Be a Dependency Injection Ninja with Ninject

Howdy all, Firstly, a big old fashioned apology for not being ‘on-the-wire’ much over recent weeks. It’s been an interesting time having accepted an exciting new job, which is amazing; but I’ve also had to contend with a few other sizeable life-boulders off to the side. Nothing I can’t handle, of course, so here I […]

C# Interactive Initialisation Trick

Hi there, A little aside this one; something very, very cool that I’ve noticed with the advent of Visual Studio Update 2. Without question, this rates as a MUST CHECK OUT Visual Studio feature.

Time to […]

Nope, today we’ll be looking at the lazy keyword in C# and trying […]

Although not too difficult to implement, I did struggle a little to find C# based server side examples on how to ultimately validate a CAPTCHA. To start us off however, what is reCAPTCHA? reCAPTCHA is essentially a mechanism to protect your […]

It’s a fantastic, gorgeous Saturday morning (it’ll be Monday by the time I hit the publish button, such is the enormity of the post!); the birds are chirping, the sun is shining through the balcony windows (and there is a bloody wasp outside, STILL!!!) and my wife has left me…………to go on […]
