Free DNC .NET Magazine Anniversary Issue & GiveAway

May 2013 .NET DNC Magazine

Dear Friends,

Time really flies! Hard to believe that it’s already 6 years since we started and 12 months since we started DNC Magazine. Yes, it is our Anniversary and everyone’s welcome to this virtual party!

In this anniversary edition, we are featuring articles on ASP.NET MVC extensibility, Azure SQL DB and Reporting, SharePoint and OData, Microsoft Pex Framework and more. We have a unique combination where we mix TFS + Android up. We have more on two Hot OSS projects – one enables you to use C# in ways not done before – the ScriptCS project and the second lets you look deep into your ASP.NET applications – the Glimpse project. Plus we have another take on the age old problem of paginating and sorting tabular data, this time we wield the power of Knockout to slay it! Last but not least we take a look at an Open Spec called OWIN and see how it is leveraged in SignalR’s self-hosting scenario!

Once again, we thank our fabulous contributors Filip W, Mahesh Sabnis, Pravinkumar Dabade, Raj Aththanayake , Subodh Sohoni, Sumit Maitra and Suprotim Agarwal without whose time and efforts this issue wouldn't have been possible.

Now with the usual stuff aside, here is how you get into the party!
