Tiny house

19 Mar

Is this the future or a crazy idea? Kinda like the idea about small, simple and focus on the most important values. But is it realistic?

Free books from Syncfusion

15 Feb

Syncfusion is one the companies providing qualified products and material to developers all over the world. I have used their components in several of my Windows Phone and Windows Store applications.

Syncfusion offer several free e-books written by talented experts who are personally selected by Syncfusion. The goal for each book is to take 500+ pages of information on topics such as ASP.NET MVC, jQuery, HTTP, etc., and condense it to about 100 pages of essentials.

Personally I recommend the updated version of their white paper “Windows 8: What It Means for Development Decisions Today and in the Future”.

Windows Developers in Denmark

1 Mar

Jeg bruger en del tid på at drive et par af de danske brugergruppe – herunder den danske brugergruppe for Windows Phone udviklere.

Brugergruppen har rundet 450 udviklere og har fået afholdt en serie af events i løbet af det seneste år, hvor mere end 120 udviklere har været igennem. En masse har gjort en kæmpe indsats for at få det til at lykkedes og brugt en masse tid på det – tak for det!

Windows platformen, om det er til en desktop, en tablet eller en telefon, tyder på at være en meget spændende platform at være udvikler til i den kommende tid. Platformen har et stort potentiale og indeholder en masse muligheder for både udviklere og virksomheder.

Meget af den viden, vi som udviklere har her Windows Phone brugergruppen, kan bruges på hele Windows platformen. Vi er vant til begreber som app, xaml og metro – begreber som er dybt integreret i Windows platformen fremover.

Windows Phone brugergruppen har derfor taget det første skridt til at samle den viden brugergruppen besidder med den viden, der skal oparbejdes i den kommende periode, hvor Windows platformen formodentlig vil få stor betydning for mange i brugergruppen.

Brugergruppen har skiftet navn til Windows Developers in Denmark.

I brugergruppen håber vi at I vil tage rigtig godt imod det og fortsat være med til at gøre det til en fantastisk brugergruppe. Vi vil meget gerne have jeres kommentarer, feedback og meget gerne forslag til talks så smid en mail på windowsdev@live.com.

Delete failed WP7 app submission

9 Jan

Sometimes it happens that one get to submit an app for certification and it fails. And in some cases one wish to just delete the submission after it fails – but that is not possible out-of-the-box on http://create.msdn.com. But there is an easy workaround.

Edit the submission details for the failed app. Add a new XAP-file – it doesn’t have be a modification of the original XAP-file. I have replaced the XAP-file with a dummy XAP-file called “delete.xap”. Hit the “Save and Quit”-button to quit the submission. In the overview the app submission have changed state to “submission incomplete”.

Click the “submission incomplete” to go to the submission details. In the bottom you will have a “Delete submission”-button and you can delete your submission – yeah!
