About WindowsBinary


I decided to build WindowsBinary because I had decided to cover the release of Windows 10 more closely than previous editions of Windows, and I also wanted a separate web presence/brand to republish my articles on.

A few weeks back, I decided that it would be an interesting exercise to build a new site using the recently released Visual Studio 2015, and concentrate on the new site whilst honing my skills using the latest and greatest technologies as they emerge.

Release Notes

v1.3

Added pagination support

v1.2

Added a spinner to the pre-load of the articles

v1.1

The site, although you can’t really tell visually, has been re-written from scratch.  The former SPA is gone, replaced with a brand new ASP.NET 5 Angular.js version using gulp/NPM/Bower.  This was my first attempt, and it took a little while to get used to the nature of Angular.  Not that I’ve achieved anything special here, but it does a CORS XHR request to Sanders Technology to obtain the json response, and then pretty much renders it out onto the page.  Nothing flash.

v1.0

The new site initially will be a Single Page Application (SPA) implementing a basic Web API and potentially integrating into multiple identity providers.  Obviously there’s not much Windows 10 coverage in that for now, but once the new Operating System launches, I plan to build upon it.
