Remembering my continuous, infinite and still going C# learning journey, I found myself in front of another C# book that teaches through a really different approach to make you understand the benefits of this language, In this case I am talking about C# In Depth, by Jon Skeet (3rd Edition was the latests edition at the time) , a senior engineer at Google, this is the third book I picked up when I decided to take up on C# and everything it had to offer. As usual, this is one of the top books that get mentioned a lot when asking around for C# books, and in my case, i had my eyes on it for quite some time back in those days.
You could not simply go online asking around for good C# books without hearing claims of the “yellow book” every now and them.
When I decided to pick up C# as my main language for learning programming (after trying some C++ and Java to no avail), I also found the famous C# Programming Yellow book by Rob Miles as a primary recommendation from all over the internet back at that time, So, of course, without giving it too much tough I gave it a chance. and thus became the second programming related book that I gave a try.

During my college days (well, when I was Exactly halfway through college), I looked upon myself and saw that I had hit a wall in programming, I was at that stage where you can’t consider yourself a complete newbie (i.e knew a little about OOP using Java and C++, made some really simple programs that used recursiveness, data structures and so on) , but also was at the stage where I could not consider myself above average at any specific language (with above average I mean being able to create bigger programs than BMI calculators and your typical College student projects ) so I decided to pick a framework and a language and try to go as far as I could with them, something which is usually the hardest part for someone with no real experience and has no idea what to choose.
Microsoft released the Windows 10 creators update, and with it came new ways to empower creators arround the globe, one of the programs that picked my interest was the Xbox Live Creators Program, which would allow indie developers to release software directly into the a special corner of the Xbox live store with come some integrations with the Xbox live system.
Xbox live Creators is both similar and different from the ID@Xbox program that Microsoft has been running for a while to let developers join the world of Xbox.
Approbado.com was developed by me and my brother as a side project to talk about news, reviews and general tech content aimed towards hispanic internet users, but the project didn’t do so well and is currently paralyzed (and probably dead and buried forever).
As is typical in my post-mortem blog posts, I will post about the good and the bad of it.
From the moment of this post, its been a little more of a year since i released my first app ever (and my most successful one), Reflect-It for windows 10 and windows 10 mobile, with a total of 1781 Installs and I will make an insight about all that has happened during that time.
If you tried to add code directly into your WordPress post, using either the <script> tag to add your shader code or the WebGL dependencies, you have realized that it may not work as intended, that’s because WordPress does several formating to any text inside your post editor even if it is in html mode.
Lets review how to work with a html canvas and webgl inside your WordPress posts and content using a little html hack.
