  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  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...
