Git Alias To Migrate Commits To A Branch

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
Show of hands if this ever happens to you. After a long day of fighting fires at work, you settle into your favorite chair to unwind and write code. Your fingers fly over the keyboard punctuating your code with semi-colons or parentheses or whatever is appropriate. But after a few commits, it dawns on you that you're in the wrong branch. Yeah? Me too. This happens to me all the time because I lack impulse control. You can put your hands down now. GitHub Flow As you may know, a key component of the GitHub Flow lightweight workflow is to do all
new feature work in a branch. Fixing a bug? Create a branch! Adding a new feature? Create a branch! Need to climb a tree? Well, you get the picture. So what happens when you run into the situation I just described? Are you stuck? Heavens no! The thing about Git is that its very design supports fixing up mistakes after the fact. It's very forgiving in this regard. For example, a recent blog post on the GitHub blog highlights all the different ways you can undo mistakes in Git. The Easy Case - Fixing master This is the simple case. I...(Read whole news on source site)

Scheduler .NET Tips: How to Attach Multiple Files to Calendar Event

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
We have previously updated Scheduler .NET documentation with the new article telling how to implement custom editors (controls) for the lightbox editing form. This time we show you how to implement this functionality for a particular use case. Let's say we need an ability to attach one or multiple files to scheduler appointment - it may be documents, spreadsheets, images, etc. In order to do this we'll need to implement a control that will allow uploading, downloading and opening files related to the appointment. Get a ready to download sample with file uploader now:
We won't code all of this logic
from scratch and use some ready uploader widget called DHTMLX Uploader, however, you can use any other js component that allows file upload.  Please, let us know if you require any other tips. You can leave your comments below or send us your feedback. ...(Read whole news on source site)

Aurelia Part Two

Please read my first post for an introduction. At the end of that post I said that it takes a long time for the site to load, something I attributed mainly down to the fact that the JavaScript was not bundled, so Chrome was making many network requests to get the content. Here is the devtools network tab of the site running locally (hence why it is much faster than what I saw running on github pages).. In this post, I will cover bundling. I’ll try not to cover what Rob Eisenberg has already blogged about - please read that
post for a good introduction. My first port of call is creating the Aurelia file which will control what is bundled. Lets talk through that file.
var aurelia = require('aurelia-cli'); aurelia.command('bundle', {
First we get the Aurelia cli and register a bundle command. The long-term intention seems to be that you could register multiple commands to set up parts of the project. I find this a bit strange, given the heavy use of other tools and that the example project uses gulp, I would have thought concentrating on making a gulp-aurelia-bundler would have made more sense.

Dealing with People You Can’t Stand

“If You Want To Go Fast, Go Alone. If You Want To Go Far, Go Together” – African Proverb I blew the dust off some olds posts to rekindle some of the most important information for work and life. It’s about dealing with people you can’t stand. Whether you think of them as jerks, bullies, or just difficult people, the better you can deal with difficult people, the better you can get things done and make things happen. And the more you learn how to bring out the best, in people at their worst, the less
you’ll find people you can’t stand. How To Bring Out the Best in People at Their Worst (Including Yourself) Everything I needed to learn about dealing with difficult people, I learned from the book Dealing with People You Can’t Stand: How to Bring Out the Best in People at Their Worst, by Dr. Rick Brinkman and Dr. Rick Kirschner. It’s one of the most brilliant, thoughtful books I’ve ever read on interpersonal skills and dealing with all sorts of bad behaviors. The real key to dealing with difficult behavior is more than just...(Read whole news on source site)
