Welcome to Code Hacker's Domain!
Code Hacker is a software development site that utilizes ASP.NET, AJAX, iTextSharp, jQuery, and SQL Server.
Definition of Code Hacker
Code - the symbolic arrangement of statements or instructions in a computer program in which letters, digits, etc. are represented as binary numbers; the set of instructions in such a program.
Hacker - one who is proficient at using or programming a computer - a computer buff.
We are not a Cracker site. This is the definition of a Cracker:
'A cracker is someone who breaks into someone else's computer system, often on a network; bypasses passwords or licenses in computer programs; or in other ways intentionally breaches computer security. A cracker can be doing this for profit, maliciously, for some altruistic purpose or cause, or because the challenge is there. Some breaking-and-entering has been done ostensibly to point out weaknesses in a site's security system.' -- Definition from Whatis.com
It appears that the crackers did not like this name because people thought that they lived in Georgia or Florida. So they called themselves hackers, but they are still crackers.
Software development and testing includes:
- ASP.NET Applications
- iTextSharp Applications
- jQuery Applications
- Mobile Applications
- SQL Server Applications
This website is now using ASP.NET 4.0 and SQL Server 2008.
It is best to use Microsoft Internet Explorer to browse this website. Other browsers may not work due to Microsoft's new .NET design features.
iText and iTextSharp Update
A lot of emails have been coming in with this common question - How come your chapter titles
on your iTextSharp web page do not match the chapter titles from Bruno Lowagie's book
iText in Action?
Well dear coders, the answer is simple. Bruno's first publication was so successful that he
released a second publication. Our code is based on his first publication.
Please purchase this book if you want to master PDF document creation. We do not have the
time to answer the emails that keep coming in about how this PDF method works or how to perform
a specific PDF modification.
Bruno has done an excellent job in explaining PDF document creation and manipulation. You should be
able to master PDF documents by simply reading his book and examining the source code on our iTextSharp
web page. Because after all, it is Bruno's source code translated to C#.
ABCpdf Really Rocks!
We have been using iTextSharp for on-the-fly PDF document creation. However, we had a couple of clients that
needed more advanced PDF documents and the ability to convert these PDF documents into different formats such
as TIFF and Microsoft Word. We tested over ten products and then decided to go with ABCpdf. We really like
what this .NET component can do!
Check out the ABCpdf Development section for examples.
Telerik RAD Tools are #1 in Fast Application Development!
We just recently received a large contract to redesign and rewrite a major company's website. We spent four
days discussing the new website design and all source code that would support it. It was decided that we
were going to have to use RAD development tools in order to get the job right and finish within the project
deadline. After reviewing and testing several RAD tools, we finally chose Telerik.
Their RAD tools were easy to use and their Visual Style Builder provided
an excellent professional look to our client's website!
Check out the Telerik RAD Tools Development section for examples on how easy RAD tools can help make
application development a breeze.
TaffyDB is a cool tool to bring your AJAX applications to the next level!
We have added a new section in the Sidebar Menu named 'jQuery Snippets'. If you need a quick jQuery snippet or want to know
how certain jQuery methods work, then please check out this section! This section will be maintained by Joker Wild and will
contain regular updates - so check back often!
