  1. Simplify, Shorten and Speed Up Your LINQ Statements with "Let" (blog.nitriq.com) — I've been writing a lot of LINQ statements lately while working on Nitriq and have come across a pretty cool LINQ keyword - "let". It allows you to specify an intermediate calculation that can be referenced multiple times else where in your LINQ statement, including the where and select clauses...
  2. Entity Framework 4.0 POCO Classes and Data Services — If you've flipped on the POCO (Plain Ol' CLR Objects) code generation T4 templates for Entity Framework to enable testing or just 'cuz you like the code better, you might find that you lack the ability to expose that same model via Data Services as OData (Open Data). If you surf to the feed, you'll likely see something like this...

  5. C# 4.0/BCL 4 Series: System.Tuple — I mentioned, in my last post, that I was using C# 4.0 In A Nutshell to better my C# 3 and to come up to speed with C# 4/BCL 4. Another cool thing in Framework 4.0 is the generic set of classes for holding a set of differently typed objects called tuples. Like the Func<> and Action<> delegates, tuples also take up to 8 parameters...
  6. Use Extension method to write cleaner code — This blog post will show you step by step to refactoring some code to be more readable (at least what I think).

  1. 5 CSS Methods to Style a Block with Background — There are a lot of solutions to style a block with background.

  2. jQuery - Handling Events using jQuery — Most websites these days are pretty cut and dry. The only interaction that occurs is when a link is clicked or a form is submitted. On occasion you may see a navigation item change when the mouse "rolls over" it. The web doesn't have to be this boring though! In the past you had to jump through hoops to add more interaction to your website, but with jQuery...
  3. Understanding CSS Specificity — CSS Specificity is the litmus test used to decide which of the ‘cascading’ styles in CSS will ultimately take precedence when the page is rendered in the browser.

  4. jQuery Templates and Data Linking (and Microsoft contributing to jQuery) — Two years ago I announced that Microsoft would begin offering product support for jQuery, and that we’d be including it in new versions of Visual Studio going forward. By default, when you create new ASP.NET Web Forms and ASP.NET MVC projects with VS 2010 you’ll find jQuery automatically added to your project...
  5. AJAX in 5 minutes using jQuery — One thing that really amazes me is how people can write an entire book on AJAX. It's a truly simple thing. It shouldn't even be a topic on its own, it should maybe be a subchapter in a book on Javascript or something. Anyway I'll show you how to use AJAX in 5 minutes using jQuery. You should usually use a library like jQuery (or others like Prototype or Mootools, use whichever you like the most) since using AJAX with regular old Javascript...

Visual Studio

  1. — I read a blog the other day about the /nosplash switch in Visual Studio. Apparently, it's been around a while and I'm a little late on finding out about it. I figured I'd share it for those of you that come across this and didn't know about it as well. Basically all it does is turn off the Visual Studio splash screen which speeds up initial startup time...
  2. Visual Studio Gives You Tooltip Support with Resource Files — For the past year or so I’ve been working on projects that have users who do not use English as their primary language. The users for the applications I’ve been working on actually live in Mexico while I’m up in the States. I get a decent amount of my email in Spanish these days, but no...
  3. Visual Studio 2010 Keyboard Shortcut Posters Available — I’m a firm believer in the productivity gains you experience when using keyboard shortcuts in Visual Studio.

  1. — ...Debug It! — If there’s one thing I like about programming computers, it’s the ability to tell a machine exactly what to do. –insert Skynet reference here– With that said, I wanted to learn some more tips, tricks and techniques to figure out what exactly computers are doing when they’re misbehaving. I decided to grab a copy of Debug It! by Paul Butcher just to see what a whole book on debugging could possibly...
