I started a new community, named .NET Oost. We will organize meetups in the east of the Netherlands to share knowledge about Microsoft .NET and related technologies. Last week we had our first meetup, where I talked about the basic of SOLID. The audience, mostly students, were very enthousiastic about it. And so was I! If you live in our area, please join our community. It’s free and have a pizza with us!
Since a couple of months you can download an extension for Visual Studio Team Services (VSTS) to manage your own NuGet packages. The extension is called Package Management. It’s is still in preview, but Microsoft supports it already as were it released. With this tooling you can host your own NuGet feed, containing your – or other custom NuGet packages. The big advantage is that you can share NuGet packages with your organization. They are available for consuming from your Team Build too. Beside version control, workitem management and tracking bugs, in my opinion Team Build is a key feature of VSTS, so this is really great news!
