This article will focus on achieving build automation using TFS. However, if you want to understand the architecture, configuration, project creation, product backlog, managing SPRINT and releases etc. you can go through these articles
This article will briefly describe the high-level architecture of Team Foundation Server. It will help you understand the different tiers in TFS, their responsibilities and firewalls.
Heard of TFS as a Service, what is it?
TFS as a Service is a cloud-based application life management (ALM) system that integrates source control management, product backlog, build [...]
ASP.Net is a GREAT platform to build rich, interactive web based application and services. It provides many useful features like authentication, authorization, session handling, HTTP request handling, routing, bundling and minification, friendly URLs etc. You might have seen below diagram in many presentations from Microsoft, which highlights core pieces of ASP.Net web stack. Sites section [...]
No enterprise application exists without a method, event, delegate and every developer would have written methods in his/her application. While defining these methods/delegates/events, we follow a standard definitions. Apart from these definitions there are some best practices that one should follow to ensure that method does not leave any object references, other methods are called [...]
One of the hot topics of discussion in building enterprise applications is whether one should use JSON or XML based serialization for
data serialization and deserialization data storage data transfer
To illustrate these aspects, let’s write some code that can help build the facts. Our code will involve creating an entity User
public class User [...]
In Windows 8, when hosting WCF in a managed application running under a normal user privileges and NetTcp binding, you might get an exception
Verify that the current user is granted access in the appropriate allowAccounts section of SMSvcHost.exe.config
This is due to enhanced security in Windows 7+ operating systems.
There are 3 ways to [...]
One of the questions that lot of developers ask is – Is there any difference between string and System.String and what should be used?
There is no difference between the two. You can use either of them in your code.
System.String is a class (reference type) defined the mscorlib [...]
When running WCF services on Windows 7+ (actually, includes Vista too) operating systems when you write a simple code at the service side to open the service host, most users experience this issue
There are several approaches in understanding the encoding mechanism. The approach we will take today is to see data conversion and storage using bytes. Since most of our communication happens in text (or string), we will look into string-> byte conversion. Later this byte array can be transferred over network or stored in a data [...]
Azure Cloud Services support 2 types of roles viz. Web Role and Worker Role (VM Role is retired on May 31st 2013). Web Role is used for web application, web APIs etc. and Worker Role are used to perform background/asynchronous tasks. These are non persistent VMs that Azure spins up on demand with not extract [...]
