This is going to be the last post on the Html extension methods and we’re going to end with TEXTAREAS. If you’ve been following these posts, then you know what to expect: several overloads of a method which let you define the attributes you’d generally set up on a TEXTAREA control. The simplest of the […]

I’ve already talked about several method extensions helpers for injecting forms in a page. However, the latest release has introduce a couple more methods for doing that and I’ve thought I’d write a quick post on those new methods. Basically, you’ll have several overloads named BeginRouteForm which let you set the form’s action method from […]

Today we’ll keep looking at the helpers and see how we can add dropdowns and listboxes to our views. As you might expect, there are some helper methods that render the corresponding SELECT HTML element. They’re adequately named DropDownList and ListBox and,as you might expect, you’ll find several overloads of each. The main difference between […]

Today we’ll keep talking about the MVC framework and we’ll see how easy it is to add anchors to our apps. In the past, we’ve already seen that the framework introduces a class called UrlHelper that you can use in order to get the correct url for a specific action. So, adding an anchor to […]

Ok, I’m putting this here under windows 7 category, but I really don’t know if some of this stuff didn’t already exist in previous versions of windows (since I’m only running 7 now, I’m not sure if I’ll ever go back to see if it works or not). As you know, you can drag a […]

In these last 2 days I’ve been reading several documents on the ADO.NET Entity Framework. My main objective here is see if it is ready for being used in projects based on the DDD philosophy. Even though I still haven’t started writing code, it seems evident to me that EF is still a far away […]

Snowing is something which doesn’t happen that often here (and when it happens, it generally goes away really quickly). However, this year I’ve managed to get some time to go to our beautiful Pico do Arieiro where I took some pics with my wife’s phone (unfortunately the HTC I’ve bought is having problems again, but […]

I’ve just finished reading Steve Wozniak’s book and I can tell you that it was really an interesting experience. You’ll only be able to enjoy it if you’re into the history of the PC. In about 300 pages you’ll learn about his early inventions (his school calculator project was really interesting) and on how he […]

The cost of NNPP

Posted in Trivia       1 Comment »

So, what’s an NNPP? It’s a net negative producing programmer (sorry if the reference is no longer there when you try to access it – it seems like wikipedia thinks it should be removed…). I didn’t knew that acronym either. Thanks to my friend JPC, now I know. Btw, here’s a really interesting essay by […]
