LightSwitch: reading threads from StackOverflow with OData

As you might know, one of the most important new features in the next version of Visual Studio LightSwitch, currently in beta, is the support for OData.

My new video: CallerMemberInfo in Visual Basic 11

The Beta of Visual Basic 11 introduces three new attributes: CallerFilePath, CallerLineNumber, and CallerMemberName. These allow retrieving information that previously could be available only via reflection, and including the .pdb debug files and in full-trust environments and you will typically use them in logging scenarios. Learn how to use them in this video: Alessandro
