Using Microsoft's Chart Controls In An ASP.NET Application: Exporting Charts
The Chart Web control makes it easy to display a chart in an ASP.NET web page - simply drag the Chart control onto the page, set a few properties and either bind it to
a data source control or write a few lines of code that get and bind the data of interest. When a page with a Chart control is visited by a user, the Chart control renders
<img> element on the page that displays the rendered chart.
The Chart control is great for displaying a chart on a web page, but what if a user wants to view that chart offline, or send the chart to a colleague? In an earlier
installment, Programmatically Generating Chart Images, we examined a number of ways to generate
the chart image programmatically. This technique is useful if you want to modify the chart image before displaying it (to, say, add a watermark) or if you want
to send the chart to a recipient via email. This technique can also be used to allow the visitor to export the chart image into an alternative format.
This article shows how to let users export a chart from a web page to an alternative format. Specifically, we'll look at adding an "Export" button to the chart web page
that, when clicked, exports the chart displayed in the web page to either an image file that can be downloaded or as a PDF file.
Git, from a Developer's Perspective
What is Git? Git is a content-addressable file system wrapped in a version control system.That may sound complicated, but code snippets sometimes speak louder than words:
Team Foundation Server (TFS) API Wrapper
A simple wrapper that encapsulates exposed functions of the Microsoft Team Foundation Server (TFS) client API
Programming Team Foundation Server with the TFS SDK

Use Subversion Revision numbers in your Visual Studio Projects
SVN Keywords are not sufficient for retrieving the highest revision number for your project. This simple method solves this problem.
NArrange - .NET Code Organizer
NArrange is a stand-alone, configurable .NET code beautification tool that automatically organizes code members and elements within .NET classes. It allows developers to easily sort class contents according to their style and layout conventions. NArrange works by parsing source code files into a document object model, arranging the elements then rewriting the arranged source code.
A Small-team Analysis of Visual Studio Team System
Although intended primarily for large teams, sometimes VSTS can simplify life on smaller teams as well. Find out whether your smaller teams might benefit.
Add Continuous Integration Capabilities to Team Foundation Server
Continuous Integration is an agile process that rebuilds a project whenever the underlying code changes. Find out how to modify your Team Foundation Server projects' "build types" to implement continuous integration features such as automatic builds, testing, and problem notification.
