Electron 1.0

For the last two years, Electron has helped developers build cross platform desktop apps using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. Now we’re excited to share a major milestone for our framework and for the community that created it. The release of Electron 1.0 is now available from electron.atom.io.


Electron 1.0 represents a major milestone in API stability and maturity. This release allows you to build apps that act and feel truly native on Windows, Mac, and Linux. Building Electron apps is easier than ever with new docs, new tools, and a new app to walk you through the Electron APIs.

If you’re ready to build your very first Electron app, here’s a quick start guide to help you get started.

Microsoft has hit $1 trillion in all-time revenue, and with more profit than Apple


Last quarter, Microsoft hit a major milestone: $1 trillion in all-time cumulative revenue reports technology consultant Jeff Reifman.

He noticed the milestone while researching a post about Microsoft's tax breaks in the state of Washington.

Microsoft hit the milestone in its last quarter, according to the spreadsheet posted by Reifman.

Apple hit $1 trillion in revenue earlier, in 2015, his research shows.

On the other hand, when it comes to profits, Microsoft has come out slightly ahead of Apple: $261.6 billion in cumulative profits for Apple, and slightly more, $265.2 billion for Microsoft.

Amazon and Google, younger companies than Microsoft and Apple, have not yet hit the $1 trillion revenue mark, but are about half-way there, Reifman reports. Amazon, for instance, came in at $545 billion in all time revenue but only $3.31 billion in profit.

As for Google, Reifman's research shows it has so far earned $417.3 billion in all-time revenue with $96.3 billion, cumulatively, in profit.

Introducing the IIS Administration API

The IIS team has been working on a new RESTful API to manage your IIS configuration. While still under development, the team was eager to share a preview of the new API. The API allows configuration of IIS resources such as authorization rules, modules, and applications.


The API has been built with Hypertext Application Language (HAL) to allows APIs to have built-in discoverability. Starting at the root of the API, you can browse the entire API surface.

In addition to the API, the IIS team has also built an API explorer that makes it easy to browse the entire API surface.

Head on over to https://jimmyca-srv2.cloudapp.net:55539 and use the access token OgMks6N7CtZTptX2DTnLe8JvkmATOuqw1ZJnZzK1RojeYs251Wlfvg to check out the API explorer.

If you want more information visit the IIS blog at https://blogs.iis.net/adminapi/  and watch that space as the IIS team continues to post updates.

ASP.NET LinkButton: children disappears after postback

I have a LinkButton with image and label inside it or tags i and span as in the following picture.example_linkbutton

The code in the page is:

<asp:LinkButton ID="LinkButton1" runat="server">
    <i class="glyphicon glyphicon-plus"></i>
    <span class="js-add-button" runat="server" id="Span1">Add New</span>

After a postback everything inside the LinkButton disappeared. I've spent two days to understand why and the solution is very easy.

<asp:LinkButton ID="LinkButton1" runat="server">
    <i class="glyphicon glyphicon-plus" runat="server"></i>
    <span class="js-add-button" runat="server" id="Span1">Add New</span>

The tag i doesn't have runat="server" and for that you lost all content inside the LinkButton.

Happy coding!
