  1. The Path is Null and Full of Squiggles

    I've been using Visual Studio 2017 since the earliest bits were available and I can confidently say, I'm a fan and highly recommend you give it a shot if you get a chance.With that being said, sometimes new features can cause things to blow up and this post is going to be discussing one of those such features, namely Lightweight Solution Load.Recently, I opened up a decently sized solution (~9 projects) and everything seemed in order. All of my dependencies were there, with no warning signs to be...
  2. Glyphfriend 2.1 Released! Now with Library Filtering

    It hasn't been too long since the latest 2.0 release of Glyphfriend, but with the release of Visual Studio 2017 coming around the corner, there were a few things that could use some improvement and polishing off before then.Message received, loud and clear.All of the changes that were made to make the extension more flexible actually resulted in it being more noisy. Glyphfriend would just serve everything it knew about. This has generally been regarded as a bad move, and thus library filtering is...

  4. 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...
  5. Trying to demystify PowerShell conditional statements processing performance

    Recently, I was drafting some PowerShell codes and stumbled across which conditional statement should I use for a very simple task and decided to explore abit more on their performance differences.Below is a sample code that I have coded to display the result of the overall performance between some of the conditional statements method and it is purely for educational coding purposes.If anyone is interested to find out, copy the codes below, paste it on PowerShell ISE and run it.
  6. Why starting as a freelance software dev isn't always a good idea? Or is it?

  8. Paginating data with Jquery Datatables and ASP.NET MVC

    Jquery and Bootstrap are certainly some of the most used libraries for web. It abstracts lots of complex implementations of javascript and CSS. For backend developers like me, It’s the best option so far, especially because my usability and design skills suck.However, I still find some web systems and websites which don’t implement a correct pagination getting all the data from database and leaving the work for the Jquery Datatable component. So, what’s the problem in that approach? I could list...
