The big news this weekend is the announcement that Microsoft will be shipping an unaltered version of jQuery with ASP.NET MVC and future releases of their developer tools. In honour of this, today sees a temporary new section for jQuery, and therefore a longer than usual edition of the Brew.
- jQuery and Microsoft - ScottGu gives the news of the new alliance between Microsoft and jQuery talking about the plans for shipping the library and tool support., along with future development plans.
- jQuery, Microsoft, and Nokia - John Resig posts on the Offical jQuery site to give the jQuery side of the announcement. The other significant news in this post is that Nokia are also adopting jQuery for their widget platform.
- jQuery to ship with ASP.NET MVC and Visual Studio - Scott Hanselman talks about the announcment, and look at the Tool support and gives an example of jQuery with other parts of the ASP.NET stack.
- jQuery now officially part of the .NET developer’s toolbox - Bertrand Le Roy talks briefly about interoperation between ASP.NET AJAX and jQuery, and how they are complementary technologies, good for different parts of the equation.
- jQuery As Built-In Part of ASP.NET MVC and Visual Studio - Keyvan Nayyeri is excited by the prospect of built in support for jQuery in ASP.NET MVC.
- Introduction to jQuery Article posted - The Microsoft / jQuery announcement was timed ideally for Rick Strahl, who has just published the first part of a two part series on jQuery Client Side Scription.
- jQuery and Visual Studio BFF - Rob Conery remarks how hopefully this alliance will help the public opinion of Microsoft’s intentions towards Open source Projects
- Microsoft to add jQuery in Visual Studio: Why I think it’s great - Laurent Bugnion gives another view on the Microsoft / jQuery announcement, considering how companies who don’t usually like Open Source will react to this.
- jQuery finds its way into Microsoft and Nokia stacks - Ajaxian covers both the Microsoft and Nokia jQuery announcement.
- CSLA .NET 3.6 for Windows and for Silverlight Beta 1 released - Rockford Lhotka announces the Beta 1 release of Version 3.6 of his application framework package, now available for both Windows and Silverlight
- Properties - A False Sense of Encapsulation - Jan Van Ryswyck talks about how having too many properties is a bad thing, breaking encapsulation and leading towards having an Anemic Domain Model, illustrating along the way with some code examples.
- Preventing third-party derivation, part one - Eric Lippert talks about a fascinating feature of the CLR, the ability to create public classes which can’t be inherited from outside their own assembly. I have to admit it took two looks at the class to realise what was going on (I’m only half way through my coffee so might not be fully awake yet), but its a neat (and potentially very frustrating) trick.
- ASP.NET MVC Request Flow - Justin Etheredge takes a visual look at the flow through classes that make up the way that ASP.NET MVC processes the request.
- Parallel Stacks for multi-threaded debugging - Daniel Moth proposes a solution to making it easier to view stack traces in multi threaded code.
- WPF Application Quality Guide v.0.3 Released! - Ivo Manolov announces the third preliminary release if the WPF Application Quality Guide, which now includes information on globalization and localization testing.
- Hibernating Rhinos #9 - Application Architecture - Ayende posts up two new episodes of his Hibernating Rhinos screen casts. The first (#9) is about application architecture, and the second (#10) is all about writing ‘Production Quality Software’. Both are very interesting, although I did find that the audio was rather quiet.
- Simplicity is key to successful unit testing - Karl Seguin talks about how the usual code quality rules apply to unit tests as well, resulting in better quality tests, and more reliability and resilience to changes in the system.
- Unit Testing decoupled from Design == Adoption - Roy Osherove continues the debate on Unit Testing practices and adoption, outlining some more of the reasoning behind his previous post.
- Writing non-thread-safe code - Tim Stall talks about non-thread safe code, delving down into the lower levels to explain how problems arise.
- Can you refactor to MVC? - Kyle Baley considers if it is possible to refactor an existing site to run on ASP.NET MVC. I suspect it would be possible, however if its worth the considerable effort is the question I’d ask.
- How do we write test automation for ASP.NET? - Federico Silva Armas of the Asp.Net QA Team talks about how the ASP.NET QA team use NexusLight to create automated tests of the ASP.NET Platform.
