    RadAsyncUpload for ASP.NET AJAX Revisited

    File API and Drag and Drop RadAsyncUpload has undergone significant changes since it's initial release back in Q1 2010. With the advent of the HTML 5 FileAPI and the updates to the XMLHttpRequest object, it is now easier than ever to utilize AJAX mechanisms when uploading files, a practice that was hardly possible prior to that.

    How to Pick Your Platform: Silverlight, Metro, or HTML5

      While Windows 8 is ushering in an exciting new model for Windows development called "Metro style apps" that run a new "unified" Windows Runtime (WinRT), it's not necessarily the right choice for all new Windows software development. In fact, there are a lot scenarios where it's not a good choice. In this over-simplified decision tree, I try to provide some crude logic for how to pick between your platform options. Clearly, there are many nuances not covered in this tree, but I'll work on expanding the "logic" to make it more bullet proof in the coming weeks. The first decision is the most important, though: Do you need to continue...
