CSS using Bootstrap – Adding Users and Role Authentication to existing WebForms project

More wrestling going on here than with a WWE title fight, eh? The project I’m working on is starting to lean away from Bootstrap. It is a GREAT advantage to use this as a framework – especially in terms of responsive design, and not having to muck around with CSS. Bootpress to roll your own themes. I do love using Page Inspector – a new feature in Visual Studio 2013. Here below I can select different…

Visual Studio and the Entity Framework – Scaffolding Progress

Been a hectic first two weeks on the job! Seven days in, we have agreement on our first set of entities – and have seeded it with data and some sprocs to generate manufacturing work orders and assembly history. Now comes the fun part – the UI! Big challenge here – we are under extreme pressure to deliver in a short time frame a fairly smooth and intuitive UI. Since I work on a manufacturing…

Installing a Windows Server 2012 Virtual Machine Windows 8 Workstation

I have a Windows 8 machine that’s great for browsing. Unfortunately, for anything serious development-related – not so much. (There’s that annoying lack of Local Users and Groups, for example, which crippled my BT2013 install.) First make sure you have Oracle’s VirtualBox set up.

It’s 127 or so slides, which seems a little long by about 100 slides; still the content was more…

Wargames and the Agile Manifesto

In July and August of 2002, the most expensive and far-reaching military exercise in history was launched. Costing nearly $250 billion, it simulated a military leader in the Persian Gulf – one believed to be sponsoring terrorist organizations – that the American forces were assigned to destroy.   The Pentagon knew that no enemy would be so foolish as to clash with American forces head to head (as with Desert Storm), and foresaw the next…

The Arms of Krupp by William Manchester Book Review

Just finished reading “The Arms of Krupp”, by William Manchester. It was kind of a project… but I will say 1) It’s very readable, and even made me laugh at points and 2) Is a fascinating view of the rise and fall of Germany through the lens of its most famous arms merchant. The interesting thing was the story of artillery and the ‘big guns’ that Krupp became famous for. The company only became the…
