GPS Library for Windows 10 IoT and Raspberry Pi

I am tinkering with Raspberry Pi 3 (RasPi) and Windows 10 IoT Core. I was thinking how to build an IoT device with GPS functionality in RasPi. Many IoT projects employ GPS module but they use it mostly with Arduino to build quadcopter. Some people tried it with RasPi, but they use it in Raspbian OS. No one seems tried to build directly with RPi and Windows. So, I made...

Generics in WCF REST JSON Communication

Overview So I got a taskĀ in designing a scalable and modular Service Oriented application using JSON and WCF. I am designing a web service using WCF. The communication between the web service and the client will be using JSON. While the server is using .NET Framework, the client is using Android Java. I aim to design the service as modular as possible. For every web service request from the client,...

I’ve been using Entity Framework since its introduction. Entity Framework (EF) is a powerful Object-Relational Mapping (ORM) framework for .NET Framework. I’ve been debating with my teammates whether EF is better than other ORM such as OpenAccess, which I believe is true, because EF provides the necessary feature to connect our program to the database, especially if you are using Microsoft products, SQL Server. In my thinking, why bother using...

Story of Modularity: Loading XML Files

Previously I told about achieving modularity in web application and I mentioned about using XML files as a configuration script for our module. This session, I’m going to explain the easy way to load external XML file to your program. This method doesn’t only work on web application, but in any .NET application. Where to Start? I usually start developing custom XML structure by typing directly to my XML file....

Story of Modularity: Achieving Modularity in Web Application

In my Heliosky.Story project, I am planning to create modularity on every part of the system. To achieve modularity, my program has to be able to load module or application part dynamically. Achieving modularity in web programming is not an easy task. Basically I am amazed with WordPress style of modularity, where they provide a full set of modular API so you can easily develop your custom theme, page, or...
