Web security for the small-to-medium sized enterprise

There is no doubt that all of us have heard about the security breaches of numerous Fortune 500 companies.  From credit card information hijacks to content defilement, there is no shortage of news reports detailing the exploits of uber-hackers or hacker groups.  The companies that were aggrieved were so, in part, due to their size.  The acclaim for a hacker penetrating Wal-Mart or Citibank will be far greater than that achieved by taking down Joe's Pool & Spa.  But the havoc wreaked on…See More

Knockout.js custom bindings (or how to make a jQuery autocomplete play nice with knockout.js)

The key to making any jQuery UI component play nice with knockout.js is to use a custom binding.  From the knockout site, this is how you add a custom binding:ko.bindingHandlers.yourBindingName = {    init: function(element, valueAccessor, allBindingsAccessor, viewModel, bindingContext) {        // This will be called when the binding is first applied to an element        // Set up any initial state, event…See More

Knockout.js

The front-end framework of choice for MVC 4 web applications seems to be Knockout.js.  It's fairly robust and easy to add/remove from projects via NuGet and provides an MVVM feel much like Silverlight or WPF.Think of a label control used in WPF.  Using data bindings, you tell the label to display certain text.  If the object representing the text displayed is updated, WPF kindly updates the…See More

Douglas Ching commented on Timothy Little's blog post Knockout.js
"There are so many Javascript libraries and frameworks that have slightly different uses and strengths.  I think I still like Angular.js the most, but I like Knockout's binding and it was easier to pick up on.  KendoUI also looks nice. "

MVC4 and Rails

I have been immersed in Rails development for the last several months and I almost always recommend Rails as the best platform for raising a new website from scratch.  Recently, though, an opportunity came up to work on a .NET MVC 4 project. Great, I thought.  I get to switch back to my favorite language (C#) and still develop in an MVC framework.

Below, I will compare some major feature areas of both frameworks:…

Hey Tim! I enjoyed hanging out with you, Mika, Dan and Lawrence at the Honolulu .NET User's group meeting last night at Oceanit. It was nice to get out of the house and talk shop/story with interesting people. I'm looking forward to the next opportunity to do the same.
