Build Your Own Dashboard

October 27, 2012 Leave a comment

I had a great time presenting on Build Your Own Dashboards at the SQL Saturday #174 Charlotte BI Edition.  Thank you to everyone who came to my session and participated in my talk.

Here is a link to the sample dashboard site I presented on:

Dashboards

Be advised that this site and the sample code is only optimized for IE 9.  You need to provide CSS3 vendor specific entries for WebKit and Mozilla if you want this to work perfectly in Chrome, Safari, and Firefox.

Here are the slides and sample code:

Thanks again for the opportunity…

I am excited to be speaking at the SQL Saturday #174 Charlotte BI Edition event on October 27, 2012!

Here is my presentation summary:

Need to have some dashboard reports that support cross-platform devices?  Ever wanted to build your dashboard and see it on the iPad or Android, or Windows 8 Surface?  With this session, we will take a look at what it takes to provide simple dashboards using goodness of HTML5.  We will look at using client-side JavaScript to provide our data using Web API and JSON.

Looking forward to seeing you there!

ASP.NET MVC4 and WebAPI

I will be speaking Tuesday, May 15 at the Greenville Spartanburg Developers Guild in Greenville, SC on ASP.NET MVC4 and Web API.

Here is my presentation summary:

Microsoft likes big stacks! Look at Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) or, better yet, Windows Communication Foundation (WCF). With either of these “foundations”, you start out a noob and you come out the other side a freak’in Ph.D in Quantum Physics. It doesn’t have to be that hard! There has to be a better way.

Well, Microsoft has been definitely been going the right direction. If you have followed any of the work on the WCF Web API, then you know how awesome this stuff is. This is its new home but you can still self host just like you could before. We are talking about a Web API that is heavily Convention-Over-Configuration based! Gone are the days of looking through a myriad of documentation as to how to setup your web.config file. Those days are over and you will be surprised at how nice the new stack is.

Look forward to seeing you there!

Raleigh Code Camp

I will be presenting the following topic “Building a Windows Phone 7 App using JSON/ASP.NET MVC Data Service Layer” at the Raleigh Code Camp this weekend. We will take a look at leveraging ASP.NET MVC and JSON to become your best friend from the point of data serialization. Want to build a simple WP7 application? Want a simple way to pass data back and forth from the server? JSON seems to be the obvious choice when developing web applications, how does it work when developing WP7 applications? I am looking forward to it!
