If you are trying to create a Self-Hosted WCF Service, the host process needs permissions to reserve the base URI used by the service. If it doesn’t, you’ll get an “AddressAccessDeniedException”.
The fix? Simple, run Visual Studio as an Administrator. Hold down the “Shift” key and Right-Click on the Visual Studio icon. Select “Run as administrator” (if your account is a local admin) or “Run as different user” and enter the credentials for an administrative account:
Or, from the Windows 8 Start Screen, right click on the icon, or Live Tile and select “Run as administrator”:
At SQL Saturday #249, my “Windows Azure and SQL Server – Better Together” was well received. I actually uploaded my deck into SQL Saturday’s site, but you can get it here as well:
This really ended up just being a great open discussion. I let the audience drive it for the most part. But we hit topics like:
- SQL Database
- Virtual Machines with SQL Server installed
- Virtual Networks
- HDInsight (Azure’s Hadoop offering)
Thanks to everybody who attended! I had a great time.
So, here’s another nerdy thing about me. I am kinda weird about needing to have nicely resizable vector images in PowerPoint. Not a fan of using bitmaps if I can avoid it. As a result, I have over the past months ended up making vector versions of all the Windows Azure service icons. If you grab my deck, you can steal my vectors out of there! Yeah…., I know…., I need counseling.
Thanks to the Collision Industry Electronic Commerce Association (CIECA) for inviting me to present the keynote presentation at their annual conference yesterday here in San Diego. When I talked with CIECA Executive Director Fred Iantorno about the keynote, he told me that some previous keynotes had showed some of what was new and cool. As I thought about that, it led me to think about a number of the new devices that are available now, or on the horizon and how they play a part in the current “Internet of Things” (IoT). So. After quite a bit of research around IoT, and it’s evolution into the “Internet of Everything” (IoE), I arrived at my final presentation. Here it is in all it’s glory. Feel free to grab a copy of the slides (40MB).

In addition, I referred to a TON of stats, products, etc.. I have included an Excel document in the .zip file that has all of the links I used.
