The book’s author has made a good job and has given a lot of good examples of how to use the technology and I cannot do otherwise than recommend [… read more]

I started the project as an experiment as I wanted to try and learn about the newest available versions of various technologies such as Microsoft ASP.NET MVC, jQuery, Geolocation, and Google Charts. I though that it would be good to expose the service to the web and, after purchasing a domain name, the service [… read more]

In List of Microsoft.NET IL disassemblers post, I have already mentioned one of the Telerik’s (free) products, which is the JustDecompile. In this post I would like to review JustCode a tool of which Telerik has just released a new version.

In the previous article Entity Framework Code First – Filtering And Sorting with paging (1) I have simply omitted to include the explanation of the “sorting” mechanism in the solution I’ve proposed. The intention was there but it was left out so I hope that this post will complete the whole story. A short summary of the previous articles For the new comers, this post [… read more]

I was completely unaware of the SQL Server “ghost records” until recently I’ve started using a table in SQL Server database to temporarily store and then delete generated PDF documents as part of a nightly job. Because of a large amount of data being processed (inserted and then deleted) few days later our DBA realized that the database data files started growing in a rhythm [… read more]

Like mathematics, it can be seen as an universal language. Principles When developing software there are some best-practices and principles that should [… read more]

In one of my earlier posts I tried to describe what kind of attributes a leader should have to be successful, and in this post I would like to go a big further and try to define what should make an IT project a success.

Only few years ago I was not such a big fan of Object-Relational mapping tools (ORM), but now I have to admit that when starting a new project I’m always thinking whether it makes sense to use it or not. Compared to “traditional” coding techniques, Object-Relational mapping often reduces the amount of code that needs to be written, but I would add as well that [… read more]

Recently I have participated to a couple of discussions about whether the triggers or stored procedures should be used or not in a “real” project, so I decided to write this post to express my point of view. This said, I warn you, there is no a “right” answer, but most probably a “pro” and “cons” about anything written in this post. An old problem [… read more]
