Machine Learning -> GO

I just stumbled on this article so this is a shameless repost enjoy:

A really great implementation of machine learning with existing technologies.

Also, a real culmination of all the tools we have worked on over the years.

Really sweet stuff.

Have a look here


Shameless Mongo Restore

Found originally on but this solution sounds way better then writing custom code. Consider the Team members in all you do ….


You can do this with the command line tools mongodump and mongorestore.

Use mongodump –db [dbname] on the source computer to export all collections of the database into files

which are stored in the directory /dump/[collection].bson. Copy the files to the target computer

and then use mongorestore –db [dbname] [collection].bson to import the generated files into the consolidated database.

The contents will be appended to the existing collections as if you would use the insert command.

When you want to do it like a senior sysadmin: both command line tools have command line options to perform said operations on a remote system

and you can pipe the output of mongodump right into mongorestore, so when you want to show off you could do it with one console

command from a remote system. But when this is a one time thing and command line trickery is not your passion, rather stick to files.


or automate completely ..hmmmm !!

Open Package Manager Console

Install-Package Costura.Fody -Version

Have a great day!!!!! (and WebAPI too!!)

Still writing Angular & Knockout?? Oh my !!

With so many of these frameworks you might as well surrender and just add them all to your project.


I have successfully accomplished this in my last several projects and as long as you keep it clean there is really no issue to speak of other than what flavor you want to use today. So for example Angular on the front end. Knockout for all reports & jquery everywhere etc…

At some point you just have to stop fighting 🙂

(hmmmm…) Exploring ServiceStack’s simple and fast web services on .NET Core — Scott Hanselman’s Blog(shameless repost)

I’ve been doing .NET Open Source since the beginning. Trying to get patches into log4net was hard without things like GitHub and Twitter. We emailed .patch files around and hoped for the best. It was a good time. There’s been a lot of feelings around .NET Open Source over the last decade or so -…
