The Connect(); event links edition

This year Connect(); event was held in New York City on November 18th and 19th. Some really good announcements were made live like open sourcing VS Code and the first release candidate for ASP.NET 5 and the .NET Core framework.

Below are some of announcements links I gathered from the event. If you prefer watching the keynotes or any presentation related to the event the best thing to do is actually going on the Channel 9 event page to access all the videos.

NuGet Tips: Migrating from Visual Studio 2013 to Visual Studio 2015

Symptom: Visual Studio 2015 ignores the repositoryPath setting in nuget.config file.

I had a surprise when I tried to upgrade one of my solution from Visual Studio 2013: for unknown reason at that time the first build I did in Visual Studio 2015 NuGet started to restore all my packages again and put them the default packages folder. The thing is I had a special configuration set in the nuget.config file like:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<settings>
  <repositoryPath>..\Libraries</repositoryPath>
</settings>

I usually put all my projects under a Source folder and I like all my NuGet packages to be stored at the same level than Source but under a Libraries folder. The problem I found out is that the nuget.config file schema changed between NuGet version 2 and version 3. NuGet 3 now will simply ignore the configuration file because it’s not conforming to the new format. To migrate to the new schema specification I had to change the file content to look like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<configuration>
  <config>
    <add key="repositoryPath" value="..\Libraries" />
  </config>
</configuration>

I hope this help!
