  • Blog Post: What’s new in T4 for Visual Studio 2013?

    Visual Studio 2013 Preview has been out for a while now so I thought I should announce the new goodies in the product for T4 this time around. As the T4 engine is fairly mature now we focused on a couple of scenarios that have been blocked or tricky for customers. I’m sure you’ll agree they are good...
  • Blog Post: T4 Debugging – Under The Hood

    Hi - my name is Tim Malone and I'm a developer in Visual Studio, working on T4. I began my time at Microsoft in the summer of 2010 as in intern working on what would eventually become the new "Debug T4 Template" feature in Visual Studio 2012 (described here ). I'd like to expand a bit more...

  • Blog Post: Pluralcast Podcast on T4

      A few weeks ago, I recorded a podcast about T4, and how it’s being used inside and outside Microsoft with the estimable David Starr , who I happened to meet up with at the recent MVP Summit .

  • Blog Post: New T4 blog and new T4 samples

    Some of you may have noticed that we’ve launched a new T4 official blog over at http://blogs.msdn.com/b/t4 .

  • Blog Post: VS2010 SP1: T4 Improvements Summary

    Over the last few posts, I've talked about the exciting improvements we've made to T4 Text Templating in Service Pack 1 for Visual Studio 2010.

      As it’s the Silverlight Firestarter event today, the very cool WCF RIA Services team have released a new version of their toolkit.

  • Blog Post: DTE and T4 - Better Together

    A couple of folks out there have put together some really neat T4 templates that use the host-specific flag and then access Visual Studio's DTE object model to read state from other code in the project and use that as metadata for code generation. Daniel Vaughan started out with a nice post on using...

  • Blog Post: Les WebCasts de toutes les sessions VSX Day sont disponibles!

    OK, so I don't get to blog in French much (d'habitude pas du tout - in fact) and of course I stole this phrase from Jean-Marc's blog anyway so it's just a cheat :-) However, I couldn't let it pass that the good folks from the dslfactory.org community and Microsoft France had an incredibly successful...

As with all moves there's been a lot to...
