UPDATED HOWTO: SQLite with Windows 8 apps

I’ve previously posted a few things about SQLite including a HOWTO on how to build from their source code.  If you still want to build your own DLL from their source code that is totally fine, but not necessary in most every single case I’ve seen in app usage.  One of the challenges I noted is that since SQLite is a native component and if you are a managed (.NET) app you can’t be architecture neutral anymore (AnyCPU).  What this means is that you have to build your app for each architecture you want to support: x86, x64 and ARM. ...

Using SQLite in a Metro style app

At the “Developing Windows 8 Metro style apps with C++” event that happened on 18-May-2012, we saw and heard some very interesting things.  If you were watching live then hopefully you didn’t see how I tried to work through my presentation while my disk was suspiciously guzzling every last byte until it eventually ran out of space!  But I digress… During the keynote presentation by Herb Sutter, we brought up several customers that are well-known in the native code world to talk about their experiences with Metro style apps and C++/Cx.  In particular hopefully this one caught your eye: That’s right, the...

Stung by Azure Data Transfer fees

I should have known better honestly.  I’ve had one strike with cloud billing catching me by surprise and I’m not sure why I’m shocked it happened again.  This time, however, I thought I really did plan it out, pay attention to things and asked what I thought were the right questions.  Unfortunately I didn’t get the full answers.  This time I was stung by my shiny new SQL Azure service choice. UPDATE 12-APR-2012: Based on comments I've received I feel the need to clarify that I'm not bashing Azure or cloud services in general here.  I don't think anywhere I indicated...

Shrinking your Subtext database

I run my site on Subtext which has been around for 6+ years in some form (Subtext is a fork of .Text from way back).  As a part of the framework, there was initially built-in capabilities for tracking referral traffic.  On each view of the application, it would tick a referral note and you could see this in the statistics view of the admin pages. As the standards (for lack of a better term) of tracking Page Views, Referrals, etc. moved to more proven/consistent reporting like Google Analytics (or other platforms) these type of platform tracking became worthless to...

Migrating a SQL Server database to SQL Azure

For the past 6 years I’ve run this blog on the Subtext project (an Open Source software project which is an ASP.NET blog framework).  It has served me very well with being flexible and allowing me to customize things that I want.  It is based on SQL Server and uses stored procedures and relational database “stuff” to accomplish the goals of the design.  Recently I saw the news from Scott Guthrie about the reduction in pricing on some Windows Azure products, introducing a 100MB pricing option for SQL Azure which you can read about here and here.  I...
