  1. Introduction to Progressive Web Apps

    As some people know, I have been very passionate about Windows Phone since the early days of the platform. I am still using a Windows 10 Mobile device, and I still love the operating system and the Windows 10 platform. However, I am not living in a cave, and I do realise that the future potential of the Windows mobile platform is limited. I still don't think it is "dead", but it is certainly limited. I started learning Xamarin a couple of years ago, to use my C# knowledge and skills for building...
  2. How to read and parse a CSV file using Node.JS

    I was recently asked by someone to give an example of how to read a csv file in their node.js application, and how to parse it to get it to be usable in their app. In fact what they wanted to do is very simple, and it is one of the many reasons I'm a big fan of Node.js, because not only can it do things like this in a few lines of JavaScript, it does it server side, and fast. So This article lays out step by step how to have node.js read and parse a CSV file stored in it's project, by using the CSV...

  5. Karma Test Results with TFS Build

    Our team has been using JasmineJs for unit testing our client side JavaScript code. We now have over 3,000 tests! In order to run these tests on multiple browsers we use Karma, the "Spectacular Test Runner for JavaScript" created by people from Google to run all our tests on multiple browsers. We are also using Microsoft's TFS Build (which is leaps and bounds improved over the old XAML build system) to run our tests in Gated Check ins, create build artifacts (dlls, installers, Azure...
  6. The Power of PowerShell.. And the Shell..

    "What is the one technology I need to learn to get a job like the one you have?" - this is a question I've received from time to time, and my answer would vary, depending on who asked. Or rather; who I perceive the questioner to be - I cannot *know* for a fact what most suits his or her particular ambitions and style.. But in the last few years my answer, more often than not, has been "PowerShell"! Simply because I see it as one of the most important and game-changing technologies to come out of...
