Austin .Net User Group Pictures from June 8, 2015

Chander Dhall spoke to the Austin .Net Users Group last night about JavaScript. Here's two pics. The room actually filled up after I took the first one so it was Standing Room Only. Chander was an entertaining speaker and really showed how JavaScript is really weird. My cryptic notes for the evening:
Use Xamarin tools for coding Android and iOS apps in C#
UserGroup.tv has lots of tech videos.
Chander had no powerpoint, just raw code.
JavaScript is not going anywhere.
Angularjs is having problems, so reactive is getting some traction to replace angular.
You really need to understand the weirdness of JavaScript - frameworks are not going to solve your problem.
The answer is IIFE.

How to remove Perforce from the right-click context menu in Windows 7

When I right-clicked on a file in Windows Explorer it took an agonizing 8 seconds for the context menu to appear. I noticed that "Perforce" was in the context menu.

 I tried to go to the control panel and modify the P4V installation to remove it, but windows whined about not being able to find a log file. No dice.

So I did the next best thing. I renamed the actual program from P4EXP.dll to something else in C:\Program Files\Perforce\P4EXP. My context menu now appears in under a second.

I'll let you know if this causes downstream perforce weirdness, like files with two heads or three arms.
