Continuing on this series of posts where I’ve been exploring the Kinect for Windows V2 SDK , I have seen the video on Channel 9 which talks about custom gesture recognition; and I’ve also seen my colleague Pete demonstrating how custom gesture recognition works...(read more
We are pretty much always looking for new people, what is holding us back from expanding even more rapidly is the time that it takes to get to grips with our codebases and what we do here. But that also means that we usually have at least one outstanding job offer available, because it takes a long time to fill it. But that isn’t the topic for this post. I started programming in school, I was around 14 / 15 at the time, and I picked up a copy of VB 3.0 and did some fairly unimpressive stuff with it.
I count my time as a professional since around 1999 or so. That is the time when I started actually dedicating myself to learning programming as something beyond a hobby. That was 15 years ago. When we started doing a lot of interviews, I noticed that we had the following pattern regarding developers’ availabilities:
That sort of made sense, some people got into software development for the money and left because it didn’t interest them. From the history of Hibernating Rhinos, one of our developers left and is now co-owner in a restaurant
, another is a salesman...(Read whole news on source site)

ASP.NET vNext comes with new runtime environment called KRE. Besides KRE that runs ASP.NET vNext applications there are also tools for managing KRE versions and NuGet packages that application uses. This posting gives you quick overview about K-world components and explains shortly how to use them.

This post has been updated to cover AngularJS 1.3+.
Routing provides a nice way to associate views with controllers in AngularJS using a minimal amount of code. While a user is normally able to navigate directly to a specific route, there may be times when a user triggers a route change before they’ve finalized an important action such as saving data. In this type of situation you may want to cancel the route navigation and ask the user if they’d like to finish what they were doing so that their data isn’t lost. In another situation the user may try
and the other is $routeChangeStart
. Starting with AngularJS 1.3+ this is the order that events fire (see this commit
by Tobias Bosch
for more details): $locationChangeStart...(Read whole news on source site)
Here’s an question that aroused during an discussion with one of my friend . When do you drop old technologies from your resume as a programmer ? . Do you really mention every technologies that the programmer has worked on in their resume ? In the beginning of their career , some of the developers [...]

You should mark the 29th of October at 1pm EST (18:00 CET) in your calendar. The MVP Chats are back!
A couple of years back we regularly held MVP chats where anyone could ask SharePoint MVPs anything (almost at least). These chats was really successful and we received really good feedback. Unfortunately the tool we used for the chats was abandoned and we have been looking for a new way to do this. We think we’ve found a really interesting format for this by using the AMA
format at Reddit
). There will be at least
fifteen SharePoint MVP’s answering YOUR questions so feel free to tune it the 29th. We will try to make sure that at least one MVP answers your question, the ones most skilled in the topic of the question, and we’ll make sure that not everyone answers it (which normally is an issue with forums like this). We will have experts from infrastructure, to design, to development, to no-code (all definitions of that!) solutions and more, for both SharePoint and Office 365 This will be a great opportunity for all of you to finally get that hard question answered. If...(Read whole news on source site)

tweeted the following earlier this week: "An interview question I sometimes ask: Write code that prints out the maximum depth of recursion allowed."
This question is interesting for a couple of reasons. First, it's a shorter FizzBuzz
; can the candidate open an IDE, write a few lines of code, compile and run them? And second, does he know what recursion is?
Now let's say, the interviewee knows how to write code and is familiar with the concept of recursion. If he had to do this exercise in C#, he might come up
with something along these lines.
Before you let him run his code, you ask him to guess the output of this little program. If he's smart, he won't give you much of an answer. Instead he will point out that the result depends on the runtime, compiler, compiler switches, machine architecture, the amount of available memory and what not.
If he's not familiar with the C# compiler and runtime, he might even say there's a chance the integer will overflow before the call stack does.
The recursive method call is the last call in this method, making it...(Read whole news on source site)
So, we are done with the holidays here. The last month was basically very little work, because a lot of our people were out for the holidays. Internally, we are gearing up to finish the website for RavenDB 3.0, while another part of the team is focused on stability and performance. We just hired another new guy, and he is going to be working pretty much on distribution from now on. I’ll report more on that in a few weeks. Looking at the blog, I’ve mostly been talking about RavenDB, and I want to do a small shift and talk
about other topics, so I’m declaring the next two weeks to be RavenDB free weeks. I’m going to continue to blog regularly, of course, but I’m going to be talking about other topics for a change. Don’t worry, we haven’t stopped working on RavenDB, it is just that it is pretty boring to hear about things like test clusters, or how we work on issues from the people trying out the RC builds. ...(Read whole news on source site)
