Introducing ASP.NET Core 1.0

ASP.NET 5 is dead – Introducing ASP.NET Core 1.0 and .NET Core 1.0

No More System.Web

Last Week I was in a WebDev Camp by Microsoft, which was about the all new ASP. No ASP.NET 5 will launch this Year, Its now renamed to ASP.NET Core 1.0 which is open source. Yes you heard me right Open Source. So that’s a good news for Web Developers like me who loves Open Source Technologies, as Microsoft has confirmed that the new .NET core have support for NPM, BOWER, GULP, GRUNT and Nuget package managers.

So Microsoft is changing the name and picking a better version number 1.0

ASP.NET Core 1.0 is not a continuation of ASP.NET 4.6. It is a whole new framework, a side-by-side project which happily lives alongside everything else we know. It is an actual re-write of the current ASP.NET 4.6 framework, but much smaller and a lot more modular. Continue reading

VooDoo Programming

What is VooDoo Programming ?

Voodoo programming refers to the practice of coding according to superstition, guesses, or anything other than logic. Voodoo programming is a rather broad term for situations where a programmer uses a piece of code without truly understanding how it works.

This programming technique may also be called wizardry, sorcery or black magic, and its practitioners may be referred to as witch doctors.

Bubble Memory

What is Bubble Memory ?

Bubble memory is a type of non-volatile memory that makes use of a thin layer of magnetic material that holds small magnetized areas known as bubbles or domains, which are able to store one bit of data each. The magnetic material is arranged into parallel tracks where the bubbles can move along through the action of an external magnetic field. Bubble memory was a promising technology in the 1980s, offering similar density to hard disk drives and similar performance to core memory, but major advancements in both hard disk and semiconductor memory chips pushed bubble memory into the shadows.

Bubble memory is also known as magnetic bubble memory.

System Programming

What is System Programming

System programming involves designing and writing computer programs that allow the computer hardware to interface with the programmer and the user, leading to the effective execution of application software on the computer system. Typical system programs include the operating system and firmware, programming tools such as compilers, assemblers, I/O routines, interpreters, scheduler, loaders and linkers as well as the runtime libraries of the computer programming languages.

System programming is an essential and important foundation in any computer’s application development, and always evolving to accommodate changes in the computer hardware. This kind of programming requires some level of hardware knowledge and is machine dependent; the system programmer must therefore know the intended hardware on which the software is required to operate.

Additionally, the programmer may make some assumptions on the hardware and other system components. The software is usually written in a low-level programming language which is able to operate efficiently in a resource-constrained environment, and with little runtime overhead using a small library, or none at all. The low-level language enables direct control over memory access and allows the program to be written directly in an assembly language. The majority of programs are written using assembly languages such as C, C++ and C#.

Microblog

What does Microblog mean?

A microblog is a type of blog in which users can post small pieces of digital content like pictures, video or audio on the Internet. These posts, called microposts, are immediately available to a small community or public. It differs from a blog due to its smaller content. Micoblogging is highly popular among users due to its portability and immediacy.

Microblogs are incorporated in different websites. Most microblog platforms require users to log in, although some allow social login. In a microblog, the posts are brief and are often restricted by number of characters. Most often, the entries in a microblog are one or two sentences, image or video links or a link to an article. The posts can be received or sent using different computing devices, such as smartphones. One of the most popular microblogging sites on the Internet is Twitter.

Schematic Capture

What does Schematic Capture mean?

Schematic capture is the process of creating a schematic diagram for an electronic circuit using various tools designed for the job. This can be done from as simple as using a pen and paper to using schematic capture software, including highly expensive electronic design automation suites or packages that can do everything from schematic capture, layout and simulation.

Schematic capture is part of circuit analysis and design; it is the process of “taking” the schematic design from an engineer’s head and entering it into a computer or putting it into a piece of paper. In simpler terms, it means that an engineer is designing a circuit that will serve a specific purpose by making use of industry standards and conventions to put the design into a visual state, either via hand drawing or by entering it into a software made for the purpose. It can be seen in the same manner as a digital artist might draw using a tool like Photoshop or a writer using a word processor.

The result of schematic capture is a schematic design or layout that can be used for the following purposes:

Subtyping

What does Subtyping mean?

Subtyping is a notion in programming language theory where a subtype, which is a data type, is related to a supertype based on the notion of substitutability, where program elements such as functions and subroutines that are written for the supertype will still operate if given the subtype instead. Subtypes are an essential concept in object-oriented programming and are substitutable to supertypes and sometimes even have more stringent specifications than the supertype.

Subtyping is a method for substitution and code reuse used in object-oriented programming languages to prevent unnecessary copying of largely similar code and promote code readability and prevent bugs. A subtype is basically a substitute for a supertype that can fulfill all of the latter’s specifications, and then some. So if B is a subtype of A, then B can always be used to substitute for an A and any property that is guaranteed by A must also be guaranteed by B.

Internet of Things

What is Internet of Things ?

The “Internet of things” (IoT) is becoming an increasingly growing topic of conversation both in the workplace and outside of it. So what is Internet of Things. It is also known as Internet of Everything. The future of the ever growing Internet Technology that features an IP Address for every physical object to enable connectivity between these objects and other Internet-enabled devices and system.

The Internet of Things extends internet connectivity beyond traditional devices like desktop and laptop computers, smartphones and tablets to a diverse range of devices and everyday things that utilize embedded technology to communicate and interact with the external environment, all via the Internet.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a computing concept that describes a future where everyday physical objects will be connected to the Internet and be able to identify themselves to other devices. The term is closely identified with RFID as the method of communication, although it also may include other sensor technologies, wireless technologies or QR codes.

Data Smog

What does Data Smog mean?

Data smog refers to an overwhelming amount of data and information – often obtained through an Internet search – whose volume serves more to confuse the user than illuminate a topic. Data smog is a term coined from a book written by the journalist David Shenk, which deals with the influence of the information technology revolution and how the vast amount of information available online make it increasingly difficult to separate facts from fiction.

The amount of data available on nearly any topic today is overwhelming, and while it can be advantageous, this constant bombardment can also have side effects that are not unlike air pollution in that they are gradual, insidious and largely invisible. These include impaired performance and increased stress. Experts have provided tips on how to avoid the effects of data smog. These include:

  • Spend some time away from communication devices, the Internet and the television
  • Try going on “data fasts”
  • Browse through newspapers and magazines and cut out the articles that you want to read and learn about
  • Make use of filtering for unwanted emails
  • Do not send or forward urban legends, chain letters or any useless information to others
  • Write concisely and briefly
  • Systematize your Web bookmarks or folders

Docker

What does Docker mean?

Docker is an open platform that helps with the universal distribution of applications. It has become a standard for certain types of container virtualization systems and has been adopted by various companies as a software container strategy.

IT experts describe Docker as a tool that helps to ship code to servers in efficient ways. Docker deals with complex software stacks and distributed hardware infrastructure, helping IT people to avoid difficulties in bridging development, Q&A and production, as well as to avoid what Docker founder Solomon Hykes calls the “matrix from hell” – a situation where developers have to look closely at every type of distribution over every type of hardware and software scenario. The philosophy behind Docker is to help provide universal execution, using inherent Linux kernel properties that offer support for easier application handling. For example, instead of utilizing methods that would allow for library interdependency or other difficulties, Docker provides a smooth separation or “sandboxing,” where a given library is installed multiple times in different containers so that each individual library instance is not interdependent with any other.
