In .NET working with configuration is really easy and there are bunch of .NET classes that rely on config values so you do not have to specify values in their constructors.

This article is base don the article I wrote in September last year. Basically I wrote this piece of code because I needed something really lite for one way binding.

Working with GoogleMaps in jQuery style
jQuery plugin for GoogleMaps

I've used GoogleMaps on several web projects and it seemed to me that I'm repeating a lot of code used in the previous projects which lead me to write a common Javascript library to help me easily reuse the code by only copying the JavaScript library to a project or referencing it from CDN. I could not think of a better way to build this library than to use jQuery and build a pligin for this. ...read more

Benefits of binary serialization in C#
Manipulationg with object instances using binary serialization in C#
 
0
By default object instances in .NET are never "trully" clonned. Instead .NET is doing shallow copy of instances which means if you have one variable which is object instance and you assign that variable to other variable, both of them will point the same instance of that object. Basically you created two pointers of the same object instance. ...read more

Basically HTML is a strict structure in terms of node sets and attribute sets, but in general more documents online are not exactly following the proper structure since browsers usually manage to deal with rendering out the document in UI.
