Looping Through Fields in a Record Returned from a LINQ Query

Looping Through Fields in a Record Returned from a LINQ Query

One situation that does not have an intuitive solution to is looping through fields in a result set returned by a LINQ query.  While the strong typing of the fields returned in these records is nice and convenient, there are times where I don’t want everything returned from the table.  This isn’t much of an issue when you only want a handful of fields, however when the table has, say, 50, 60, or…

Entity Framework and DateTime

Entity Framework and DateTime

Over the past couple of weeks, I have been dealing with an error being thrown in a service I am building using Entity Framework 6 and SQL Server 2008:

System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException: The conversion of a datetime2 data type to a datetime data type resulted in an out-of-range value.

Keep in mind that the error above is not being thrown by Entity Framework, but by the database.  Come to find…

ngCordova and the Ionic Framework

ngCordova and the Ionic Framework

ngCordova-ionic-headerOver the past year or so, I have gotten hooked on AngularJS. I have also been spending the majority of my side project time working on mobile development using the Ionic Framework. One of the projects I am working centers primarily around the device’s camera, so I have started working on accessing it through the use of the Cordova (PhoneGap) camera plugin.

The Ionic team has been motoring hard on…

Beta Is Just That

Beta Is Just That

I was perusing the Ionic Framework forums last night and came across a reply to a post regarding the latest beta release (they are working hard toward their v1 release), and one developer made a comment saying that the last 4 (beta) releases have broken functionality in his production application code, and that this pattern of fact was becoming a joke.


The only joke here is that this…

Winter Survival

As we are at the tail end of one of the most brutal winters in recent Minnesota history, it’s not just the physical dust that needs to be cleared off of most surfaces, it is also the mental dust. It is a natural inclination for many, if not most, to just retreat into our caves during these past Winter months, with the idea of hibernation being almost like a magnet. Trips to the gym became scarce,…

Web Hosting Rip-Off Artists Dressed in an MSA

Web Hosting Rip-Off Artists Dressed in an MSA

Ok, I just have to rant for a minute or two.

Let me preface this first with the standard disclaimer–these opinions are mine, and mine alone, and not those of my employer.

I currently work for a subsidiary owned by a large health plan.  We are employees of the health plan, but operate relatively autonomously, however when it comes to vendors, we are stuck with the old-school corporate…

This is the beginning of my attempt to capture snippets of code or quick tips I come across that helped me resolve issues or that I may use from time to time, but always end up going back and googling to find it later.

Visual Studio, NuGet (Powershell), and VMware

I just built a new Windows 7 virtual machine on my Macbook Pro for development using Visual Studio 2013. Everything installs smoothly and I go to fire up VS, and I get an error in the NuGet Console saying that my Nuget_profile.ps1 is not signed. Now, this…
