    In this post, we are going to dive into a feature in the Windows 8 Developer Preview. Storage Spaces are going to dramatically improve how you manage large volumes of storage at home (and work). We’ve all tried the gamut of storage solutions—from JBOD arrays, to RAID boxes, or NAS boxes.

    Many of us have been using Windows Home Server Drive Extender and have been hoping for an approach architected more closely as part of NTFS and integrated with Windows more directly. In building the Windows 8 storage improvements, we set out to do just that and developed Storage Spaces. Of course, the existing solutions you already use will continue to work fine in Windows 8, but we think you will appreciate this new feature and the flexible architecture. As we talk all about consumer electronics next week, thinking about all the media we all have in photos (especially huge digital negatives) and videos, this feature is sure to come in handy. In this post, Rajeev Nagar, a group program manager on our Storage and File System team, details this new feature.

    Visual Studio LightSwitch allows you to create Group extensions. A Group extension allows you to specify the layout of controls contained in the group.

    Microsoft has an article, Walkthrough: Creating a Stack Panel Control Extension, that covers the basics of creating a Stack Panel extension for LightSwitch. That article creates an extension that preforms the same functionality as the Rows Layout control that comes in LightSwitch. This article will cover creating an extension that groups controls in a border with a shadow.

    Developers of Windows Phone and Windows Store apps now have an alternative to Azure and can host their applications in Amazon's cloud.

    Amazon Web Services (AWS) has extended its Microsoft toolset with an update to its .NET SDK that now supports Windows Store, WinRT, and Windows Phone 8 applications, offering .NET developers similar options to the already-available SDKs for iOS and Android in AWS.

    Microsoft is releasing "Project Siena" today, a Windows 8.1 app that lets you easily create your own Windows app. It’s designed as a quick tool for building Windows 8-style apps without any programming skills. It’s also a touch-friendly way to create apps from a tablet, rather than using the desktop equivalents. Although potential developers won’t get the full power of tools like Visual Studio, that’s not really the point. Siena is designed to create apps that are more document-like and highly visual, with a canvas for inserting images, buttons, shapes, videos, and more.

    One interesting feature of Reactive Extensions is the combining of Observables. There are a number of extension methods made to combine two or more streams; Amb, Concat, SelectMany, Merge, Zip, CombineLatest, all these methods are made to take, multiple and non necessarily omogeneous, streams and combine them in a unique resulting stream based on different rules.

    In this post, Diego Poza talks about the first drop of Prism 4 which was released a couple of days ago and he also hints what to expect for the next drop.

    This QuickStart demonstrates how to create a basic Silverlight application using the MVVM pattern. Note that this QuickStart is independant of the Prism Library.

    Al Pascual demonstrates the Drag and Drop support in Silverlight 4 by creating a simple test application.

    Silverlight 4 brings a few features that I could use since version 2, the biggest improvement in my case is Drag and Drop support, I really see many different use cases for that particular feature. I created a little test to see how it works and how much code is required to use. The use case is simple, drag and drop an image into a map and added into the graphic layer at the position dropped.

    Ben Lower shraes the announcement of Paramount Pictures that they’re bringing enhanced movie apps to Windows Phone 7.

    Source: The Windows Phone Developer Blog

    Windows Phone 7 ApplicationParamount is releasing 10 full movies which include all the bonus content from a DVD plus stuff you can’t get on a disc like trivia by ‘Scene It?’. This is cool for a couple of reasons. First, I’m a huge fan of Zoolander (in case you couldn’t tell from this post’s title) and it’s one of the movies they’re releasing. Second, this was all done leveraging the power of Silverlight on WP7.

    Scott Guthrie has published a great post on the new features in WPF V4.

    WPF 4 adds a variety of new controls that make building rich line-of-business applications for the client easier and faster. The new, richer control set includes LOB essentials such as DataGrid, DatePicker, and Calendar controls. These new controls are 99% API- and behaviorally-compatible with their Silverlight counterparts, enabling developers to create a consistent experience across the client and web while optimizing workflow by reusing code between Silverlight and WPF implementations.
