JSON Toolkit update, CSV Toolkit

Posted on 8/24/2015

So, many of you have been wondering where I have been for the past year. Well, truth is, a lazy developer I am - after so many hours facing Visual Studio during office hours, I usually tend to avoid doing the same when I get home. Anyway, today I have updated the JSON Toolkit to 4.4. For those who have not yet tried, it is an optimized JSON parser written in C#. In fact, it out performs many of the popular .NET JSON frameworks out there, including JSON.NET and Microsoft's JavaScript ...

Virtual Box vs Hyper-V in 2014: which one is faster?

Posted on 12/21/2014

Recently I had to decide between VirtualBox and Hyper-V as my virtualization platform for SharePoint server. Using it as a development machine, I have the flexibility to pick either one without production environment considerations. There were a few articles on the web which compare the two, but they were all dated back to at least 2011. So, how do they actually perform in 2014? One thing which I would like to note of is that Hyper-V Generation 2 machines use UEFI boot instead of the ...

FGT update for Graph v2.0

Posted on 8/18/2014

Greetings! It has been more than a year since the last release of Facebook Graph Toolkit. Now that I have finished my very busy workload (and before the next wave begin!), it's time for an update. Released about 2 weeks ago, the latest FGT binaries updates the API endpoint to v2.0, the latest released by Facebook. Up to 100 endpoints, 258 fields and 45 enum values have been updated and tested against v2.0. Finally, a potential memory leak causing network socket exhaustion is fixed. The library ...

JSON Toolkit 4.2 update

Posted on 9/25/2013

This update completes the JSON Toolkit by adding the missing deserializing feature in the previous release. To deseriaize a JSON string to a .NET class, all you need is one line of C# code: var u2 = (User)Serialize.Deserialize(typeof(User), new JsonObject(someJSONstring)); Here's a more complete example: var someJsonString = "{\"Name\":\"Hello World\"}"; var u2 = (User)Serialize.Deserialize(typeof(User), new JsonObject(someJSONstring));   Isn't that easy and straight forward?

Facebook Graph Toolkit 5.0

Posted on 7/20/2013

The last release, FGT 4.0, was exactly a year ago. I am pretty proud that the library was stable and did not require any update for such a long period of time. Starting today, the new FGT 5.0 is the available for download. Completely redesigned from the ground up, FGT 5.0 makes it easier than ever to implement Facebook's API in .NET! A strongly typed Facebook API for .NET What makes a good programming library? It is the ability to do more with less code. It makes your program clearn, easier to ...
