Writing a Web Server from Scratch
Mainly for the fun of it, I decided to look into what's involved in writing my own web server.  I quickly became enthralled with the idea and the fascinating things I was discovering about browsers, compliance with browser expectations in the responses, and the sheer pleasure of writing a lean and mean web server.  So, this article (as requested a few weeks ago by several people) describes the process.

Creating an Angular application end-2-end – Part 1
In this post series I want to demonstrate how to create a full blown application end-to-end which uses Angular JS on the client, ASP.NET vNext and/or Node JS on the server. Architectural patterns that I am going to use are command query responsibility segregation (CQRS), event sourcing (ES) and (some light) domain driven design (DDD). As a write store we will use GetEventStore. For our read models we use MongoDB and ElasticSearch. I will develop the application on Linux Ubuntu 14.10 and also show that it runs without modifications on Windows 8.1 or Windows Server 2012.
