Such a vital question in the software development world! “Doneness” is how you measure progress. And so it seems important that we should create some definition of the term.
In this video, I, or rather, RealCoder79, give a short speech at Greenville’s Metro Toastmasters about how Toastmasters can benefit software developers. Toastmasters, if you didn’t know, provides “a supportive and positive learning experience in which members are empowered to develop communication and leadership skills, resulting in greater self-confidence and personal growth.” Being that I […]
Hi, my name is Alex, and I’m a power hungry software developer. Devart’s Code Compare diff tool for Windows is power. By our powers combined, I am a powerful software developer.
I watched at least six hours of training videos covering DSC last night during the election coverage. DSC fascinates me. Originally, I was trying to solve a problem we have at Stark, but at this point, I’m having difficulting not thinking about how/where I can use DSC.
Perhaps that’s an overly dramatic title. More than likely, you don’t even know what I’m talking about. That’s because I have a little secret and today is the day that I kill that secret like a mean old meanie head. On July 8, 2015, I quietly, secretly released a side project to the world… RealCoder79.
The video demonstrates what I had to go through to get Aurelia v0.10.1 working on Windows 10. It’s a pretty bad video, but you might learn something if you suffer through it. Nothing to sugar coat here… The video below wasn’t properly planned and isn’t awesome in my opinion. But I’m releasing it anyway. Surely, it will […]
Is it possible to combine ASP.NET v5 (MVC 6) beta 7 with the Bootstrap 4 alpha and the jQuery 3 alpha? Yes? And I’ve done it. Would I recommend it? No. I basically started from a new Web Application project with the latest ASP.NET bits installed.
Was doing some work today that just happened to involve some very basic, but very power regular expressions, and decided to make a quick, unscripted video to demonstrate a few techniques I use all the time. I hope benefits someone out there who doesn’t realize the immense power that comes with understanding a few simple regular […]
A weird thing started happening on my TFS build server recently. When it came time to run the unit tests, the build would fail with: The specified path, file name, or both are too long. The fully qualified file name must be less than 260 characters, and the directory name must be less than 248 […]
If you’re reading this right now, it’s likely because you just discovered that XSD.exe doesn’t honor import declarations within XSD files. It sure caught me and several others by surprise. The fix, it turns out, is to manually specify each XSD that the primary XSD requires. Something like xsd.exe primary.xsd imported.xsd another.xsd In my case, my […]
