Implementing Strategy Pattern and Callbacks in TypeScript

The TypeScript datatyping support not only applies to simple variables, it also supports you when doing clever things with functions. Specifically, TypeScript ensures you create reliable code when implementing callback functions.

Using Predicates in Akka.NET Receive Actors

Create precise logic dictating which messages an actor will handle and how they will react to them.

Modelling Actor Behaviors in Akka.NET

Simplify conditional actor code and improve readability.

Hosting JavaScript in a Windows 10 App

An introduction to the Chakra JavaScript engine and how it can be used within a Windows 10 app to execute JavaScript.

Simplifying Applications with Eventual Consistency

Stop trying to make everything work all at once. Instead, use Domain Events to make applications simpler, more scalable and easier to maintain -- and to defer updates until you can't avoid making them.

Simplifying Applications by Implementing Eventual Consistency with Domain Events

Implementing Domain Events can dramatically simplify your application while also making it more scalable. Here are some of the implementation options available to you in the .NET environment.

Step Up To Recurrent Neural Networks

Recurrent neural networks can solve some types of problems that regular feed-forward networks cannot handle.

How To Consume a WebAPI with RestSharp

The open source library RestSharp is designed to make consuming APIs from .NET easy and work across platforms.

Creating a Genuine Value Object

Peter addresses reader's concerns by showing how to implement a read-only/immutable value object.

An Intern Battles the Monster App

What Martin wanted was to fulfill his internship requirement for his degree and possibly earn a little spending money for his efforts. He got both of these and the experience of meeting "The Monster."

Managing Functions in TypeScript

Functions in TypeScript aren't handled the way you'd expect, based on any other language (including JavaScript). Fortunately, because of the way TypeScript handles functions, you're protected from a common JavaScript error (in addition to getting better IntelliSense support and compile-time checking, of course).

It's Universal: Understanding the Lifecycle of a Windows 10 Application

Nick Randolph pulls apart the lifecycle of a Windows 10 application and reveals what goes on programmatically when users launch, switch between and close Windows 10 apps.

Building a Better MVC Helper

Readers suggest ways to build a powerful HtmlHelper that simplifies creating typical application Views. Along the way, Peter uses a workaround for extending an anonymous object with additional properties and shows how to extract values from a lambda expression in a View.

Native Services with Xamarin.Forms? It's DependencyService to the Rescue

Sometimes you need to make platform-specific calls. That's where DependencyService comes in handy.

Strategies for Isolating Applications

If you're not careful, you'll replace your huge, lumbering unmaintainable enterprise applications with a web of applications that can't be changed without blowing each other up. But if you apply the same tools you use inside your applications to your application architecture, you can avoid that.

The Power of Command Pattern with SharePoint

Command pattern helps to encapsulate a request as an object and lets you parameterize clients with queues, all while supporting undoable operations. I'll explain how to use command pattern using an example in which we create a list in SharePoint with Visual Studio.

How To Reuse Neural Network Models

Neural network models can be created, saved and reused. Here's how.

Distributed Concurrent Actor Models with Akka.NET

Ease the pain of concurrent programming with the Actor Model and Akka.NET.

9 Top .NET UI Component Collections

Simplify development of your next project by taking advantage of these UI control collections.

Domain-Driven Development: Where Does the Code Go?

Rather than arbitrarily deciding what code goes into an application and what goes into your business objects, you can lean on the rules that experienced developers have learned to follow to make those crucial decisions.
