I had an excellent time last night at the Northern NJ .NET User Group in Parsippany, NJ. I spoke about “Taking Control of Your ORM with Entity Framework Code-First”. Thanks to everyone that came out and to the meetup organizers for putting the event together. Every time I present, I challenge the group to which I’m presenting to give to a worthy cause if they enjoyed the talk. Last night, N3UG broke a record by meeting their goal in less than a day. As a result, I’m happy to report that at least 3 people will get access to clean drinking water. If you attended and enjoyed it–or even if you

I had an excellent time tonight at the New York ALT.NET Meetup in New York, NY. I spoke about “Taking Control of Your ORM with Entity Framework Code-First”.

In all seriousness, I had a great time meeting everyone, and

ASP.NET’s IsAjaxRequest Doesn’t Work with AngularJS

In ASP.NET, it can be helpful to know when a request is an AJAX call (made via XMLHttpRequest, that is) as apposed to a standard HTTP request. This can be detected with ASP.NET’s Request.IsAjaxRequest() method. This helper method returns true whenever the HTTP request contains the header “X-Requested-With” with a value of “XMLHttpRequest“. JQuery handles this automatically for you with any calls made using its $.ajax() method. AngularJS, however, does not. When you’re creating and AngularJS application, this can make it difficult to detect when a request to the server was an AJAX request or not. Have no fear, though, you can fix this problem with one simple line of code in our AngularJS
