SPA Conversations

Recently I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to be a guest on the Herding Code podcast and the Channel 9 Web Camps TV video series to discuss SPA. Herding Code Podcast The episode of the Herding Code podcast was hosted by Jon Galloway, K Scott Allen and Scott Koon. We sat down together, along with my friend Ward Bell, and we discussed the state of SPA today and the new Visual Studio templates.

3 Quick JavaScript Tips for .NET Developers

Yesterday at the DevConnections event I had to make an emergency speaking appearance for a speaker who became suddenly ill. Luckily that talk was a topic I know well (JavaScript intro for .NET developers), I was available, and I didn’t freak out   I grabbed the speaker’s deck and used it as a guideline, but I spent the majority of the time in jsfiddle.net writing examples.
