Web Deploy: How to see the command executed in Visual Studio during publish

I just saw a post on Twitter asking the question Is there any easy way to see the underlying MSBuild command when building in VS2010? Want to see the MSDeploy params. @ wdeploy ? One thing to know is that when you publish from Visual Studio, by default we use the MSDeploy (AKA Web Deployment Tool) Object Model in order to perform the deployment. We do this for performance and other reasons. Because of this there is no real msdeploy.exe command that is being issued. You can however change that behavior. This is controlled by an MSBuild property UseMSDeployExe which is false by default. In this case since Troy wants to see the command we will need to set that property to false. There are 2 ways in which you can do this. You can set it in the project...

Building the new PDC Trivia Application

The PDC trivia application (more generically called the Event Trivia or Conference Trivia app) is a full-screen web-delivered Silverlight application that displays trivia questions on the big screen in the time between breakout sessions at a conference. So far, it has been used at PDC09, MIX10, and PDC10. The previous versions had only trivia questions, and a very conference-themed display. The latest version, rewritten for PDC10, has a Halloween theme in recognition of the timing of the conference. The overall architecture for the runtime trivia portion hasn't changed, but the implementation details have. In addition, for the PDC2010 version, I added Twitter integration with tweets popping up as tombstones on the bottom half of the application...

Microsoft Folks Submit Grid model for HTML/CSS to the W3C.

Still using table for layout ? It’s not the preferred way. Modern Web Site development defines layout with CSS wherever possible. As we look forward to HTML5 and CSS 3 some of the folks in Dev Div are tooling for the new wave and immersed in the resulting ecosystem. Alex Mogilevsky , Phil Cupp , and Markus Mielke from  Microsoft, via the CSS Working Group have submitted a draft for CSS3 Grid Alignment. The official description says ….. CSS Grid Alignment Level 3 contains features that enable authors to align UI elements horizontally and vertically. By using the features in this module authors can position layout elements such as controls and application content into columns and rows, defining a grid structure with fixed, fractional, or...

Hello Netduino!

We’re makers, all of us, we build stuff for work and pleasure. Software development is a great discipline for people like us as the ticket to entry is relatively modest. All you need is a computer and that is pretty much it. There is no real limit to what you can do. Today, hobbyist electronics are blooming thanks to the availability of the universal logical components that are microcontrollers. Open-source hardware platforms such as the Arduino give anyone the ability to build pretty much anything they can think of for a few dozen dollars. Microcontrollers are for all practical intents and purposes small computers with a bunch of digital and analogic inputs and outputs. They are more powerful than the multi-hundred dollars Ataris and Commodores...
