I was recently in San Francisco, CA to deliver a presentation at AltConf 2014 and attend WWDC 2014. The title of the presentation was “Enriching the iOS SDK”. Feel free to check out the video below and hit the “Like” button if you like it.
Building applications isn’t easy, especially if you are not a developer and do not know how to. To help boost the number of apps on its ecosystem, Microsoft has provided a very way to build applications that can target Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1.
Last week, I was in beautiful Oslo in Norway most of the week for NDC 2014. It was a great conference and I’d like to point out a few highlights.
Have you ever wanted to dig deeper into a process running on your machine? We have. That’s the reason why the new dotPeek 1.2 EAP build introduces Process Explorer.
This download includes an ISO image file of the Visual Studio and .NET Framework documentation—overviews, how-to articles, API reference pages, sample code, and more—to help you in your development efforts
I wrote a new book titled “Neural Networks using C# Succinctly”. It was published this week. There are many existing books on neural networks but no good ones (in my opinion) that focus on how to create neural networks from a software developer’s point of view.
ASP.NET MVC is a web application development framework built on top of Microsoft’s .NET Framework. ASP.NET MVC framework is a lightweight, highly testable presentation framework that is integrated with existing ASP.NET features.
I had the pleasure of delivering a TypeScript session today in NDC Oslo.
In the session, I introduced the TypeScript language and talked about language features and how to use them.
I'm sure you saw my Coding4Fun Blog post today? The one where I highlight the just released Visual Studio 2013 SDK samples? Oh wait, grrrr... maybe you didn't since just found out I screwed up the schedule for it (7/2, 6/2, so close yet so far apart) doh! Well it's live now at least!
ProtoBuf is Googles open serialization format which can be used to serialize objects in a standardized way. With it, different platforms can communicate with a format that is much more efficient than XML. Combine the most popular implementation if it, protobuf-net, with Griffin.Framework and you get an easy and fast way of sending information between processes.
Today, we are making available a first community technology preview of the next version of Visual Studio, codenamed Visual Studio “14”. This early build is focused on enabling feedback and testing from the Visual Studio community.
I was working on a new ASP.NET web application. In this application, I was trying to use Onion Architecture. The application was also using ASP.NET Identity 2.0. Our goal was to create application that will easily replace(if required) the ASP.NET Identity system with any other Identity system or ASP.NET Identity Entity Framework store with any other Identity store without changing anything in our web application.
You should note that I passed plain JSON to the list binding option. I do not bind directly to the object, but instead bind to the exposed dataSource property. As you can see, it was very straightforward to wire up a fluid user experience with selection, animated feedback and scrolling.
Many mobile apps need the ability to preview files — email attachments, web links, cloud photos, and other assets. Some apps even need the ability to open and handle files themselves.
You would have heard of BDotNet if you are in Bangalore & you are a .NET developer. If you have not come across BDotNet let me tell you something about BDotNet. BDotNet stands for Bangalore .NET User Group.
In this episode I got a chance to talk to Troy Hunt, way on the other side of the world. Troy had some great perspectives on staying in shape and living a healthy active lifestyle.
TechEd is officially over and Telerik was there covering the entire event. Now that we are all back home, it is time to catch up all of the sessions that we missed online. I’ve went through the entire list of developer sessions and hand picked my favorite sessions to share with you.
Executing that in the immediate window will spawn you out a list of the attached event handlers to your event at runtime.
This past Thursday I had the pleasure of presenting for the Linked In .NET Users Group. The topic was TypeScript. My goal was to show how well TypeScript works to solve common problems in the enterprise to tackle it from the perspective of Return on Investment and how it scales teams, improves productivity, increases quality and reduces overhead.
Today, we’re releasing an update to Productivity Power Tools 2013 on the Visual Studio Gallery. In this release, we fixed a number of customer-reported bugs and issues, and introduced a new feature called syntactic line compression.
Lately I was involved in a few projects and was consulting to a few more. Most of the web developers I met are very confused with what is going today in the web platform.
Visual Basic Tools for Visual Studio is a language service extension for Visual Studio 2012 and 2013 allowing to work on classic Visual Basic projects within Visual Studio.
The Windows Phone 8.1 emulator has a beautiful new option: if you want to simulate a route you don’t have to put in a gazillion points anymore, you just input two (or some more if you want specific waypoint), the emulator automatically calculates a route and off you go.
