It used to be that to develop with Microsoft technologies developers would have to pay up for development tools if they wanted the best experience. These days with all the options developers have, getting someone to pay for tools can be difficult.
Recently I wiped of one of my development machines and realized this is no longer the case while installing various tools.
It's well known that Microsoft has been moving towards open sourcing many of their projects like…
Sooner or later, everyone who is in the tech field for the long run bumps up against the U.S. immigration system. The tech talent pool is global, our engineering schools have plenty of international grads looking to be placed into U.S. jobs, and smart international investors are looking for U.S. tech entrepreneurs to back.

Justin, of course, continues to do the heavy lifting.
Lately I’ve been reviewing issues of long distance worker health and safety, and of information security with respect to access to corporate information from the…Continue

I like to hone my problem-solving skills by going over some programming contest questions and I also like to use programming contest problems in interviews because it allows me to gauge whether the candidate is a just a coder or a problem solver. That's not to say that if you can't come up with a correct solution, you aren't a problem solver -- if I'm the interviewer, I'm more interested in how you approach the problem and whether you can break up and present the problem in an abstract…Continue
