SlowCheetah VS 11 support and now on github

In case you are not familiar with SlowCheetah, it is a Visual Studio extension which allows you to transform app.config files in the same way that web.config files are. More info on the project page http://visualstudiogallery.msdn.microsoft.com/69023d00-a4f9-4a34-a6cd-7e854ba318b5.

I wanted to let everyone know that I have updated SlowCheetah to support Visual Studio 11 and I have also placed the project on github at https://github.com/sayedihashimi/slow-cheetah. Regarding the VS 11 support there is one known issue that we currently do not support the preview functionality on VS 11. This is an item which we will be fixing for the next release.

Visual Studio 11 Web Publish database section

If you have tried out the web publish feature in Visual Studio then you may have noticed the message seen in the image towards the end of the post in the database section.

We did not have time for VS 11 beta to light up these features, but if you want a sneak peak of the behavior then take a look at the channel 9 video I posted recently Dirt Simple Web and Database Deployment in Visual Studio 11. If you have any questions/feedback feel free to send me an email: sayedha [at] {Microsoft}dotCOM.

Video about upcoming Visual Studio 11 web publish updates

Recently I recorded a video on Channel 9 with Brady Gaster Dirt Simple Web and Database Deployment in Visual Studio 11. In this video I show the work that we have done to enable Entity Framework Code First migrations during publish and I also cover the investments that we are making regarding incremental database schema publish when you are not using EF Code First. If you get a chance I’d love for you to watch the video and give feedback regarding the direction that we are taking with VS Web Publishing.
