Inside the February Issue of VSM

Today's epic winter storm nothwithstanding, subscribers to Visual Studio Magazine should be receiving the February issue of the magazine. Coverage from the issue is also featured here on the VisualStudioMagazine.com Web site.

This month we lead with a collection of useful tips and advice from VSM Tools Editor Peter Vogel for ASP.NET developers considering a move to SharePoint (Developer Tips: Making the SharePoint Transition). As Vogel points out in his article, there are a lot of misconceptions about SharePoint and how it works. Clearing those up can go a long way toward helping you make the most of your SharePoint development projects.

Also featured this month is a how-to piece on developing apps for the Android mobile platform using MonoDroid (Introduction to MonoDroid), a Visual Studio 2010 plug-in that allows .NET developers to target the Android OS. You'll also find Patrick Steele's C# Corner column on Object Equality in C#, as well as Kathleen Dollard's Ask Kathleen column titled How to Generate Code from a UML Model in Visual Studio 2010.

Finally check out Alexandra Rusina's insightful look at the dynamic keyword and Dynamic Language Runtime in .NET Framework 4 (Understanding the Dynamic Keyword in C# 4). The feature starts off with an overview of the dynamic features in the current version of C# before diving into their workings with other language and framework features, such as reflection and implicitly-typed variables.

This month's issue also includes a pair of VS Toolbox reviews: Infragistics' NetAdvantage for Silverlight Data Visualization and the integrated Flash development tools Amethyst and WebOrb. The VS Insider column this month features guest columnist Al Hilwa, program director of Applications Development Software at research firm IDC, who looks at how Microsoft's support for the ARM processor could presage some interesting developments in the Windows Phone 7 space. Finally Andrew Brust, in his Redmond Review column, thinks Microsoft might do well to return to some old innovations to win a share of the fast-growing tablet space (Tablet Toast or Slate Salvation?).
