MSP selections are ON - India

For those who don't know what MSP stands for MSP stands for Microsoft Student Partner. This student partner program is run by Microsoft to choose among many a few who are enthusiastic about technology and Microsoft. students from all over the globe are selected for this program. students who are selected are equipped with the task of informing others about the Microsoft technologies and products like the VS 2010:) and Silverlight etc etc. for this they may conduct sessions or hands on labs. in return MSPs get a lot. the best thing being the MSDN premium account :)
The good news is that now you can apply to be an MSP. All you need to do is go to the student-partners web site and click on the apply now box.
Though the selection process changes every time. The process will test your technological and public speaking skills and a technology related blog is always preferred. last time they asked us to upload a 3 min video about any MS technology. and then after that they asked us to collect 150 points by conducting various activities. last date to apply is 15th aug 2010.
details about creating student tech clubs is available here

mail me if you get stuck some where

Customized Online Learning Dangerous as it is Necessary

The recent uprise in Online Learning Platform like Pluralsight, Coursera has raised some important questions over traditional learning system and also on traditional examination systems.
The fact that online learning courses are derived from what users need and not what should be actually taught has also raised serious concerns about what is finally going inside the heads of professionals.

Traditional system while teaching any subject also includes major things that might never be used in real life but still is important to actual context of that particular subject. The syllabus goes through the hands of experts before finally reaching the learners. Online education / Videos have completely disrupted this system and now only what is needed is taught leaving out all the motivational factors and context of the subject that brings glamour and other related attributes to the identity of the subject.

So yes while system has to evolve to teach students more than C++ in today's world bu…

Dynaminism in .Net 4.0

few dayz ago came across THIS question.
the solution to this can easily be figured out by the new dynamic features introduced in .Net 4.0.
i have made a project to demonstrate this.
the main code in the project goes like this

publicstaticdynamic[] GetDynamicObject(DataTable dt, Dictionary<string, string> mapping)
List<dynamic> returnList = newList<dynamic>();
foreach (DataRow row in dt.Rows)
dynamic obj = newExpandoObject();
var objectDic = (IDictionary<string, object>)obj;
foreach (DataColumn column in dt.Columns)
                    objectDic.Add(mapping!=null?mapping.ContainsKey(column.ColumnName) ? mapping[column.ColumnName] : column.ColumnName:column.ColumnName,row[column]);
return returnList.ToArray();
        }The static method here named "GetDynamicObject" simply takes a data table(which can be populated by the data in the database) and a dictionary of…

Its a Dynamic(javascript) world

I thought we are living in a world which looked like this ||(or) mayb this LOL

being a web developer i was working with javascript and also at the same time i always preferred to work with something else... Silverlight, Flash mayb.. till recently.. i actually saw what JAVASCRIPT is || has become in the time i worked on ASP.Net MVC.

Javascript evolved from a dynamic sort of functional language that was differently implemented by nearly every browser(and yes that was for you IE6) and every one hated him and i thought it still is that ulgy thing. till i just stumbled upon THIS

This is an old video.. someone was just trying to bring the Javascript to server side. so now same developer /*Who a Javascript developer?*/ can work on both the sides.. client as well as web. and thought that things like these shouldn't be allowed on internet maybe because its a hour long video and now has around 233,492 views just consider the amount ot developer hours wasted her…
