Short and sweet. I discovered the other day that the Toronto Public Library actually gives members access to O'Reilly Safari  -- I was instantly jealous! You probably already know that this is a pretty good service chock-a-block full of great resources. Any...

ASP.net Core 1 Projects on .NET Core 2
A small post for today although something I think could trip others up.  I'm trying out the latest WebJobs 3.0 beta which is a port of the 2.0 version with .net Core 2.0 support.  This is really exciting as .net Core projects are considerably easier to work...

So I tried live streaming last night...
What fun! The interesting twist is that I wasn't gaming! I did it for software development! It's probably not a new concept, but I came about the idea of streaming my coding sessions while talking with my wife about my presentations and community involvemen...

The Cons, Winnipeg's New Splash Pads
I never had the chance to be ungrateful, the new splash pad at Kildare and Wabasha isn't a splash pad at all.  It was taken away from us and replaced with an "aquatic park" , a little bit of wordsmithing designed to gloss over the fact that an open piece of...
