Self Description - Text
One of the xkcd.com comics that has really stuck with me over the years is this one: The part that inspired me to write some Go code wasn't the image itself, but the hover text which reads as follows: The contents of any one panel are dependent on the conte...

Simple Git configurations for beginners (like me)
     As the shores of Microsoft disappear over the horizon, I find myself using tools that I used to think of as convoluted command line hacks and black magic.  Things like Git.  Of course, now that' I've used Git for several months in a for real multi-user...

I'm going to give it a shot anyway.  I've read enough about Go to find it really interesting.  I want to learn something outside of the .Net world so I can actually call myself a polyglot programmer.  I'm sure I'm going to ge...

New Post
While creating a demo application for an upcoming blog post, I found myself with a method where I copy pasted the same code to work with three different types. I looked at the code and thought, "I should just create an interface for these small classes and rewrite this as one method that's ...

Life without a .Net
I wrote code exclusively on the Microsoft platform from 1997 until late 2013.  Sixteen years of ASP, ASP.Net, Visual Basic (4,5&6), VB.Net, wonderful C# and lots of MS SQL Server.  I could take a pile of computer parts, assemble them into a server, load the...

Before I get into Go Routines and Channels (which are both really cool), I thought I'd do some more direct C# to Go translation.  So, I took a FizzBuzz project that I had written in C# and converted it to Go.   - See more at: http://www.jonwear.com/2013/09/fizzbuzz-adventures-in-golang.html#sthash.u3jIs3MZ.dpuf

Sooner or later there will come a time when you have a collection of one type of object that you want to map to another type of object.  There might be a user object that contains many properties about the user but when displ...

Blog post about using Dapper with C# and how sometimes things don't appear to be case sensitive.
Well...yes, of course. It's well known that C# is case sensitive(interesting discussion on this can be found here). If you declare a variable like this... string name = "John"; ...it will be different than a variable declared this way... string nAme = "Smith"; One of the easiest ways to tell if ...

Part 3 of getting started with Dapper.
In part three I cover how to use alternate constructors for types used with Dapper. In parts 1 & 2 I used the default parameterless constructor but that doesn't work in every situation. Dapper can also make use of a constructor that matches the type and field names returned in a recordset in ...
