Some good reminders for new programmers and old ones – tips from a pro-programmer

It is good to re-learn some basics. An advanced programming friend was so impressed by the 1st chapter of a book he went on and on about it. He is boning up on his python and I took a pic of the url. It is Learn Python the Hard Way book. The link isn’t working – not sure why – let me know if it is not working if you click on it.

Here is the missing chapter “Publish this Angular .NET MVC App” from the book I read

Learning AngularJS for .NET Developers

Learning AngularJS for .NET Developers

So – again Learning AngularJS is an AWESOME BOOK (Kindle version has clickable links). This was my 2nd book – as I read another AngularJS book that was SUPER LONG and then I had downloaded another (to one to the right) which was quite cheap – and left it. Apparently this “cheap book” was the ticket to SUPER SUCCESS. Thanks for writing the book in his “here do this” and “this is why we did that” style. And his backup websites and fiddler examples – SOOO COOL to learn that way.

BUT – it worked when you went to “play” it in Visual Studio 2013, but when I went to publish it, as usual the wheels fell off the bus. Here is the last chapter of that book “Publishing this whole mess onto a real website”. Can all of the readers comment this so we can all make it better? I will contact the author and ask if he can plagiarize all this material (and I hope all your comments) this into his book as a new chapter. Maybe he will re-write it for Angular 2.0!?  Continue reading

Lets start developing AngularJS apps in Visual Studio

Learning AngularJS for .NET Developers

Learning AngularJS for .NET Developers

So I had no intention to use Angular anywhere else at this time, but 2 new web app requests tipped my hand into “lets do this and do it Angular .net” since the underlying tech is in fact a windows program. Therefore, I went back to the book store and am reading Learning AngularJS for .NET Developers. Every sentance is important in this book so this is not a skimmer but he gets right to development, re-development etc. etc. until he has what I consider now to be the starting point of all my projects. i will use this model as my Angular Seed (a starting point for Angular Apps). I think I will need the tips below EVERY TIME I develop an app so I will write my steps down for you. I developed all the items I had with VS 2013 Express and am to the point where I think I will be buying VS 2013 Pro as the tools a few books suggest all require pro or above. It is $500CDN.

Technologies I am going to use for a new project and why

After much consultation with other web designers and investigating what technologies to use – I have come up with a final list. I will explain why I chose what I did as I go along.

First, the project is a data aggregation tool used to marry 2 worlds of how much time we have taken versus a budget of how much time is expected to be spent. It is much more complicated than my simple explanation (it is for an engineering company) but that is the gist of it. People will be logging in on a regular basis to update key numbers and over time, Continue reading
