FREE DNC Magazine for .NET Developers - 12th Issue (May-June 2014)

May 2014 .NET DNC Magazine

The lyrics were old, but the song was a new one - Windows Everywhere, Windows Everywhere ♫. The recently concluded Microsoft Build conference portrayed a newer vibrant Microsoft, prepared to take on the future!

Cortana (a Bing powered, voice controlled assistant for Windows Phone and a Siri rival) took the centerstage as Microsoft updated Windows, Windows Phone, MSOffice, Visual Studio, Azure and more. With the news of ‘Universal apps’ running on every Microsoft device, a free version of the Windows OS for phones and tablets under 9-inches, a new version of Windows for ‘Internet of Things’ devices; it is indeed Windows Everywhere 2.0 - a comeback song, by a humbler Microsoft!

Good things come in pairs. In this edition, Mahesh Sabnis covers the latest Visual Studio 2013 Update 2 RC for Web Devs as well as ASP.NET Identity 2.0. In our Software Gardening column, Craig Berntson takes the Light and Sunshine analogy to explain why and how as a developer, you must take responsibility for your skills and career.

This month we have Ravi Kiran joining our exclusive club of authors, with a wonderful article showing how to build Single Page Applications (SPA) using AngularJS and TypeScript. Welcome Ravi!

Plus we have SharePoint Web Parts using AngularJS and Knockout, Extending jQuery UI, PowerShell for Backups and an awesome comparison of Coded UI Tests with UFT (a.k.a QTP), to pin to your soft board.

And once again, we thank our fabulous contributors Craig Berntson, Gouri Sohoni, Gregor Suttie, Mahesh Sabnis, Pravinkumar Dabade, Ravi Kiran, Suprotim Agarwal without whose time and efforts this edition wouldn't have been possible.
