ThreadAbortException my experiments with //Web
Have been wanting to revive this blog for a long time but haven’t properly invested the time. So thought of kicking this off with a control I worked on recently. One of the requirements for a Windows 8 App was to create a Mood Wheel or rather a Spinner Wheel Control. Something like below. Now, this is not something that ships out of the box in the XAML ......

For those who attended my session at TechEd India 2013, one of the topics I presented was, on Azure Mobile Services. I also presented on new enhancements to ASP.NET with the Visual Studio 2012 Fall Update. As a mixture of both the sessions, I mentioned about building a Web API feed for Tech Ed Data that could be consumed through Azure Mobile Services. ......

I had earlier posted the Blog Reader Sample with Search Implementation. The Blog Reader is an excellent place to start to build XAML Windows 8 Apps.

While by default there are no chart controls, there are a lot of third party controls such as Telerik, Component One, providing charting for Windows 8. However, there is also the WINRTXamlToolkit, available in CodePlex. It provides a bunch of ......

I was playing around with ASP.NET SignalR and while trying to use Hubs, stumbled upon this error.

There is a good chance you might have stumbled upon the new Windows Azure Release that we made on June 6th. Scott Guthrie’s Post quite summarizes the overall new features. One of my favorite features is the Windows Azure Websites and the ability to do publish files to Azure using your FTP Client. Windows Azure Websites offers low cost (free upto 10 ......

Today we were rebuilding an old project which used MVC 2. There were a bunch of build errors, which I quickly figured was because of the reference to Microsoft.Web.MVC assembly which was a part of the Futures Preview for MVC 2 before MVC 3 came. I removed the reference and secondly, I installed MVC 3 on the machine. After that I removed all references ......

One of the key trends becoming more and more popular is the Single Page Application Framework and building applications that behave as native applications running on the machine. SPA’s have been tried and tested for a while now and with libraries like Knockout.js, Backbone.js becoming more and more capable, it becomes feasible to create SPA’s. What ......

This post is in continuation with my earlier post, so you may want to read that first before continuing. Once I removed all the TasksController files and the TodoItem, I chose the Models folder, right click and “Add New Item” and searched for “ADO.NET Entity Model” and added it to the folder. It allowed me to connect to the Northwind database through ......

Single Page Application Frameworks are gaining popularity in the ever evolving web community with lot of libraries such as JavaScriptMVC, Backbonejs and many other libraries.

I have been working on Windows Azure Service Bus for the recently concluded Azure Camps Yes, it is no longer referred as “Windows Azure AppFabric Service Bus”.
