That's quite impressive, giving the opportunity to link a NodeJS application directly with .NET:

That gives NodeJS access to the certificate store and windows authentification, peripherals (camera, speakers, printer, ...), Active Directory, WCF and several other things.
Run .NET and node.js in process

Anyone with a mixed setup for web development, e.g. Java in the backend and (of course) JavaScript in the browser?

The following post tells you for example how to get your configured Grunt tasks for the JavaScript-side into a Maven process.
Personally I am still trying to get NodeJS, a prerequisite for Grunt, on some of our TFS build servers - which is actually not a technical issue... ;-)

Good news for JavaScript developers!

With version 1.0 yeoman made some big steps forward. I am pretty happy that Grunt (http://www.gruntjs.com) is no longer assimilated by Yeoman, but they made a proper separation into Yo and  the original tools.

Have fun, Roland
 
Yo, One Point Oh!

'Allo 'Allo! Today, Yeoman 1.0 Release Candidate 1 has been released!

Since the 1.0 Beta emerged over four months ago, we have received a lot of feedback about how Yeoman has been integrated into your workflow.

One of the most important missions of the Yeoman project is helping you learn your craft. When you use Yeoman, you will be given a baseline application which incorporates various NPM modules, Grunt plugins, and Bower libraries that the community-- not just the Yeoman team-- deems best. Combined, these comprise the tools you need to create and maintain a production-ready application.

To see what’s changed, upgrade with a simple command:

$ npm uninstall -g yo && npm install -g yo

Or, if you’re just getting started with Yeoman, use NPM to globally install yo:

$ npm install -g yo

The additional Grunt and Bower dependencies will now be installed for you automatically.

When you're ready to create an application, you'll need to install a "generator". You can think of a generator like a "plug-in". They are full of prompts and templates unique to the type of application you wish to create. There are over 100 generators already available on NPM.

The Yeoman team, with the help of the community, has just released updates to several of the most commonly used generators.

* Webapp - https://github.com/yeoman/generator-webapp
* Angular - https://github.com/yeoman/generator-angular
* Backbone - https://github.com/yeoman/generator-backbone
* Ember - https://github.com/yeoman/generator-ember

Sometimes, you don't need to create an entire application. There are also shiny new generators for:

* Gruntfiles - https://github.com/yeoman/generator-gruntfile
* Grunt Plug-Ins - https://github.com/yeoman/generator-gruntplugin
* CommonJS Modules - https://github.com/yeoman/generator-commonjs
* Node Modules - https://github.com/yeoman/generator-node
* jQuery Plug-Ins - https://github.com/yeoman/generator-jquery

To install and use a basic web app generator, for example:

$ npm install -g generator-webapp
$ yo webapp

If you need suggestions for generators, say “yo” to the man, himself. No, really. You can summon his attention by simply saying:

$ yo

In addition to searching NPM for generators, he will help keep your installed generators up to date, and even initialize a new application for you.

Exactly one year ago, the world was first introduced to Yeoman. The last 52 weeks have been filled with bug fixes, performance tweaks, community discussions, and countless late nights. The tireless work of our team has been leading up to this announcement, and we couldn't be more pleased with the results.

Keep in mind that this is a Release Candidate, so you might see a bug or two. If you do run into issues or have any questions, the team is always available to help. Visit http://yeoman.io/support.html to help point you in the right direction-- or just snap your fingers and Yeoman himself will be at your side with a fresh cup of tea!

Wait, that's a Yeoman 2.0 feature we're kicking around. Pull requests welcome!

Happy app'n,

+Paul Irish 
+Addy Osmani 
+Sindre Sorhus 
+Pascal Hartig 
+Stephen Sawchuk 
+Brian Ford 
+Frederick ROS 
and the Yeoman Community.

Who needs WebGL for 3D rendering if CSS 3D can do the job! :)

(Using IE? Sorry guys, you won't get a show for WebGL nor for CSS 3D)
Tridiv is a web-based editor for creating 3D shapes in CSS

Light Table... might sound familiar for the DSLR fans among us. Isn't that something for my RAW images? Nooo, that is either Adobe Light Room or the open source project Dark Table. Light Table is something completely different for developers! ;-)

The developer should be able to move things around, keep clutter down, and bring information to the foreground in the places he needs it most. An IDE should be more like the large table other engineers have for their work - not a bunch of windows.
More info and lots of videos can be found here: http://www.chris-granger.com/2012/04/12/light-table---a-new-ide-concept/

Got nosy? Download the alpha and play arround with it: http://www.lighttable.com/ 
Currently there is support for JavaScript, Clojure and Python. My personal opinion: It's still buggy, but it's fun :-)

Cheers, Roland

This indeed is cool!
Although I still try to avoid JavaScript :)

And suddenly it was here: After several months without any official release date, Grunt version 0.4.0 appeared.

It's time to update my tasks and gruntfiles... :-)

Die Bahn beweist direkt Humor. Bei Ankunft in München stand heute auf allen Anzeigen im und am Zug "Willkommen in der Vize Stadt München". Da scheint jemand seinen Frust vom verlorenen Champions League Finale zu verarbeiten. ;)

Und eigentlich war das ja der ICE 721. Die historische Jahreszahl des dreifachen Vize-Titelgewinns des FC Bayern hat man dann wohl in die Zugnummer kodiert.

I am a big fan of the MVVM design pattern – maybe that's why I really liked playing arround with KnockoutJS, when I evaluated several JavaScript libraries some months ago. ;-)

+Addy Osmani wrote a nice blog entry on this topic. Could be of interest for some of you.
 
I recently sat down to write about MVVM from the perspective of a JavaScript developer. What is the pattern, how is it useful, how can we use it and how do frameworks with MVVM support (like KnockoutJS) compare to say, Backbone?.
