  1. Creating HSTS and Pre-load with Cloudflare

    Most people are familiar with HTTPS and the concept of secure websites. Securing websites become more and more common, which is a really good thing. Not only do we know that the data sent and received from the website is secure, but we also get a sense of knowing we will be alright. We expect that we get confidentiality, authenticity and integrity from modern websites. After all, we see sites every day with this:This is becoming more and more common, and according to Scott Helme almost 31% of the...
  2. Using Geo-Location in Your Web App

    The use of GPS data has become second nature for most everyday tasks. The most common scenario of finding your way from A to B using GPS is obvious, but there are a lot of other uses as well. When you ask to find the nearest store on a company website, GPS is used. When you log into Facebook in a foreign country and you subsequently get ads for all of the Swedish natural foods you can eat, GPS is used. When you ask Google to remember where you parked your car, GPS is used. And many more ways. 
  3. Getting Started with Windows Template Studio

    Developers are always looking for shortcuts to make their programming more efficient and let them focus on the fun bits. Deep down inside developers are lazy people that don't want to do boring work. Repetitive work. About a year ago I finished a Pluralsight course on building your first Universal Windows App, which aimed to give developers a great shortcut for building apps for Windows 10. It took me three goes to finish the course (Microsoft kept moving the goal posts), but I was happy with the...
  4. 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...
  5. Contributing to .NET for Dummies

    Over the past few months in the little spare time that I have, I’ve managed to submit a handful of pull requests to various .NET-related repositories (e.g. coreclr, corefx, docs, etc.) and incredibly, they were accepted.Now, for some, this may not seem like a big deal. But it felt like a pretty big one to me so I thought I would take some time to elaborate on the process itself, share my experience, and hopefully dispel a few myths or misconceptions that you might have that may be holding you back...
  6. Continuous Deployment from GitHub to Azure

    Continuous Deployment from GitHub, the web based Git source repository service to Azure, the cloud offering from Microsoft, resolves many bottlenecks related to manual application deployment. Most of the open source developers use GitHub as a public or private repository to track code changes and as a collaboration tool. Integrating or deploying applications directly from GitHub to Azure reduce the time taken for manual deployment of applications. Let us quickly see how we can deploy a small...

  8. Configure RoundCube on Debian 8 (Jessie) - Perfect Server Debian 8 (Apache, BIND, Dovecot, ISPConfig 3)

    Debian 8 (Jessie) doesn't contain RoundCube in it's repositories. Why, I don't know :) . In ISPConfig3, Perfect Server, Debian 8, you get SquirrelMail, but I don't like how it looks. With some trouble setting it up, I managed to configure RoundCube on Debian 8 and make it wokring with ISPConfig3. Used many sources to make it work and decided to create this manual that you’re reading.I presume that you have configured your server with Perfect Server Debian 8 (Apache, BIND, Dovecot, ISPConfig 3) configuraton...
