Defining and Dealing with Technical Debt | CSS-Tricks

shame.css – CSS Wizardry – CSS, OOCSS, front-end architecture, performance and more, by Harry Roberts

Keep all known compromises in this file and use it as a task list of
debts that need to be repaid. And, like a large credit card bill, make
an effort to at least clear the minimum payment for the month.

It may seem like making a pool for technical debt is a bad idea. But it's known technical debt - which you could think

Years ago, I was talking with a friend – a firefighter named, John. He was called out to a home as a first responder to an… “emergency”. A child of 8 or 9 had tried to squeeze himself through the railing of the back porch at home, and got his head stuck. The family had […]

DevExpress VCL Subscription v15.1.5 released, with full support for Delphi 10 Seattle

Just a quick note to say that we released v15.1.5 of the DevExpress VCL Subscription today. The main new feature of this release is adding full support for Delphi 10 Seattle (DX) and C++Builder 10 Seattle (CX), collectively known as RAD Studio 10 Seattle (RX). So download it today from your Download Portal if you are using DX, CX, or RX (and especially if you were using the “unofficial” support for them that had crept into v15.1.4). There are a couple of new enhancements as well. The biggest one (and the one that delayed
us a little in our full support for DX, CX and RX because of the extra testing we had to do) is we’ve added the capability to print the ExpressRichEdit Control. The grid’s main improvement has been speeding up its export capabilities, especially when the layout information is not required. There have been numerous other resolved issues as is usual when we release a minor version. See here for the full list. ...(Read whole news on source site)

Three weeks ago, we released Visual Studio Tools for Apache Cordova Update 2. Last week, we introduced you to a new TACO CLI. Now we’re back with Update 3, which is automatically included when you install Visual Studio 2015. If you’re an existing user of Visual Studio 2015, you’ll receive a notification to download and install today. This release significantly improves the tools’ stability by fixing 13 of the top issues reported on Stack Overflow. Here are three of the most notable changes reported by developers: Addresses blocking issue when trying to use the Tools for Apache Cordova
along with the ASP.NET 5 Beta 7 release. (First reported by “Pablo Martinez”)
Previously, after installing ASP.NET 5 Beta 7, Cordova projects would fail when opening with an error message that says “An equivalent project (a project with the same global properties and tools version) is already present in the project collection…”
Deploying to Windows Phone 8 devices now works when emulators are not installed. (First reported by “ando”)
Before this fix, Visual Studio showed an error saying that “no emulators are installed” and stopped deploying to the device.

The Working Programmer - How To Be MEAN: Express Install

In the last installment (,
I showed how to install a Node.js application into Microsoft Azure.
Because doing this is essentially just committing to a Git repository
(and then pushing those commits to the Azure remote repository), I’ll
leave those out in this and future columns, at least until I start
talking to other services (such as MongoDB) on the Azure platform.

The MongoDB, Express, AngularJS, Node.js (MEAN) stack is an alternative
“Web stack” (some say
complementary, others say supplementary) to the
ASP.NET stack to which .NET developers are accustomed....(Read whole news on source site)

Visual Studio - Bower: Modern Tools for Web Development

Doesn’t NuGet work just fine for packages, and isn’t msbuild sufficient
as a build tool? The answer to both questions is yes—in many but not all
scenarios. And for those cases where conventional tools don’t suffice,
Grunt, Gulp and Bower can help. In a Web project, you might want to
compile your Sass whenever a CSS file changes. Or you may want to get
the latest Bootstrap or Angular release without waiting for someone at
Microsoft to create a NuGet package
from it. 

Because npm isn’t provided as a standalone download, simply install Node.js from
