Huge News! Get Windows 8 and Windows Phone Controls for FREE for the Duration of TechEd 2014


TechEd 2014 is on, and I'm envious that I'm not in attendance. However, Telerik, purveyor of controls for application development, are giving away licenses for their Windows 8 and Windows Phone control packs over the duration of TechEd. I've gone through the claim process, the licenses are equivalent to the one-year subscription options, and apparently can be renewed or upgraded. Not only that, but Telerik are working on components for the new universal apps, and have stated that these new components will be added free of charge to the accounts of any who get the free tools this week! This is a fabulous offering for those on the fence over trying the tools, and very timely for me as I was planning to purchase a Windows 8 pack. I save some money now, and just might be renewing later - many thanks to Telerik for the freebie. The generosity is much appreciated so I can get started on Windows 8 application development.

NUnit for .NET 4

This is partly for my future reference, and partly to share the details. If you’re reading this, you’ll likely know that .NET 4 was released almost two months ago. I’ve recently been upgrading my projects to the new framework, and hit a snag with running post-build unit tests via NUnit.
