Backbone.Spark provides computed property support for Backbone.js, the goal of the extension is to make computed properties behave in the same way as a normal attribute so your other code doesn’t need to know the difference.Read Article
It bugs me when developers check in files to TFS that haven’t been modified. It’s easy to do, you open a file, edit it, change your mind and ctrl-z it. Now you have a checked out file with no changes and when you do your next check in you’ll probably check that file in too, unless you’re really on the ball and compare each file manually first. TFS makes no distinction between checked in files that were modified and those that weren’t, which makes the job of reviewing code that much harder.Read Article

Simple solution - make sure your Visual Studio indentation settings match your Blend settings.Read Article
I wasted a few development hours discovering this strange behaviour when binding to the IsChecked property of a RadioButton in WPF when using MVVM. You can read about the issue on the MSDN forum, but from my experience if you have a two way binding on the is IsChecked property of a RadioButton which is part of a group, then after you set the bound property in code a couple of times, the RadioButton loses it’s binding all together.Read Article
