Random Link Roundup

Happy Friday!  Here are some random, useful links I have come across over the last couple of weeks.  If you follow the standard of using ViewBag.Title to set page titles in ASP.NET MVC, you have probably run into an annoying problem that occurs when you combine Editor Templates with view models that contain a “Title” property.  Here’s a workaround: I needed to quickly see what the maximum scale was for all the decimal columns across all tables in a database: Humanizer has become one of those things I
add to just about every project these days.  It can do awesome things like normalizing Pascal and Camel case to both normal and title case, it can convert enums to strings using Description attributes, and it can easily handle pluralization when you want to say “1 unit” or “2 units.”   Check it out! Need to know what properties have changed when you are saving changes with Entity Framework? If you are doing mobile web apps, you MUST read this:  Using 'translate3d' instead of 'left' for animating with AngularJS makes a...(Read whole news on source site)

The C# Coding Guidelines are now open-source!

The ability for an organisation to request the original Microsoft Word files and adapt them for internal use has always been an important recommendation of the C# Coding Guidelines. Since I first published the PDFs on CodePlex in 2009, I have received numerous requests for that, but the process has always been a bit cumbersome. Hence my decision to convert the guidelines into MarkDown and to push them to a new GitHub repository. The corresponding license, based on one of the template licenses provided by Creative Commons, allows you to fork, adapt and distribute that
modified version within your organization as long as you refer back to the original version on GitHub. It's not required, but you would make me a very happy man if you credit me as the original author. And if you have any great ideas, recommendations or corrections, either submit an issue, or even better, fork the repository and provide me with a pull request. Notice that I decided to use some of the features provided by Markdown Extra because that allows me a bit more control on the generated PDF that I will ultimately publish back...(Read whole news on source site)

A tale of two interviews

We’ve been trying to find more people recently, and that means sifting trouble people. Once that process is done, we ask them to come to our offices for an interview. We recently had two interviews from people that were diametrically opposed to one another. Just to steal my own thunder, we decided not to go forward with either one of them. Before inviting them to an interview, I have them do a few coding questions at home. Those are things like: Given a big CSV file (that fit in memory), allow to speedily query by name or email. The
application will run for long period of time, and startup time isn’t very important. Given a very large file (multiple TB), detect what 4MB ranges has changed in the file between consecutive runs of your program. We’ll call the first one Joe. Joe has a lot of experience, he has been doing software for a long time, and has already had the chance to be a team lead in a couple of previous positions. He sent us some really interesting code. Usually I get a class or three in those answers. In this case, we got something that looked like...(Read whole news on source site)
