Attended Microsoft MVPs Open Day 2015 in Bangalore

It was another year I attended Microsoft MVPs Open Day event in Bangalore, last time it was in Goa.


||For those who don’t know what MVPs Open Day is

Every year Microsoft MVP Award Program organizes an event dedicated for MVPs only. In such event MVPs gathered together from different cities (South Asia MVP region includes India, Nepal, Bangladesh etc countries). Such events feature technical sessions designed to enhance the community's understanding of new Microsoft products, existing tools and new techniques. But MVPs like me don't come to learn just from Microsoft teams, we present during Open Days, which allows MVPs to
   i) share real-world knowledge of Microsoft technologies aka "MVP to MVP" sessions
   ii) network with fellow MVPs in person and this helps understand community more closely
   iii) enjoy with fellow MVPs


I had a great time with MVPs and Lead. I would like to thank Biplab and Gandharv for organizing this event beautifully.

Technical reviewer of Microsoft TypeScript

The very nice people at PACKT Publication recently asked me to technical review one of the upcoming new book TypeScript, and you know I never miss such opportunities to review book and become its part. Greedily, to get reviewer name printed on book gives great feel.

[A]System.Web.WebPages.Razor.Configuration.HostSection cannot be cast to [B]System.Web.WebPages.Razor.Configuration.HostSection. Type A originates from 'System.Web.WebPages.Razor, Version=1.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35'

I was just building another MVC 4 Application and found this error:

[A]System.Web.WebPages.Razor.Configuration.HostSection cannot be cast to [B]System.Web.WebPages.Razor.Configuration.HostSection. Type A originates from 'System.Web.WebPages.Razor, Version=1.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35' in the context 'Default' at location 'C:\Windows\Microsoft.Net\assembly\GAC_MSIL\System.Web.WebPages.Razor\v4.0_1.0.0.0__31bf3856ad364e35\System.Web.WebPages.Razor.dll'. Type B originates from 'System.Web.WebPages.Razor, Version=2.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35' in the context 'Default' at location 'C:\Windows\Microsoft.Net\assembly\GAC_MSIL\System.Web.WebPages.Razor\v4.0_2.0.0.0__31bf3856ad364e35\System.Web.WebPages.Razor.dll'.

I noticed it came up just after MVC 3 Application to MVC 4 Application migration. Thought to share if this helps someone.
