TFS Preview in service maintenance


Microsoft is performing a service maintenance on TFS Preview (TFS hosted on Azure) today. So you’ll probably notice this error message when trying to connect: TF30040: The database is not correctly configured. Contact your Team Foundation Server administrator.

The service should be back online very soon and the maintenance will be done by Friday 27th 9 AM PDT.


I suggest you to follow the account @tfservice on Twitter and the blog TfService for the last updates.

Microsoft MVP Client App Dev 2012


On Sunday April 1st 2012, I’ve received for the third year in a row, the Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) award on the category Client Application Development. It is always an honor to receive this award. I hope to be able to go to the MVP Summit next year and meet again all other MVPs from around the world.

I’m trying, at work and out of work, to focus my developments on WPF and Windows Phone technologies, so I’ll continue to publish source code, projects, articles and new applications on the Microsoft Marketplace. Please, have a look at my application for Windows Phone 7.
