Creating Reports in Excel 2007 using EPPlus (Header, Footer, Comments, Image, Formatting, Shape and Formula)

 Introduction
EPPlus is really a powerful tool to generate excel based reports on server side and it is becoming my favorite tool as I am getting more experienced with it. Previously I wrote a post about Creating advanced Excel 2007 Reports on Server. This post is update on the last post and I am sharing more advanced feature of EP Plus.

C# Interactive Window · Wiki doc

The C# Interactive Window provides a fast and iterative way to learn APIs, experiment with code snippets, and test methods by giving immediate feedback on what an expression will return or what an API call does.

The C# Interactive Window is a read-eval-print-loop (REPL) with advanced editor support. It supports features like IntelliSense as well as the ability to redefine functions & classes. After entering a code snippet–which can contain class and function definitions at top-level along with statements–the code executes directly. This means you no longer need to open a project, define a namespace, define a Main method, add a Console.WriteLine() call to output your result, and add a Console.ReadLine() call in order to play with code. In other words, say goodbye to ConsoleApp137 or whatever ridiculously high number your Console Apps default to today!

Unit testing faked async methods

With the addition of the async/await keywords in .NET Framework 4.5, many more methods will now return Task<TResult>.  For example, a web service method can now be created to return Task<TResult> so it is ready for the async/await keywords.  This brings up the question on how you can unit test these methods.

A reference architecture (part 1) | Dunatis

The goal of this series is to show you an example how you could design a system. It’s kind of a reference architecture that I like to use (I have used it – a number of times in middle-sized projects, and I’m still quite happy about it), but it’s up to you to decide if you find some ideas to be usable in your specific environment.

Fluent Assertions

Fluentassertions : Fluent Assertions is a set of .NET extension methods that allow you to more naturally specify the expected outcome of a TDD or BDD-style test. We currently use it in all our internal and client projects, and it is used in many open-source projects. It runs on .NET 3.5, 4.0 and 4.5 (Desktop and Windows Store), Silverlight 4 and 5 and Windows Phone 7.5. And it supports the unit test frameworks NUnit, XUnit, MBUnit, Gallio and MSpec.
