Pluralsight new course about Intelligent Systems

I'm very happy to announce that my second Pluralsight course has been published today: Building an Intelligent System: From Embedded to Cloud

Pluralsight _ISCourse

This course is an advanced journey in the developing phases of an Intelligent System, using Windows Embedded 8.1 Industry and Microsoft Azure. After a brief introduction to the Internet of Things concept, we'll see how a real word intelligent system can be built, starting from requirements and specifications, passing through configuration, services, management, cloud backend, and communication strategies, up to the final deploy.

Let me know what you think about it and, for any question, feel free to write me an e-mail!

Windows 8.1 Preview available

Visual Studio 2013 Preview and .NET 4.5.1 Preview

A few weeks ago at TechEd North America 2013, Microsoft announced the next version of Visual Studio and shared some of the progress made with Visual Studio 2013 and Team Foundation Server/Service in enabling the modern application lifecycle and DevOps. The new version includes many new capabilities, such as support for agile portfolio management, cloud-based load testing, a team room integrated with TFS, code comments integration with TFS and Git support.

Yesterday a Preview version with "go-live" license has been made available for download, which includes also the updated .NET Framework 4.5.1.

Visual Studio 2012 Update 3 released

Yesterday Microsoft released the new Update 3 for Visual Studio 2012. When Visual Studio 2012 was launched back in September 2012, Microsoft promised to provide more frequent updates to Visual Studio: in November Visual Studio 2012 Update 1 (VS2012.1) and in April Visual Studio 2012 Update 2 (VS2012.2). Both of these cumulative updates contained significant new features sets, spanning areas such as Windows desktop development, Windows Store development, line-of-business app development, SharePoint development, agile planning and teams, quality enablement, and more.

Visual Studio 2012 Update 3 (VS2012.3) is an incrementally smaller update than its two predecessors: it includes some new capabilities, but is focused primarily on bug fixes.  The update will install on top of the previous updates (if already installed), or can be installed on the RTM release and still get everything from those previous updates.

It is important to install this update if you need to be able to "round-trip" projects between Visual Studio 2012 AND Visual Studio 2013, or if you want to run Visual Studio 2012 on the freshly released Windows 8.1 Preview.
