Thank you to everyone who attended Ken and mine’s workshop on April 18, 2011 at VSLive in Las Vegas.
You can obtain updated slides from the conference downloads site.
I’ve posted a zip file on my SkyDrive for you to download which includes our license, docs, and source files.
Please return to this post as we may more or update the zip in the future.
Update: reminder, you’ll need to get your own flickr developer key to work with the sample.
The Globals.cs file in the Common Library source has commented out variables that you need to update before the code with compile and run.
Thanks again for coming!
Brian and Ken
I’m doing a talk today at DevConnections in Orlando, FL today. The talk is primarily about all the yummy goodness that Microsoft ships out of band from the core Visual Studio product boxes. In addition, I cover what’s in the SKUs above Visual Studio 2010 Professional edition—Premium and Ultimate.
So here’s a list of the items I either showed a demo of, or mentioned.
Feature of SKU means it’s in the box.
Benefit means you get it if you have the SKU and valid MSDN Subscription
N/A under Minimum SKU means it works with command-line tools or doesn’t technically require Visual Studio 2010 to work
I had the need today to run two copies of Microsoft Test Manager (aka MTM.EXE) so that I could copy data from a Test Case from one Team Project to another. Unfortunately, MTM.EXE is a single-instance application. I considered a few different options including RDP to another machine or account. Thankfully, I got a great tip from a fellow VS ALM geek, Anna Russo.
The trick you ask? Duplicate MTM.EXE and MTM.EXE.CONFIG and rename. I chose to create MTM2.EXE and MTM2.EXE.CONFIG. And there you go, two instance of MTM running side-by-side.
Thanks Anna for the tip. You’ll find MTM.EXE at %Program Files%\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\IDE. You’ll of course need Administrator rights to duplicate the files in that directory.
Thanks to everyone who came out to my workshop yesterday. I had a great time.
Here's the slides (zipped PDF) for your enjoyment.
Thanks again and I hope to make it down again sooner than later.
