  1. 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...
  2. 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...
  3. 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...
  4. 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...

  6. MS SQL: Google Maps API

    This article will show how to calculate the distance beween two addresses using Google Maps API. Blog.I was looking to an easy way to calculate the distance between two addresses using SQL and Google Maps Distance Matrix API and I found this post from stackoverflow very useful.Here is how I use the Google Maps Distance Matrix API:CREATE PROCEDURE [dbo].[CalculateDistance] ( @ToAddress NVARCHAR(100) = '', @FromAddress NVARCHAR(100) = '', @DistanceistanceInKm FLOAT OUTPUT ) ASBEGINDECLARE @Object...
  7. Http Patterns: Progress

    A progress resource is usually a temporary resource that is created automatically by the server to provide status on some long running process that has been initiated by a client. It is used to provide feedback to an end user and point to the results of an operation once it has completed.HTTP is a client/server request and response protocol. It does not provide for server initiated communications. If a client makes a request to a server that is likely to take a long time, e.g. 5 seconds or longer,...
  8. HTTP Patterns : Factory

    A factory resource is one that is used to create other resources.Sometimes it is difficult to create a complete resource representation on the client without some involvement from the server. It may be that the server is responsible for creating a unique identifier for the new resource, so a PUT request is not possible. Or other attributes of the resource may be dependent on existing server state. For example, creating a order resource where the order quantity may be adjusted based on in-stock quantity.
  9. HTTP Patterns : Bouncer

    A resource designed to accept a request body containing complex query parameters and redirect to a new location to enable the results of complex and expensive queries to be cached.There are practical limitations to the length of a URL on the Web. In order to send complex queries it is sometimes necessary to use a POST method and use the request body to describe the query parameters. However, a POST method cannot return a cached response. If the complex queries take a non-trivial amount of time...
  10. HTTP Patterns : Discovery

    This type of resource is used to provide a client with the information it needs to be able to access other resources. This removes the need for a client to hardcode resource URLs which include information such as the protocol scheme, host, path and query string.The primary problem addressed by a discovery resource is allowing API developers to change various elements of their API without having to notify client developers of the change and potentially force those customers to redeploy their application.
