#1,183 – Where Data Templates Are Used

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
Data templates dictate how bound data is mapped to one or more control.  A data template can be used in two places: As value of ContentTemplate property for a ContentControl  (e.g. a Label) As value of ItemTemplate property for an ItemsControl  (e.g. a ListBox) Here’s an example of a DataTemplate used as the ContentTemplate for a Label: Here’s an example of a DataTemplate used as the ItemTemplate […]

Career planning: Where do old devs go to?

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
We are pretty much always looking for new people, what is holding us back from expanding even more rapidly is the time that it takes to get to grips with our codebases and what we do here. But that also means that we usually have at least one outstanding job offer available, because it takes a long time to fill it. But that isn’t the topic for this post. I started programming in school, I was around 14 / 15 at the time, and I picked up a copy of VB 3.0 and did some fairly unimpressive stuff with it.
I count my time as a professional since around 1999 or so. That is the time when I started actually dedicating myself to learning programming as something beyond a hobby. That was 15 years ago. When we started doing a lot of interviews, I noticed that we had the following pattern regarding developers’ availabilities: That sort of made sense, some people got into software development for the money and left because it didn’t interest them. From the history of Hibernating Rhinos, one of our developers left and is now co-owner in a restaurant, another is a salesman...(Read whole news on source site)

Cancelling Route Navigation in AngularJS

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
This post has been updated to cover AngularJS 1.3+.
Routing provides a nice way to associate views with controllers in AngularJS using a minimal amount of code. While a user is normally able to navigate directly to a specific route, there may be times when a user triggers a route change before they’ve finalized an important action such as saving data.  In this type of situation you may want to cancel the route navigation and ask the user if they’d like to finish what they were doing so that their data isn’t lost. In another situation the user may try
to navigate to a view that requires some type of login or other special handling. If the user hasn’t logged in yet the app can automatically redirect them to a login screen (keep in mind that for security the server always has to double-check things since JavaScript can easily be changed). When route navigation occurs in an AngularJS application a few key events are raised. One is named $locationChangeStart and the other is $routeChangeStart. Starting with AngularJS 1.3+ this is the order that events fire (see this commit by Tobias Bosch for more details):
$locationChangeStart...(Read whole news on source site)

SharePoint MVP AMA on October 29th

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
You should mark the 29th of October at 1pm EST (18:00 CET) in your calendar. The MVP Chats are back! A couple of years back we regularly held MVP chats where anyone could ask SharePoint MVPs anything (almost at least). These chats was really successful and we received really good feedback. Unfortunately the tool we used for the chats was abandoned and we have been looking for a new way to do this. We think we’ve found a really interesting format for this by using the AMA format at Reddit (/r/sharepoint). There will be at least
fifteen SharePoint MVP’s answering YOUR questions so feel free to tune it the 29th. We will try to make sure that at least one MVP answers your question, the ones most skilled in the topic of the question, and we’ll make sure that not everyone answers it (which normally is an issue with forums like this). We will have experts from infrastructure, to design, to development, to no-code (all definitions of that!) solutions and more, for both SharePoint and Office 365 This will be a great opportunity for all of you to finally get that hard question answered. If...(Read whole news on source site)

Print out the maximum depth of recursion allowed

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
Karl Seguin tweeted the following earlier this week: "An interview question I sometimes ask: Write code that prints out the maximum depth of recursion allowed."

This question is interesting for a couple of reasons. First, it's a shorter FizzBuzz; can the candidate open an IDE, write a few lines of code, compile and run them? And second, does he know what recursion is?

Now let's say, the interviewee knows how to write code and is familiar with the concept of recursion. If he had to do this exercise in C#, he might come up
with something along these lines.

Before you let him run his code, you ask him to guess the output of this little program. If he's smart, he won't give you much of an answer. Instead he will point out that the result depends on the runtime, compiler, compiler switches, machine architecture, the amount of available memory and what not.

If he's not familiar with the C# compiler and runtime, he might even say there's a chance the integer will overflow before the call stack does.
The recursive method call is the last call in this method, making it...(Read whole news on source site)
