We blogged about HTML5 throughout this year with big enthusiasm, but also from time to time with a dose of skepticism  (see, see). Well, it’s December now and what have you learned about it?  Do we have any other opportunity to learn? Did something change ? Or should we just conclude it sucks and didn’t […]

Let the Power of Shell be with you! A Powershell review

Today we live in the era of graphical user interfaces. Click here, click there – everything is done by users’ clicks. If you are a developer you are probably familiar with the drag&drop programming style – drag a control from a box, drop on the form and double click to create a handler. However, it […]

Windows 8 is on its way

It’s been about two weeks since the Windows 8 build appeared. During the first week about one million users had a chance to run the new build of Windows 8. Have you read our developer preview and our first Windows 8 impressions? Then you probably remember that we wrote about the new metro User Interface, Internet […]

Will HTML5 fulfill the old Java(script) write once run anywhere promise?

Do you remember the slogan Java Everywhere – write once, run anywhere – WORA, sometimes WORE or by some, and here I mean .NET developers (like me), called Just-W*ORE. This slogan saying you can write Java code on any machine, compile it and run on any device, was very popular a couple of years ago. […]

How to NOT store user credentials in a database

Sometimes you need to create an application with your own role and user management module. In most cases you are creating it in a simple and understandable way.
