Recently I started down the path to learn Elixir and the Phoenix framework. This is a language and framework I intend to use quite a bit, so my goal is to get from “barely able to read it” to “able to ship readable, idiomatic, testable apps”. Having learned a fairly large number of languages, libraries, […]

I’ve been playing around lately with a pure command-line Jasmine runner that doesn’t rely on a SpecRunner file to run tests. I work daily with a largish application that is well over 100K lines of front-end code and greater than 7000 front-end tests. While build servers like Jenkins and TeamCity provide some analytics around slow tests, there is still some digging involved to identify the best targets for improvement, something I’m hoping a local runner can make easier.

After initially playing around with text processing in my prior post, I added an additional algorithm and cleaned up the logic to make it easier to perform test runs and reuse later. I tweaked the RAKE algorithm implementation and added TextRank into the mix, with full sample code and links to sources available.

I’ve been bookmarking all of my online reading for the past 7 years and recently started thinking about using that dataset to dig into trends in my past reading and potentially build a model to start scoring content I haven’t read yet. Even though I have manual keywords for each entry, I decided to look into what I could get with unsupervised text classification techniques to balance out the fact that I had entered those labels over long periods of time.

You’re taking a break from the two week project and bump into Joe at the coffee machine. He’s a little frazzled and starts telling you about this little task he took on Monday that is kicking his butt. While he’s explaining you realize he might have missed a simpler answer, so you ask him if he tried it. He immediately gets angry, of course he tried it, what are you trying to say? ...

When you work with an ASP.Net project through Visual Studio, you can edit static files like CSS and JS files and see them immediately in your browser. Switch to a console application and self-hosted option, such as a self-hosted WebAPI or NancyFX site, and you’ll find that editing Content files will require restarting the debugger to see the changes.

Recently I was experimenting with Office 365 as a single-sign on source for an existing ASP.Net application. Unfortunately, most of the documentation I found focused on the use cases of having Visual Studio automatically add it as part of a new project, multiple versions of a very similar looking OWIN sample using built-in (black box) […]

Have you ever found yourself working on an ASP.net Action and noticed there isn’t a single Authorization attribute in sight? Or gone to edit an endpoint in WebAPI, only to realize you took a coffee break at exactly the wrong time and forgot to come back and add the authorization attribute…a month ago? Or the time you found an MVC endpoint with WebAPI Authorization attributes on it?
