Building Single Page Apps with HTML5, Knockout, jQuery, and Web API - Part 3 - Server Technologies

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
Some skills never go out of fashion. Managing data and serving it up to a client is one of those skills. Sure, the technologies change and the way we use them, but we’re still gathering and delivering data. Recently I wrote about how my new course is progressing for Pluralsight. The course, titled “Building Single Page Apps (SPA) with HTML5, ASP.NET Web API, Knockout and jQuery” , is an end to end course. This means I cover the app and how it uses all of the technologies to produce the SPA. You can read the previous posts in this
series here: Part 1 - The Story Begins (What is the Code Camper SPA?) Part 2 - Client Technologies Today I’ll share some insights on the server technologies I am using in Code Camper SPA. The diagram below shows the key ingredients I used to create the server technologies. One of the goals of this architecture is to surface the data in an simple way so I can add new ways to get to the data or even add new data fairly quickly. The main idea was to keep the Web API’s methods simple, which...(Read whole news on source site)

How to enable Delete Confirmation Dialog in Windows 8?

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
I have been trying the Windows 8 Consumer Preview and here’s one thing that I noticed about the Confirmation Dialog. By default, the Windows 8 doesn’t ask you for the confirmation when deleting a file or a folder. So, when you press a delete key on selecting a file or a folder, the file/folder is deleted straight away and moved to the Recycle bin. If you want to enable the “Delete ConfirmationR Read More....

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
Few days I have written a blog post about Multiple file upload with asp.net 4.5 and Visual studio 2012. It was greatly appreciated by the community and also been part of www.asp.net community daily spot light.  On that post one of my reader Ciwan Kurd has requested the asp.net mvc version of that post. So in this post I will explain how we can do multiple file upload with HTML5. For this post I am going to use asp.net mvc 3 with HTML5 template and visual studio 2012
but you can use same techniques in any version of asp.net mvc.  First things we needs to do create a HTML form for the uploading file in asp.net mvc view so following is a code for that. @using (Html.BeginForm("Upload", "Home", FormMethod.Post, new { enctype = "multipart/form-data" })) { } In above code that I have use @HTML.BeginForm to create a HTML form with multipart as this attribute is required to upload any kind of files on the server.

Time Management Tips #8 - Power Up with Purpose

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
Nothing helps you stay the course, or pick up the pace, or deal with setbacks like purpose.  One of the best ways to focus, get your groove on, and make things happen is the power of purpose. Time management tips #8 is power up with purpose.  Purpose is they "why" behind what you do.  It gives you a meaningful mission to apply your strengths, experience, and talent.  In the absence of purpose, you lose your drive.  After all, it's hard to bring out your best when there's no
motivating mission. Purpose comes in all shapes and sizes.  Some say, "Go big or go home."  For many, that's a way to step up to the plate.  A way to swing with all their might.  A way to dream big dreams.  Here's what this might look like: - I’m the researcher who finds the truth.
- I’m the developer who writes the code to change the world.
- I’m the coach who helps make others great.
- I’m the musician who makes people feel alive. ...(Read whole news on source site)

Remote Work: Placeshift and Stay Highly Collaborative Part 2–Focus on YOU

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
Companies want to hire the type of person that is cut out to be a remote worker. The type of person that can be a remote worker is the type of person that excels at their work and that is what companies are always looking for. In the first part of this series we talked about what remote work is and how a business benefits from remote workers. In this article we are going to focus on you. What does it take to be a remote worker? Is remote work possible in your job? How do you work from home
when there are distractions? NOTE: The following is not a definitive list and not true for every situation. Some of this represents what works well for me in my experiences over the last few years. Can YOU be a Remote Worker? Are you the remote worker type? This is always an interesting question. You can learn behaviors, I don’t believe this is a type that you are either born into or not. I think this is something you can learn and become if you just know how. So what are the key behaviors to being a remote worker? Surprisingly they are strikingly...(Read whole news on source site)

Strongly Typed Delete With NHibernate

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
To my great satisfaction, LINQ is nowadays present everywhere, from XML processing, to database querying, including SharePoint. The “Q” in it standing for Query, it’s not a surprise that is mainly being used for querying, but it would be interesting to use it for other scenarios, such as updating and deleting. I would like to be able to do this in NHibernate:
1: session.Query().Where(x => x.IsDiscontinued == true).Delete();
The only alternatives I have at the moment is HQL or SQL, but, as we know, it is not strongly-typed,
and thus not refactor-friendly. I even suggested it to the NHibernate team, for the new major versions coming on. It would be easy to achieve this by resorting to LINQ to Objects, I would just have to force materialization of every entity coming from the query, and then issue a ISession.Delete on each them. Not very wise, though. I decided to write my own solution. Consider this extension method:
1: public static class QueryableExtensions 2: { 3: ...(Read whole news on source site)
