Not just Open Source, but Something a little more

For the most difficult parts of my career I have pushed for open source among my peers. The number one benfit being standardized code, a benefit for everyone involved. I've even drawn  a fine line for everyone I'm come across with to make it simple. If a user can see your code they can take it, so why not improve it with the help of others. Let others improve upon it or poke holes in it. I've also pointed out to nay sayers that it is a good idea not to make your code specific to an application's needs. Aboid sensitive information that can get tangled inside your logic. Separate it, mask and encrypt it do whatever you got to do. As for frontend code in the modern world, its like writting a book. Your core will be read by someone. If it's good enough people will repeat it. Which is what you should want, Just like books some of the pages are unnecessary or fill up the book with more context which can tie it down. Its on that idea why I adopted other people's code…

Aspnet MVC Cheatsheet

Probably the best place to start with this cheatsheet is with this blog itself. I have tons of articles under my tags "aspnet" and "aspnet-mvc" on this blog. Since aspnet is where I started in my career its probably the most important cheatsheet I should have ready. This article will always be on going...

Javascript Cheatsheet

At times I do still just use pure javascript and nothing else because how small I want the project to be. As always more coming soon...

IIS Cheatsheet

Setting up a website in iis is pretty easy and its where I'm most comfortable doing my professionally work. However with newer frameworks I'm look outside of iis because of the non-window based servers. So this cheatsheet is even better because I'm sure it will be a long time before convince my peers to use linux.

Sql Cheatsheet

After my first job I realized the importance of learning a bit about it all. None should be in the dark when it comes to their website. I might not be a master of relational databases but give me a mongodb or reddis and even a firebase database any day. Still some projects are dependent on mysql and etc so I have enough info to help me move forward. Nothing I had more than a dba or team who locks me out.

Jquery Cheatsheet

Time to time I still use jquery and honestly don't have too many complaints about using jquery over more modern frameworks. Either way keep coming back to this page for reminders or small bugs in my code that I forget to add. I think the best approach for anyone is to create plugins for their needs and just keep expending around that.

Presteps to Making My Own CMS Part II

Before I try to create my own cms I looked recreating  some middlware for blogger. To be clear I didn't create my own database layer simple used Oauth and the blogger api's with a re-skinned UI/UX using Material Angular. I also created some tools for myself awhile I'm using the app and started creating a backup on github process like I talked about a few years back.

Make Promises to Your Work Not Your Employer

I've learned a lot in the past x amount years or whatever I'm not keeping track anymore. For the most part I've learned that I've been doing works. On that part I think I've made some good decisions. For the things I've got wrong I believe its just a matter of how I approached them. Mostly so I believe it was a lack of confident that played into other people's favor. Recently I've no longer allowed this to be an acceptable approach for people to take as my decisions are final. It is just as easy for me to move on rather than work around something in a project because of another developer's difficultly to agree with me.  Regardless how people see me or if they understand my method I only have one bit of wisdom to pass on to next generation. Which is lazy people will lie and will continue to lie to you regardless if you have evidence of better way. For years its confused me on why lazy people sell themselves better and its because its a simpler ap…

Git Cheatsheet

I'm always handling the code wherever I go so maybe its time I shared my notes. I'm really surprised but I should with my experience how many developers don't know git.
msysgit - git: 'credential-cache' is not a git commandHow do I update the password for Git?How do you attach a new pull request to an existing issue on github Squash commits!
I'm always forgetting this and its really simple to do if you remember both commands.

git rebase -i xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
git push --force origin master "where xxxxxxxxxx is the SHA of the commit upto which I've to squash"

Get username

git config user.nameChange Email
git config user.emailCaching Password on Windows.

git config --global credential.helper wincred

More coming soon...

Gimp Cheatsheet

I really should just get a graphic's designer to do all my work but that's probably the words of every developer has said. I don't have the skills or patience but sometimes my needs are very simple and that's really what I work with for my games. Someday I'll pay for one, maybe when I make actually money off my games.

Presteps to Making My Own CMS

A lot of these notes here are just my experiences and design changes to orchard cms for the pre-setup into how I will create my own cms. For my own cms I will not be using any of orchard's code but my experiences will help, also by getting familiar with orchard so I can move forward with my employer on other legacy applications that are dependent on aspnet 4.5. So its a win on both sides.

Major Design Changes:
SafeMode Theme - Removed/MovedOriginally I was completely against having this feature at all however with some thought I think its a matter of default behavior in the core/module features. I did something similar with the Admin Theme menu.cshtml. Instead of changing the tag element view in the core file I simple rewrote the look of the admin menu. Instead of the admin menu adding all the classes to the li tag in the for-loop they are placed in the link tag for fontawesome. The key is no css or javascript just the html. SafeMode can only be used for display purposes at best. T…

A Dependency of Dependency Inject

I have voiced my opinion in the past on dependency injection, and even got myself in some stupid conversations with other developers who are little obsessed with this topic. I was first caught off guard because I questioned for my support for angular which I'll come back to in a minute. My first rule for using any tool or technology is to using it for its greatest strength and really use it or not at all. Which is creating tests around my code and creating versions of those dependencies."we need dependency injection for unit testing/scalability".  Neither of these reasons are wrong and I agree them but if you build blindly follow them without reason you miss the point. I one point used Ninject, and was actually stumped on the explanation given. This was because up to that point dependency injection was something I understood how to use but not its method. However I moved pass that point and started making my opinion clear. Show me the tests! The reason I given was s…

3D Printer - Electrical Notes

Last year I bought a really cheap 3d printer  which was a self-built kit based on the priums 3. Its been years since my beginner course high school on electric. However I didnt have any issues picking things backup and getting to working. The printer I got have zero notes or instructions but for $110 what can you say.

"The AC "L" and "N" probably mean "Live" and "Neutral" respectively. The ground next to it is the Earth ground. The V+ and COM are the DC output terminals, which you could also say are V+ and V-, respectively" BLACK = HOT WHITE = NEUTRAL GREEN = GROUND If you use a computer power cord or other cord based on the international wiring color code: BROWN = HOT BLUE = NEUTRAL GREEN/YELLOW STRIPE = GROUND

I did burn out a fuse on my board but I don't think it was my fault because the fuse was 5amps instead of 10 like the second fuse on my board. Went online and but a similar fuse as the second one and now things ar…

Bootstrap - Static Table Header

With this solution I limiting myself to just css as much as I could without javascript. The draw backs are writing out multiple css selectors and statically writing out the width of column. Also I had to make a max-height for the table, which I was already doing.

I could have easily added ag-grid or ui-grid but I wanted to keep it simple and look at the performances. From a development point of view I would say the time to setup either approach is the same. That is building out this static approach verses just using a library. From the image you can see the max-height is only applied to the tbody.  I'll place the code in my github repo when I'm ready.

AppScript for Blogger Sync

This a project I've given up since I'm creating my own platform but I want to include my notes incase someone wanted to continue my work. Probably going to happen but maybe someone could create it so a person COULD use their google drive to organize their blog. Like create blog posts and have them in a folder separate from everything else so you could use the UI in google drive. Service?

Gcloud Vs. Azure Comparison With Aspnet Core

Since I no longer use both cloud services I thought I would write down out my experiences. This is going to be really quick because its mostly just what I saw with my company site as far as costs and development on each platforms. This note isn't the be all comparison, just a few statements on what I saw and experiences so do your own research and experimenting on each platforms.
Tools (Visual Studio 2015) Without a doubt azure is the better choice but I was really surprised how much there was for glcoud. In fact there is even a plugin for to deploy your app. Gcloud even making docker support easy, the only differences  with visual studio was how you deployed to each platform. Which I like that they were not the same but it did take a long time when I deployed to gcloud. The time was about 10-15 mins sometimes and I'm sure the team is working on it but azure is the winner for this.
