Business

Wednesdays with MDriven

The meeting is hosted on meet.google.com/afd-iasd-tcs

2021 Autumn

Meet 13/10

It turned into an open discussion on this and that: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=usIvxUIT8wI

Meet 29/9

Debugging has many sides to it – from understanding data to stepping code. In tonight’s session we will look at some new features in the Model-debugger (your go-to-tool for investigating data) and also point out some resources to see how you can step through codedress code while running in Turnkey – and setting up your codedress code for isolated development or testing – but still with access to data.

During the session Derek asked about bringing up the debugger from your own code: https://wiki.mdriven.net/index.php/WPF_Debugger

Eco.WPF.WPFDequeuer.Active = true;  // The debugger (and all MDriven WPF UI needs the WPFDequeuer active to make derivations on screen evaluate)
var debugger=new MDriven.WPF.Debugger.OCLRuntimeDebuggerWPF(ecospace);
debugger.Show();

Meet 15/9

Finally we managed to catch the meeting on video. Check out 3D graphics with ThreeJS in MDriven : https://youtu.be/BmrWRObw1ZQ

2021 Summer is here!

Meet 2/6 2021 Next generation UX rules

Last session before Summer-break!
We have come a long way from when we first wrote the manifest of what constitutes a LineOfBusiness-application:  https://wiki.mdriven.net/index.php/Getting_to_the_bottom_of_the_Line_of_Business_Application

There are signs that it is not complete – and we invite everyone to think about how to evolve this manifesto. Moving to the web and focus on UX that can work on phones and the-web-at-large probably will result in changes to our governing document and then result in new possibilities in MDriven UI stuff.
Welcome!

Meet 19/5 2021 GoFundMe and TagExpander

Update on the Linux project.
Lets discuss the UI future – what is your gut feeling?
Notice that Microsoft is vague at best on this subject; Currently they say that WPF is ok, UWP is ok, WinUI is ok, Xamarin Forms is ok and will turn into MAUI that will be ok. They also say that UNO is ok. They then say that Web is ok, especially with Blazor on webassembly.
More?
Who cares?
What are the rewrites needed for you once the Modernity switch?

Meet 6/5 2021 GoFundMe and TagExpander

We have a GoFundMe campaign to move faster to Linux enablement of servers: https://blog.mdriven.net/gofundme/
TagExpander – new functionality to lower the fashion dream threshold

The video from the meet: https://youtu.be/nzc99wz6YQs

We also found out why the images would not show in the demo: it was an issue on the build machine not building the typescript into js for the core projects – fixed now – but need to figure out why the core compiler skips the TS…

Meet 21/4 2021 & 7/4

Due to two different technical mishaps the videos for these 2 sessions has been lost

Meet 24/3 2021 ViewModel-Editor – overview of usage and features Continued- Q&A – Rest or UI Allowed, ActAs-Expressions etc

RenderedBy  – this was a question we got just after the meeting was over – maybe we will bring up the next time – or something else completly.

Thanks for participating!

Meet 10/3 2021 ViewModel-Editor – overview of usage and features Continued- Q&A – DeepClone, Transform, Tajson and some debugger news

x TaJson

x Debugger news

Rest Allowed

UI Allowed

ActAs-Expressions

ViewInView

We did not get through the list this time either – partly because we added some things – we will keep at it!

The transform demo failed to show its point and I promised to explain why – so I checked it and it turned out we transformed a null object. This was due to us not having an enable expression on the action – so I only thought we had a vCurrent_ when we did not:

I fixed it:

And then we get a transformation from Thing/Details to Order/OrderRows:

Instead of the traditional puzzle games this Christmas we worked on a more generic puzzle – auto place algorithms.

Last year; 2020

Meet 16/12 – How about local servers in .net core for even faster roundtrip?

Video link: https://youtu.be/0vBQD01VKpI

Meet 2/12 – Services.MDriven.net – with SignalR notifications

Stuff like ODT to PDF transformation might as well be put in external (micro) services – but we sure do want to know when jobs are done in realtime!

Meet 18/11 – CodeDress – the ability to inject your c# into Turnkey by using the MDrivenFramework

Video link: https://youtu.be/enluF_mT6Xw – the demo ran into a few snags but issues are sorted in current builds

The agenda for 4/11 – Styling – without deep diving into css you can do a lot of styling with data in Turnkey

Video from the session: https://youtu.be/bynj6f_x5uk

The agenda for 21/10 – Discussion on the newly added Realtime functionality in MDrivenServer and MDrivenTurnkey

Video from the session: https://youtu.be/6Np2qBkiLdg

The agenda for 7/10 – Demo and discussion around the consideration of rendering of viewmodel defined UI’s in html

The video captured during this sessions is here https://youtu.be/i5u7J2j00r8

The agenda for 23/9 – Expose Rest, call it from javascript by enabling Cors, and authenticate

Thank you all for participating – here is the video:

The agenda for 9/8 – MDrivenServer overhaul

The important MDrivenServer has been given an overhaul regarding design and functions. Demo will show how to install it on local IIS and its new UI and functions.

The video from this session: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1fJnvsbMWpQ

Also – I ran into trouble when trying to show how to connect to MDrivenServer with PersistenceMapperWebAPI. Made a new video for that: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mc66E3bZYe8

The agenda for 27/8 – cache invalidation

Thanks to all that attended – caught this video of the event:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pj2CK6Xkufs&feature=youtu.be

Also read the background on cache invalidation:  cache-invalidation-a-real-problem-for-us-all

The agenda for the next meeting 12th August at 19.00 UTC+1

First session after summer holidays. We will show the new Wizard built into MDrivenDesigner. We need to lower the bar for newbies getting started with MDriven and maybe this wizard is on to something?

Video from the demo: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kvrw2_lX0mg

The agenda for the next meeting 17th of June at 19.00 UTC+1

Agenda for tonight: We will demo Localization support – for MDriven and Turnkey systems. In order to show the practical work with translations we will also demo the ExcelPlugin that is a practical tool for Turnkey systems

The agenda for the next meeting 3th of June at 19.00 UTC+1

Tonight we will demo the new Merge-Model functionality of MDriven. This is a great functionality if combined with to-the-point-small-example-models, because then you can simply add more examples and increase functionality of your system without actually doing any modelling on your own! It becomes  “much larger puzzle pieces”.  I had not fully anticipated the effect of the merge-model logic – but now that I have tried it out I think it is a revolution! Watch a video of it here: https://youtu.be/9_bWfAnY0_w

We invite to open discussion on all the challenges that exists in building large information systems that are easy to maintain and extend!

The agenda for the next meeting 20th of May at 19.00 UTC+1

Last fortnight it was Lars Olofsson presenting MDriven Turnkey architecture – thank you all that participated in the discussions around that subject.

This time we are going to demo how to replace part of the generated UI in MDrivenTurnkey  with components you easily control/build yourself. Components and replaceability is essential to get a Turnkey based system to fit any purpose. Since the distinction between the data provision (Gist defined by declarative view models) and rendered UI (Fashion) is so clear in the architecture it should be real easy to inject your own fashion-parts – and it is – join us tonight and see for yourself!

The agenda for the next meeting 6th of May at 19.00 UTC+1

Thanks to all of you that joined last time. Interesting to hear your thoughts on software transparency!
