Deploying a MongoDB powered Node.js app on Windows Azure: my slides

A few days ago I attended the second event of the newly born Belgian Node.js User Group. The event was about deploying and testing node.js applications and has been hosted in Microsoft Belgium offices near Brussels, thanks to Tom Crombez (aka @artymoony) and Windows Azure. There were 3 presentations: Mine, about deploying a MongoDB powered Node.js app on Windows Azure: a walkthrough of the steps needed to deploy the app. Then another talk on how to build your own “cloud-like” environment on Linux, using systemd. Talk by Ruben Vermeersch. ...

7 books for a .NET Summer reading list (2011 version)

In the previous years “n books for a .NET Summer reading list” used to be the title of the book list post. Now, in the last of my 4 posts with books suggestions I am back to the original title. In my introductory post I said I would have listed only a few web development on .NET books. In fact there are only 2. Web Development on .NET Professional ASP.NET MVC 3 While Professional ASP.NET MVC v2 was mainly an update of the original professional MVC1 book, the third remake, due to the nature of the new...

Slides and code for my SOLID presentation at the .NET Bern User Group

Last Thursday I held a presentation about SOLID principles at the .NET User Group Bern. It was a real pleasure for me to go to Switzerland and speak to a very interested audience. My talk was actually made of two parts: An introduction to SOLID principles A deep dive into Dependency Injection and IoC containers In the IoC part I mainly showed samples using my favorite IoC, Ninject. But I also did one sample using Unity and one with Funq, the new super-fast IoC container developed by Daniel...

Speaking in Bern about SOLID

While I was organizing the NHDay, this summer I got in contact with Kay Herzam, one of the founder of the Bern .NET User Group: we started talking and we decided to do something together: the collaboration started with Kay announcing the NHDay to his fellow user group members, and this turned out pretty well, since 5 people from Switzerland registered and came to the NHDay after Kay announced it. We decided to go on with the collaboration: so on December 9th, 2010 I will be speaking in Bern, at the 5th annual user group meeting, about SOLID principles....

All NHibernate Day materials and videos are online

Almost one month passed since the NHDay in Bologna and but we didn’t forget about the promise we made about streaming and having the videos online for people that couldn’t attend. And now, after all the processing required to get the vidoes out of the cameras, processing and uploading them fighting with the “digital divide” that affects some areas of Italy, all the vidoes, presentations and samples (when available) are online. Keynote by Simone Chiaretta: video and slide What’s new in NH3 by Ayende: video and slide From relational...

12 ASP.NET MVC Best Practices

Last week I held two presentations about ASP.NET MVC for the new-born DotNetRomaCeStà user group in Rome. And one of them was about what I consider to be ASP.NET MVC Best Practices. The presentation was in Italian so I decided to translate my slide in English so that everybody can read them. Controller’s best practices 1 – Delete the AccountController You will never use it and it’s a super-bad practice to keep demo code in your applications. 2 – Isolate Controllers from the outside World Dependencies on the HttpContext, on data access classes, configuration, logging,...

Video explanation of jQuery

Lately I’m trying to get deeper into jQuery and during one of mine information hunting sessions I found this awesome video presentation of jQuery, by Ben Nadel. It’s a 1h45min screencast that covers all the aspects of jQuery, from the simplest UI Effects to the more complicate Ajax requests, the powerful data() method till plugin authoring. I think it’s a very interesting presentation to watch even if you are experienced jQuery user as it explains the concepts behind it in a very clear way. In particular, I really loved how he explained closures Or you can just...
