  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. 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. 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. So This article lays out step by step how to have node.js read and parse a CSV file stored in it's project, by using the CSV...

    Our team has been using JasmineJs for unit testing our client side JavaScript code. We now have over 3,000 tests!

  8. ASP .NET MVC - SignalR and Android

    I implemented a real time web channel within an ASP .NET MVC web Application through a SignalR Hub proxy, but on most of Android Browsers it not work well. It seems to work on some recent Android Chrome browsers, anyway to have a full compatibility in the Hub initialization i had to put a fallback to the "longPolling" mode in the case of Android devices, some code like this:if (isAndroid) { $.connection.hub.start({ transport: ['longPolling'] }).done(function () { receiver.server.processEvents(); ...
  9. Microsoft Edge Extensions

    One of the most requested features for Microsoft Edge is extensions – and for good reason!Many of us take for granted being able to use browser based plugins such as LastPass’s password manager or extensions for existing applications such as EverNote, OneNote & Skype.
