Touching a File with PowerShell

I am finding more and more things I can do with PowerShell everyday. The other day, I had to “touch” a file… one line is what it takes:

.NET/C#

  • Microsoft project code named “Velocity” is a distributed in-memory caching platform that provides .NET applications with high-speed access, scaling, and high availability to application data. Download the Community Preview here.
  • Danny Simmons enumerated various reasons for using Entity Framework.
  • If your netMsmq WCF service shows signs of a handles leak, you may want to make sure you have .NET Framework 3.0 Service Pack 1 installed.
  • Bryan wrote a timely article on TDD Tips: Test Naming Conventions & Guidelines.
  • Microsoft announced the release of Microsoft Source Analysis for C#.
    “Source Analysis is similar in many ways to Microsoft Code Analysis (specifically FxCop), but there are some important distinctions. FxCop performs its analysis on compiled binaries, while Source Analysis analyzes the source code directly. For this reason, Code Analysis focuses more on the design of the code, while Source Analysis focuses on layout, readability and documentation. Most of that information is stripped away during the compilation process, and thus cannot be analyzed by FxCop.”

General Programming

Tools

  • The Query command line utility displays active Terminal Service/Remote Desktop sessions, among other things. This replaces the qwinsta utility.
