“Old Guard”

Someone asked Chris Ferdinandi what his biggest challenge is as a web developer:
… the thing I struggle the most with right now is determining when something new is going to change the way our industry works for the better, and when it’s just a fad that will fade away in a year or three.
I try to avoid jumping from fad to fad, but I also don’t want to be that old guy who misses out on something that’s …

ABeamer: a frame-by-frame animation framework

In a recent post, Zach Saucier demonstrated the awesome things that the DOM allows us to do, thanks to the element. Taking a snapshot of an element and manipulating it to create an exploding animation is pretty slick and a perfect example of how far complex animations have come in the last few years.

How to Code With DSE6 + .NET

First steps. Let’s get .NET installed and setup. I’m running Ubuntu 18.04 for this setup. To install .NET on Ubuntu one needs to go through a multi-command process of keys and some other stuff, fortunately Microsoft’s teams have made this almost easy by providing the commands for the various Linux distributions here. The commands I ran are as follows to get all this initial setup done.
wget -qO- https://packages.microsoft.com/keys/microsoft.asc | gpg –dearmor > microsoft.asc.gpg
sudo mv microsoft.asc.gpg /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/
wget -q https://packages.microsoft.com/config/ubuntu/18.04/prod.list
sudo mv prod.list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/microsoft-prod.list
sudo chown root:root /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/microsoft.asc.gpg
sudo chown root:root /etc/apt/sources.list.d/microsoft-prod.list
After all this I could then install the .NET SDK. It’s been so long since I actually installed .NET on anything that I wasn’t sure if I just needed the runtime, the SDK, or what I’d actually need. I just assumed it would be safe to install the SDK and then install the runtime too.
