In this Post, I will explain why and when you measure your ‘TCP Session Quality (Starting with: What is ‘TCP Quality’ anyway?).
How you can analyse it yourself, and I’ll share with you a recent example where I had to use it myself. For your comfort – I will write it down in 3 phases.
In the CloudShare dev group, we occasionally work with an outside consultant or contractor.
One of the most annoying pains when hiring a developer contractor is the need to provide him with a development environment. The consultant usually wants to work on his laptop in his office / home and needs a development environment immediately. Besides, as opposed to an in-house developer, there is no real value in letting him install and configure his own developer station.

This time of year is great for the developer to catch up. Get beyond the daily fire drills. Maybe your family will get you involved in some IT task you rather avoid. But this time of year you get to finally think for yourself. You get to revisit that piece of your application you knew you could have coded better. Spend some time researching new technologies and approaches. And overall start digesting all that has happened in your world over the last year.

In this article I will continue talking about the new Cloud Business App project template we have available in Visual Studio 2013 RC (VS 2013 RC). If you remember, in my last post about this project template we simply reviewed how to use it and how to deploy and debug a dummy application without adding any business entity to the App. In this article, we will see how to add business entities to the App without adding any line of code:
Do you have enough fingers to count the number of “Systems” in your organization? These systems, lovingly called Line of Business applications, or LOBs for short, are critical for daily work. But the software and infrastructure powering them are often very complex mixtures of on-premise apps and cloud tools. And they are hard to change. When someone has a great idea on how to improve processes, how do you begin?
This is a small account of how a need from our users, even CloudShare employees, become new features. CloudShare, believe it or not, uses CloudShare to test CloudShare. Sound crazy? Read this old post.
Recently, different teams in CloudShare (Development,QA and IT) wanted to communicate between VMs running in the CloudShare Data Center and our office’s internal network. For example, we had a developer who wanted to use the Office GIT server seamlessly from a machine in CloudShare and an IT engineer who wanted to test different product configurations on our Cloud in the same way. This need quickly turned into a new feature for you!
As developers, last week we had a great surprise coming from Microsoft: Visual Studio 2013 Release Candidate (VS 2013 RC) was publicly released together with Team Foundation Server 2013 RC, .NET Framework 4.5.1 RC, and related developer tools technologies. All the details about what’s new in the VS 2013 RC can be found in this great Soma Segar’s blog entry where you can find detailed information about what’s new in RC and the improvements and additions between VS 2013 Preview and RC release.
