I was lucky enough to get some help from Ryan Niemeyer (KnockoutJS core contributor) recently, and, like I do, I asked if I could record it. I love stuff like this: I need this to work well for the Real World, and I want to do it right.
You have a solid idea of what you want to say - now you just have to say it. The uphill climb begins. This is part 2 of how to improve your screencasting skills.
Any tool can create a mess. Some seem more prone to messes then others - that's what I thought of KnockoutJS until recently when I had a chance to catch up with Steve Sanderson - Knockout's creator. We talked, I tried some different things. I've changed my mind.
Just pushed the latest drop for Tekpub - Speed: ASP.NET MVC Edition with Sam Saffron. I had a lot of fun doing this production and it's made a massive impact on our site.
I try not to work on the weekends and instead spend the time learning something new and, hopefully, different. To that end: Tekpub jas just released Hello NodeJS. What are you doing this weekend?
Tekpub just pushed its latest production: Hello PostgreSQL - and I invite you to take a look at some of the very compelling and interesting features this Open Source system has. No seriously - it's worth a look.
OK maybe the title is a smidge dramatic - but it's the truth. I sweated over each and ever second of Tekpub's latest production and I really believe that it's the best work we've done to date. It's basically a This Developer's Life, in video.
This was a multi-day bug with 10 deployments behind it. I was tired, frustrated and hateful of the incessant problems Internet Explorer brings to the world. I was about to give up. To hack in Yet Another IE Workaround, when I noticed something strange in the response headers...
Thought I would take a minute or two and update Tekpubbers out there on what's happening in the near future....
One of my favorite movies of all time is Pulp Fiction. There are so many lines... so many scenes that it's hard to describe one as your favorite - but one that comes to mind often is Harvey Keitel as "The Wolf". When Ving Rhames says "I'm sending in the Wolf", you knew something good was about to happen.
We just pushed the latest build of Tekpub - and it's a pretty massive rewrite. I bounced between frameworks during this rewrite, eventually settling with Rails 3. A few people have asked why. Here's why.
Steven Sanderson and I just wrapped up our last episode for Tekpub's ASP.NET MVC 2 series. I don't particularly like to write "pimp posts" - but I'm making an exception in this case as we've decided to Open Source the code and I wanted to talk about what's in it.
