China has 56 different ethnic groups, who speak 292 distinct languages; India embraces about 20 official languages, hundreds of dialects, and four major religious traditions; Brazil’s citizens are among the
world’s most ethnically and culturally diverse; the residents of Africa’s 53 countries speak an estimated 2,000 different languages and dialects. Even geographically proximate tier-one cities can be radically different. Consider Guangzhou and Shenzhen, two southern Chinese metropolitan centers of comparable size, separated by a distance of just 100 kilometers. In the former, the majority of consumers are locally born Cantonese speakers. In the latter, more than 80 percent are migrants who communicate in Mandarin and, reflecting their disparate regional origins, have far more diverse tastes in consumer electronics, fashion, and food.

Greenfield Development with ASP.NET MVC & S#arp Lite - Introduction

A series of posts providing proven guidance for developing ASP.NET MVC applications from idea to well-designed implementation. So you’ve landed your first project!  Just days ago your client came to you and said “I’ve got a great idea and I want you to build it!”  With unwavering confidence, you quickly retorted “And I’ll build it, and it’ll be friggin’ awesome!”  You agree to a price, you put all the business paperwork in place, and you’re ready to get coding…you sit down at the computer, raring to go, and think to yourself “Now where the hell do I start?” To begin with, you’ve already
gotten ahead of yourself.  Before a single key stroke of code is developed, it’s time to do some planning.  And once the planning is done - and only after that - it’ll be time to turn those plans into maintainable, tested code. While there are plenty of coding samples of design patterns and "best practices," it’s sometimes difficult to figure out how the developer got from an empty directory in Windows Explorer to an implemented piece of architectural and functional beauty.  This series of posts will walk you through the basics of the project life cycle, from project inception to project...(Read whole news on source site)

NHibernate Pitfalls: Inheritance and Proxies

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
This is part of a series of posts about NHibernate Pitfalls. See the entire collection here. If you use inheritance and lazy loading, you may end up with the following situation: You want to access a lazy loaded property of a base class type, of which you don’t know the exact type; You want to do different operations depending on the actual type. That is usually expressed by this mapping:
1: public class MyEntity
2: { 3: public virtual SomeBaseClass SomeProperty 4: { 5: get; 6: set; 7: } 8: } 9:  10: public abstract...(Read whole news on source site)
