Bootstrap 4 Succinctly Released

The 8th book Iv’e written to date for Syncfusion’s ever popular Succinctly eBook series, and the third one one Bootstrap.

As Bootstrap continually gets better and more feature rich, then there is a need to keep up to date with the latest offerings it provides.

In this book, I take you on a just over 100 page tour of what’s new, and what it can now do (Hint: Flexbox rules!!!) and show you how to produce some interesting layouts.

Best part about it all is it’s free!!!

You can grab a copy here: Succinctly eBooks

Typescript for the C# developer

Over the past couple of years, my most popular talk that Iv’e taken around user groups has been the one where I describe what Typescript is, and how it relates to the backend C# developer.

Iv’e found that many back-end devs who would like to jump into client side development, are often put off from doing so simply beacuse of the percieved mess that the JavaScript eco system is in at present, and let’s be fair it’s not a compleatly unfounded reason either, beacuse JavaScript is bleeding at the edges in a great many places.

Build Automation for Dotnet Core Apps

In a previous blog post I documented how I built a “Build Server” to deploy .NET 4.6+ apps on windows 2012 server.

While this worked, and was a reasonably good way to do it, It wasn’t without it’s problems. During it’s use for example I frequently had timing problems, where just one little change to some JS code would cause NPM to overrun a time out by half a second, or where an SSH connection timed out just slightly before the build server completed it’s login, and on top of all that, it regularly used to take about 15 minutes to build and deploy the project it was being used for.

Can you believe it’s 3 years since I wrote my first eBook for the Syncfusion Succinctly series, back in January 2013 Syncfusion released “GIS Succinctly”, I never really though it would go much further than that because I really didn’t believe I had that much to offer as a technical writer.

HTML5 Validation

I recently got asked what HTML5 validation looks like.

Needless to say this was a bit of a strange question, but as I read on through the question, I realized that is wasn’t a case of not knowing what HTML5 validation looks like, but a case of where jQuery validation stopped and the HTML5 stuff started.

In this quick post, I’m going to briefly cover the HTML5 validation stuff in the hopes it’ll clear a few things up.
