  • Why I moved away from Sencha to Phonejs? posted on 25 Mar 2014

    Sencha is well known framework for mobile development. Not only mobile development but it is doing a hell of a lot of thing other than mobile development. Not only that it is surely having wonderful history with JavaScript framework development. I don't have anything to complain against that.

  • Failed attempt to write series, again! posted on 24 Mar 2014

    I have tried writing complete series again. And again failed. And I am stopping it again.

    I have already wrote a blog post about how to get started with service stack if any one is using templates. It is pretty easy. Just install and run.

    But as Service Stack is moved to V4 with some breaking changes. I had give details about updating it. But still it is little bit more complicated or confusing if I can say.

  • When Servicestack meet F# via Side Waffle posted on 07 Feb 2014

    I have specific love for Servicestack and that is known thing. It is not because it is awesome or the ways it do web service things, no one else is doing. But because of my past with WCF. It is so rocky that I never want to go back. And more over Servicestack doing hell lot of the things under the cover, and that is also without doing any damn thing into XML.

    Hell, yes.. No XML...

    Ok, I can write on and on for Servicestack but for now it is not the topic. Topic is about Shaving the Yak. There are many hatters of Visual Studio and its project file. I also don't mind sometimes joining the league. But for most of the cases it is doing many things, that we need to do otherwise.

  • Should I continue writing more poems? posted on 05 Feb 2014

    Long back I have tried my hand to writing poems. And trust me I am no where near poetic part. I have good grip over language but that is only for my mother tongue. I am quite comfortable with English but still no where near having artistic touch. Or in simple language my database of words is not that strong. But normally I am able to convey my feelings.

    I can say, I am pretty lucky in the case of writing poems. Though I have write only few, many of them got good review from whom so ever read it. But that charm doesn't last that much.

    I wrote a poem for my sister and it don't get any kind of review. I do got personal message from sister after a long time that "it was sweet". But that all because she is my sister. Personally if I like to give review to my this poem it is not good at all. There are tsunami of feeling I wanted to convert and I just converted drops of it. And at that moment I decided, will never write poem; at least never in public.

  • Functional Programming Need in Web Development posted on 17 Dec 2013

    Whenever I talk about Functional Programming people with experience in web make faces. And seriously don't blame them.

    Issue is mainly Functional Programming stays in back ground only. If you see any starting example of any functional language is mainly some machine learning example or some complicated algorithm example. And that may effect normal people to getting started with Functional Programming.

    But functional programming can do far more than that. And that include simple things too. And I means it can make thing simpler or I can say it can make easy thing simple.

    Here, if I say have to put web case here. May be web is right now most appropriate place where functional programming can be used. And reason is damn simple, current web projects are getting bigger and bigger and user base is also getting even larger. Now, to support that hardware is also getting better and better.
