News and stories from a dev's life
If anyone has had issues with emails addressed to the
liquidelectron.com domain, I've just put into place a change to my host's DNS records to get them aligned with my Exchange Online service. It was something I was supposed to do by Jan 1 which had clearly slipped my mind.
Thanks Angela Dugan for the heads-up!
Following up on an exchange Chris Powers and I had earlier today at That Conference, I threw together a quick and dirty project template for VS 2012 (RC) to create a new node.js website project. The template will create a new website folder and sln with the express module installed and a simple “hello world” response mapped to the “/”.
As promised, here are the slides and demo code from my talk last night at the Chicago ALM UG.

Special thanks to folks at MS Chicago, for being gracious hosts, Angela Dugan for giving me the opportunity to present, and to all of the attendees for rolling so well with the food pyramid analogy!
I've been very preoccupied the last few weeks working on a few things these past few weeks. There's been so many different disparate things going on it's sometimes hard to keep track of everything! Here's a list of what I've been working on:
This is part 2 of ?? in a series that goes behind the scenes of the PostcardApp.
The postcardsfromskyrim.net implementation of the postcardApp has been invaluable in getting down to the nuts and bolts of the new ASP.NET MVC 4 Beta and WebAPI. While in the midst of adding authentication and authorization to the app, I had an interesting discovery regarding Attribute Filters and how the WebAPI fits into MVC 4. I’ll go over the basic issue and provide a link to a gist example of how to create a custom authorization attribute to transparently authenticate users in both scenarios presented.
I've just put up a page with a technical listing and overview of the PostcardApp running at postcardsfromskyrim.net. I'll try to keep that page updated as I get more content up and running, so keep an eye on that page to see all the components at play in the system.
UPDATE: A basic help page is available here
I’m pleased to announce the release yesterday of my latest project – Postcardsfromskyrim.net! This website is a project that I gave myself to both to sharpen my skills through practice, learn new techniques and technologies, and to serve as a guide to some new and exciting technologies and the possibilities they open up. I plan on doing in-depth dives on the various aspects of the application in subsequent posts, so stay tuned.
