Despite the dependency checker giving me the green light I found I still needed the ADO.NET Data Services Update for .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 update as I kept getting build errors due to the old System.Data.Service.Client assembly.

A recent project of ours has made the news this week > Centrebet deploys app integration platform.

This was a great project to be involved in, consisting of a great mix of technology:

  • Microsoft BizTalk Server
  • Windows Server AppFabric
  • Windows Azure AppFabric Service Bus
  • Windows Azure Hosted Services
  • F# asynchronous programming

Case_Study_Overview

A real software engineering project that had to meet high throughput and low latency requirements, incorporate new technologies and come in on very (very) tight time frames. Credit to go out to the team at Breeze for getting this over the line.

I did however come across this today:

MissingMethodException

To fix re-install the Visual Studio 2010 F# 2.0 Runtime SP1. All good once again.

Happy functional programming Winking smile
