  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...

It can be implemented in hardware or software. The traffic is sent to a dedicated service that decides where to send the traffic, using an algorithm like round-robin, to one of the...
  7. Don't Fear Cloud Lock-In, Just Architect Differently

    I've worked with many different clients who are either on the verge of moving to the cloud, or who are in the cloud and are terrified that they will be "locked in" to a particular provider. A lot of these same clients have spent months or years just coming to the core decision to move to the cloud, let alone trying to implement solutions there. These fears usually rise up once an SDK is mentioned, and most often its always developers voicing these concerns. My experience has taught me these fears...

  9. I know Kung-Fu

    Almost everyone who has seen the Matrix movie remembers that scene. Neo, played by Keanu Reeves, has just spent the day learning martial arts, by some brain writing sci-fi process. His mentor comes in at the end of one of these "lessons", Neo opens his eyes and says "I know Kung-Fu".Of course, learning is not that easy in real life, it takes a certain amount of time, long hours of work and practice. And it probably never ends. Take my current favorite subject, the cloud. To be precise I should say...
  10. 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...
