Michael Crump

The great thing about meeting new people is that you invariably take away a little bit of who they are. I have been following Michael’s blog for a while now and it was really great to catch up with him.

I had the privilege of asking him a few questions about himself, Telerik, XAML and IT in general. What I took away was that Michael is an extremely humble man, given all that he is involved with. Check out the Q&A below, and learn more about Michael Crump.

The Daily Six Pack

Some people are doubters, but WordPress core is probably one of the most secure platforms you can choose to put your site on. Jason Cosper clears up this debate once and for all. Then, Stephen Zaharuk brings us another ‘Going from C# to Objective-C’ post.

Julie Larson-Green makes a rare public appearance to talk about Windows 8.1 (Blue) and Paul Thurrott takes out the interesting bits for us. Be sure to check out this post. It makes for some interesting reading. The Windows Club then reviews the latest Ashampoo PhotoCommander 11 and gives away 11 licenses to The Windows Club readers.

Lastly, App security is an underestimated, and often overlooked but nevertheless important topic in software development. Can you remember when last you wrote secure code, or explicitly secured code? There are so many reasons for securing your application and Sam Nasr enlightens us on why it should be a developer’s top priority.

Today is Friday and for those ready to start the weekend, kick back with The Daily Six Pack. Have a great day folks.
