    Async Support in Telerik JustCode

    The latest internal build of JustCode has been released with support for the asynchronous language features in the Microsoft Visual Studio Async CTP. Improvements to the semantic analyzer detect errors on usage of the async method modifier and await operators in C# and Visual Basic. This feature will be available for the general public in JustCode Q2 SP1. If you’re new to the async and await keywords and would like to know to learn asynchronous programming with C# 5, refer to Going Asynchronous. I provide an example of a twitter client using synchronous programming, the current way of doing asynchronous...

    Constructors Made Easy with JustCode

    Constructors are a necessary element of class design that typically involves repetitive work. Language teams try to reduce verbosity by moving patterns into language features. Where this terseness doesn’t exist, tools such as Telerik JustCode can alleviate some of the work to make a smooth coding experience. Today, I will introduce a few features that make creating constructors easier. Blank Slate Let’s start with a simple Employee entity class.   public class Employee { public int Id { get; set; } public string FirstName { get; set; } public string LastName { get; set; } ...

    Another Great CodeStock

    Last week marked another great CodeStock, a two day developer conference in Knoxville, TN.  The organizer, Michael Neel, does a great job of juggling the speakers, schedule, and venue, and the show continues to get better and better! Telerik was once again one of the core sponsors of the conference, as we continue our wide and deep support of the developer community.  I also gave for presentations: Test Driven Development for T-SQL Windows Presentation Foundation for Developers Implementing M-V-VM in WPF (Have you tried our WPF Controls?)

    Generating Documentation with JustCode

    If you enjoy writing documentation from scratch, this article may not be for you. If you like removing as much repetitive work as possible, then JustCode can help you out. Aside from aiding in this endeavor with code, it also addresses code documentation. There are two primary features in JustCode I will discuss. The first is Generate Documentation which handles the XML comments for methods and types. The second is a new feature, Introduce Header, which was made available on May 3rd with internal build 1. Generate Documentation I like self-documenting code. I write short, descriptive methods intended for anyone to be...
