    For those who have worked with open-source technologies for some time would know that containerisation of apps and services is not a new concept.

  8. jQuery and ASP.NET AJAX Postbacks or Partial Page Rendering with UpdatePanel’s

    Recently I was working on a web application that made use of the new jQuery library for client-side UI enhancements.
