Go – an Old wine from Google

Google is coming out with a new programming language with title as “GO” and the tag line for this programming language is, “a systems programming language…” In my first impression all that got to my mind is that, most of the concepts are taken from programming languages like C and other few more features like GC from current world’s programming languages. The 1Hr talk by Rob is posted on YouTube. Interesting.. After going thru the entire presentation, all it struck to my mind is the title of this post. What about you?

The importance of ‘Return’ keyword at JavaScript

Recently, while coding for a Text Field value padded with left zeros, realised the importance of the RETURN key word for the FUNCTION written in JavaScript. Before i mention the actual importance, let me describe you the situation. Scenario: A Text box need to be padded with zeros and should have the length of 7 digits, even the data entered is less than 7. Ex: When the key board input being 88, the text box should show 0000088. Note the ZEROs padded on left. So, started with a JavaScript function as mentioned below function PadZeros(x) { var v = x.value; … Continue reading The importance of ‘Return’ keyword at JavaScript

C# 3.0 – What’s New : {Implicit}-Part1

Recent development in my technical life is that, started working out with Orcas Beta 2. So, thought to blog about the latest happenings with C# language. The idea emerged to start a series of posts related to C# new features. This is the first of ever such kind of blogging specific to a topic. C# 3.0 has many-a-new features.

Tafiti Search Engine from Microsoft

Tafiti uses both Microsoft Silverlight and Live Search to explore the intersection of richer experiences on the Web and the increasing specialization of search. My experience with Tafiti is awesome. It is a great visual treat. The features as of now I found to be great is the type specific. In other words, as you could see here when you search … Continue reading Tafiti Search Engine from Microsoft

Runtime Polymorphism

One of the frequently seen situations from a technical standpoint in a large scale of Business Layer objects is, invoking methods from different objects when they contain same method name. Today, am going to make it simple to give an example for Runtime Polymorphism. Leave your comments if am mistaken At this stage, I don’t think to mention about “Polymorphism”, as hope that you are aware of how polymorphic behavior can be fused using C#. If you want a start up, in simple words, implementation of one Method with many definitions, as mentioned below. class Employee{/// <summary>/// Invoked for the … Continue reading Runtime Polymorphism

PaaS or SaaS

There is a big debate going on with these two buzz words. Before we get to the point of this post, let’s first examine what they are… and what they mean by to the development force. SaaS : By definition it goes like this, Software As A Service. In the good olden days, we are used to think the application as whole system and all the modules have to function only with in. But as the technology evolved and the new horizons are leading the development process to newer levels, we got a new dimension as “Web Service”. This concept … Continue reading PaaS or SaaS
