Come take a walk through the “black art” of cryptography.
In this course Robert will teach you about public/private and symmetric encryption, hashing, digital signatures, and a dash of salt. You will review the basics of cryptography and what techniques are appropriate for various situations. Most importantly you will discover practical techniques for securing content received on public web sites. Last but not least you will review .NET classes to use for cryptography, how ASP.NET uses cryptography, and how to protect sections of the web.config file. Start now by going directly to the TOC.
Yesterday we published a few courses from our veteran authors, Robert is another one of our polished authors. He has been developing and designing websites over the past 15 years. His content always proves to be packed with information to help build out your skill set. He has a number of other courses, click here to check them out. Please don’t forget to leave us feedback on the course, and to rate all the courses. We strive to continually improve, and appreciate your help with that! I hope you enjoy this course, and keep watching for more.
I had the opportunity to sit down with Pinal Dave and Aaron Skonnard at Pluralsight’s 2013 Author Summit to discuss the developer community in India and how immense it is. I’ve always been fascinated with the Indian culture, have a lot of friends there, and absolutely love the food so it was fun to talk with Pinal and Aaron and hear more details about the community and what Pluralsight is doing in that area of the world.
While Visual Studio is often considered to be the exclusive domain of the .NET or C++ developer, it actually has a long history of supporting other languages and environments. In addition to supporting Java development through Java extensions, nVidia recently announced Nsight Tegra, a Visual Studio based development environment for the Android OS. But of course there are thousands of other developers that use Eclipse for Android as well as those that use XCode for iOS development. So this begs the question, which integrated development environment is best? Let us know why in the comments section!
I’ve always had pretty good typing skills, but sometimes I’m not quite as accurate as I’d like. As a younger developer, I’d sometimes miss the Tab key and accidentally mash CAPSLOCK instead. If you work on a PC you’ve probably done the same with the Insert key. I’m pretty sure that’s what happened to this guy:
Software craftsmanship is very important to me and the dev team here at Pluralsight. And one aspect of that is continuous learning – improving yourself instead of remaining stagnant. As Bob Martin points out in The Clean Coder, if you have the luxury of working 40 hours a week as a programmer, you owe it to yourself and to your employer to spend a significant amount of your own time each week sharpening your skills as a craftsman. One way to do this is to stretch yourself and learn a new language – preferably one that stretches how you think about programming beyond your current paradigm.
I’ve personally started down that journey recently by learning Clojure.
There are several reasons why this makes sense for me personally, and I’ll share some of the main motivations in this article.
Since Pluralsight’s inception, we have always felt that the quality of our content is the key to our success. We put a lot of effort into finding quality authors who are experts in their field and into reviewing the submitted courses for both video and technical quality. But the best measure of the quality of our content is how you feel about each course you watch. We want your feedback so that we can make sure the courses we are providing meet your high standards.
To this end, we have just released the ability for you to rate the courses you watch. We will use this feedback to refine our course library and ensure it remains the highest quality hardcore developer training available.
