Implementing Sorting and Paging in Web API using OData queries
The client displaying data returned by a Web API may want to implement sorting or paging on the data being returned. Although there can be different ways to implement these features, a simple technique is to use OData support offered by the Web API.

Implementing Sorting and Paging in ASP.NET MVC
Displaying records in a table is a very common requirement in many web applications. Such a table also needs facilities such as sorting the data based on a specific column and pagination for the sake of easy navigation and display. Unlike ASP.NET web forms, MVC doesn't have readymade server controls such as GridView to ease your job. One needs to either use a third-party helper or make some custom provision to accomplish this task. This article shows how persistent and bidirectional sorting as well as paging can be implemented in ASP.NET MVC without any external dependencies.

Display image from byte array in ASP.NET MVC
Displaying images from wellknown URLs is quite straightforward. At times, however, you need to display images that are available as raw binary data. Consider, for example, that you are building a Captcha system that generates images on the fly. These images won't reside on the server as physical files. They will be generated and held in memory using System.Drawing classes (or something similar). To display them you can't point the src attribute of an element to a particular URL as such.

Securing ASP.NET MVC Applications with ASP.NET Identity
ASP.NET offers Forms Authentication as one of the authentication schemes. Developers often use Forms Authentication in combination with membership, roles and profile features to provide security to their web applications. Over the years the needs of authentication schemes used in a web application have changed. To take into account these changing trends Microsoft has released ASP.NET Identity - a new way to authenticate users of your web application. This article describes how ASP.NET Identity can be used in an ASP.NET MVC application from the ground up.

Using Display Templates and Editor Templates in ASP.NET MVC
ASP.NET MVC developers often use HTML helpers such as LabelFor() and TextBoxFor() to display model properties on a view. Although this approach works fine in many situations, it proves to be inadequate when you wish to customize how data is presented to the user for displaying and for editing. Luckily, you can use display templates and editor templates to overcome this limitation. This article discusses what display templates and editor templates are and how to use them in an ASP.NET MVC application.

Wrapping multiple calls to SaveChanges() in a single transaction
When you make any additions, modifications and deletions to an Entity Framework DbSet and call SaveChanges(), EF starts a new transaction and executes all the INSERT, UPDATE and DELETE operations inside that newly created transaction. If the call to SaveChanges() succeeds the underlying transaction is committed, otherwise the transaction is rolled back. In some cases you may want that multiple calls to SaveChanges() be executed in the same transaction. Luckily, Entity Framework 6 provides an easy way to accomplish the same.

Self-Hosting an ASP.NET Web API
ASP.NET Web API can be either be hosted in IIS or in a separate host process. The former approach is usually appropriate when the Web API is part of a web application and one or more web applications are going to consume it. The later approach is suitable when you wish to avoid the overhead of hosting the Web API in IIS and want to have something lightweight. Hosting a Web API inside IIS is quite straightforward as the process is identical to hosting a web application. On the other hand, hosting a Web API in it's own process requires the creation of a host application and is referred as self-hosting. This article shows in step-by-step manner how to self-host a Web API and how to consume it using a client application.

गुरुपौर्णिमेच्या निमित्ताने ज्ञानेश्वरी विषयी काही...
ज्ञानेश्वरी माझा गुरुग्रंथ तर आहेच पण माझ्या आवडीच्या नित्यापाठातील योगाग्रंथांपैकी एक आहे. माझी आणि ज्ञानेश्वरीची भेट कशी झाली, त्या नंतरच्या काही वर्षात त्र्यंबकेश्वर येथे माझी कुंडलिनी जागृत काशी झाली आणि मला आदिनाथ ते ज्ञाननाथ या सिद्ध नाथ परंपरेचे ज्योर्तीमय दर्शन कसे घडले ते मी "देवाच्या डाव्या हाती" या पुस्तकात सविस्तर सांगितले आहे. तेव्हा त्याची पुनरावृत्ती करत नाही. मला ज्ञानेश्वरी अन्य गीता ग्रंथांच्या तुलनेने वेगळी का वाटते असं जर कोणी विचारील तर त्याची मुख्य कारणे खालीलप्रमाणे.

पाच मिनिटांच्या पाच साधना (भाग ५ - उज्जायी प्राणायाम)
उज्जायी हा हठयोगातील एक महत्वाचा प्राणायाम आहे. या प्राणायामात कंठ संकोच करून श्वास आत घेतला जातो आणि बाहेर सोडला जातो. या प्रक्रियेमुळे श्वास दिर्घ आणि खोल होतो. परिणामी फुप्फुसांमध्ये हवा जास्त प्रमाणात घेतली जाते. मूळ हठयोगोक्त उज्जायी करताना कंठ संकोच खूप अधिक प्रमाणात केला जातो त्यामुळे घशातून शिट्टी सारखा आवाज येतो. ही पद्धत प्राणायामासाठी जरी योग्य असली तरी ध्यान-धारणेसाठी एवढ्या अधिक प्रमाणात कंठ संकोच करण्याची गरज नसते. केवळ हलका कंठ करून घशातून मंद घोरल्यासारखा आवाज येईल एवढेच बघावे. आता धारणेसाठी उज्जायी प्राणायामाचा उपयोग कसा करायचा ते पाहू.

Learning, Unlearning and ASP.NET
Software industry is one of the most dynamic industries to work with. Everyday something new comes up and you have no option but to learn it to be in the race. While learning is a commonly acquired skill by software developers, not many can acquire the unlearning abilities. My experience of training software developers tells me that this skill - unlearning - can dramatically affect your experience with a technology or tool you are learning.

Learn new technologies efficiently
As a software developer you need to deal with the rapidly changing IT industry and keeping yourself updated with the new technologies is one of the most important skills that you need to have. Sadly the fact is many developers find this task too daunting. A common complaint is there is so much to learn and deciding the right learning path is difficult. This task is made difficult further by the fact that new skills must be acquired in a timely manner. If you are too late to upgrade your skills you face the risk of missing good opportunities.

Formal classroom training is still good for you
As an IT trainer I come in contact with dozens of .NET software developers, team leaders and managers. One common area where most of them struggle is - keeping themselves updated with the latest technology. Especially so when technology is quite new to them (say VB6 developer wanting to learn ASP.NET or a web forms developer wanting to learn MVC). While for software developers it may sound like a part of their job they find this task quite hard because they need to strike a balance between available time, personal life, and ongoing project pressures.
