Hello everybody! After a long time without any single post, I’m back here to give you an awesome tip. How to use git for your C# projects, and the best part, with Dropbox, so you can access your files wherever you are. (Ok, that’s a little too much).

Git is a tool to control revision and you can find everything in here, the official website.

Well, for almost for years developing in C#, last month was the first time I ended up drawing graphs in an application I’m developing. After a couple of hours looking at the internet, I found an easy way to do it. You only need to add the coordinates, x and y, or only one of those and that’s it. It’s done!

Improving your gedit with gmate – a great code editor!

Hallo zusammen! Hello everybody! Wow, it’s been more than a month since my last post here. Things have been really rough at University. I’ll try again to keep a post per week, I have a job now as a .NET developer, so probably there will be more posts about C# than Rails.

But nothing’s lost yet! I’m still having fun with RoR at home when it’s possible.
And I came here today for a quick post and great tip for you, Rails beginner developer.

Well, I’m now using Ubuntu 11.04, since its release. Personally, I’m finding it awesome. For sure there are still a few bugs, but, I hardly recommend it. And since I’m still using Ubuntu, gedit/gmate is my favorite one.

Building a simple server client application using C#

Hello everybody! Here I am again to show you a simple, or maybe I can say the simplest way to build a server client application using C#. I said last time I would write a Rails code, but, promise to do that next time.

It’s just a bunch of lines and there you go, you already have your application running, you can test both (server and client) on your computer, or if you have another one, you can test and play with it too.

After the tutorial, I’ll let the whole code for you to download. But before that I will go through it step by step, trying to make things clear.

So, stop the chit chat and let’s get some work done!
