Decoupling OWIN external authentication from ASP.NET Identity
One of the nicest features of the forthcoming release for the ASP.NET Web stack is the inclusion of bits around external authentication. It makes it stupid easy to add login capability through Google, Facebook and such. Coupled to this in the default...
When the Google beats on your SignalR
Around the end of April, I put v11 of POP Forums into production on CoasterBuzz . Probably the biggest feature of that release was all of the new real-time stuff in the forum, with new posts appearing before your eyes and in the topic lists and such....
Lessons from live blogging with Azure (nothing bad happened)
I wrote previously about how I built a "live blog" app in Azure, so we could use it for PointBuzz during last week's festivities at Cedar Point. Not surprisingly, it worked just fine. As I expected, the whole thing was kind of overkill. Sweet...
Building a live blog app in Windows Azure
If you're a technology nerd, then you've probably seen one technology news site or another do a "live blog" at some product announcement. This is basically a page on the Web where text and photo updates stream into the page as you sit there...

POP Forums v11 Beta for MVC posted on CodePlex
I won’t repost all of the changes here, but this is the version of the app that gets all real-time and stuff (thank you, SignalR!). I also spent some time refining the UI. You can get these naughty bits, and the overall change log, here: http://popforums...
SignalR really changes everything
I think I started to mess with HTML in 1995, and the Internets became the focus of my profession in 1999. The fun thing about this is that I’ve watched the tools and development technology evolve most of the way, and it has been an awesome ride. That...
Real-world SignalR example, ditching ghetto long polling
One of the highlights of BUILD last week was the announcement that SignalR, a framework for real-time client to server (or cloud, if you will) communication, would be a real supported thing now with the weight of Microsoft behind it. Love the open source...
