Hereford Node.js Talk

I stopped by the small town of Hereford to talk to them about Node.js on Monday. The small, but very enthusiastic group was great! If you get a chance stop by and visit this adorable small town. I have a talk on Node.js for .NET Developers and while I doubt I convinced everyone to try it out, I am hoping I got the ASP.NET guys to think about async in their controllers. Here are the promised resources from the talk: Slides Code Thanks again for having me!

I updated my Motivational Quotes page. I’ve got more than 100 motivational quotes on the page to help you find your inner-fire. It’s not your ordinary motivational quotes list.   It’s deep and it draws from several masters of inspiration including Bruce Lee, Jim Rohn, and Zig Ziglar. Here is a sampling of some of my personal favorite motivational quotes .. “If you always put limit on everything you do, physical or anything else. It will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and
you must not stay there, you must go beyond them.” – Bruce Lee “Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do.” - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe “Kites rise highest against the wind; not with it.” – Winston Churchill “To hell with circumstances; I create opportunities.” – Bruce Lee “Our greatest glory is not in never falling but in rising every time we fall.” – Confucius “There is no such thing as failure. There are only results.” – Tony Robbins “When it’s time to die, let us not discover...(Read whole news on source site)

Use the Mobile App Mix to Choose an Enterprise App Store Strategy

In organizations developing custom apps and modifying third-party apps, MADPs are

Alternatively, if EMM

Universal Apps, WP8.1, xUnit2 or what else is new in Fluent Assertions 3.1

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
Yesterday, much later than planned, Fluent Assertions 3.1 as well as its companion project Fluent Assertions for Xamarin were released on Github and NuGet. As is becoming quite common this year, the honors for most active contributors once again go to Adam Voss and Oren Novotny. Next to being the author of the Xamarin version of FA, Oren contributed the necessary internal redesign to support Univeral Apps, Windows 8.1, Windows Phone Silverlight 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1. But as if he didn't do enough, he also found the time to add support for xUnit 2.
At the same time, Adam has been instrumental in solving the many little bugs reported through Github as well as refactoring and improving a lot of the code related to the structural equivalancy assertion API. Another contributor, Kevin Kyszyk, introduced a syntax to assert that a particular assembly doesn't reference another one. I've focused a considerable portion of my free time on rewriting the internal detection logic that is used to connect the framework-specific parts into the core Portable Class Library. My original assumption that sooner or later somebody would touch the AssertionExtensions class was wrong. I'm now...(Read whole news on source site)
