This post will walk you through the step-by-step procedure on building a simple ASP.NET 5 application using AngularJS with Web API.


Ruby likes ducks. Which is to say that when we're coding, and we have an object, we don't particularly care what kind of object it is, so long as it responds to the messages we send it. It might be a Duck or a Child or a Doctor, and as long as when we call #quack we hear a noise, all is well. That's called Duck Typing, and Ruby digs it.


The CSS power couple. When used together, these properties allow you to create simple animations and add valuable interaction and visual feedback for your users.


'Interaction design' is one of those newish buzzwords that has become strongly tied into the UX design process. In 2015 it's no longer enough for interface elements to instantly switch between two static states. Today words like 'slide' and 'bounce' and 'rebound' have come into the conversation on how good user interfaces work.


The stack view provides a streamlined interface for laying out a collection of views in either a column or a row. For views embedded in a stack view, you no longer need to define auto layout constraints. The stack view manages the layout of its subviews and automatically applies layout constrants for you.


“I perfectly understand our CSS. I never have any issues with cascading rules. I never have to use !important or inline styles. Even though somebody else wrote this bit of CSS, I know exactly how it works and how to extend it. Fixes are easy! I have a hard time breaking our CSS. I know exactly where to put new CSS. We use all of our CSS and it’s pretty small overall. When I delete a template, I know the exact corresponding CSS file and I can delete it all at once. Nothing gets left behind.”
