Building Mobile Apps with Ionic and Monaca

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
Cordova makes it easy to build an app for iOS, Android, or Windows using web technologies. While the Blank project templates provide all the raw materials to build your basic “Hello World”, you’ve told us that you’d like to see richer starting points that use best practices vetted by the community, well-modeled design patterns, and advice on how to make slick-looking apps in less time. We hear you! We’ve collaborated with some of the most respected mobile developers in the industry to bring great starting points into Visual Studio. Specifically, we called upon the wizards at Ionic and Monaca
to give you project templates based on their libraries which use AngularJS routers, modules, controllers and factories. The templates allow you to use the Ionic or Onsen UI frameworks to build mobile apps with a native look and feel, right within Visual Studio. To build Apache Cordova apps based on these Project Templates, simply head over to the Visual Studio Gallery and install the Ionic Templates and Monaca templates individually. In a few clicks, you will be able to see these templates in the New Project dialog:Note: Currently, the Ionic templates are only available for JavaScript. We...(Read whole news on source site)

Advice For Speakers: Know Your Point

Originally posted on: It has happened to all of us.  You go to a conference and sit down in a session that has a great title and abstract only to sit through a long winded talk that has nothing to do what you were sold.  As a speaker myself I find that this is a good reminder of the questions that you need to ask yourself as you prepare your material. Each session we put together has a limited amount of time.  Review your content to make
sure that every point you make has some bearing on your stated subject.  Is each example or slide going to give the audience a better understanding of the topic?  One of the best ways to do this is to start with an outline as this gives you simple bullet points to review. The next step is that each slide or demo should relate back to those bullet points from your outline.  As each slide is completed make sure that you review the content to make sure you haven’t strayed from this outline item it was intended to cover. ...(Read whole news on source site)

RavenDB Sharding: Enabling shards for existing database

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
A question came up in the mailing list, how do we enable sharding for an existing database. I’ll deal with data migration in this scenario at a later post. The scenario is that we have a very successful application, and we start to feel the need to move the data to multiple shards. Currently all the data is sitting in the RVN1 server. We want to add RVN2 and RVN3 to the mix. For this post, we’ll assume that we have the notion of Customers and Invoices. Previously, we access the database using a simple document store:
documentStore = new DocumentStore { Url = "http://RVN1:8080", DefaultDatabase = "Shop" };
Now, we want to move to a sharded environment, so we want to write it like this. Existing data is going to stay where it is at, and new data will be sharded according to geographical location.
var shards = new Dictionary { {"Origin", new DocumentStore {Url = "http://RVN1:8080", DefaultDatabase = "Shop"}},//existing data {"ME", new DocumentStore {Url = "http://RVN2:8080", DefaultDatabase = "Shop_ME"}}, {"US", new DocumentStore {Url = "http://RVN3:8080", DefaultDatabase = "Shop_US"}}, }; var shardStrategy = new ShardStrategy(shards) .ShardingOn(c => c.Region) .ShardingOn (i => i.Customer); var documentStore = new ShardedDocumentStore(shardStrategy).Initialize();
This wouldn’t actually work. We are going to have to do a bit more....(Read whole news on source site)
