

Top 10 reasons C sharp is better than VB.NET

Let’s get practical, religion aside, with an eye on programmer productivity, here are the top 10 reasons why C# is better than VB.NET, in no particular order. If you have some other ones, let me know.

  1. In C# the line ends when I type the semicolon. The practical offshoot of this is that I write code like this:
    string sql = @"SELECT *
    		FROM SomeSuchTable
    		WHERE ID='WhatHaveYou'
    		ORDER BY ThisAndThatField ASC ";

    So when someone hands you a SQL statement you can just paste it into your code and the output (i.e. carriage returns) will still keep the format. In VB.NET, you would have to write the following to keep the formatting.

    dim sql as string = "SELECT *" & vbCrLf
    		sql += "FROM SomeSuchTable" & vbCrLf
    		sql += "WHERE ID='WhatHaveYou'" & vbCrLf
    		sql += "ORDER BY ThisAndThatField ASC "

    And that’s annoying.

  2. Increments/Decrements. a++;a–; ‘Nuff said
  3. I am not sure whether this is a valid reason, but with C# I can use Borland C# Builder which sports my beloved SDI interface, a la VB3, so that you can code full screen. This interface was also available (though not by default), in VB4,5,6 and VS.NET 2002 beta 1. The SDI interface disappeared from the VS.NET product before it shipped though. Anyway, if you miss that kind of interface, you can use it in Borland C# Builder.
  4. Error Catching. C# catches a lot more errors than VB.NET, such as uninitialized variables, dead code, etc…
  5. You get to act really snotty to VB.NET developers, yeah! That’s priceless.
  6. The source code to the C# compiler is available from Microsoft and Novell. This means that you can theoretically develop apps for OSes other than Windows, such as Linux and MacOS. Thanks to Jai Lue for this tidbit.
  7. C# has Operator Overloading (my favorite feature from C++). Though, via the grapevine, VB.NET will have this feature in VS 2005. Thanks to Aditya Vaze for this language delicacy.
  8. Comments in C# are just better. You can do multiline comments, XML comments, single line comments, etc… Thanks to German Voronin for this.
  9. Ah, I am still working on #10

Lenteur de FireFox…

Petit truc…

Si jamais vous trouvez votre navigateur lent (ex Firefox) lorsque vous être sur un site, par exemple de MSDN Magazine, il est fort probable que ce soit à cause d’une publicité Flash. Sur le site http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/magazine/cc163412.aspx par exemple, mon CPU est pris à 40%.

Pour contrer cela, en Firefox, je vous propose le plug-in AdBlock Plus (gratuit) qui permet de cacher toutes les publicités (à 98%) sur les sites web. Ainsi, votre CPU s’en portera mieux.

Have fun !

Erreur d’architecture

Partage d’un article intéressant…

Scoping Woes. "This is the sort of situation where a simple travel booking system ends up with full expense claim management facilities being built into it, with inevitable repercussions for project costs, timescales and quality…It is really true that no security is needed beyond simple login? Once logged into the system can users really perform any system operation?"

Not Casting Your Net Widely. "A related mistake that many of us have made is to focus on just a couple of our system stakeholders – classically the acquirer (who is paying for the system) and the end users get all of the attention."

Just Focusing on Functions. "…unless the system exhibits a whole range of qualities (such as performance, security, maintainability and so on) it is unlikely to be successful."

Box and Line Descriptions. "There are two reasons why the [single, all inclusive] huge Visio picture doesn’t work well as an architectural description: firstly, it’s trying to show too much information in a single representation, and secondly, no one is really sure quite what each of the different types of symbol that you’ve drawn mean."

Forgetting That It Needs to be Built. "Common things to watch out for related to building the system include designs that the developers or testers don’t really understand, technologies that they aren’t enthusiastic about or don’t have the time to learn, and new technologies that don’t yet have good tool support or perhaps impose a new and unfamiliar way of working."

Lack of Platform Precision."…its no longer sufficient to simply say that you “need Unix and Oracle” when specifying your platform. You need to be really precise about the specific versions and configurations of each part in order to ensure that you get what you need. This will allow you to avoid the situation where you can’t deploy your system because someone has helpfully upgraded a library for one part of the platform without realising that it means that something else will no longer work."

Making Performance and Scalability Assumptions. "Start considering performance and scalability early, create performance models to try to predict key performance metrics and spot bottlenecks and get stuck into some practical proof-of-concept work as your design ideas are forming. This will all help to increase confidence that there aren’t any performance and scalability demons lurking in your design."

DIY Security. "A mistake made in many systems over the years has been to try to add security into the system using “home brew” security technology. Be it custom encryption algorithms, a developer’s own auditing system or an entire DIY access control system, locally developed security solutions are rarely a good idea. While most of us think we could probably whip up a clever piece of security technology in no time, we’re usually wrong."

No Disaster Recovery. "The key to getting resources to implement a DR mechanism for your system is to be specific and quantify the cost of system unavailability in a number of realistic scenarios. If you can also estimate the probability of the scenarios occurring then you can use these two figures to convince people that DR is important and to justify a certain level of budget to implement it."

No Backout Plan. "Make sure that whatever happens during the deployment of your system or upgrade that you have a documented, reviewed and agreed backout plan to allow you to restore the environment to its state before you started deployment."
