    Netherlands TechDays 2014 recap
    Published. April 22, 2014

    Last week, we had the pleasure of attending TechDays 2014 in The Hague in the Netherlands. Present from DevExpress were Mark Miller, Mehul Harry, John F Martin, Don Wibier (our new Dutch hire for the Developer Relations team), myself, and, as a late entrant, my wife Donna who selflessly agreed to help out in the booth rather than go explore the city. Talking of the booth, we went for an extremely high tech look with the whole of the backdrop backlit. It was stunning but made for some challenging...

    Simplifying your network with a bridge - Making an FIOs ActionTec MI424-WR a Network Bridge
    Published. April 22, 2014

    I have FIOs Fiber-optic internet at my house and I'm very happy with it - have been for years. I get 35Mbit/s both up and down and it's rock solid. It's not technically all fiber of course, as the fiber goes into an ONT (Optical Network Terminal) in my garage and is changed into a COAX (Coaxial Cable) using MoCA technology, travels 50 feet, then goes into a very old ActionTec MI412-WR wireless router with 4 LAN ports. This common device is multi-function and not only changes the Coax to RJ-45 (Standard...

    Video: A JavaScript Feed Reader in Under 10 Minutes Using Angular JS
    Published. April 22, 2014

    An important component of the decision to use a framework should be the amount of ceremony and ritual involved. You must carefully weigh what it takes to ramp up on the technology and how common tasks are performed. It does no good to adopt a library that forces you to solve a problem with more effort than it would take using your basic tools. One of my favorite examples to showcase technology is a simple feed reader. Several years ago I recorded a video to demonstrate how to build a Silverlight...

    In a recent version of GitHub for Windows, we made a quiet change that had a subtle effect you might have noticed. We changed the default merge strategy for *.csproj and similar files. If you make changes to a .csproj file in a branch and then merge it to another branch, you'll probably run into more merge conflicts now than before. Why? Well, it used to be that we would do a union merge for *.csproj files. The git merge-file documentation describes this option as such: Instead of leaving...

Each rule implements the ILayoutRule interface that exposes a mechanism to check if the rule applies given the control's current...

    Enforce Design Guidelines With Styles And Behaviors

How do you enforce this in the interface in a painless manner? One way, is to define a style for the inteface element...
