It’s getting closer and closer. Christmas is comming!
I’m proud to say I was kind all 2012, both at home and at work. I’m even happier because, when working with code, I had to use IDEs other than Idea, which according to my colleagues is awesome… I made it nevertheless! Knowing the power of TeamCity and Resharper, I can only guess that my friends know what they are recommending That makes me believe it would be perfect gift under my Christmas tree!
So, Santa, I hope you are reading this letter and agree it would be great to provide me with the license. I promise, I’d be even better next year!
I watched one session and followed it by the other one. I’ve only seen two of last year’s session for now but I don’t regret and will definitely come back and watch more. Having looked at the speakers and agenda, it seems it was a decent conference. If you have a moment, visit the the agenda of NDS2011, with links to videos, and look at the sessions. Probably, there are a few you might be interested in. Watch it/them and be happy to safe some amount
What if you need to undelete a file or bunch of files that at some point have been deleted from TFS? Naive option would be to get the content of the file, copy it, create a new file, and paste the copied content to just created file.

If you have never used RockScroll you are probably most comfortable with standard scrollbar Visual Studio offers. I guarantee you, however, that the moment you install RockScroll and work with it for a while, you will miss it a lot if you switch to Visual Studio that’s not extended with it. I’ve experienced that many times when kneeled at a teammate’s desk trying to help him move on with their task. This is probably best moment when you will realize that Visual Studio misses a thing without RockScroll
Here are most important pros that make me think RockScroll is must-have plugin for Visual Studio:
One of the sessions I liked most on Microsoft Technology Summit 2011 was one delivered by Krzysztof Bińkowski – it was about certificates and PKI in context of Windows Server 2008. I’m not going to describe the session here, but wanted to share the tool that might help better understand the world of cryptography.
To better explain theory provided on his slides, Krzysztof used CrypTool. Let me cite the authors of this tool to give you a basic idea on what CrypTool is:
CrypTool is a free, open-source e-learning application, used worldwide in the implementation and analysis of cryptographic algorithms. It supports both contemporary teaching methods at schools and universities as well as awareness training for employees and civil servants.
