Dealing with People You Can’t Stand

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
“If You Want To Go Fast, Go Alone. If You Want To Go Far, Go Together” – African Proverb I blew the dust off some olds posts to rekindle some of the most important information for work and life. It’s about dealing with people you can’t stand. Whether you think of them as jerks, bullies, or just difficult people, the better you can deal with difficult people, the better you can get things done and make things happen. And the more you learn how to bring out the best, in people at their worst, the less
you’ll find people you can’t stand. How To Bring Out the Best in People at Their Worst (Including Yourself) Everything I needed to learn about dealing with difficult people, I learned from the book Dealing with People You Can’t Stand: How to Bring Out the Best in People at Their Worst, by Dr. Rick Brinkman and Dr. Rick Kirschner. It’s one of the most brilliant, thoughtful books I’ve ever read on interpersonal skills and dealing with all sorts of bad behaviors. The real key to dealing with difficult behavior is more than just...(Read whole news on source site)

My Entities, Validation and View Models Course

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
A few weeks back, I released a new course on Pluralsight. This new course talks through what I consider “Best Practices” (though there are no absolutes) for ASP.NET Entitles, View Models, and Validation. I was tremendously pleased to find it made it into the top ten courses for a few days. It seems to be resonating with some students and that makes me really happy. If you’re writing ASP.NET code, this course could make your job easier! The course covers: Designing Entitles (Relational or NoSQL) Use Case for View Models in ASP.NET Mapping Between Entities and View Models
Using Validation in ASP.NET MVC Applying these principals to ASP.NET Web API If you’re a Pluralsight subscriber, you can view the course here:

Silverlight and DevExpress Universal v15.1

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
You may have noticed something peculiar once you’d installed v15.1: no Silverlight controls came as a part of the product and hence were no longer present on your machine. Wait, what? Back in December 2014, at the time of the v14.2 release, I announced that we were no longer going to update and enhance the Silverlight controls (Silverlight’s future at DevExpress). I’ll quote the relevant summary: …we made the decision to put our Silverlight controls into maintenance mode as well – in fact, we
have already forked the code. We will not be providing any new functionality for our Silverlight controls but will provide maintenance updates to fix any issues as and when necessary. We have already stopped selling DevExpress Silverlight as a separate product (either as a new subscription or as a maintenance subscription) and it is now only available as part of DXperience or Universal. However, we then made a pretty big faux pas: we removed the controls completely from our products in v15.1, despite our promise to keep it available with DXperience and Universal subscriptions, and despite the...(Read whole news on source site)

Customize Authentication Header in SwaggerUI using Swashbuckle

Originally posted on: has quickly established itself as an important tool for building Web API’s for any platform. Swagger enables interactive documentation and client SDK generation/discoverability. One of the most frequently used Swagger tools is Swagger UI. Swagger UI provides automatically generated HTML assets that give you automatic documentation and even an online test tool. To see Swagger UI in action, check out their demo page. Although Swagger/Swagger UI can be used for any platform, the Swashbuckle library makes integrating Swagger UI into a .NET Web API app a breeze. In fact, Azure
API Apps specifically leverage Swagger via Swashbuckle to provide the metadata for Azure API apps. Most of the out of the box features of Swagger work great. However, there are times when you need to customize this behavior. For example, by default Swagger UI gives you a textbox for for the “API key”. When you execute the request, it simply puts this API key into a query string variable called “api_key” as shown in the screen shot: But what do you do if you need some other type of authentication? Perhaps you need Basic Auth...(Read whole news on source site)
