On that evening, like almost every other day before, a man was hopelessly stuck in his car in a solidly blocked traffic. On some wide and long highway, above some wide and long city. Thousands of red lights , fuzzy in the heat of thousands of exhaust pipes, miles ahead, dimming into the horizon, in front of him.
What is the point I am making here? The point I am making is this : To find something one really needs in the MSDN ocean, one needs to spend 90% of time, in order to discard 90% of information encountered on the “path of discovery”, which I would call “path of MSDN misery” most of the time.
Visual Studio 2010 is officially released. Regardless of its quality, I think that a very large percentage of companies will move from 2008 to 2010 very, very slowly. If you are a software developer “doing” C# in some of this companies, You might find this post useful.
Furthermore, there are more and more nice and useful C# samples to be found, which are in the same time presented using C#4 and VS2010. Most of that “new” code can be re-factored “back” into legacy C#. Currently, I am reluctant to invest in VS2010, so this is my solution for re-factoring C#4 methods using default arguments, back into “legacy” C#.
metacall means “call of calls”

Yesterday (on MIX10) Microsoft has re-iterated and strengthened its commitment to jQuery. This is certainly (very) good news for jQuery (and John Resig) : http://visualstudiomagazine.com/articles/2010/03/16/mix10-jquery-announcement.aspx
Very cynical geek (what, me ?) can appear very clever and write :
What’s next ? jQuery VBScript version ;)
