  • Blog Post: 30 Days of Bootstrap with the MVC Framework–Week 2

    Last week I shared here on the Developer Connection that I've started on this adventure of blogging 30 days in a row, all with the intent of giving you, the readers, exercises in the neighborhood of 10-15 minutes a day. It's shaping up to be a good introductory lesson plan that you can consume at your...
  • Blog Post: 30 Days of Bootstrap with the MVC Framework

    Over the last several years I've had the privilege of meeting some great folks across the country, great developers who have solid jobs and who are typically focused on long-running projects. The barrier, they say, to jumping into a new language, technology or framework is simply that they don’t have...
  • Blog Post: Canada Does Windows Azure: Icicle

    I believe that the best way to learn is to learn from each other, so I’m always on the search for stories of Canadian developers who have either built new applications using Windows Azure services or have migrated existing applications to Windows Azure . This is the story of Burton Software and Icicle...
  • Blog Post: Building Beautiful, Interactive, and Fast Web Sites

    In order to build beautiful, interactive, and fast web sites, there’s a recipe you can follow which includes, but certainly isn’t limited to, the use of technologies such as ASP.NET, HTML5, jQuery, WebAPI, SignalR, and Windows Azure .

By now, you’ve probably seen the tech news reports as well as Scott Guthrie’s announcement about WebMatrix , Microsoft’s lightweight web development web development system that packages a web development tool with a number of new web technologies: IIS Developer Express: a lightweight...
  • Blog Post: Interview on ASP.NET MVC and Open Source at Microsoft

    I’m looking a tad sleep-deprived in this interview – I was quite busy around the end of February and the start of March -- but I managed to stay conscious long enough at the Confoo conference to do an interview with CT Moore (back in early march) and talk about my presentation, which covered both ASP...
  • Blog Post: First a Django Guy and Now a Microsoft Guy: “Thank You, Rails”

    Platform wars are like monkey knife fights: amusing at first, but regrettable and messy in the end. You don’t see this very often, and it’s a shame: Jacob Kaplan-Moss, co-creator of Django, the Python-based MVC web application framework, wrote a great article titled Thank You, Rails . From the article...
  • Blog Post: The Best “Chapter One” I’ve Ever Read

    As a rule, Chapter One of most programming books seems to leave me with a vague, unsatisfied feeling. I usually finish them with either: A “Hello World”-style application that provides an initial “It compiled!” rush, but little else, or A “Trees dies for this?” sort of indignation, if the chapter is...
