Last week I wrote a post on how to get started with GitHub. It was part of a session I presented during a company trip early September. The second part of the session showed how you can quickly setup an ASP.NET MVC application and integrate Twitter Bootstrap into it.

Been a couple of months since I got around to writing a new post for this blog…busy times. Just got back from a company team building event in Tunisia last weekend. During this event we held 6 sessions about various topics such as Web API (@JefClaes), Roslyn (@svenschelfaut), Solid…etc.
I gave a session about using various alternative technologies (read as: non Microsoft) to build a web application from scratch. These included:
So we’ve got everything from source control (GitHub), to layout (Bootstrap), database (MongoDB), client-side data binding / UI refreshes / … (Knockout) and deployment (AppHarbor).
Let’s discuss the first part in this article, namely GitHub. If you are already familiar with it, then you won’t learn anything new here. However if you are a Windows developer and have never used Git, this might be an easy way to get familiar with it.

The previous article, Getting Started with the Live SDK: Authorization, shows you have to request a user’s permission to access parts of their Live ID, including SkyDrive.

In a move to compete with DropBox, Google Drive…etc. Microsoft revamped SkyDrive this week incorporating most of Mesh‘s features. If you signed up for SkyDrive before April 22nd, and have uploaded at least one file, be sure to apply for the free upgrade to 25 GB.
I wrote a couple of articles on the use of the DropBox REST API. Microsoft’s revamp made me curious to see if I could do the same with the SkyDrive API.

Wondering how much it differs from the previous version I created a Bitly account and started coding…

Mayhap came here sooner than I thought. The previous article on the WPD API dealt with deleting resources. Too destructive perhaps, let’s create some resources this time.
My Kindle’s is hooked up to my PC. Let’s see if I can transfer a book to it.

Last year I wrote three articles about the Windows Portable Devices (WDP) API, namely:
Regularly I get questions asking me how to add or delete resources from a WPD compatible device. Let’s focus on removing resources first. Mayhap I’ll write another post about adding resources next time.
I’m going to connect my Kindle and see if I can’t delete a book from it.
