Modern Applications


Design patterns are a lifesaver for Extensible Applications.

All of the major programming languages have evolved tremendously over the past decade especially to make the developers job easy. C# by Microsoft has been at the top of the game of adding plethora of easy to use and extremely powerful constructs ranging from async programming to functional programming. The well-developed programming languages have made it extremely easy for beginners to pick up coding and start developing applications quickly.

However, when developing extensible applications for the future, just using the language to write down logic for applications does not do the job well. We have to think about the overall design of the application for it to be able to scale and extend well. This means utilizing appropriate design patterns wherever applicable.

Introduction to MQTT protocol for IOT applications.

In my previous blog post, I explained why the widely used application-layer protocol HTTP is not suitable for the IOT applications. There are a number of application-layer protocols developed to serve the purpose of IOT like MQTT, AMQP, CoAP, XMPP, STOMP etc. In this blog post, I will provide an introduction to MQTT protocol, its design, architecture and use-case examples.

Why HTTP is not suitable for IOT applications.

When developing modern web-applications, the most commonly used application layer protocol is HTTP. It is suitable for serving hypermedia resources in a request-response fashion over the internet. However, when it comes to the Internet of things(IOT), it tends to perform poorly mainly because it was designed to be a reliable but heavy-weight protocol for the world-wide-web. In this blog, I want to highlight the issues with HTTP with respect to IOT applications.

Computer Vision: What does Ai see in the real world on Microsoft platform?

Microsoft Cognitive Services allows for your applications, websites, or services to become more aware of the natural surroundings by giving ability to hear, see, speak, and understand the user and environment around the user.  So, what can a computer see? Do android dream of electric sheep?

The four Ws of IoT: Who, What, Where, and Why

Tell me a company that does not want to IoT a device and I will give you a dollar -- Ok. Let's not get ahead of ourselves there. I know they exists but I am here to go over the concept of IoT and why it might matter to you (if it does not already). This blog post is go over the who, what, where, and why of this concept known to us as Internet of Things. We will discuss how in the next series of blogs.

Single Sign-On in the Wild

A rash of rogue food orders with the company Deliveroo allowed hungry hackers to go on a booze and food binge in 2016—they logged in to customers’ accounts, changed delivery addresses, and ordered whatever they pleased.
