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. 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.

  4. Custom user roles and role-based authorization in ASP.NET core

    I've recently been trying to contribute to the developer community, in more ways than I previously have.

    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.

  7. Scheduled SharePoint workflows

    I have created a custom list called Reclamations with a few new columns:The purpose is to send an email to the responsible people 2 days before the expiration date. There are quite a few solutions to accomplish this task. Some of them involve another list with calculated column, custom timer job, SQL Server Agent, Windows Task Scheduler, PowerShell script …But I am a fan of simple solutions.
