TypeScript - a way to embrace the fuzzy world of java script.

What I always dislike in java script was the fuzziness of this language. Very often you didn’t know what type the variable is or if it was an object or a function. I always lack of some strong typing, design time rich intellisense or compile time type checking, which would minimize the possibility of making a bug in the java script code.

FileTable is a great new feature in SQL Server 2012 which facilitates storing and working with unstructured blob data in SQL Server. Unfortunately is not yet supported in Entity Framework, so you cannot simply use FileTable in your entity model. But there is a workaround for this inconvenience, which I am going to show you in this post.

Entity Framework – lazy loading properties

In the Entity Framework we can easily enable lazy loading of navigation properties by marking them as virtual. This however applies only to properties that reference other related entity type. The framework does not support lazy loading of scalar or primitive properties. But there is a trick to fill this lack quite easily.
