Build a cool Windows Phone 7 app and you could be going to L.A. this July to showcase your app at the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference!
Friday fun. Have you watched the iPad 2 intro video? Have you find the style a little bit snooty? Even Conan O’Brien did a parody of it. Well while looking around for info on some countertop ovens, I stumbled upon a Breville video in the Apple style and yep, it’s not a parody!
The iPad 2 intro video. The Apple folks look so huggable.
The Breville one. No, that one is not a parody!
The Windows Azure Toolkit for Windows Phone 7 is now available. All the info can be found here.
Entity Framework 4.1 Release Candidate is now available. All the info can be found on the ADO.NET team blog.
Le blogue de l’équipe MSDN Canada est maintenant disponible en français.
We usually have between 40 and 80 people attending our regular meeting at the Montreal .NET Community. This week, we had a special Windows Phone 7 blitz with 2 meetings. The topics were very good: Tou.tv and Flickr apps development retro feedback from the teams who wrote them.
In the first meeting, RunAtServer discussed how they built the Tou.tv WP7 app for Radio-Canada. In the second meeting, nVentive discussed how they built the WP7 and Slate clients for Flickr.
Strangely, we had our lowest attendance in years with these 2 WP7 meetings. Lack of interest in WP7? Too early?
Confused about the installation sequence of VS 2010/TFS/SP1/Feature Pack clients and servers? Check Brian Harry’s great blog post where he lists the installation sequence for the clients and the servers.
I tried to install VS SP1 from the ISO (not the Web Installer) on a machine and ended up with a non successful install with the following error: Generic Trust Failure.
The log file said:
Possible transient lock. WinVerifyTrust failed with error: 2148204800

Since I didn’t want to download the 1.5GB ISO a second time, I tried the Web installer and this time it worked like a charm. Was the problem with a corrupt download or a file missing a signature I can’t say.
Visual Studio SP1 is now available along with these other VS enhancements/benefits:
- TFS-Project Server integration
- VS Load Test has now unlimited virtual users for load testing
- Availability of LightSwitch Beta 2
