New Article – Backbone.js at a Glance

Yesterday, DotNetCurry magazine published an article that I wrote. The article introduces Backbone.js, a front-end MVC library, that I used in various of successful projects. While I’m using other MVW libraries/frameworks as well (AngularJS and Knockout.js for example), I’m always happy to return to Backbone.js and use it in projects. Here is were you can […]

Technical Presentation Tips and Tricks

The very first technical presentation I gave was in the mid-nineties for a supply chain management company. Prior to that presentation my only experience had been giving an instructional talk about hacky-sack to fellow students for a speech class. I still remember standing in front of the room and completely forgetting everything I was about to say. Some of the people in the front row actually had looks of concern and pity on their faces as they saw me mumble and stumble through my introduction. I eventually was able to get moving and pull it off but it wasn’t exactly
a stellar experience for anyone involved. Warning: Long Post Ahead! This is a large collection of thoughts so my intention is to gather them all here so you have a post you can come back to reference as needed. I encourage other presenters to share their own thoughts, feedback, tips, and tricks in the comments so this can evolve as a resource for aspiring presenters.

The Single Page Application (or SPA) moniker is one I’ve always disliked (as you’d know if you follow me on Twitter). But it’s not the technology I have a problem with, it’s the moniker and the implications of the moniker. The Technology Behind the Moniker I started doing web development in the ‘90s on ASP (no, not ASP.NET). This was a
treasure trove of open database connections, imported headers, and clunky HTML. I never thought we’d get to where the web was a mature platform to develop upon. In the past few years, technologies like Knockout, AngularJS, BackboneJS and the like have all contributed to a richer client-side experience. No longer were we dependent on post-backs or page requests to get the job done. Things are good. They are really good. What these technologies have in common is an application model on the client. They go about it in different ways, but the real revolution is the ability to build up...(Read whole news on source site)
