Gmail New Mail Notifications for Windows 7
No matter how I try, I always get this: It's insane to me that $130B company can't provide any more than this outdated tool for this job, but I digress. Also thanks goes to Ryan Cook for use of his Gmail C# tools as the basis for part of my project. All information, source code, and especially tools are provided as is and on a "use at your own risk" basis. Tags: Tools I've been using Windows 7 as my sole operating system since Beta 1 in January. I'm completely loving it and I was pleased to see how many apps worked seamlessly on it. Requires.NET 2.0 Kennedy.
Entity Framework 4.1 power tools
Power Tools making it even easier to do Code First development with an existing database. The EF team at Microsoft just release a first CTP of the EF 4.1 Guess it isn’t really code first in that case but database first I did a quick test with an existing database, Northwind to be exact, and it worked pretty well. The only gotcha is you have to make sure the EF4.1 assemblies are available in your project otherwise you will receive the exception below. Adding Ef4.1 is easy though, just download the installer and install them or even better, just add a package reference using NuGet. Enjoy!

A Roundup of MongoDB Management Tools
Back in the early days, there really were no management tools analogous to RDBMS tools (e.g. It’s time to look around and see what management / monitoring tooling is around these days for MongoDB.

Visual Studio 2010 Power Tools
The Visual Studio 2010 Power Tools have just been released. Of course I don’t use Resharper or CodeRush (I use too many machines I don’t control to become dependent on them) so some of these features may be available in those tools. But for me the power tools are a welcome addition to the IDE. There’s all sorts of goodness in here: new flexible tab handling in the VS shell (vertical tab groups, tabs grouped by project, dropping of rarely used tabs, etc); a new searchable Add Reference dialog; new editor enhancements to make navigation easier and much more.

The NoSQL Movement, LINQ, and MongoDB - Oh My!
The NoSQL movement asks the question: “Is the relational database (RDBMS) always the right tool for data storage and data access?”. You may have to run a transformation tool if you’re making radical data changes, but that’s true in SQL systems as well. To get started, download MongoDB the tools and server here: [link]. Generally I look down upon that sort of development, but for an admin tool it’s just fine. All information, source code, and especially tools are provided as is and on a "use at your own risk" basis.

Tooling stack of testing Asp.MVC Views
“Craftsmen know their tools” At last weeks Jim Counts did a session on Testing MVC Views with ApprovalTests. watch the video here ] While I am always happy to see more ApprovalTesting in the world, I was also impressed with the full tooling stack Jim used throughout the presentation. Don’t get me wrong, Jim still does a simple “Hello World” type demo, but he applies all the rigor and professionalism I would want in a real project to that example. Nicely done Jim, you’ve inspired me to raise my game, and hopefully others as well. Asp.MVC Asp.Net C
