    A long while back it seemed like the new cool app thing to do was to represent people/avatars in circles instead of the squares (or squares with rounded corners).  I made a snarky comment about this myself almost exactly 2 years ago when I noticed that some apps I was using at the time switched to this: Seeing a trend that the new avatar shape in apps is a circle and no longer square — Tim Heuer (@timheuer) March 23, 2013 Now since this seems to be a popular trend and people are doing it I’ve thought XAML folks have figured it out.  However I’ve seen enough questions and some people…

    The best way to experiment with a new component framework is to create components, and a simple Map component is often one of the first candidates that come to mind.

    6 Apr 2015 | 10:30 am
    We have entered a new era of computing where everyone and everything is connected. But this won’t automatically mean more people using your apps and doing business with you on more devices. In fact, it will mean the opposite if you don’t start thinking about your app in a different way: as the primary channel of customer engagement for your business, as opposed to a data entry terminal forcing your customers into entering and interacting with siloed data with no intelligence or connection.

  • Real Time Trader Desktop with React, Node.js, and Socket.io

    Christophe Coenraets
    24 Mar 2015 | 11:28 am
    The virtual DOM is one of the key characteristics of React. When you render a component, React creates a lightweight description of the UI, diffs it with the previous version, and generates a minimal set of changes to apply to the DOM. That diffing algorithm is very fast, making React particularly well suited for apps with a lot of UI changes. That prompted me to revisit a type of application I’ve built in the past with different languages and frameworks: a trader desktop showing real time market data updates. This new version uses React for the client-side and Socket.io to push…

    Wow, what a week.  I have to say even as employees of Microsoft, we get surprised when we go to our conferences and see some of the bigger announcements.  There are things that are being worked on that are new or just in different divisions that we’re not focused on.  This past week at the Build 2015 conference was an example of that for me.  Lots of good stuff for developers from client to server!

  • I lost 55lbs using these two amazing simple steps–you can too!

    15 Aug 2014 | 3:49 pm
    TL;DR – I got off my butt, started eating better and lost 40lbs in ~100 days.  You can too. UPDATE: As of NOV-2014 I’m down 55lbs since this timeframe.  Feel amazing, found new hobbies that are active and loving life again. This year started very depressing personally as each look in the mirror showed another chin growing under the previous.  I weighed the most I’ve ever weighed in my life and it just kept getting away from me.  My move to Redmond brought back a different office life for me from my previous role at Microsoft and I became much more sedentary than before.  Now, this…

    Before Windows Live Writer was even publically released, I was glad to have been an early beta user/tester of the product.  The team thought early about an extensible model and it has been my content authoring tool ever since.  It has allowed me to use *my* preferred content workflow with my cloud providers/formatters/tracking and other such plug-ins due to this extensibility. One of the first plugins available was one of mine I called Flickr4Writer.  It was pretty popular (as most ‘firsts’ are) and I got a lot of good feedback that changed the functionality and user interface.  Is it…

  • Auto-Deploy GitHub Repos to Heroku

    James Ward
    1 May 2015 | 9:47 am
    My favorite new feature on Heroku is the GitHub Integration which enables auto-deployment of GitHub repos. Whenever a change is made on GitHub the app can be automatically redeployed on Heroku. You can even tell Heroku to wait until the CI tests pass before doing the deployment. I now use this on almost all of my Heroku apps because it allows me to move faster and do less thinking (which I’m fond of). For apps like jamesward.com I just enable deployment straight to production. But for apps that need a less risky setup I have a full Continuous Delivery pipeline that looks like this: Push…
  • Reactive Postgres with Play Framework & ScalikeJDBC

    James Ward
    7 Apr 2015 | 12:03 pm
    Lately I’ve built a few apps that have relational data. Instead of trying to shoehorn that data into a NoSQL model I decided to use the awesome Heroku Postgres service but I didn’t want to lose out on the Reactiveness that most of the NoSQL data stores support. I discovered ScalikeJDBC-Async which uses postgresql-async, a Reactive (non-blocking), JDBC-ish, Postgres driver. With those libraries I was able to keep my data relational and my app Reactive all the way down. Lets walk through how to do it in a Play Framework app. (TL;DR: Jump to the the full source.)

  • Scaling the WebJars Project with On-Demand Bower Packages

    James Ward
    23 Mar 2015 | 9:00 am
    WebJars has been my hobby project for almost 3 years and thanks to tons of help from the community the project now has almost 900 JavaScript libraries in Maven Central. In February 2015 there were over 500,000 downloads of WebJars! Up until now all of the WebJars have been manually created, deployed, and maintained. Today I’m happy to launch Bower WebJars, an on-demand service that allows users to deploy new WebJars from Bower packages. If a WebJar doesn’t exist for the library you need, but it does exist in Bower, then select the Bower package & version and deploy it! Under…
  • Salesforce Canvas Quick Start for Java Developers

    James Ward
    10 Mar 2015 | 2:16 pm
    Salesforce provides a variety of different ways to integrate external apps into the Salesforce UI. Canvas is an iframe-based approach for loading externally hosted UIs into pages on Salesforce. The nice thing about Canvas versus a plain iframe is that Canvas has a JavaScript bridge which enables secure communication between the external iframe and Salesforce. This communication happens in the context of the Salesforce user and doesn’t require the typical OAuth handshake. Because Canvas apps live outside of Salesforce they can be built with any language and run anywhere, including…

    Dylan Schiemann
    16 Apr 2015 | 1:42 pm
    “When will Dojo 2 be released?” That’s pretty much the number one question we’ve been asked about Dojo since Dojo 1.0 was released in 2007. Over the past seven plus years, we have made numerous updates and improvements, while preserving a high level of stability for our users. What’s in a number? Our shift to AMD in Dojo 1.7 was a massive change that could have been called Dojo 2.0, but because we kept backwards compatibility to help developers transition over to AMD syntax, it felt right to call it 1.7. We continued building on that groundwork releasing 1.8, 1.9…

The reason I say it’s designed for Xamarin.Forms is because it plays on Xamarin.Forms strengths and fills in ONLY the missing parts. It has a requirement for Xamarin.Forms and therefore is smart and can do thing such as wiring up the BindingContext and Page events.

There was speculation that Microsoft was giving up on the look it originally called Metro and hoping to appeal to iOS and Android users with a more familiar interface. But at the recent Build conference the message was more that Windows 10 design is a work in progress, and that hamburger…
