Running Batch Files on Visual Studio 2010 Project Items

Sunday, June 26th, 2011

This is something I wrote as an answer on StackOverflow. I dug it out again the other day as I needed it for something else. I have a horrible memory and my blog is essentially just a glorified indexing system for it. Ade’s brain is now, like everything else indexed ...

One of the attendees at the p&p Symposium had some questions about how exceptions are handled in the Task Parallel Library. This is covered both in the book and in the MSDN library (references below). But… Here’s a quick summary with code examples.

C++Ox, Lambdas and Lots of Brackets

Friday, February 26th, 2010

There are lots of interesting talks at Seattle Code Camp this year (April 17th and 18th). One of the biggest things I noticed was the number of talks on parallel computing, including one on patterns for parallel programming. I thought I’d submit something a bit different… Fast… Faster… FASTER! What happens when you ...

Moving To A Distributed Version Control System

Wednesday, January 27th, 2010

I’ve been using Subversion to host my code on a Windows Home Server box for the past year or so. At about the same time distributed version control systems (DVCS) started to become the “hot new thing”. Git, Mercurial and Bazaar with their associated community hubs; GitHub, BitBucket and Launchpad ...
