Speaking Wednesday, February 27 About SPA apps and WebAPI in Mountain View Microsoft Office

  ASP.NET’s WebAPI and SPA’s (single page apps) are all the rage! In our brave new world, many web apps are now Single Page Applications written in JavaScript.

Sencha’s Architect’s Perfect Storm, Easy To Use and Incorporates Hand Written Code Gracefully

Introduction Wednesday night this week, our local meetup (happening at Sencha’s headquarters in Redwood City) is featuring the Sencha Architect engineers who are here from all over the world for a get together.  Personally, I’ve been using Sencha Architect (SA) for well over a year now and am hugely impressed.  Yesterday, for the first time I felt a need to go beyond what SA offered and for the first time decided to “override” an ExtJS object (store in this case) with my own code.  It’s now a trick I own!  Explanation of why we did it, what we did, and what to look out for if you do it yourself in the future.   Why We Did It As many of you know, in addition to being the primary organizer of Silicon Valley Code … Continue Reading

Tuesday (Tomorrow) Night, At The Microsoft Office in SF, I’m talking SYNC SYNC SYNC

It seems like every project I’m involved in at some point turns into a sync project.  Tomorrow night, I’ll talk about the different efforts Microsoft has put forth in this area, I’ll talk specifically about Azure Sync and of course many of my efforts.  Specifically, I’ll give lots of opinions on how to sync between mobile clients and back end services (my favorite topic at the moment).  We’ll talk about what Azure Mobile Services is, and we’ll talk about what I’m guessing it will be. Come down and join the talk!  There will be many interactive parts as always.   http://www.bayazure.org/events/97585082/   … Continue Reading
